    I have been working at Scoot Networks full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Kind people who want to see the world become a better place. True teammates who want to help when you need it, a safe environment to fail/grow. Super healthy work/life balance: office is empty at 5:30. Free Scooting. Most people are absolutely brilliant and wonderful to work with.

    Cons

    HQ team works side-by-side with fleet mechanics and vehicle R&D which is cool but really noisy. As the team grows globally it can feel like herding cats sometimes. A lot of transparency (good) but not a ton of accountability (not good). Small player in a big space (not ideal for those looking for insane growth/valuations/unlimited budgets for tech teams). International offices and vendors can be tough to work with...

    Advice to Management

    Think really long and hard and with purpose about where we want to take the company, and whether the new directions we go in truly ladder up to the core mission. People here really give a damn about that and endure some crazy ups and downs because they believe in the mission, and will bail for more $$$ at a bigger company if the ethics take a back seat to growth. What we have is special, don’t squander it. And while we’re...

    Pros

    Team and Environment are really great. People are smart and excited about their contribution. You get to ride the scoots for free inside the office and outside.

    Cons

    The office is not in a safe location in SF. The pay is average as per SF location.

    I have been working at Scoot Networks part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very friendly and team provoking environment. The former CEO and founder is very inspiring and lead in such a way that I found myself wanting to go above and beyond with day to day work as well as critically thinking of how to make methods more efficient. Great company culture and overall value in the work done.

    Cons

    There is room for higher efficiency and better use of assets/employees. As a field technician I have run into people delighted with the service, but also people who had some nasty words. If Scoot can keep their fleet of shared e-vehicles tidy and healthy, I think everyone can be happy, whether they use the service or not.
