    I worked at Clover for more than a year

    Pros

    - Most people are really fun to be around. Lots of social stuff. - Lots of interesting things to work on (Back-end, front-end, kernel, apps) - Lots of freedom to horse around.

    Cons

    - Terrible at testing products. - Ops dept is lazy, refuses to share knowledge, and aren't very good at their job. - Engineering practices of new-grads. No learning from other's experience. No understanding of system-building.

    Advice to Management

    - Stop hiring bootcampers/new-grads developers - Start hiring experienced managers

    I have been working at Clover

    Pros

    Excellent benefits. Flexible, open minded manager who values transparency, leadership and results. High caliber colleagues. Regular, creative, fun events like hackathons and off site retreats. Happy hours twice a month. Beautiful, environmentally friendly office that encourages interaction. I enjoy the challenges of dealing with the large scale as a result of Clover's success.

    Cons

    There is a lot of work to do

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

    Pros

    Benefits are great. The daily catered lunch and dinner are great. Clover is one of the few companies left with 100% employer paid health insurance. The no hassle expenses policy means you get the equipment you need to get the job done

    Cons

    Point of Sale/ Payment Card Industry (PoS/PCI) aren't that glamorous. The company is constancy moving into new offices to accommodate its growth. The "stock options" aren't really equity.
