Mission: At Pray.com our purpose is to create a world where everyone leaves a legacy of helping others.
I worked at Pray.com full-time (More than a year)
- Product has good intentions and can have a big impact on people. Woking on something that you feel has value and will help people emotionally and physically is really rewarding. Leads to a lot of introspection and self improvement as well.
- Great people. I feel like I learned from a lot of people at Pray.com. Truly missionaries rather than mercenaries.
- I learned a lot from my time here. There is plenty to do, which means there's plenty of opportunities to learn from.
- Healthy and fitness oriented employees. Because of the motivation of my friends at Pray.com I best shape of my life.
- Lots of work ends up not making it into the product or not making a measurable difference due to poor planning and moving fast. It's a startup, this happens, but finding better processes would help a lot.
- Can feel like theres a focus on amount of work put in rather than how much work is actually done. Pray.com is not easy. If you're looking for a normal 9-5 with flexible WFH, it's probably not a good fit.
Advice to Management
- Find new product processes. Doing so will help cut down wasted time.
- Focus more on efficient work rather than long work. Maybe recognize amount of work done rather than hours in the office?
In March, Volunteers from http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQwR0 flew to Rome to mentor students from Harvard, MIT and others at VHacks, the first Hackathon at the Vatican (http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQwRy). The Hackathon was 36 hours of ideation and innovation to address the problems of social inclusion, interfaith dialogue, and migrants & refugees.
