I have been working at LevelUp full-time

Pros

Great work environment with awesome benefits including free food and other perks. For a software engineer it provides awesome startup culture with benefits of a financial firm. Most engineers are highly experienced or are from best schools like MIT.

Cons

Drive to Boston from outside is the hard part.

Advice to Management

more stock options for engineers

    I have been working at LevelUp full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of young, bright employees, great benefits, flexible schedule

    Cons

    Overall lack of communication and focus

    Advice to Management

    LevelUp/SCVNGR definitely has potential as a product, that I truly believe. However, the management is not focused at all. They constantly change their strategy and lack communication with all facets of the company. They're also constantly putting off some seriously needed updates to the product itself - things that have been requested for over a year at this point. When I first started working here I was extremely excited, and now I'm kind of lackluster about the whole thing. The company will still probably be in business for another year, but I don't know about the future beyond that. It's frustrating when you see all the issues within the company, but you can't do a thing about it. LevelUp is really good at hiring talented people; they're also really bad at keeping them.

    I worked at LevelUp part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of young people, huge potential for growth in the career path and industry. Get to work outside and not be stuck in an office.

    Cons

    Not the best pay or benefits. did not cover expenses for traveling to the daily events and also not eligible for 401k plan.

    Advice to Management

    You should cover expenses for employees to travel to work events. Also keep employees in the loop for what is going in at the company as it is a startup.
