    I have been working at GutCheck full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    *Great coworkers - people care about giving it their all, they're kind, and have a sense of humor
    *Room to grow in all directions - being a fairly small company means that if you're interested, it's easy to get exposure to other parts of the organization and build an understanding of what other teams do. Cross-functional promotions are not uncommon.
    *Ongoing attention to keep benefits competitive (especially with major ones - medical, PTO, parental leave)
    *Overall, GutCheck is headed in a good direction - there is a lot that's been coming together in a really positive way over 2019

    Cons

    *Not really a con, but... like all companies, your manager has a huge impact on your experience, for better or worse.
    *Sometimes things feel like they're moving really fast, and sometimes things feel like they're moving really slowly. It helps to have a high tolerance for that variability.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at GutCheck (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    Interview process was gut wrenching as you could tell that the people conducting it really didn't enjoy their jobs. The discovery call they make you do is totally unrealistic as they give you nothing to prepare with and minimal context. I got a terrible vibe from the office itself and would never want to work here.
