Does BlueCart offer tuition reimbursement?

Pros

Working at BlueCart has been a pleasure! My involvement here has not only helped me gain practical knowledge of what I’ve studied in grad school but also see how these real-time projects fit into the entire organization. Working for a great organization brings out the best in you! Past 3 months here have been an upward journey of learning and fun, being with a great team and collaborative culture, can’t wait to see what the future holds. The entire internship program has provided me a direction or a sense of clarity about my future and the path I would like to pave/take and what kind of organization I would prefer to work at. The bar is set too high after working at BlueCart. It provides a flexible work culture for its employees with an incredible amount of learning. It nurtures new talent and encourages new ideas. There is no rigid hierarchy or bureaucracy which provides the right kind of setting for a flourishing career. For someone like me who has a different background and different culture, it’s inclusiveness and diversity made me feel at home. It is a perfect match for an early career professional like me who is eager to learn and absorb new information that is thrown my way. A mentorship program in addition to the internship program is just a cherry on top!

Does BlueCart offer unlimited time off?

Pros

- Flexible hours, unlimited PTO and vacation - Experienced product team

Cons

- Very low pay - Zero to $5 gift card holiday bonus - High turnover and laid-off. - You'll be doing 5 man work - The company has no clear direction of what they're doing and where they're going. Lack of clear vision and good leaders. - The management is mostly the problem. They pride themselves in the culture of transparency, however that is nonexistent. You are not allowed to question what you've been told to do, or their decisions, or how they mistreat other employees, EVER. The moment you speak up, be prepare to see their HR person. - They would go out of their way to INSULT you - Lots of report. They extremely micromanage. They require at least 4 well prepared documents about what tasks you do, why you do it, and how many hours you spending doing them, in DETAILS and in FORMAT. Fail to meet their expectation on the "details and format" can cause you to be called out in front of HR. Then you still have to report to your supervisor the same thing via chat or email during the day. - Favoritism is also a problem. They would do whatever it takes and cover all mistakes to help their family climb up to the management (which already out numbered their employees).

Advice to Management

The management is blinded by flatterers. Remove some of the bad links. Hire people who are actually experienced and expertise for their manager positions. The management needs to learn how to listen. DECENT holiday bonus.

Advice to Management

Why is this company not going anywhere? There many reasons that answer the question, but the main one lays with the management team. If you are applying to work in the Marketing and Sales team of this company, you will have to work with very toxic management that constantly talks about their long experience, but in reality, they don't have the slightest idea about websites, graphic design, or SEO. They spend the majority of their time micromanaging their employees 24/7, coming up with unrealistic ideas and figuring out unethical ways to help their family move up in the company. When conflicts happen, they would rather lie to cover up their mistakes and force people to back down. In other companies, you can bring this issue up with the HR department, but in this start-up, they are actually a one-man team that is already manipulated and blinded. Within less than a year, they lost half of the marketing team, twice, over their terrible management, but the upper management doesn't seem to see an issue in that. Not only do the marketing managers constantly bad-mouth the people that left the company, but they also remove the authorship of former employees from the blog posts that the employees wrote on the company's blog as a way of revenge, which is extremely unusual and unethical (although it's legal). Despite the founder proposes to be the work reference for former employees, some marketing managers still use unethical ways to crush people that left. On top of that, they pay very little compared to the average range for the position, and their holiday bonus is a $5 gift card. It is unfortunate to see that it's not the product that's killing the company, it's the management here.

Free water.

How are career development opportunities at BlueCart?

Pros

My experience at BlueCart can be described as inspiring, equipping, and formative. The culture at BlueCart places a significant value on the expression of diverse experiences and opinions, encouraging me to confidently offer new ideas and suggestions that actually made an impact on company decisions. This internship provided the skills and opportunities to spur not only my career growth, but also shape and form my intellectual and personal development. I was encouraged to take an online course and expand my knowledge within the field of marketing, learn a new programming language and perform customer analytics, and create and pursue projects that taught me how to apply my skills in a business environment. Additionally, the employees at BlueCart are one of a kind, exemplifying humility and grit. They take time to get to know you on a personal level and are devoted to your professional and personal growth.

Cons

Not too many cons if you know what you are getting yourself into. It's a small start-up, not a large corporation. It's fast paced and always improving, flat structure. Offices are in different cities throughout the US so there's a lot of virtual meetings which provides freedom but comes with the challenges of remote communication.
