    I have been working at Care.com full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Engaging and inspiring CEO. Employees are passionate about the mission. Flexible hours/schedules. Everyone is very friendly and nice

    Cons

    Sometimes being nice is prioritized over being honest or straight forward. I think this can lead to priorities being a little broad and not focused.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being transparent with employees about performance and set high goals to challenge people to work harder.

    I worked at Care.com full-time

    Pros

    You'll get to work hard with some really wicked smart people. You just have to sift through some chaff to find these folks.

    Cons

    As the company has grown and become famous, it has attracted folks that are really in it only for themselves. If you're unlucky enough to be working for these political mavens, then life is going to be rough.

    I worked at Care.com full-time

    Pros

    People are excellent. Management supports growth.

    Cons

    The only can would be the location. I think that the company would attract more people if not in Waltham.

    I loved working at Care.com. I don't think I would want anything to change.
