Pros

Internship spanned across multiple areas of the start up process, given the chance to gain experience in all areas of building a site geared toward services. Daily interaction with executives, all managers are very open to answer questions and assist with any problems, completely hands on. Continuous learning environment. Gained a lot of experience in a short amount of time. Environment reminded me of Google, interns could come to work in comfortable clothing, use their own laptops, and were given free range of offices to choose the most comfortable work environment; believed that if interns were comfortable, there would be great efficiency and productivity.

Cons

During my internship at Thumbtack I can honestly say there were no downsides. The executives/managers even brought in a chef to cook interns lunch and dinner so that we could continue working while getting a great meal!

Advice to Management

As mentioned before, GREAT MANAGEMENT! Extremely hands on and friendly, complete transparency and trust from the CEO down to each intern.

    Pros

    The culinary staff and the meals they provided were amazing. I also really enjoyed the awesome office layout/design. It felt like you weren't going into work, but rather a really cool and trendy cafe or coffee shop.

    Cons

    The leadership is incredibly disappointing and there was a ton of nepotism and elitism amongst them. During my time there, I saw 3 VPs let go who all had much more experience than the founders who never worked in tech prior to starting the company. Though a startup, they acted like they were already an established company 5x the size.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to be humble and not just hire your friends and former consultants because you think they're smart. Being smart is one thing, but being smart and having the right experience goes so much further.
