I have been working at Care.com full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The people are very smart and have very high standards for themselves. This is one of the hardest-working and smartest group of people I have ever worked with. At the same time, people work really well together in a collaborative environment. Politics and turf battles are rare. Instead of competing with each other, people work well together and compete against common goals.

Cons

The hours can be long. Work/life balance is sometimes hard to maintain.

Advice to Management

Compensation and benefits should be more competitive, especially since the office is located in Waltham, instead of Boston's Innovation District or Kendall Square.

    I have been working at Care.com full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Depending on the position you have, you will have a lot of work thrown at you. Amazing growth opportunities and the chance to rise up the ranks and the firm grows. And it is growing!

    Cons

    It's not uncommon for people to work 7 days a week for horribly low pay. With the fast growth, you also have a lot of superstar individuals who're now in managerial positions. They've never managed before and you never want to work under a rookie manager. It is painful. .

    Advice to Management

    The values you state at the company meetings are not the ones you practice. We know that. We discuss these things in our own private groups and at our office lunches. But with the kind of opportunities you offer, who would leave? You look great on my resume. This is no longer the "we're all here together as a family" and "honesty & openness" start-up I joined. And the way we're growing, I'm okay bearing with that.
