    Great company, Great mission, Great team!

    Oct 13, 2022 - Account Executive in Los Angeles, CA

    CEO Approval

    Pros

    This is a solid team of individuals that really know how to work together as a team and build something mission-driven. Everyone is a critical thinker and self-starter that takes on the responsibility of the company as if it's their own, which is great to see in any startup. If you're looking for a challenge that enables professional and personal growth, this is a great environment for that.

    Cons

    Everyone likes to keep a full schedule here - so if you always need guidance, you may have some trouble. Like any startup, you'll wear multiple hats and be expected to lead initiatives and do the research that's needed to move forward, which is empowering and not the type of experience you'd get at a larger company.

    One of the best companies I've ever worked for

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - January is genuinely mission led, full of employees who truly care about the borrowers that we help get out of debt - The company has extremely thoughtful and well articulated values that are present day to day, and honestly make collaboration a joy rather than a chore - Decentralised authority mean that you have the flexibility to work on what's important to you, and ideas can come from anywhere in the business - For the rapid growth that we experience (celebrating new milestones every quarter), our teams and unusually well organised and our platforms are reliable. You won't experience much of the start-up chaos present in other companies - We have a smart and transparent leadership team who I personally trust to make the right decisions

    Cons

    - Like several big tech companies, our culture is geared toward intrinsically self motivated employees. Your job is what you make of it, which suits some personality types better than others - Because we are growing, responsibilities and priorities can change frequently. This could be difficult if you are more risk-adverse or prefer stability

    Great company culture; room to learn and grow

    Pros

    There is opportunity to learn and grow. My colleagues are smart, thoughtful individuals many of whom are motivated by making a positive impact. Good process is prioritized over outcome. Healthy culture in the workplace provides work/life balance. People are friendly, kind, professional.

    Cons

    Unlike some corporate environments, company doesn't reward putting in the extra hours. Emphasize on good process over outcome will not appeal to someone looking for fast growth, results oriented startup.
