Pros

Full of very smart, young, ambitious people. Great leadership (Mostly ex-Amazonians) and vision. Really trying to change local commerce.

Cons

Culture has suffered a bit since going public, and things are constantly crazy/unorganized. If you like organized chaos, this is the place for you. However, they don't pay as well as other companies its size.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay your good people more. Don't wait for them to leave, before offering them more money.

    Pros

    One of the few jobs in America where you can work less than 40 hours a week and get paid over 100K. Great Culture and as long as you perform well you can pretty much be your own boss and do anything you want. Lots of Freedom and Lots of Money = a Good Job.

    Cons

    very disorganized and chaotic environment. Goals and expectations are constantly changing. You must be able to adapt and enjoy constant change or you will hate this job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep goals more consistent and treat employees better.

    Pros

    Great team, moves fast, exciting projects are always available to work on. A product that has the potential to change the way people to business locally and truly help local merchants.

    Cons

    While we move fast, we also can take way to long to execute. When things are finally shipped, they're not always of an amazing quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more inspiration and direction toward the future. It feels like we're constantly going off in every direction at once and there are always multiple teams working on overlapping tasks with poor or no alignment.
