    Pros

    Cutting edge technology merging sport & fitness with passion for technology and the bleeding edge tech of technology.

    Project teams can be split across the main development centers in Austin, TX and Denver, CO however great culture of remote collaboration so this is minimized.

    I have been working at MapMyFitness as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The work environment is incredible. All of the people at the office are so friendly and welcoming. Such a productive and creative learning environment.

    Cons

    The ONLY con is that I am an intern and have to leave once school starts back up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you guys are doing, because it's working. I've worked for some other companies and the fact that y'all take the time to have an "All hands on deck" meeting and give everyone updates as to whats going on, where y'all want to take the company and what each role is, is exactly what a company like this needs to be as successful as it is and as successful as it will become.

    I have been working at MapMyFitness full-time

    Pros

    Best team of people I've ever worked with on the most amazing product I've ever built. The list of benefits are too long to list them all but there are some good ones including $500 fitness reimbursement for anything fitness related per year.

    Cons

    Sometimes things are moving so fast that some details get missed but that is the tricky part about working for startups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Over communicate the good stuff!

    I have been working at MapMyFitness full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    MapMyFitness is the best group of coworkers I've worked with in my career. We're building products for a market that's white hot. Real usage is growing, presenting interesting technical challenges, and growing revenue.

    Cons

    I really have nothing critical to say about the company. It's a fantastic place to work as a software developer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep crushing it.

  8. Fascinating Company

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX

    I have been working at MapMyFitness full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Top 10 Health Apps in iTunes & Android
    - Big Data (4 workouts / seconds and 15M Users)
    - Fun (Tues Team Rides, Wed Runs, Arrested Development Fridays, Open space / indoor basketball court, xbox connect competitions, ping pong tables)
    - Neat Perks ($$ for Fitness Gear, Great Health & Dental, Flex Time, etc.)
    - Great team of people that love what they do because of their passions

    Cons

    Some people have a hard time adjusting when their passions don't align with health & fitness (running, cycling, etc.), helping others become happy and active, or solving great engineering and technical challenges (You don't have to love fitness -- you just have to really love your job and want to thrive). We're a 'Can-Do' work place and the people who end up leaving generally are those that can't don't fall in love with our environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back Demo Fridays where the entire company kicked back and watched new product presentations over beer

    I have been working at MapMyFitness full-time

    Pros

    $500 for fitness apparel/gym membership/ski pass/you pick. CEO is a true visionary and an amazing person - he really cares about his employees and I consider myself lucky to work alongside him. MapMyFitness (as a brand) is something that I personally believe in, and I'm grateful that I'm to work for a company where I can seamlessly marry my skill set and my passion for being active.

    Cons

    Still in a bit of a startup mode, everyone tends to wear a lot of hats. If you're someone who likes to take the ball and run with it, you'll do really well here! If you simply want to punch the clock, it's might not be the best fit.

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

    Pros

    MapMyFitness has a great web and mobile platform. The company has a fun energetic vibe from the top management down. I loved the creativity and openness of management to new ideas. One of favorite jobs in my career so far!

    Cons

    You are expected to put 110% into every day on the job! Sometimes that can filter over into working late or working on projects over the weekend, but they really strive to respect your work life/balance.

    I worked at MapMyFitness

    Pros

    MMF was a great place to work. I was out of a different location so I didn't get to experience the office environment, but from what I experienced, the people were great-comprised mostly of young people that work hard/play hard.

    Cons

    Growing pains: Company went through a few restructurings while I was there...typical start-up environment-hire too fast, too many layers of management, etc. I'm sure it's evened out now.
