Pros

It's a friendly, but intense environment, that really challenges one to do their very best.

Cons

Sometimes the workloads can get a little too intense, and the "firedrills" sometimes happen far too often.

Advice to Management

Take time to celebrate the successes

    I have been working at Care.com (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Make your own hours. Meet your own families. You don't have any kind of upper management.. Really, how many people hire you and the money you make is dependent on how many people you contact (or their contacting you) and what you list as how much you want to be paid hourly. This job was perfect for me because 1) I found and met a family I am compatible with and 2) the flexibility of making my own hours was great because I had a wedding to plan so I needed any extra time I could get outside of working hours. It's a rather simple process.

    Cons

    You really will not get anyone come after you to interview unless you pay for a background check - which, realistically, is not necessarily a Con since the family's are looking out for their best interest.. its mainly what you have to pay in order to have to do those background checks. You can pay for other features so your profile is more prominent on Care.com to people looking to hire, but lots of online business like this are going to work that way. You have to give in order to receive.
