great people, great leadership, - a great place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at RiseSmart

Prosstartup mentaility, team mentality- starts with the leadership team.

Consnot a lot of praise for a job well done- more of a "what have you done for me lately" mentality.

Advice to Senior Managementyou have blown through funding so fast and it has obviously affected the business (2 rounds of layoffs)..let's get backto basics of feeling and spending like a startup- that when we saw our explosive growth.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
