    Pros

    It is a fun place with. Plus you learn about the restaurants and Food is Fun.

    Cons

    No forward progress. It seemed that they would rather bring in outsiders rather than promote existing.

    I worked at OpenTable full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work life balance, ability to work from home, fantastic understanding for family life balance , opportuity to explore other areas of the business for future progression, over all very nice managment. Overseas work/vacation/bonus related oppertunities

    Cons

    People rave about the culture but the friendly family style culture has blurred the line of where friendship ends and where being a colleague or even managager begins. There is (or was)a hidden but very present negative vibe from lower levels of employees in relation to people in managment , for example frustration in transparancy from "friends ", who are in fact their manager. Such simple unnecesary issues cause regular put downs which led me to think there was a larger underlying negativity, that I was not in the office enough to experience. There was a lot of negativity in the "culture", a shame. HR were also not very approachable, I knew of colleagues that did not have confidence or trust to discuss personal matters with HR. I did not have this issue though could understand where the opinion came from.

    Advice to Management

    Unsure on direct advice though Im sure a lot can be taken from the cons I have observed. Review annual benefits, discover what your people would really appreciate vs what the team behind benefits find awsome.
