Cons

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at MapMyFitness full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Top 10 Health Apps in iTunes & Android
    - Big Data (4 workouts / seconds and 15M Users)
    - Fun (Tues Team Rides, Wed Runs, Arrested Development Fridays, Open space / indoor basketball court, xbox connect competitions, ping pong tables)
    - Neat Perks ($$ for Fitness Gear, Great Health & Dental, Flex Time, etc.)
    - Great team of people that love what they do because of their passions

    Cons

    Some people have a hard time adjusting when their passions don't align with health & fitness (running, cycling, etc.), helping others become happy and active, or solving great engineering and technical challenges (You don't have to love fitness -- you just have to really love your job and want to thrive). We're a 'Can-Do' work place and the people who end up leaving generally are those that can't don't fall in love with our environment.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back Demo Fridays where the entire company kicked back and watched new product presentations over beer

    I have been working at MapMyFitness full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    MapMyFitness is the best group of coworkers I've worked with in my career. We're building products for a market that's white hot. Real usage is growing, presenting interesting technical challenges, and growing revenue.

    Cons

    I really have nothing critical to say about the company. It's a fantastic place to work as a software developer.

    Advice to Management

    Keep crushing it.
