I have been working at Quirky full-time for less than a year

Pros

Work with incredibly smart people of every trade
Great community - no place for egomaniacs (for heaven's sake, we have the world's least important CEO @benkaufman !)
Fast pace, great rewards, great work environment
Feels like Google meets college library
Happy employees do great work, and lots of it

Cons

If one is looking for a cushy 9-5, stay away.
Do not wait for anyone to tell you what your next task is - that's your job!

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

    Pros

    I work with some of the most competent and awesome people you could ask for. It's incredible to see the amount of meaningful, quality work that gets done at Quirky by people who seem to genuinely enjoy their jobs. I have as close to full autonomy in my work as an engineer as one could imagine being practical, as well as the resources to make sure I have all the tools I need to do my job effectively. The office design alone makes it quite difficult to have a bad day -- warm lighting, open spaces, and smiling faces. Opportunities for growth at Quirky abound.

    Cons

    They expect a lot out of their employees. Stretch goals are the norm, and long hours are to be expected. If you do not live up to expectations, don't expect to stick around long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think Quirky has something special. More structure and process is a welcome thing in my world, but it's a delicate balance. I would hate to see excessive bureaucracy tie the hands of the amazing people that we have working at Quirky.

    Pros

    Quirky's HR team is dedicated and hard working when it comes to the interview/recruitment process. Questions get answered, laughs are had, and excitement is embedded in everything they do. The team is just as excited to have you as you are to join them.

    Cons

    The exact requirements/details of a position might be lacking at times. However, the team is always happy to go into more detail for you.

    Thanks for the feedback! It's so helpful to know that the requirements seem a little vague -- we'll be sure to tighten up those job descriptions.

    And yes, laughs abound at Quirky!
