    +Growing like crazy, went nationwide in the last few months

    Cons

    +Start-ups can be a grind... gotta hustle to survive
    +There isn't 100% of internal processes in place yet. Still figuring out some policies, HR, culture etc. Causes some frustration but things seem like they are getting better

    I have been working at FiveStars full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've been working at FiveStars for about 8 months and have loved every day of it. I love the culture, and the opportunity to own projects that I would never have been given elsewhere. There are crazy hectic times, and there are fun relaxed times. What's important, and keeps me satisfied, is that we all go through them together -- as a team.

    Cons

    Talk to anyone at a start-up and they will tell you that it's a struggle to maintain a healthy work-life balance. FiveStars is no different. You have to consciously make the effort to put aside your phone and take a nap at Dolores Park.

    Advice to Management

    No advice. I believe in you, as much as you believe in me =]
