Pros

Many companies talk about reshaping an industry, but Lending Club is one of the select few that is actually achieving this lofty goal. Growth comes in monthly leaps that just seem to keep accelerating, leading to ever-larger opportunities. While every company talks about scale, we really (have to) mean it, which leads to an intriguing focus on how do we keep more efficient and do bigger things. Working here is definitely a chance to be a part of something special.

Overall, company is stocked with really great people working towards a common goal. Surprisingly good work/life balance and plenty of opportunities to make friends.

Cons

With rapid growth can come rapid change, which can be turbulent. Your role and expectations can be radically different every six months - the bar keeps getting higher - but that generally leads to bigger and better opportunities for those who are willing to step up and do more. If you're looking for a job where you punch in, make your widgets and then punch out, this is not the place for you you.

Advice to Management

Stay nimble and stay focused. As the company (again) doubles its staff, management gets exponentially more challenging. Keep finding and rewarding good people; get the under-performers out faster. Invest more in crafting a positive and and exceptional culture that matches our success.

    Pros

    Visionary leadership, really smart executive team, and a willingness to try new ideas makes this an awesome place to work. The culture is fun and energetic, they pay 100% of medical, have free gym membership, pay well, and plenty of opportunity to make contribution and be visible. The business model is disrupting an old existing business with technology, which provides a worthwhile calling as well.

    Cons

    This is a great place to work, having a hard time coming up with anything negative to say. Ideally we would have free lunch and dinner, but the snacks are high quality.

    Advice to Management

    Keep small company culture as you continue to grow.

    I have been working at LendingClub full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Well managed company, excellent board of directors, rapid growth, fast paced environment, great people, interesting problem space, happy hour culture, rewarded for your effort, always being talked about in the news, close to home

    Cons

    There aren't many Con's, just the natural 'growing pains' that come from working at a well-managed company hitting hockey-stick growth: Long hours, always running out of space, not enough time to do everything we need to
