    Pros

    -I learned a lot! -The people that work for Movoto are great--super smart and fun, which makes it enjoyable to go into work. -Great perks--weekly catered lunches stocked kitchen, flexible schedule, etc. etc. -Movoto is growing a lot--seems like there is always something new going on.

    Pros

    what can I say, MOVOTO is a fast growing company with endless opportunity for growth and advancement. It's a truly a fun place to work at with a culture that you could never find any where else. The people who work there are all hard workers but they all make time to keep it fun and casual.

    Cons

    Only bad thing I can really say is that the pay but the culture more than makes up for it

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and keep the culture going! I truly believe this no where else will you find a company like MOVOTO

    I have been working at Movoto full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company goals are transparent, fun company culture, free food/snacks, good opportunity for growth, and employees are recognized for their hard work and achievement.

    Cons

    A lot of tasks and not enough employees to get everything done. This is attributed to the rapid company growth, but is getting better with the hiring of new employees.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more competitive with compensation and benefits.

    Pros

    Endless Snacks/Drinks Open floor plan Informative Company meetings Growth opportunities Management provides additional sales tools, tips and feedback. 1:1 meetings weekly Beautiful office building Hard working teams

    Cons

    Repetitive workflow Extremely low active job, not much moving around. No vacation time High stress

    Advice to Management

    Provide your employees with paid time off, it would make people want to work because it would give them something to look forward to and it would show that the company cares about the happiness of its employees.

    I worked at Movoto (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun and welcoming working environment. Colleagues quickly become friends and everyone is very supportive of each other's goals. I left the company for a job more closely aligned with my studies and my manger, although sad to see me go, was very supportive and genuinely happy for me. Perks include a fully stocked fridge with snacks, weekly company lunches, and fun events outside of work such as the annual Tahoe retreat.

    Cons

    Technical difficulties often made it hard to get work done efficiently and effectively in my specific department.

    Pros

    Casual wear. Scrupulous spending for 'entertainment' if you're in sales. Annual retreats.

    Cons

    1. Corruption: HR is shady. - Unlimited Holidays: This is shady way of saying they won't pay out for holiday/sick days when you leave the company (and if you work in CRT, good luck getting any vacation). - No Equity: Because they claim to have sold it to the parent company, Recruit. This is a lie. They are in the hands of the investors, and their family members. 2. High Turn Over: They are constantly selling the company to new prospects. You can hear them recruiting nonstop. Most employees outside of the Marketing team are constantly being turned over or leaving on their own terms. They are leaving because of politics, disorganization, and poor wage. There is little to no growth opportunities. Sometimes a promotion means a higher ranking title but the same pay. 3. Salary: Every review will tell you how poor the pay is. As employees are let go, these positions aren't filled quickly enough. This causes work to be stacked on currently retaining employees with no pay increase. Perhaps it would be wise to spend less on parties and offset the cost to retain talent.

    Advice to Management

    There is a high degree of favoritism. Ideologies are created and forced down the throats of individuals. Many weeks later, these ideologies are never spoken of. Retain and learn how to grow your employees instead of letting them resign.

    Pros

    The company offers lots of growth opportunities which is very rewarding and exciting. Employees are encouraged to voice their opinions and be innovative. The work environment is fun and there are many team building events and activities. Interesting projects are often being initiated and implemented. The Management Team is strong, open-minded, experienced, and have a great vision for the company to succeed. Overall, Movoto has a great company culture with a strong vision, product, and team.

    Cons

    The current office space is a bit tight due to rapid growth and hiring. The company is in a competitive industry so changes are often being made.

    Advice to Management

    Continue hiring great people who are experienced and passionate for growth. Offer surveys to employees so HR/Management can gauge the current state of each employee.
