    I have been working at Porch full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Porch is a place to plant your flag and become who you want to be. There are many problems to solve and there isn't a stand-in line/wait your turn environment that stunts an individuals growth. It has easily been the place that has pushed me to grow more than an other stop in my career.

    Cons

    You can nitpick if you want. Some aren't cut out for the start up mentality and open office environment that Porch fosters. I could imagine someone might find the limited bathroom capacity annoying.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing and pushing your employees to grow. As we grow, don't forget to grow the systems and structure to keep the same spirit that has driven us this far.

    Pros

    Culture is great. You can grow outside of your role.

    Cons

    If you are not used to change it is hard to adjust. Understanding the product and being able to adjust is a must. You need to have sales experience or the ability to learn fast.

    I worked at Porch full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    + The people. Porch is a company that attracts young and diverse employees, which results in an incredibly fun work environment. I've made some lifelong friends during my time at Porch + The location is pretty awesome - right down in SoDo near the stadiums with some great food all around

    Cons

    + Work like this is typically a stop gap measure for people - build some experience and move onto bigger things. It was rare to see people promoted and elevated internally, at least when I was there. My Account Management team went through 4 managers in 1 calendar year, and all 4 were external hires. No wonder they all ended up washing out. In a customer facing role, the key to success is understanding the customer,... and there were plenty of strong candidates to choose from internally + Management does not do a great job at listening and learning from the people in the trenches. The all-hands meetings seem a bit manufactured.
