    Directionless

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWork at home fridays, nice people. If you don't like to work too hard or be accountable, this is for you.

    ConsNo direction or growth potential for the company. It is not profitable and there is no plan in place to get there. CEO is more of a snake oil salesman rather than a leader or visionary.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the CEO and his family and friends he's filled the company with, and run a lean but profitable company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Sittercity has poor senior management and is inefficient at bringing new products to market.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThey attempt to have a fun culture.

    ConsVery unorganized company; no formal performance review process, too many office politics, terrible/unqualified upper management, and lack of innovation and resources to bring new products and ideas to the market.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Established firm with startup feel

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros- Technology team are built around proven skills and experience
    - Strong product team who know what they want
    - A strong knowledge of how to use search engines and online marketing to boost sales
    - Innovative
    - Great work life balance
    - IT'S FUN WORKING HERE

    Cons- I apparently have to write a con, so here it is: because Sittercity shares the building with Google, the elevators some time take a long time while Google staff move between floors.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
