    Pros

    The people and the leadership is in my opinion really want makes the Resumator a great place. Everyone is passionate about what they do, and gets along very well. The CEO has managed to build a great culture in the Pittsburgh office, even after all the changes. The perk the company offers are great, as is the office space in the strip.

    Cons

    The hours are long, but honestly you get used to it. The snacks are far away, but thats about it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on this path and the company will continue to do well.

    Pros

    I love coming into work every morning because I work with smart, talented people who I admire. I work hard not just because I want to succeed here, but because I want to see us all succeed, and I believe we all work well together as a team. The company is going through a lot of changes, but I see the vision and am excited by it. I'm excited to contribute to the next big thing in recruiting.

    Cons

    The company recently relocated most of the teams in SF back to Pittsburgh, and that resulted in nearly an entire office getting laid off. I'm not going to lie, that's a pretty unsettling experience to go through, especially for companywide morale. But I believe in the vision and understand that sometimes businesses have to make tough decisions that result in non-ideal outcomes.

    Advice to Management

    Be open. Communicate honestly with current and future employees to assure them that they're both valued and integral to the company and its mission.

    Pros

    Extremely proud to call The Resumator my home. The company has a legacy of being clever, aggressive, and innovative as evidenced by its meteoric growth to its current position as the commercial leader in the space. As of the time I write this, I've never felt more positive about the momentum behind The Resumator. Huge things are in store that will dramatically alter the landscape and it's thrilling to be a part of it.

    Cons

    The Resumator has a mantra of "Performers Only." That means that only employees who are willing to actively collaborate, work harder than the average person, and commit to aggressive - even unfair- goals thrive here. This is definitely not an environment in which you can slack off and it's one where not everyone survives.

    Advice to Management

    As the company grows, keep the scrappy startup attitude. Stay bold, aggressive, and keep building teams that share the vision for our future in the HR space.

    Pros

    The current team is committed to the mission of the company and to doing a great job. The product is being continually developed and improved. The marketing team in the San Francisco office has been producing great work in recent months. Directors and Vice Presidents are committed to the success of the company and pushing for positive change.

    Cons

    There have been a lot of recent changes, but this is pretty normal for a startup at this stage. Because of the frequent changes, however, communication sometimes fails. The leadership team has been making an effort to improve communication, but it could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Work on communication at every level in the organization. Continue to push for positive change in how the company operates and grows.

    Pros

    I've been working with the Resumator since 2009. For the first 5 years as a contractor and I loved it so much that I started full-time in 2014. What a great environment and great place to work. The stability of the company and the flexibility of the leadership has made working these past 61/2 years worth it.

    Cons

    Can't think of any at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Great job!!!! Keep up the good work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep building the company responsibly, as you have been doing. Give true ownership to people to give them greater opportunities to grow.

    Pros

    Great CEO, great team - some management issues that were fixed. Everyone is committed to the company and wants to see it succeed.

    Cons

    Cons were fixed and things improved. Going through some reorg now so will be interesting to see where things land.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to give to management, again, going through reorg so curious to see how things pan out.

    Pros

    I have always felt welcome working at The Resumator. All of the employees are a joy to work with and are a blast outside of work. The Resumator has not only provided me with stability but also has given me the most satisfaction in my career.

    Cons

    Cannot say that I have experienced any negative activity while working at The Resumator. Business decisions must occur for a company to grow and become successful.

    Advice to Management

    I respect the transparency management provides. Keep doing what you have been doing.
