What Employees Say
I have been working at Lever full-time for more than 3 years
I joined Lever when we were still a Series A company and the entire company could fit around a few lunch tables. I'm grateful for the way Lever has grown and changed, but stuck to its values. Now... that we're north of 200 employees, I appreciate the way leadership continues to be transparent, places a lot of trust in employees, and encourages us to act like owners. That, and I really like my coworkers. People here work hard, believe in our mission, and are here to get things done. Additionally: - Great office space - Free, good food - We celebrate in a variety of ways (introverts and extroverts alike can take part) - Town hall with leadership in all-hands meetings often - An actual compensation philosophy + performance / compensation reviews - Commuter perks - Leadership invests in management and provides resources to managers
Lever is not for everybody. People who don't do well with ambiguity, hard work, and being proactive with their work will generally struggle here. We do have turnover like any company, which can... be frustrating, but it comes with the territory of being a growing startup. We do have some team members that get lost in the minutia and don't focus on serving the business. I've seen this at every company, so I don't think Lever is doing anything wrong, but more acknowledging there's a pocket of that mindset here.
Advice to Management
Continue to align with one another and communicate across your team. I've noticed sometimes the left hand isn't aware of what the right hand is doing. Neither hand is wrong, per se, but keeping each... other informed helps ICs understand the impact of their work. Your jobs are hard; thanks for all you do. :)
