I worked at Care.com full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The engineering team is always current on new technologies and integrating new ones. It's a highly competent team, but they think they're quite a bit better than they are.

Cons

You're there to work and work and that's it. Don't even think about trying to make suggestions about any ways to improve anything. You'll be told in no uncertain terms that you're there to code and that's it. It's also like a good old boy network, if you worked with them in a previous company, you're golden, if not, you're just a code monkey.
You should also not expect to have a life, if you don't want to put in 50-60 hours minimum, you won't fit in.
Pay is very low for work expected, which is why so much of the team is outsourced.

Advice to Management

Listen to all the employees, not the favored inner circle. So many people have ideas and are ignored. Get some diversity of work backgrounds. It seems like half the company all worked together previously.

    Pros

    Great visionaries in senior management, including Sheila who inspires me every day. "Fun force" is a great way to relax and they have fun events planned sprinkled throughout the year.

    Cons

    Wish it were in downtown / Cambridge so it would be closer to good eats.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!
