    Great Company!

    Pros

    -Fully remote company that is extremely diverse. -They care about their people and I feel like everyone is heard. -I've been on calls with the CEO, who is amazing to listen to btw, and I can't say that I've ever done that at previous employments. -They are heavily invested in their mission and core values. -They value and prioritize your personal life, if you need time off (unlimited pto) you can get it with no repercussions. No idea about some of the negative reviews, but I have not personally experienced anything they've mentioned. I've spoken to upper management and they are extremely thoughtful, encouraging, and probably some of the most pleasant people I've ever worked. I'm new to remote work and was worried about having my kids in the background or even alluding to the fact that I had a family, but everyone knows my kids, they make appearances on calls all the time.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than other companies but it's a startup so I don't expect to get paid like a major tech company. It's still a pretty good compensation though.

    A sinking ship that seems to have a lot of runway

    Aug 14, 2022 - Senior Software Engineer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    There are a lot of problems to solve, new problems every day in fact. The company lives its work/life balance values and treats employees incredibly well. Senior technical leadership come from engineering backgrounds and are able to talk tech when it matters.

    Cons

    There are a lot of Senior and Lead engineers across the organization that wouldn't pass a Junior interview. A lot of lone wolf engineers creating more work for everyone else without oversight and accountability. The most interesting problems are never dealt with, rather than engineering solutions you'll often be relegated to answering queries from management and trying to determine just how bad the latest bug is.

    Used to be great, lots of red flags now

    Pros

    Lots of smart, capable coworkers. Fully remote. Great flexibility for those with children. Generally great company culture.

    Cons

    Used to be a rock star, amazing group and team on the coaching side - but almost everyone has left, due to either: -not being able to advance / no promotions or raises -management not listening to concerns about the product/advice -red flags with upper management (which has been pointed out by many, but the situation hasn't changed) - see many other reviews to this point. -below market rate compensation

    Don't Ever Question Management

    Apr 25, 2022 - Client Experience Associate 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    There are some good people who work for EV, and are doing good work. The thought behind the mission is valuable and easy to want to be a part of.

    Cons

    Don't even think about questioning Management/Leadership. They don't care to be challenged or asked why they're doing things the way they are. The behavior passed down for (majority of) leadership is toxic.

    Amazing colleagues - serious management issues

    Sep 19, 2021 - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Amazing co-workers who truly care about what they are doing. Highly skilled peers that are incredible and fun to work with - you will have real friends here.

    Cons

    Upper Management / leadership does not listen to their employees - nor do they provide them with the tools they need to grow. Lower levels are taken advantage of and work for very little pay. Management has lost the vision of who they are building for and why. There is a lot of tension between leadership and the rest of the company.

    Pros

    Sallie Krawcheck and her team are incredibly hard-working, efficient, and good people to work with. She hires young and innovative people. Her door is always open, as she sits with the rest of the team in an open floor plan. Everyone who works there is kind and dedicated to the company. The company has a stellar People Operations team.

    Cons

    No downsides to working here.

    One of the best startups in NYC

    Jun 28, 2019 - Marketing in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Smart, diverse coworkers who truly care about the mission of putting more money in the hands of women (and putting our clients first). Lots of really interesting projects compared with most financial companies. It's fun seeing the company and the CEO in the news all the time and having such good name recognition for such an early stage company. Flexible workplace and solid office perks.

    Cons

    We have tough goals, and working here can be pretty demanding at times
