I have been working at Gusto full-time (More than 3 years)
I've been a full time employee at Gusto for over 3 years. I love that I work at a company that is actually solving a meaningful problem for an underserved market. Gusto is a mission driven company and genuinely focuses on doing the right thing for our internal employees and our customers.
What has kept me at Gusto? I get to work with talented people, working on a challenging problems, and have had incredible career growth along the way. I love that my day to day work has a high level of ambiguity, ownership, visibility, and impact .
Even though we have grown quickly I feel like Gusto has stayed authentic to our values and maintained a consistent culture. For example, we are still a shoe-less office which might seem crazy given that we are over 850 employees. At the same time, I appreciate that we have kept the tradition alive because it aligns to our collaborative approach to work and "no egos" mentality.
On a personal note, Gusto has been a sustainable long-term career fit for me because I have flexibility when it comes to taking time off and working from home when needed. We have "flexible PTO" and I typically take off, ~4 weeks/ year. When life happens and I can't make it into the office, my manager has always been understanding and supportive.
We've grown from 150 employees to over 850 employees in 3 years across two headquarter locations. Gusto is scaling quickly and with any scaling company there are growing pains. The specific growing pains that I have experienced is that our internal processes and tools are always catching up to match the size and stage of the business.
Advice to Management
Continue to focus on our internal teams- I'd love to see Gusto roll out a 401K matching program for employees!
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Gusto (San Francisco, CA) in June 2016.
The interview process was a very positive experience. Each interviewer had a different style of conducting interviews, which made the process more intriguing and less repetitive. All interviewers were very knowledgable about the company's mission, vision, and goals. As a result, they were able to answer all questions to the fullest extent. Going through the interview process and walking around the office made it beyond evident that everyone was excited to be working at the company and truly believed in the company.
