    Pros

    Can make great income, must be willing to put in the time. Helping people who can't or don't want to do their own shopping.

    Cons

    Stare at your phone all day long waiting for good batches. Wear and tear on your vehicle. On your feet all day long shopping in grocery stores. 10-12 hours a day working.

    Pros

    Opportunities to grow depth and breath of experience. People are surprisingly very kind across the board (yes, even the brilliant engineers are approachable) and intend to do right by the customers, shoppers, and employees. Lots of opportunities to grow programs and functions from the ground up. Have noticed very low amount of territorialism / hyper political activity like I have seen at other companies in SF (see: Salesforce, Google, Facebook). I think the reason is because this company is very much still in a pivotal growth stage. Not everything has been fully matured, but it’s rapidly improving every week and every month. Get in while you can to grow something before it matures fully and becomes “boring” :)

    Cons

    Long term planning for programs is improving, but needs more structure around prioritization and accountability to get the truly highest impact items done first.
