"Great Place"Nov 10, 2020

Current Employee - Technology Lead

I have been working at Yahoo full-time

Pros

Great place to work. Love the people, they are brilliant and smart and always helpful

Cons

No cons come to mind

Advice to Management

You have great employees who are willing to work hard. Thats nice

Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer

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

Pros

The company culture is really great. There's a culture around transparency and no BS. No wasting time sitting in pointless meetings. If you think something needs to change, you're encouraged to say... so. If you feel you need clarification on something (e.g. during a presentation), you're encouraged to ask. Decisions are data driven. Discussions are productive and focused on outcomes. The people I work will really are professionals and are fantastic to work with. There's nobody who could leave and I wouldn't care (and this definitely wasn't true in some previous places I've worked). I feel like I'm trusted and empowered to actually do the work that needs to be done. There's enough difficult problems that there's always something interesting to work on. I think I've literally used this phase when talking to some former colleagues: "Turns out sometimes the grass actually is greener."

Cons

None really to speak of. I feel comfortable having frank conversations about anything that comes up, and these usually turn into collaborative discussions about "how can we solve this problem?".

Advice to Management

Keep building a house we want to live in, and keep up the good work.
