    Pros

    Lots of support from the company in terms of training and development. Most people are really good at their jobs. Feel valued, respected, and like you make a difference for clients and the company. Lots of interesting cultural practices. Solid research and recommendations. Very strategic and forward-focused. Really interesting value proposition and client solutions.

    Cons

    Career path can be unclear, but should work with your manager to develop a plan.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    I have been working at Root full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Root is made up of a group of very intelligent, very creative people. It challenges you to be your creative best. The company is very client centric and will find a way to say yes to most client requests. The HQ is a creative client destination that is very impressive.

    Cons

    Work/life balance at Root is non-existent for any role that is client facing. This is one area where the company does not practice what it preaches. Also, for many roles at Root, a career path is unclear or unavailable. Often times employees are looking for upward movement that is not available to them. Senior Leadership is not as experienced or skilled compared to other organizations in the industry.
