    I worked at Hello Labs full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    • Seeks to implement best practices • Teammates are friendly and very smart • Boss is easy to get along with and very smart • From what I've gathered from my peers who are engineers in other companies, the codebase is in good shape

    Cons

    None really. A great place to work.

    I have been working at Hello Labs full-time

    Pros

    Work from home - over half of the employees are remote (within US, not outsourced). Small company atmosphere. There is always work to be done and ideas for improvement are encouraged. Very good benefits package that includes unlimited PTO and workers are encouraged to take as much as they need. Ownership is always looking to innovate not just their products but also how the company is run and the tools used daily.

    Cons

    It can be hard to keep up and will require someone that is capable of knowing their limits and when to take a step back. A lot of stressful situations working in a fast paced business. Customers aren't always the most understanding.

    I have been working at Hello Labs full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Great work life balance, unlimited days off, and overtime is not encouraged. -Great co-workers, they really follow the "No a**hole" rule when it comes to hiring. -Work from home, the majority of the team is remote. (can be a con to some people) -It's a family business and employees are treated like so. Management is very reasonable and flexible. -Current team of developers cares about their craft, and are constantly making improvements to the products and processes. -Good benefits (health, dental, 401k) for a small company. -It's a small team and you can make significant impact on the company and product.

    Cons

    -It's a niche industry and it takes a while to understand all the different players, regulations, acronyms, etc... -The existing (legacy) product consists of millions of lines of Perl using a mix of different conventions, standards, and ideologies. It's is a huge pain to understand and maintain. -The legacy product is still buggy which leads to weekly "fire drills". -The legacy development team is relatively new to the code base, and there is little to no documentation. Very few people understand how the entire system is supposed to work.
