Chance to be a part of something special

Marketing (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

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

ProsMany companies talk about reshaping an industry, but Lending Club is one of the select few that is actually achieving this lofty goal. Growth comes in monthly leaps that just seem to keep accelerating, leading to ever-larger opportunities. While every company talks about scale, we really (have to) mean it, which leads to an intriguing focus on how do we keep more efficient and do bigger things. Working here is definitely a chance to be a part of something special.

Overall, company is stocked with really great people working towards a common goal. Surprisingly good work/life balance and plenty of opportunities to make friends.

ConsWith rapid growth can come rapid change, which can be turbulent. Your role and expectations can be radically different every six months - the bar keeps getting higher - but that generally leads to bigger and better opportunities for those who are willing to step up and do more. If you're looking for a job where you punch in, make your widgets and then punch out, this is not the place for you you.

Advice to Senior ManagementStay nimble and stay focused. As the company (again) doubles its staff, management gets exponentially more challenging. Keep finding and rewarding good people; get the under-performers out faster. Invest more in crafting a positive and and exceptional culture that matches our success.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
