    Pros

    If you are looking for an environment that cares about your success and invests in your growth, Conductor is like no other company. Not only is Conductor the category leader with an "inspiring roadmap" (Noted by Forrester), it is part of the fastest growing company in the world - WeWork. This coupled with it's ambitious efforts by its employees and leadership means the company is on track to achieve its mission to...

    Cons

    You will likely learn more at Conductor than any other place and often take you out of your comfort zone. Conductor is a fast-paced environment encouraging it's employees to achieve the impossible. In that environment, change is inevitable. Being adaptable to change and learning fast from failures is necessary to be successful. This may not be right for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep encouraging employees to strive for the impossible!

    Pros

    As Conductor continues to grow the SF office has been an incredible opportunity to get hands-on experience with Sr Level employees at the company. This office also allows you to grow quickly and accelerate your career path more than you would be able to at a larger company due to exposure to high-level employees. Conductor also has a very transparent, vocal work environment and provides you with all of the resources...

    Pros

    Great people to work with and learn from. Our leadership is very democratic and open to feedback. Able to influence beyond my own function. Experienced significant growth during my tenure at Conductor and look forward to continued success as the company continues to grow.

    Cons

    There's a lot of change and things move really quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Mission, vision, and thought leadership are important. Continue to create strategic alignment and hire a good mix of diverse candidates that bring execution chops as well.

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

    Pros

    Conductor is great for a number of reasons but mainly because everyone is always working on ways to improve themselves, the work environment and the company. The people are thoughtful towards others, considerate of new voices and open to new ideas from everybody. Leaders are always pushing people to step out of their comfort zone and speak up and then actually listening. Managers listen to their employees, executives...

    Cons

    As with most acquired companies there are growing pains associated with a parent company and the changes that come with growth. These are apparent but not stagnant, things are being worked on and there is clear visibility across channels.

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

    Pros

    I haven't been here very long but so far the pro's I can speak to are: Transparency w CEO/ Execs, Fun Culture, Great benefits, Great PTO, Perks in the office plus fun team events, fast growing, People First mentality and lots of growth potential. Everyone is very friendly and willing to help and answer questions

    Cons

    As with any large company hard to get to know everyone but they do their best to announce new hires and integrate you. Hopefully, in time I will feel less of small fish in big pond vibes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to employees and make time for them. Strategically prioritize time and put yourself in the employee's shoes.

    I have been working at Conductor full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Conductor is an amazing place if you want to invest in your passion. It's a place that rarely hold you back in taking on a dream but will require you to really push yourself to do it. There isn't an army of folks to get things done but scrappy ingenuity and a deep seeded desire to improve the status quo is a staple part of our DNA.

    Cons

    Lots of change and often fast moving pace. Only a Con if you like to be sedentary and fly under the radar. You really should be passionate

    Advice to Management

    Share your struggles in getting things right, a lot of what you do has never been done before and retrospectives on how it could have been done better should be shared openly.

    I have been working at Conductor full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Conductor has a very merit-based culture. This is my first job out of college and I attribute so much of my growth, both professional and personal, to Conductor. It is a very hit-the-ground-running environment, and hard work is valued and recognized. It's been so wonderful to have support from leadership, and I am especially grateful for the amazing managerial support I received that encouraged me to pitch and earn my...

    Cons

    Conductor isn't perfect, but by hosting open forums to ask questions directly to leadership, it shows how much we are always striving to improve.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to take the time to work closely with all Conductors, especially new ones.

    I have been working at Conductor full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Conductor is the best company that I've ever worked at, hands down. My role is challenging but in a very good way. I'm constantly learning new things, making a huge impact both internally and for our clients, and it seems that every day the clock completely flies by. I genuinely love my co-workers, I think Conductor has done a great job hiring A players who not only excel at their jobs but also are amazing to...

    Cons

    Like a lot of companies, there are no shortage of meetings. While Conductor does a great job trying to limit them (in fact, there is even a period every week known as freeze where internal meetings are discouraged), the amount of meeting can still be quite a lot at times. There are also downsides of being extremely transparent with the entire company (no - this isn't a criticism that's really a compliment). I think...

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on the culture as we continue to grow so fast. We've done a great job of that so far but that's our secret sauce and we can never lose sight of it.

    I have been working at Conductor full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If there's one thing I can say about Conductor after being here for 2 years, it's that they hire the nicest, most genuine people. I can honestly say that every morning when I come in I am greeted by smiling faces, and I leave every evening happy. The recruitment team truly does a tremendous job at hiring not only qualified & talented people, but also just good people.

    Cons

    I wish we had another Pacman machine because we only have one.

    Pros

    - Transparent leadership - People who actually care about their job - Smart and talented people to learn from - Emphasis on growth and development

    Cons

    Lots of changes and growing pains. Since Conductor was acquired by WeWork we've been trying to figure out how to scale our business and operationalize it. High growth inevitably results in lots of change and pivots, but it keeps us on our toes.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to communicate the challenges and continue to be direct about how we're managing them.
