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

Pros

Salary, benefits, location, topics, problems are lots of fun. Workplace is a relaxed atmosphere, and the location is right next to the bay. Across the street from a nice park.

Cons

Collaborative culture needs some work, as does upper management. There has been a lot of turnover, but most of it is improving the company.

Advice to Management

Give us some direction!

    I have been working at Quid full-time

    Pros

    - Super interesting, diverse work (across geographies, industries, functions)
    - Product driving towards a meaningful goal (ie. not a software that is delivering your laundry faster than others... you're creating an impactful solution in a new space)
    - Creative environment where new ideas/approaches are encouraged
    - Supportive leadership
    - Talented, diverse group of people: smart, savvy team that blends backgrounds in a unique way

    Cons

    - Connecting the long-term strategic vision to short-term manageable goals has been the biggest challenge for the org
    - Roles/responsibilities frequently change because of this
