    I have been working at EverFi full-time

    Pros

    I have been working at EVERFI for almost a year and I have never been happier. EVERFI's culture is like no other, the environment is electric, high energy, and supportive. Management does as much as they can to make each and every individual successful. EVERFI offers many growth opportunities and are always looking to promote from within.

    Awesome company culture and great open office space in Georgetown DC.

    Cons

    No 401K match
    Office in Georgetown - Hard commute

    I worked at EverFi full-time

    Pros

    None at all so do not work here

    Cons

    Terrible management. They care more about themselves than employees. They have no training and never communicate with you. Terrible low salary below standards and they over promise and under deliver. They need to learn how to treat employees. Worst company ever!

    Advice to Management

    Fire your managers, train your new ones, stop lying to employees and pretending to care.

    It is a great company with a fun culture and open office in washington DC

    Cons

    None! I have been working for 2 weeks and love it so far. The on boarding process has been great

    Advice to Management

    Nothing! Management is great. They have a clear vision and expect a lot from employees. They have built a positive culture

    I have been working at EverFi full-time

    Pros

    - Great team environment (some of the best people you'll ever work with)
    - Prime spot in Georgetown by the waterfront
    - Great work life balance
    - The best PTO options
    - Very open space
    - Huge opportunities to grow within the company
    - Work hard play hard mentality
    - Everyone is nice and welcoming

    Cons

    - Depending on the team, but training new hires can be improved. It was not the smoothest transaction and it felt very rushed.
    - Georgetown isn't the greatest to get to with transportation. It would be nice to have an option for all employees to be able to work remote if it makes sense (just like once a week).

    I have been working at EverFi full-time

    Pros

    A lot of great people, sadly some have left and I am sure more will follow.
    Fun company paid events like Palooza, sports outings, sponsored lunches and free tickets for events from time to time
    Great location in Washington and easy to commute from Virginia (under 30 minutes!)
    A few of the senior management have experience and are amazing and great to work with in the DC office.
    A majority of women in the office so not a fraternity atmosphere.

    Cons

    Company has lost its way. Or maybe we are just not managed correctly. We have unrealistic sales goals (of which we missed for last quarter) and I am sure we will re-forecast our sales expectations for the rest of 2017 but again, they will not be realistic. Our CEO is never here and when he is there is no guidance. Just a lot of stories about who he has met, etc. The COO runs around frantic with mixed results. This seems like her first role as a COO. The Company recently raised a lot of money and there are a lot of expectations. Which is fine. Just not sure we have the right CEO or COO to get us there and meet those expectations. If we keep missing our numbers, i guess someone will finally realize . . .

    Advice to Management

    Hire a real COO with experience.
    Hire a CEO with true experience. A Founder only gets you so far.
    Office is really cramped-- move to a bigger space!
    Consider parking reimbursement for some employees so we can drive in!

    I worked at EverFi full-time

    Pros

    Talented employees, good customer base, nice office location, good working atmosphere

    Cons

    Senior management needs to be replaced or seek improvement. COO manages by yelling and does not understand the majority of the issues she manages. CEO is a figurehead-- at best. More concerned with image than anything. The business model will fail if the right management is not in place.

    Advice to Management

    Either seek guidance in how to improve your senior manager's performance or replace them.

    Pros

    Awesome company culture, great career growth opportunities, flexible work hours, really doing work that is having an impact on society.

    Cons

    No parking for employees at the office. This can get really expensive to pay to park everyday in Georgetown. Office is in a location that's inconvenient to get to. No 401K match.

    Advice to Management

    Reimburse or provide a stipend for parking for employees.
