    Pros

    Great mission that actually provides an answer to a need that exists in the market right now. Truly great, KIND people to work with.

    Cons

    Very much a startup environment even after Care.com acquisition. Can be a good thing or a bad thing -- depends on the person.

    Advice to Management

    Be proactive of teams that lack headcount. Continue building on company culture.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Citrus Lane full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of freedom to pursue projects and drive change at the company. Experienced executives at the helm to direct you even as you take on self-driven tasks. Nurturing environment with lots of support to manage and build on new ideas. Well-funded company that's surrounded itself with experts. Great work-life balance.

    Cons

    At times the company felt unstructured. At the time I was there the engineering team was very small and overworked so it was hard for them to keep up with both the raw engineering work and UI/UX changes.

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Citrus Lane full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very strong staff across the company. Each and every individual contributor knows her own stuff and is very pleasant to work with. Company is optimally positioned in the middle of multi-billion Mom-Baby market sector.

    Cons

    Company leadership has been shifting around for the past few months and the more shifting the more chaotic it ends up being. On-par/Below average compensation. CEO is more like an accountant who talks about cutting cost all day long instead of exploring all opportunities out there at full speed.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid of failing big time, as we are start-up. If you want to play safe then go back and get a job at Google.
