    I have been working at Lawline.com full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The thing I love most about Lawline is the opportunity for growth. I am constantly learning new technical and soft skills, and it’s a very supportive environment. Through weekly coaching sessions, I’m able to be vulnerable with my immediate supervisor and express areas where I’m not performing the way I’d like to be, and she works with me to find solutions on a regular basis. It involves a lot of introspection, an essential element in identifying blind spots and improving as a leader, which is something that the company, and especially the CEO, David Schnurman, encourages every employee to be. There’s always room to improve, but I’d say Lawline’s executive team is one of the more emotionally intelligent groups of leaders out there, and because of that, I’m not micromanaged as I’ve been in previous work experiences, and am instead given the freedom to make decisions, learn from my failures, and sharpen my instincts.

    Lawline also continues to offer better benefits every year, and in the time that I’ve been here, they’ve introduced a matching 401k program, higher medical benefit contributions, more sick days per year, a parental leave program, and a profit-share bonus program. They also organize culture events a few times a quarter which are incredibly fun and speak to our core value of PLAY. The events provide such a unique opportunity to get to know your coworkers even better (all of whom are amazing), and create moments together that strengthen your resolve to support them every day.

    It’s easy to say that you love your job because you're the driver of your own success, but it’s a lot harder to say that you love your company. I love Lawline, and I believe anyone who values a company with values would say the same.

    Cons

    Because of the small nature of the company (we currently have 20 employees), there aren’t many ‘levels’ to advance towards. if you’re someone who sees growth as a promotion to a higher position, you probably won’t be satisfied with the organization’s structure, but if you’re someone who sees growth as an expansion of accountability, skill sets, and the ability to think innovatively about what you can achieve in your environment, you’ll be very happy here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on each individual employee’s growth. If they grow, we’ll all grow.

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Lawline starts the process sending out a code challenge. The code challenge was an easy one and took about 3 or 4 hours. They expected the code challenge to be delivered in 24 hours before even considering to speak with me.
    For some weird reasons, I did go along with that abusive process and delivered before the 24 hours deadline. I never got an answer back from the HR person who sent me the initial email and also the code challenge was never even evaluated (The person I invited to the repo never accepted the invitation).
    In hindsight, never accept a process as the one proposed by lawline. Clearly, you don't want to work for a company that has this attitude towards possible employees.
