    I have been working at Work Market full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    What's great about Work Market is the dedication and focus that your coworkers display every day. They're casual and funny, but very serious about disrupting freelance enterprise business. I came in as a junior position and have felt like the team always valued my opinions. I'm always welcome to approach either of the Jeffs and ask for business advice or opinions on any subject. Definitely would recommend.

    Cons

    Your fellow coworkers are passionate, smart, and opinionated. They won't be afraid to say exactly what's on their mind. But to be honest, it's refreshing and cuts to the chase. The culture here is very blunt.

    You might also spend some weekends and late nights working to get things done, but to be fair the leadership is very frank about needing to take vacations and no one will ever ask you to work weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    On boarding new hires should be better. While I think there's something to be said for jumping into work, we could use a little more care with newbies.

    Pros

    The company has a great vibe. It’s both smart and open minded and there are no barriers between functions or between senior and junior members. Everybody talks to everybody else and everybody seems to enjoy working together. Interns are full-fledged members of the team and even the executives show a genuine interest in them.

    Cons

    Although the engineering team is split between 2 sites, communication is still very good because of investments in the right tools and a continuous search for better ways of communicating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They're already doing a great job.

    Pros

    We're in the business of connecting people looking for high quality work with available work. That is a noble calling. Really great people throughout the organization, including a stellar, smart management team. Our CEO and COO have tons of experience in the startup world. They really know how to grow a company from the ground up. The platform runs on the latest enterprise software stack and we are prepared to scale massively. We've attracted some of the best designers, developers, sales and support people.

    Cons

    The only cons are some of the challenges of having two offices and a distributed team. It's something that's being actively improved upon, including an investment in technology infrastructure to better connect our two offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing and we will keep growing like mad!

    Pros

    Great team, fun people to work with. Very smart and experienced executive team. Lots of autonomy. Good blend of start up and enterprise culture. Standard weekly meetings and reviews mixed with a ping pong table and Friday team lunches.

    Cons

    Work hard play hard mentality, we have a good time but we work a lot. If you expect people to tell you what to do, you will fail here - no one will hold your hand. Sometimes our strategy changes quickly and you have to be able to go with the punches. It's an early stage tech company so there are lots of bugs to work through as we get it right.
