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

    Pros

    Great culture, ego free design team, you learn a lot while doing meaningful work. While the company is growing and maturing and this can be hard, I think the culture supports this kind of growth really well, in that it truly allows itself to make mistakes and learn.

    Cons

    Company is in a state of change
