Featured Review

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

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

Pros

• Lots of opportunity to learn if you come from a smaller company/start-up • Lots of opportunity for IC/leadership development • High ceiling for career development within 1-4 year time span given... the company's initiative to invest in its people • Global opportunity and at the right stage to impact your career growth • Growth mindset culture • Onboarding is strategic and ideal for crafting a high touch point employee experience • Average tenure here is lengthy and impressive compared to rest of bay area companies and start ups • Company has promising future in its ecosystem • In-house chef team is the cherry on top

Cons

• Legacy tech, systems, processes need updates/upgrading for future scale • Some operational systems and streamlining of some specific team analytics/data could be improved

Advice to Management

Keep investing and nurturing talent and development of employees.

Current Employee - Business Operations

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

Pros

Everyone is nice, professional development is a priority for managers, good work is rewarded more than hard work so success comes from finding ways to be valuable, work life balance is real

Cons

Although I think the world is better off with NerdWallet in it, I am not actually motivated day-to-day by the mission. This is not a problem with the company but something you should be aware of if... joining a mission driven company is really valuable to you.
