    Pros

    I work at the Phoenix office, and coming from the retail baking industry, Prosper is an amazing company to transition into. They have such a great company culture and work environment. My co-workers and managers are the best!! I honestly look forward to going to work every day, and I am constantly learning and growing in my position. Every day is a new opportunity to grow and meet your goals. The company does a good job with giving you so many opportunities to succeed and be productive. This is the best company I've ever worked for.

    Cons

    Not enough junk food in the FULLY STOCKED break room ;)

    Pros

    I have been working full time at Prosper for 7 months and really enjoy my job and this company.

    We're in a very exciting industry and this is a fast-paced, fast-growing company, so everyday there is a new challenge. Because we are still a small company but growing quickly, there is a great opportunity to be part of building the culture and part of influencing decisions that will shape the future of the company.

    I didn't come from a financial background, but have been able to get up to speed quickly on our industry. It's a great group of smart, motivated individuals that are working together to build a great company.

    Cons

    You have to love a fast-paced, results-oriented environment to enjoy working here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep soliciting feedback from employees and use it to shape the future of the company. Great job so far.

    Pros

    Fast pace, more opportunity to get exposure to business side compared to big corporate, people can see personal impact on the business

    Cons

    Very bad work life balance, bad management, stressful atmosphere. Compensation is low given the work load. Surprisingly, lots of people are not so friendly. They give an impression that they only care about their own stuff and not willing to help answer questions.

    Cons

    The engeneering department is a mess. Upper management has no idea what they are doing. Engineers are basically making decisions on how the product should work because the product team doesnt do their job. It is encouraged for engineers not to write tests which creates a very fragile code base. Upper management imposes impossible deadlines.

    Cons

    Because things are ever revolving, the company is growing faster than they have resources available. Several individuals are not doing the job that they were hired for and are getting burnt out trying to figure out what their new role is. Management does not always listen to your concerns and you risk the feeling of being "run over".

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees when they express needs and concerns. Take notice when your team is working past reasonable hours, almost every night.

    Pros

    -Company has got a ton of funding & is growing very quickly
    -Hot space with a lot of interest
    -New offices are beautiful

    Cons

    -Board & execs are almost all bankers, so the culture thinks of the tech & product folks as IT
    -Top-driven roadmap and deadlines
    -Company is struggling with an enormous amount of tech debt & unstable infrastructure
    -Talk of agile but really a waterfall process
    -Disagreement can be seen as disloyalty
    -Culture used to be more open to conversation and openness, now it's all about showing which team/dept can beat the others
    -Some possibly shady things being done, including some practices that are no longer standard (lack of email unsubscribe options, how long user data is stored & who has access to it, which third parties can access user data)
    -Blistering pace of hiring means unclear ownership, increasing bureaucracy, turf wars
    -Ineffectual HR department that's not equipped to handle the volume of new hires and personnel problems that can come up

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to new hire quality
    Develop organization processes that maybe weren't as relevant when the company was smaller
