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

Pros

-Great company mission and unique business approach
-A spacious office that is designed in a way that allows for great collaboration
-Super friendly and supportive co-workers and staff
-Great company growth and stability while maintaining that “start-up” feel
-A stocked kitchen and catered lunch every Friday
- Located in the SOMA district of San Francisco-surrounded by tons of great shops and restaurants as well as extremely convenient to get to via public transit

Cons

-There are a lot of employees that make up several different departments, which makes it a bit more difficult to meet and get to know everyone

Advice to Management

-Potentially find a way to communicate to all employees about what each department within SquareTrade is working on to gain and even greater sense of community and a better understanding of how the business is doing, progressing and succeeding

    - Be prepared to put in as many hours as needed to finish your work.
    - The company is moving rapidly-- sometimes changes are not communicated to everyone within the company

    I have been working at SquareTrade full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Has good product; has really shown warranties can be a smart thing for folks to buy.
    Nice new facility. Very open
    They feed us alot and pretty often

    Cons

    -Culture and work environment is really changing over the past year or so. Not in a good way
    -Growing so fast - concerned that the focus is all about how numbers look versus 18months ago where it was delivering the very best service on electronics.
    -The new executives they are bringing in combined with the change to Bain are all focused on going public. This is changing lots of the things that we so great about ST in the past

    Advice to Management

    CEO & COO need to get more involved, like they use to be, in the details of what is behind the slidesware they are being shown. A lot of talk about culture and values and an award every now and then... But are the decisions you guys making really based on these values?
