I worked at A Place for Mom full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Wonderful, talented software development colleagues.
Great engineering managers.
Challenging software scale problems.
Solid benefits with the possibility of bonuses.
Lots of company growth potential that's being realized.

Cons

Benefits aren't great (high deductible); no matching 401k contribution.
Software development division is going through a phase of high-energy, low-stability reorganization while the company goals of scaling-up are addressed.
No opportunity for career advancement, but that's a known issue starting.
Many talented, amazing employees have been lost due to conflicts with executives.

Advice to Management

Make a long-term technology plan and apply it in an organized, consistent manner.

    I worked at A Place for Mom part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They were very flexible in scheduling and the work was rewarding most of the time

    Cons

    Felt it was very difficult to advance due to office politics and only being on a part time schedule

    Advice to Management

    Make work advancement opportunities to all not just who works a set schedule or that deems to fit the company mold, give everyone the equal opportunity to advance and grow within the company.
