Pros

Growth opportunities, some benefits, mission-driven leaders, younger culture that focuses on teamwork over ego, WFH stipend, decent focus on diversity and inclusion, incredibly stable outlook.

Cons

Compensation, compensation, compensation. I've seen swaths of people leave my department because other Utah tech companies have offered up to 40% more in compensation for the same role. Lucid leadership refuses to acknowledge that they pay below market and instead say that they continue to use a compensation research company to help determine salaries. Not convinced that it's working if area tech companies continue to poach Lucidites. Great if you're just starting a career but once your 4-5 years in, it doesn't become worth it anymore. Lucid is starting to appear in the same arena as places like Pluralsight, Qualtrics but the compensation means they aren't recruiting the talent needed to get to that level. Unfortunately, PTO is quite restrictive for the tech industry. 15 days PTO as a SaaS company with ten years under its belt? Unlimited PTO is standard in many competing tech markets (and in many Utah tech companies). Most benefits that are touted in response to concerns are focused specifically on parents (which are incredibly important) but considering the young crowd Lucid attracts, it just doesn't cut it. Grateful the CEO is progressive enough to celebrate Juneteenth and MLK Day but they took away our floating holiday to do so. Essentially, management is getting credit for being progressive while forcing employees to pay for it with a rare day off. A true statement would have been to allow employees to keep their floating holiday and close the company down on holidays celebrating racial justice.

Pros

* Great core values, most of which are lived. * Great co-workers who care about your success. * Interesting product space. * Great growth opportunities if you are willing to work overtime and make Lucid your life.

Cons

* Compensation is low, and overwork is high. Lucid is starting to lose talent with 3+ years experience. But this is the tip of the iceberg, there is discontent among mid to early senior engineers and product managers. Especially those with additional responsibilities but no additional compensation. * The company is too afraid to take risks. Real risks. This is why they have always been second in a space and lost out to more aggressive competitors. * There is no diversity in engineering leadership, and it shows in actions. Women are passed over for responsibilities in favor of their male colleagues, even when they are more qualified. I’ve observed all of the classic examples of the boys club at Lucid. Luckily, it isn’t considered acceptable to do these things overtly. Leadership needs to tune in and be more active about addressing this issue. * The new CEO doesn't inspire confidence that any of the issues will change.

Advice to Management

Pay your experienced employees more. And work them less. Of course every employee will always want this, but Lucid compared to other opportunities is just not a good value proposition for employment. People will burnout then go somewhere else to work less and make more. Although there is an economic recession, your top talent is still incredibly employable. As bills go up, and compensation continues to lag at Lucid, it will be hard to justify staying. Additionally, trust in Lucid’s equity is lower than ever internally. Focus on diversity within engineering, especially at the director level and above.

Pros

One of Lucid's main strengths is its culture and values. They not only care about your well-being and work-life balance at Lucid, but everyone also embraces diversity and inclusion, making sure no one feels left out. Another big plus for me - no matter what department you join, you are always surrounded by such a talented and bright group of individuals who will push you to be better always. Lucid is a great company to tackle new challenges and learn something new everyday. You will typically get all the support you need from senior leadership and you manager - and the team is always open to new ideas. The marketing team, in particular, is filled with creative geniuses who set their egos aside and strive to continuously collaborate together (#teamworkoverego) to develop innovative and clever marketing campaigns to unleash to the public. It's just such a fun place to work at.

Cons

- Compensation falls behind what other software companies may hire for similar roles (especially marketing). - Fully remote should be an option for employees - Proposing new changes can sometimes take a loooong time and very lengthy discussions: if we want to set ourselves up for success in the future and beat our competitors to gain market share, we just need to act faster.

Advice to Management

Senior leadership (some, not all) needs to sometimes let go of how things were done in the past, and think about what needs to be done now to ensure we are successful and enabled to achieve our goals. We live in a constantly evolving industry and environment, and that calls for us to be adaptable to change and think outside the box at times.

Pros

-Most people are here because they actually want to be here. -Lucid has the energy of a start-up but the discipline of a mature company. -The company is in a high-growth market (for obvious reasons, virtual collaboration tools have taken off over the past couple years) -Teams work on truly thought-provoking problems (e.g. what is the best way to help a team accomplish a project in a visual way?) -Lucid cares about its people. People encourage you to have a life outside work. -People don't take themselves too seriously here. Our CPO wore a bowser costume for Halloween last year. -Collaboration is a lived value. You won't get far if you try to lone wolf everything. -Leadership is invested in your growth. They are constantly asking about career goals, motivations and keeping an eye out for opportunities.

Cons

-As with any company, politics does rear its ugly head every now and then. Although, having previously worked at a Fortune 50 corporation, it's child's play here. -Depending on the job, compensation can be at or slightly below industry average. Not too big of a gripe though since cost of living in SLC is fair and definitely below that of the Valley. -Company plans on requiring all employees (except Sales) to be in-office which, while not a problem for me, has been a source of friction for others, especially new hires -Lucid has a habit of hiring most people locally instead of outside UT so diversity is an area of growth. Although, this is changing.
