    Pros

    Twice a week we meet in "all-hands" meetings. And it doesn't matter who is talking or who contributes, it is clear we are a team of people who care and are committed and authentically want to change the world for the better. and that gives me all the conviction that we actually can and will

    Cons

    to succeed here while we're still small, you really need to give your 150%. the right kind of people love it. i do!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I love the free food! Let's get a gym at the office too.

    I worked at HealthTap full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - Great mission, passionate management
    - Execution focused.
    - Scale and agility. As an engineer, there are very few companies that offer a chance to work on a product thats big, yet evolving at the speed of light.
    - Awesome team.

    Cons

    - Sometimes things move too fast. If you are not someone who can give your best day in and day out, look elsewhere
    - Be very good at time management. Finish your shopping in the morning to be able to attend the 11:00 PM meeting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Stay true to the mission
    - Take it easy once in a while

    Pros

    The Android app is amazing. Great features, easy to use and truly useful. The environment is conducive to fast growth and learning.

    Cons

    Everyone is forced to metricize everything they do. Sometimes, great ideas are rejected because they do not directly move the metrics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not take the 'data driven' culture too far. Leave some room for new ideas that do not have data to support them.
