The people are great, the health care is insanely good. The gym and preschool on site is convenient to give you a good work/life balance. I enjoy my work and team, and get to go home to my family and not be stressed about work at 11 pm or the weekends.
I like being in the office but if you're looking for remote work, this isn't the place for you. Pay is average-fair, for the area, especially tech, and there's limited stock options.

Good benefits, but a lot are family oriented that I don't see as a recent grad
lower pay than competiors in the space

Bandwidth has a good culture and good benefits, and I really like the people I work with. In my experience, I've had supportive managers that promote growth opportunities from an experience, upper management exposure, and salary perspective. It's also on a new campus with a lot of great amenities.
Very technical market/products to understand. The organization is very hierarchical with some top-down decisions. There's also a lot of hypocrisy with workers required to be in-person, but many exec and upper management roles are remote.

Your success depends on what you put in. You get to work with exciting technology to build out robust products. Option to move between teams and projects if you are in good standing. The option for 90 minute workout lunches as long as you meet work commitments. Great benefits compared to industry. New HQ has great amenities with access to greenways and trails.
In office with no WFH (very very limited flexibility). It’s really hard work sometimes. Teams balance heavy workloads but relative to the industry it’s still within reason. Compensation could be higher. The Raleigh HQ Bandwidth experience differs from other locations.

Fully covered insurance- huge win at a corporate employer. The majority of my team was incredibly talented and supportive (though quite a few of those have since left the company). The "Bandwidth vibe". I love the colors, the creativity, the teleponies, overall the brand was something you don't find at other companies.
2 of my 3 leaders were inconsiderate, manipulative, micromanagers. Their teams are crumbling and leaving in droves and nobody above them seems to realize that THEY are the problem. Returning 9-5, M-F with almost no flexibility was a huge mistake for this company. I know not every person has this experience, which is another issue. It depends on the manager how you're treated. Type of managers that would question you if your Slack bubble went away. Also.. requiring such a strict RTO is absurd considering people are still currently being hired for remote roles. Complete lack of trust in their employees who are all some of the best I've had the pleasure to work with. Everyone *specifically in the marketing department* goes above and beyond whenever they can. I can't think of one person that would slack off or try to pass off work. Compensation relatively low even with the covered benefits. I left for a different company in a similar role and got nearly a $20k raise.8

1. They care about your overall health 2. Outside of being on call there is respect for your life outside work and encouragement for a healthy lifestyle 3. At least for a developer there are small teams which means you get to do interesting things 4. The free health insurance is super nice
1. Not always the most honest. They swore up and down no layoffs but a couple of teams were laid off without a company announcement. I was told I would be hybrid and they only gave me a couple days to sign the offer letter. Then they switched to it being fully in the office. 2. Huge emphasis on sales. This is actually good for the company I think, but it is a bummer when you aren't in sales and they tell you about all the trips and fun things the sales teams get to do. 3. Although generally very emphatic about moral business, they do send a large portion of the political text messages if you have a problem with that. 4. Very low merit increases.2

Benefits and commission incentives, work environment/colleagues, 90 minute workout lunches
How long it takes to move up in SDR program. Stuck in the same role because of "promotion freezes"

People are great, including managers who seem to care about peoples' mental health and job outlook.
Projects are started and then abruptly terminated just when gaining momentum, which comes across as a lack of planning or strategy. Was hired to lead a specific project but then it was summarily canceled. Also, share prices really tanked and I feel like we don't know the real reasons why - they sugar coat it somewhat. Should we be worried?2

New building is very nice
Depending on the department, there is confusion and swirl about goals and execution of work. There is not enough staff for the work needed.4
