    I have been working at Sittercity full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The team at Sittercity is first-class. Everyone at the company has been incredibly supportive, and I feel that the management team has given me the leeway to be successful in my role.

    I'm tremendously excited about the mission of the company, and I feel that as we enter 2018 the team has a new momentum to achieve it.

    Cons

    We're trying to reinvent the category that we pioneered, and that's a huge challenge. If you are looking for a clearly defined operating role, it's going to be hard to find that today at Sittercity. However, if you can embrace all of the changes around you and adapt, you'll make a real impact on the company and, in turn, families across the country!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to move fast, embrace change, and build the product that "finally makes childcare work!"

    Just apply online and people come to find you. You have the option to have your credentials and background checked. Although it may seem scary the first time you interact with a potential employer, every single conversation and follow through I had was legitimate. Sittercity is very strict about scammers.
