    I worked at Cappex full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Cappex is a company filled with great people who are all working together to achieve a worthy mission of helping students connect with colleges.

    There is a ton of opportunity for growth, whether it's moving into a more senior role within the same department, or even between departments. If you put in the appropriate amount of work and effort, you will see it pay off in the long run.

    Management is aligned with a common goal and the product has continued to improve to provide significant increases in value YoY to customers.

    HR never fails to come up with new and fun activities for the team, and constantly turns feedback into positive improvements to company culture.

    Cappex is in an excellent position and will certainly continue to grow at a significant rate.

    Cons

    It's a small company, so you can't get by doing the bare minimum.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the employees and making the environment a place people want to come to work every day.
