    Pros

    For a software engineer HomeFinder has a lot to offer. Handling millions of impressions a month gives you plenty of data to analyze, a large audience to A/B test, demand for services that need to scale, and many other challenges that require researching new technology. It's challenging, but the team is always supportive so stress is still generally pretty low.

    Cons

    It's a smaller company so if you want to make dramatic role shifts there aren't a lot of options.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work

    Pros

    Great work hard, play hard attitude.
    People came up to me and introduced themselves for weeks after I'd been hired.
    Everyone is very nice, welcoming, and open to questions

    Cons

    No training program.
    There's nothing to complain about, and I love complaining.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get some kind of training program in place, other than that, doing great!

    Pros

    Cons

    With any young company, there is a lot of change, can be frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing, but I would ask you to find ways to max talent's of every employee to push the company forward. Company is small now, but has pretty good talent. Try to help them reach their full potential.

    Change can certainly be frustrating, hopefully we do a decent job of communicating when it does hit us. Thanks for the review, we really value the feedback.

    Pros

    There are always growth opportunities- even into other departments. HomeFinder recognizes talent when they see it. Culture is one of a kind. HomeFinder is what you make of it- if you want a company where you can go above and beyond and make proposals to the CEO and senior directors, then this is the place you want to be. It is one in a million where you can say on your resume "I proposed this to the senior director...." and made it happen.

    Cons

    We're still growing- but can be a positive because there are more great things to come.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always try to reward those who show their commitment and loyalty to our brand.

    Pros

    It's a great group of people that are all focused on making our product and the company better. I really like the flexible environment and culture.

    Cons

    Fixing past mistakes takes some focus away from growth. Seems like the company is making the right commitments to fix those. I'm optimistic about the future.

    Keep pushing in the direction you are going.

    Pros

    The culture here is relaxed and laid back but the employees are passionate and have a drive to produce a great product which makes for a truly amazing experience! How could you not enjoy working at a place that has a motorized cooler you can ride around the office on!

    Cons

    I can't think of anything that could be considered a company con at the moment. Maybe we communicate through email too much but I think that is more of a personal preference?

    Pros

    There is a lot of potential here. The company is making strides and positioning itself to be a major player in the game.

    Cons

    Management leaves a lot to be desired. Upper management is great but below them you have...well I don't know what you have.

    Showing up would be a great start.
