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

    Pros

    Catered lunches, free beverages, wellness room

    Cons

    The company is constantly changing, restructuring departments and expectations without providing a transition period or support from management. Extremely overworked and underpaid with long hours, and they continue to try and squeeze more work from us. Although they try to “maintain” a neutral work environment, the pecking order is already permanently in place. The lower ranking employees are treated like crap.... Preferential treatment is rampant. It’s the perfect environment for burnout.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees! Although it’s great to reach for the stars, don’t be unhappy when you fail. Provide transition periods anytime you change expectations. Create expectations and goals that are attainable, not unrealistic. Employees can’t make miracles happen overnight. It’s great you’re hiring so much, but maybe you should support the employees you have before bringing more on board.

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

    Pros

    Fast growing company Equity growth with frequent liquidity opportunities Daily catered lunch and Friday group restaurant trips Passionate and caring executive team Shiny new office in San Francisco with fantastic city views I love the product I'm working on building. I think it'll be a game changer for private equity liquidity.

    Cons

    They did away with annual bonuses a couple years ago, which seems odd since we're growing very fast.

    Advice to Management

    Many silicon valley companies offer annual bonuses. Please bring this back.
