Featured Review

Current Employee - Technical Support Engineer

I have been working at VMware full-time

Pros

Management is great, coworkers are great, bonuses, work from home, health benefits...all great. As long as you show up, work hard, have the stats to prove you are doing well, internal moves are... within reach. No micromanagement, no nagging, just do your job, and sign off at the end of your shift. No after hours or weekends. Work life balance is A+

Cons

Stingy on Overtime; but they do it so people don't work to death

Current Employee - Senior Counsel

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

Pros

I had the privilege of working with a phenomenal recruiting team. Many companies tout strong culture, transparency, good communication but fall short. I knew right away that Thumbtack walks the talk.... From the start, my recruiting contacts exuded Thumbtack values. I felt like I knew where I stood at each stage of the process. My recruiting team communicated clearly and consistently, and I knew where I stood at each step of the process. My experience throughout the recruitment process made me excited to join Thumbtack!

Cons

I don't have any cons.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing.
