I have been working at FiveStars full-time for more than a year

Pros

Family camaraderie, catered lunches and a breakfast and lunch bar when there is not catering, jeans and casual clothes to work everyday (unless you are in sales, so they are a bit more buttoned up), outdoor deck with foosball table, nap room, fun and quirky people, and dog friendly!

Cons

As a startup, you can expect long hours. However, work doesn't always feel like work since people are always hanging out, playing music, or enjoying a beer as they work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I like turtles!

    I have been working at FiveStars full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I've been working at FiveStars for about 8 months and have loved every day of it. I love the culture, and the opportunity to own projects that I would never have been given elsewhere. There are crazy hectic times, and there are fun relaxed times. What's important, and keeps me satisfied, is that we all go through them together -- as a team.

    Cons

    Talk to anyone at a start-up and they will tell you that it's a struggle to maintain a healthy work-life balance. FiveStars is no different. You have to consciously make the effort to put aside your phone and take a nap at Dolores Park.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice. I believe in you, as much as you believe in me =]
