Great teams and culture. Perfect work/life balance with remote work. Bamboo does remote so well. The company seems to focus on what really matters. Lots of smart engineers to learn from. Competitive compensation. Results focused. Everyone I've worked with at Bamboo has been friendly and accepting. I feel like I can be my real self here and I'm valued for my contributions. Great place to work!

Extremely smart and passionate coworkers. Bamboo pays less than market rate but the mission and amazing coworkers made up for it. Things were rosy in Boston prior to the acquisition, following which a gradual deviation in culture for the worse began. WLB is good, very flexible remote options.
The acquisition happened in 2021, during the pandemic. Short sighted vision by the C-suite resulted in needless hiring which ended up in needless and totally preventable layoffs. Someone from HR has been replying to reviews blaming "Global uncertainty" for the layoffs, but the company has no excuse for the way the layoffs were handled. Employees who had been with the company for years were let go with minimal severance. The HR rep replying to the reviews wrote that the company "strove to provide career and financial support " - which is essentially minimal severance and zero career support. It's sad because a lot of smart and dedicated people joined Bamboo (which pays less than market rate) because of the mission to revolutionize a broken healthcare system and watched as the company crashed and burned due to lame brained decisions by the ELT.15

Working in the tech space comes with money.
Everything else. Crappy branding. Poor leadership that doesn't support you. Pointing and blaming for everything.

Good pay, good benefits, excellent work/life balance (ROWE and remote work), team leaders that listen, and the feeling that you're making a difference in the world
Constantly shifting priorities, and lots of leadership changes in the last couple of years

Pay and benefits are the only upside. The advertised culture is only available to those who fit into one of the existing cliques.
There is an overwhelming lack of communication from top down. Changes occur without notification. This is particularly astounding given people rely on this business to be able to receive medication. I have never felt as unappreciated as I have working for this company. Since I accepted the role, supporting documentation has been incorrect and outdated and I have been left to my own devices to learn the job. I am actively pursuing alternate employment opportunities as a direct result of my current "leadership."6Bamboo Health Response11mo

The people are fantastic and the primary reason I remained at Bamboo Health after the first set of layoffs. My co-workers were respectful and collaborative. Bamboo Health employees tolerate below-market compensation and suffer a leadership team struggling to find the company's identity because they are passionate about revolutionizing healthcare. They offer unlimited PTO (up to 2 weeks in a row), allowing the flexibility to enjoy life outside work.
Don't come to work here. This company is not going to last. They perform seemingly arbitrary annual layoffs and promise it will not happen again each time. If you choose to work at Bamboo Health: You will be gaslit, Have few opportunities for upward mobility, Earn a salary 15-20% below market, Have enough projects for 2 FTEs with little strategic guidance, Pay high premiums for basic healthcare, Receive worthless stock options, If I'm being fair, you will lose your job during the next round of layoffs. So, don't bother.14Bamboo Health Response9mo
