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

    Pros

    Simply, EverQuote is great place to work.

    EverQuote does a great job investing in their employees. This can come in the form of teaching them skills like how to code in Python or interact with databases using SQL. They also have internal programs to help equip young managers for their new role and responsibilities. Going hand and hand with this program is EverQuote history of promoting from within and allowing employees early in their career to get incredibly valuable experience managing direct reports and engaging in strategic planning.

    Further, EverQuote is a place where you get to engage in online marketing at a truly impressive scale. At other companies you could spend hours arguing this point or that point. At EverQuote instead you run an A/B test and after a couple of hours you have enough scale to answer the question with objective rigor.

    All in all, if you have the chance to work at EverQuote, you should take it.

    Cons

    EverQuote is transitioning from being a small start-up to a mid-sized company. This doesn't come without friction, but there is nothing out ordinary for a company undergoing this transition.

    Advice to Management

    Keep promoting from within and allowing employees to grow their human capital.

    I have been working at EverQuote (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The Everquote team is more than just a bunch of employees, it really feels like a family. The people who work here spend time together outside of work, and at work, support each other fully.

    Cons

    Sometimes the day-to-day operations of the role can feel a little bit monotonous.

    Advice to Management

    Pet insurance!

    Pros

    Fantastic growth opportunities - both career wise and in personal/skill development.

    Personable, talented employees that are really grounded and fun to be around/learn from.

    Lead by an exec team that truly listens to lower level employee’s opinions.

    Cons

    Typical mid-stage startup growing pains - really an opportunity for employees to take initiative and drive the change they want to see

    Pros

    People here at EverQuote are so smart, kind, and willing to help.
    The company values individual development. Even entry level employees can bring in large impact to key projects. Also, there are lot of chances to learn different kinds of skills (analytical, communication, product management)
    Perfect work-life balance. There are many company outings and team events.
    Most importantly, I love everyone in the product team!

    Cons

    Many great product ideas but does not have enough engineering resources

    Advice to Management

    hire more engineers

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

    Pros

    All data in the company is accessible to anyone and each analyst is given full responsibility of some area of the business fairly early on. Nearly all decisions that EverQuote makes are backed by data, which makes it easy for anyone in the company to have an impact.

    Cons

    EverQuote has been working on it, but still has areas of opportunity to improve training programs for continuous development of their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Continue investing in your employees.

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

    Pros

    Culture & Strategy:
    - Very forward thinking for this industry
    - Many champions (carriers, agents, and partners) in the industry
    - Onsite and professional offsite new manager training programs
    - Product decisions are ONLY made with data/analysis backing them. No exceptions; even subjective consumer-facing ideas are first user tested before coded as A/B tests for production testing
    - Open door policy to management. I don't think employees realize how serious management is about this policy. If you have something to say, invite the CTO, CEO, or CRO for a coffee or lunch and they're happy to accommodate.

    Engineering:
    - Engineers are given freedom in choice of technology, language, and toolset
    - All production code running in AWS
    - Experimenting with new AWS technology often
    - Highly collaborative Product Management team
    - Organized Agile with dedicated tech-debt sprints focused on delivering value while minimizing tech-debt
    - Dedicated DevOps team available for support/help with new tech and production issues

    Company-wide:
    - Unlimited vacation (everyone seems professional and my time off has never been questioned)
    - 401k matching
    - Fully paid medical & dental premiums
    - Cold brew coffee, kombucha, cider, and beer on tap

    Cons

    - A lot of junior engineers but management and recruiting team has made hiring more senior managers a serious priority
    - A little more space would be nice.
    - Would be nice to have some games like Woburn office! (but space is required)
