    I have been working at Blue Apron full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    One of the best places I've worked at. Nice size, smart and engaged employees. Management has done a good job at keeping morale decent during a transitional time period. Good work/life balance. Benefits are pretty good, especially if you would use the blue apron product. I think the glassdoor rating should be higher, but there has been a lot of transitions which makes some feel it wasn't what they wanted.

    Cons

    There's been a decent amount of turnover at times which can lower institutional knowledge and reduce morale.

    I worked at Blue Apron full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    My peers were great to work with. Unlimited PTO (how they can afford that, I have no idea), decent office location so the commute was easy.

    Cons

    The company as a whole was incredibly dishonest. They would say one thing and do another. Management has a nasty habit of taking absolutely no responsibility for their shortcomings and manages to throw their subordinates under the bus whenever a project would take longer to complete while soaking up all the praise when things were successful. The engineers who worked their behinds off to get projects finished managed themselves and yet, the managers who pretty much phone it in (all the while watching Overwatch tournaments on their iPads instead of doing real work) walked around with the audacity to speak with authority on the abilities of the engineers. People in positions of power have absolutely no right being there. HR is a joke. They are glorified middleman working in tandem with the status quo. They’re incredibly flippant whenever serious ethical problems (i.e.; racism, sexism, favoritism, misconduct, etc) were presented to them and will lie and stall until they came up with some sort of story that would work for them. Blue Apron is a sad startup that never got its footing and too stubborn to call it quits.

    Pros

    Good pay, beautiful building, from the interviews this role seemed like an awesome opportunity.

    Cons

    Long hours / no structure / department is run by leadership with no real HR experience and the ones who are onsite do no provide Adequate or any training any type. It’s a sink or swim set-up.
