    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!

    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

    Pros

    Company pays for the monthly medical + dental benefits for the employee (dependents are the responsibility of the employee).

    $500 annual allowance for health/fitness products/services.

    Casual office environment.

    Was an early player in the mobile fitness mapping field.

    Cons

    Like all start-ups, you roll the dice. However, the fitness app space is now very crowded and competitors (i.e. Nike+, Strava, Runkeeper, Endomondo, Garmin Connect, Daily Mile etc.) have built better mousetraps.

    Too little, too late on bug squashes and getting new features to work properly which IMO lead to bad user experiences and thus has greatly slowed down the growth of new or repeat users.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should have sold the company in 2012.

    Pros

    The office is downtown - close to lots of cool stuff! The staff is predominately young people, and they seem to love what they do. The company gives you a $500 credit for any health/fitness related purchases you make while employed. The CEO is a super chill guy.

    Cons

    The atmosphere in the office is strange. its SO QUIET 90% of the time. Everybody is plugged in to their music, which is fine, but nobody really talks unless their in a meeting. I guess if you want to work with a bunch of quiet coders and programmers then this is the place for you!

    Cool Product. But not the best company to work for. I've worked at better start ups.

    Pros

    Good Mobile and Web platform. Product is going in a good direction. Decent compensation.

    Cons

    Culture wasn't the greatest for a designer. Development driven company. Designers and UX Designers had a difficult time trying to communicate to the dev, product teams and stakeholders. So basically, no creative or collaboration with the designers.

    When I first started, the biggest turn over were the developers. Up until Mid 2012, the biggest turn over have been the designers.

    As a designer, there is no room for growth. I would suggest if you are a JR Designer, you have the opportunity to grow. Senior Level Designers, I would suggest looking elsewhere.

    The company did require 110% everyday (which is fine), but work/life balance was an issue at first when I started. That all changed when a new CEO was brought on board the summer of 2011. As of Sept 2012, that CEO has moved on.

    Overall, difficult place to work if you are a designer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Over all, there are some decent senior managers and VPs. I would recommend chilling on the egos, way to much of that. Overall a bunch of good people. The Board should look into the overall Senior Management team and VPs. Some members of that team were really disrespectful to other employees. Starting from the top.

    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.
