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

Pros

Pros – Growth, growth, growth. Company is expanding. Greg Golub is a visionary who has taken the insurance brokerage model and classed it up... provides top tier sales and relationship consultants who deliver on promises. Sequoia is very selective in hiring and high-touch/consultative in their approach to benefits, 401(k) and risk management (p&c) brokering. Strong client value-add with their advanced "MY BENEFITS" iphone and android apps. Sequoia has a very impressive client list -- I get to work with some of the best tech companies in the Bay Area. CEO is very generous to EEs... Entrepreneurial culture.

Cons

Cons – Hiring process can be long -- you meet with a lot of people before a decision is made. They are outgrowing their office space and infrastructure. The latter, I presume, is why they're bringing on a COO. CEO is heavily involved in all aspects of the business - not necessarily a negative but it can slow progress and may impede future growth.

Advice to Management

Improve vacation time and grow staff so current staff isn't burned out.

    Pros

    It's not every day you have the opportunity to build something special and be around positive energy like this place. I suspect some of the very few negative reviews come from former employees who might do better in a beaucratic environment where decisions get stuck in committees and progress is slow.

    Cons

    Decisions get made fast and you need to be excited about change and progress. Not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep making it happen! Happy to be on the train!
