    Pros

    I love working at Cricut! The management practices what they preach. They live their values from the bottom up. Cricut is on an incredible trajectory! I've been incredibly impressed with the solid growth of this company and the fantastic culture that they have built. Praise is given when it is deserved at the highest levels of the company. Candid feedback on performance is also give extremely fairly and done in a way where you know leadership is rooting for you to succeed. This is just an amazing place to work!

    Cons

    None! Keep doing a great job!

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

    Pros

    Cricut is a fast-growing, fast-paced company that has the energy and excitement of a startup in many respects. It has developed a very strong brand through compelling products, fun marketing and a passionate customer base. Key strengths: - Strong executive team who live the company values - Fantastic product pipeline that is innovating in many areas - Amazing financials that just keep getting stronger - A commitment to maintaining the right culture, and continual internal surveys and open dialogue feedback

    Cons

    I've worked for Fortune 100 companies and startups, and have seen the best and worst in both types of organizations. Cricut isn't perfect, but on the scale of excellence they're in the top 10%. However, it's not the right place for everyone. People coming to Cricut should be comfortable with ambiguity and change. With so much growth over the last 5 years there are still many systems and processes that need to catch up. If you work better in highly structured environments where every role is clearly defined and matrixed with every other department, Cricut may not be a good fit. Sometimes it's controlled chaos! There's usually too much to do in a day, so personalities that can deal with that will fare better than those who get overwhelmed easily. And obviously every department is unique, and no employee can speak for the entire company. The company has outgrown some people's abilities and skills, and if they can't find a good fit somewhere else they've had to exit them.

    Pros

    A commitment to people, products, culture/values. I love working for a company where I feel loved, respected and supported by my colleagues, the management team, as well as the CEO of the company. I know these individuals and the company care about me as a member of the Cricut team, my family, as well as my career. I love that the company regularly surveys all team members on what and how they're thinking and feeling...they care about what I think, what I'm concerned about and how I'm feeling. I love the reason and purpose that our company exists: to help people lead creative lives! I love being a part of a team that helps make amazing products...products and services that make people happy, that help make the world a kinder and friendlier place. I love our community that inspires and supports one another...that helps me and our members express our creative best.

    Cons

    The company is and has been growing rapidly since the rebirth of the company in 2012, and as a result has experienced some challenging growing pains: at times inadequate processes, not enough headcount to support that growth, and long, long hours and weeks at times. While these growing pains are listed as Cons, I also see them as opportunities: an opportunity to develop processes and systems to support the growth, making a greater impact and mark on the business through my individual efforts, and working those long hours to help build an amazing business and brand that I can be proud of, and one day tell my grandchildren that I was part of a team that helped create and launch the Cricut brand.

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

    Pros

    Great product, paid holidays, employee discount

    Cons

    Cricut will keep you in Temp status forever. I know of several people who quit because they got tired of empty promises and putting in dues for a year or more with no follow through. They will also like to keep you as a temp so that they can let you go with little to no reason or explanation. It saves them money, and its easier to start over with someone new instead of putting in the time to help you grow competently in your position. They consistently report amazing growth, but somehow still can't afford to officially hire you. All while paying for your benefits, wages, and PTO. Makes sense right? There are no resources for issues with HR. I had needed a simple VOE for a home loan, but after an error from HR, the underwriter was forced to deny to loan. There were no resources available to correct or follow up on the issue. They did not care at all that their actions had a significant, negative effect on an employee's life. It starts out as such a wonderful place to work, up until you are blindsided by how little you really mattered to them. I would advise anyone thinking about working at Cricut to be prepared for disappointment.
