Pros

Great bennies for a company its size, agile teams, open to suggestions from line employees, up and coming in the startup world, I can talk to the CEO any day of the week (if he's not out meeting with a customer or something). Good place!

Cons

Can't think of any....sometimes, we're pretty busy, I guess. But generally, the supervisors get the whole work-life balance thing, and there's pretty good PTO, so it works out.

    Pros

    The people are fantastic. I've never liked my coworkers this much at a job before. Chef has done a good job at hiring people who work hard, are easy going, and like to have fun.

    Cons

    Chef is still a young company so there are some growing pains and disorganized bits. If you don't deal well with constant change, you might not fit in here.

    Pros

    People care about my well-being. Initiative is rewarded. Constantly challenged and surrounded by smart people working at their best, and I'm always working to keep up.

    Opportunities to try new things are endless.

    Warm and welcoming culture, best I've ever worked around.

    Upper management is stacked with the best and brightest people in the industry.

    Cons

    Dozens of people have talked to me about having severe cases of imposter syndrome after working here. So many smart people all the time, it gets overwhelming.

    I know that's like a BS "What is your greatest weakness" interview question, but seriously. It's an issue, sometimes I just feel paralyzed by insecurity for weeks at a time, and it seems to be something that happens to lots of people.

    It can be very difficult for information to flow correctly from customers & customer-facing teams to engineering.
