I worked at MapMyFitness full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good benefits and pay is OK. Fairly relaxed environment for a small company. Feels good to work on a product you can use for yourself.

Cons

Missing strong technical leaders, so devs waste time wondering in the sticks. The communication barrier between the Denver and Austin offices is annoying.

Advice to Management

Follow a real development process and increase communication. Seek outside help if you can't figure it out alone.

    I have been working at MapMyFitness as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The work environment is incredible. All of the people at the office are so friendly and welcoming. Such a productive and creative learning environment.

    Cons

    The ONLY con is that I am an intern and have to leave once school starts back up.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you guys are doing, because it's working. I've worked for some other companies and the fact that y'all take the time to have an "All hands on deck" meeting and give everyone updates as to whats going on, where y'all want to take the company and what each role is, is exactly what a company like this needs to be as successful as it is and as successful as it will become.

    I have been working at MapMyFitness full-time

    Pros

    Best team of people I've ever worked with on the most amazing product I've ever built. The list of benefits are too long to list them all but there are some good ones including $500 fitness reimbursement for anything fitness related per year.

    Cons

    Sometimes things are moving so fast that some details get missed but that is the tricky part about working for startups.

    Advice to Management

    Over communicate the good stuff!
