Some things can be slow

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Thumbtack full-time for less than a year

Pros

- Lots of cross-functional collaboration - Innovation is encouraged - Continual opportunities to provide leadership with feedback - Newly refreshed perks to balance Remote work life. Also, we’re... able to stay remote after pandemic subsides.

Cons

- can be meeting heavy, have to carve time in calendar to get actual work done - growing pains, so 1:1 time with manager isn’t as frequent as it used to be

Advice to Management

The decision to allow folks to continue working remotely is a huge win for everyone. Thanks! Continue making competitive decisions like this that will uplevel our value in the recruiting market.
