Pros

Great people to work with - smart, motivated co-workers who take pride in their work and in the product. Pay is good, with some cool benefits. My time here for almost 1 year has been a breeze. I look forward to work every day and love the work environment. Being surrounded by smart people does help and helps you grow not only in the company but also as a professional.

Cons

Open work environment can get noisy/crowded at times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Great initiative by management in having an open door policy. Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    To me, the combination one looks for when joining a rapidly expanding technology company in an ideal world is the combination of: a proven/experienced management, a massive addressable market, and a good work environment. Prosper seems to be one of the few firms that has this combination and as a result, is growing very rapidly in both revenue and headcount.

    Cons

    Benefits have been improving rapidly and now are close to industry norms, which is great. Previously, that would have been my only complaint.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep executing and hiring top talent to ensure continued rapid growth and expansion.

    I have been working at Prosper.com full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Forward-looking senior management with a stellar track record have successfully turned around a company that was executing poorly two years ago. The idea of p2p lending has always been a good one, the current team has the right mix of experience, pragmatism, and resources (including VC funding) to realize its potential of explosive growth, and the company is hiring top-tier talent at a rapid clip, in all disciplines.

    Cons

    The team is very committed and works extremely hard - sometimes to a fault in terms of long hours.
    HR / benefits are somewhat poorly organized, although improvements have been committed to for the near future.
    Technology has a deep "financial industry" pedigree and some of it is a bit archaic, this too is being addressed.
    Loan verification agents do not have a clear career path for promotions or other long-term rewards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on hiring strong talent, including in HR and technology. Weed out underperforming team members.
