Employees rate San Francisco 1.1% higher than the overall average
I have been working at Gusto full-time (More than a year)
+ Really smart people, some of the brightest people I've worked with in my career
+ Everyone is so nice, almost too nice.
+ Opportunity for career advancement given the growth of the business
+ A high percentage of roles are filled though internal transfers. The company believes in investing in the talent that is there today
+ A very thoughtful recruiting process - interview panels are prepped on target profile, interviewers have specific focus areas, and we make sure to reserve time for candidate questions
+ Transparency - biweekly all hands meeting, weekly team meetings, constant updates in Slack
-Some of the more senior leaders have scaled out of their roles. Excited to see a new wave of leadership
-Quirky: shoeless office, lots of Gusto jargon (PE = manager), kinda kumbaya-ish
-It's hard to get support from technical teams on key projects. There's a lack of cross functional alignment and partnership
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.
