Pros

Best part of the company is the people. Hyper-intelligent and very friendly team.
 Fast paced environment focused on results.

Cons

Growth has been fun to see but is happening so quickly that it has been difficult to maintain the culture. Not a good fit for people that think a start up is about playing table tennis.

Advice to Management

Keep the growth machine going but pay more attention to how growth is affecting teams.

    I worked at SmartAsset full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of very smart people who are trying to do their best

    Cons

    CEO Michael Carvin has been lying to people at the company, especially about compensation. Pretended he didn't know people were being underpaid relative to what they were promised. Tells people the company promotes from within but almost never does, and offers minimal raises along with promotions. Flexible vacation became limited time off and sick days. Pinching pennies is more important than taking care of employees. Trust has evaporated and half the company is looking for a new job. You've been warned

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying/hiding things and treat employees like people

    I have been working at SmartAsset full-time

    Pros

    Great location, lunch catered 3x a week, nice group of people to work with everyday. Great culture, looking for more volunteer and social events to be apart of. Hopeful to have more of that in the future.

    Cons

    Needs a bit more structure. However, once the company surpasses and evolves branching from the startup phase, I believe there will be more structure and implemented.
