    I have been working at CommonBond

    Pros

    The people - this can make or break anywhere you work, and the people here are awesome. Everyone is smart, motivated, and easy to work with and it's one of the main reasons I love going to work. Perks - flexible vacation and sick policy makes it easy to take the time off you need without stressing about it. Management is also understanding of when people need to work from home, which makes taking care of... personal things (doctors appointments, apartment issues, etc.) much easier. Love having unlimited snacks and drinks in the office. Company happy hours and other events are also really fun and help to build team and company culture. Responsibility - we are growing quickly and there's always more to do, so additional responsibility and ownership are yours for the taking. On top of that, the work is challenging and interesting, and it's rewarding to see how your individual contribution helps to grow the company. Rewarding to work for a company that is helping to address the broken student loan market and has a social mission.

    Cons

    While the fast-paced, startup environment is exciting, the workload can be a bit difficult to manage at times. Priorities can shift quickly

    Advice to Management

    Continue keeping the team informed of what's going on with the business and when priorities change, ensure the communication is thorough and clear to all teams so they know what to expect and how the changes will affect them.

    I worked at CommonBond full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There was a severe lack of management at this company, which inadvertently left a lot of room for creativity and a void of responsibility that can be consumed.

    Cons

    There is no emphasis for product at this company, and very little room for career growth. If you wish to be a part of a team that is passionate about their product, this is not the right company for you. Watch out for layoffs. The company and culture are not what it used to be.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to the feedback from your employees. No one is happy and the morale at this company is an all time low because no one feels like they are heard.
