I have been working at Credit Karma full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

- Pro-consumer product that gives you a sense of pride & accomplishment at the end of the day
- Open culture where employees are given trust & space to do their work.
- Co-workers are talented & motivated: people like to get things done and make an impact.
- Heavily analytics driven decision-making which permeates all aspects of the company.
- Plenty of interesting challenges to tackle (too much so - we can't hire fast enough!).
- Employee benefits are all top notch: 401k, health benefits, constant company outings & game nights, fully stocked kitchens, and a coffee lover's haven.

Cons

With the growth that the company is experiencing, aspects of team structure & office dynamics tend to be in constant flux. The growing pains are handled well overall, but it can be a bit jarring at times if you're not used to a rapid growth environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Great job with keeping the company's core values & culture in place so far with the rapid growth - just have to keep on it!

    Pros

    I love working for a winning company like Credit Karma! It's thrilling to pursue the business opportunities we have available, and everyone seems to believe in the mission. Engineers work on interesting challenges, and can pick areas of interest to some degree.

    Culture is really open. You hear conversations happening around you and can chime in. You can contribute ideas cross-functional team; engineers are actively encouraged to make business and product suggestions, for instance.

    Amazing office space in the heart of SF. Great snacks and coffee. Fun events like company picnics and comedy club.

    Cons

    Compensation is lower than many other Silicon Valley companies.

    Pros

    Overall it's really an amazing work environment. People are super smart, talented, friendly, and passionate about the product and company. Very collaborative with no big egos or office politics. Leadership is incredibly transparent and there's a culture of individual contribution from the top down. Merit is given where it's due.

    Great work/life balance and tons of fun events, competitions, happy hours, etc. happening both in the office and off-site.

    Essentially, everyone works hard together to continually improve a product they're passionate about and has a lot of fun along the way.

    Cons

    Standard growing pains of a company during a time of high growth. Ambitious--but also exciting--goals for the company in every area, maintaining the current culture that everyone loves, and running out of office space--though this is already being resolved. All pretty much negligible in my opinion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue making culture a priority and give a lot of attention to maintaining the currently amazing work environment as the company continues to rapidly grow. Other than that, just keep doing what you're doing!
