    Pros

    I've been contracting with Motif since January. The environment is very open and friendly. The people here are awesome. Always ready to help and encourage me to learn all that I can. Problems are solved not complained about. I have had the pleasure of working on a wide variety of projects that are way outside my original purpose here. I love that. There's foosball, snacks and drinks. I often forget that I'm a contractor as I'm included in just about everything that happens here as though I were part of the family. I hope they ask me to marry them. The dating period has been great.

    Cons

    My desk gets really warm in the afternoons. So I get up and go to the couch area on the other side of the building where it's cooler and work.

    I worked at Motif Investing as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I did my internship here in the summer of 2014. Firstly and most importantly, the people here are very cool! They are always willing to offer advice and guidance. Outside of work, the group events were awesome. BBQ, hiking, frisbee, etc. I came to the office with good mood everyday! By the way, the office is in downtown San Mateo, so... walkable distance to almost any place you need. Good transparency! The path and strategy for the company can be followed well. People work very collaborative. Basically, a flat structure and no hierarchy in terms of doing things. On the other hand, people with good finance expertise are just a few steps away. They can be pretty useful if you are interested in finance stuffs!!!

    Cons

    - No major concern. But maybe there could have been free meals?
