I worked at Sittercity

Pros

Team lunches, free healthy snacks, exercise classes, company outings, and random work happy hours.

Cons

Upper management is horrible. They never meet deadlines. Took forever to launch the product. Wasted so much money on outside developers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fun environment, but there is no incentive to do hard work. Light a fire under employees, and have some rules. You need to hire people that know what they are doing.

    I worked at Sittercity full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work at home fridays, nice people. If you don't like to work too hard or be accountable, this is for you.

    Cons

    No direction or growth potential for the company. It is not profitable and there is no plan in place to get there. CEO is more of a snake oil salesman rather than a leader or visionary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the CEO and his family and friends he's filled the company with, and run a lean but profitable company.

    Sittercity has poor senior management and is inefficient at bringing new products to market.

    Very unorganized company; no formal performance review process, too many office politics, terrible/unqualified upper management, and lack of innovation and resources to bring new products and ideas to the market.
