    I have been working at Boostability full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The managers care and support your life outside of work. I have always felt comfortable knowing that my leaders know family comes first. I have also always had to opportunity to shadow other teams to know their tasks. Lastly, the benefits packages are amazing. They cover a large portion of health insurance and have a great HSA contribution program.

    Cons

    If you're at Boost for a life-long career, it's not the best fit. It's a great 2-5 year gig.

    Advice to Management

    Keep getting to know and supporting your employees.

      I worked at Boostability full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      I was at Boostability for years and I absolutely adored my coworkers. Quitting Boost was so hard because of the strong relationships I had there. I also really appreciated the flexibility of their part-time positions. Boostability was the perfect place to work throughout school. They did a great job of trying to keep things fun with dashes, competitions, and gift cards. Despite some of the negative things that happened...

      Cons

      When I first started at Boost, it was AMAZING. As time went on, things progressively got worse and worse. They were constantly dissolving teams and didn't do a very good job of making people feel secure. Upper management has gotten so bad over the years. There were times when it was apparent that people were being promoted because they were the cheaper option, not the better option. When I started looking for other...

      Advice to Management

      -Don't make someone a senior manager if you KNOW for a fact that they don't get along very well with most people. It's not worth combining departments and saving a bit of money. -Stop giving out 6 cent raises. People with degrees want salaries, not $14.36 an hour. -Don't micromanage. If people are doing their jobs well, why breathe down their necks? -Upper management shouldn't hide back in their offices--even if...

      Pros

      I like the culture, the executive team takes time to get to know everyone. They listen if an employee is having a hard time and they try to help.

      Cons

      I wish they would have a remote work option.

      I have been working at Boostability full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Boostability offers a stable and laid-back work environment ideal for college students. Many of their jobs are entry-level. Most managers and fellow employees are nice and understanding. If the job you are applying for doesn't require a bachelor's degree or higher, you'll most likely be happy.

      Cons

      Boostability doesn't understand or chooses to ignore industry standard pay for educated professionals. If you have a college degree, you won't find a decent salary here, even for jobs that specifically require a bachelors or higher.

      Indecisive Management, blame high turnover on employee's, not willing to address toxic work culture, worst 401k

      Advice to Management

      Address the issue of management flip-flopping on decisions on a daily basis, stop blaming high turnover on college students (saw many college graduates quit after only a month or 2), and lack of collaboration between departments.

      Pros

      Regular incentives for meeting and exceeding your goals. Free soda and subsidized food as well as team breaks that involve playing board games. The company wants you to succeed which leads you to want them to succeed.

      Cons

      The work can be a little monotonous but the incentives are worth it.

      Pros

      They work with your schedule if your classes are all over the place, which is very convenient. Also, the environment is very fun and social. You also get free food every once in awhile, which is pretty cool. You can apply for different positions within the company as well.

      Cons

      One downside is the pay isn't very high, but you can apply for different positions which have more pay.
