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

Pros

FixYa is a fast paced, fun, and collaborative workplace where your hard work will help millions of users everyday. From the web to the mobile web and mobile apps, collaboration along with sharing of ideas and feedback across departments is also encouraged and embraced. You will quickly contribute and learn a lot about the many offerings and platforms supported by FixYa.

Free lunches on Monday along with a fully stocked kitchen, on-site cafeteria , and free gym are just a few of the pros at FixYa. The office is also located within walking distance to the Hillsdale Caltrain station.

Cons

Working with a remote engineering team can be challenging. Although, they are highly skilled and put forth extraordinary effort to make themselves available late nights and early mornings to help ease the time difference.

    I worked at FixYa full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good idea. Strong Engineering Team but still happered my high turnover.

    Cons

    100% Turnover while I was there. Strategy changed daily.
    No trust of employees. Watch the clock like a factory. Anyone WFH was "ripping off the company".
    Several people I know quit within days or weeks.

    I worked at FixYa full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A great team, all the people i've worked with were super nice and very knowledgeable in their field. FixYa is the leading website in it's domain and as such you are exposed to real trends in the "fixin'" world and you can really help people out with their problems, met so many people that i've told them i work and fixya and had a a really good experience with the website always warms your heart

    Cons

    sometimes working long hours (it's high tech after all), process takes time and not always ending the way you envisioned it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep going strong, let the PM more freedom and you'll get the best results
