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

    Pros

    I've greatly enjoyed my time so far at Favor. The people and culture are genuinely great and do not come across as contrived. We're growing fast so it's a good mix of mature startup and SMB. The engineers as well as designers, product, and other technical people are all top notch. There's also a strong culture of encouraging personal growth and even lateral job movement. Despite the growth, the company is still very flat and there's little to no red tape. I greatly enjoy coming in to work every day due to my coworkers, leadership, and the projects I'm working on. Also, free food and Favors! Leadership does a good job of making sure everyone understands what we're doing as a company and why. Lots of planned social events. Cool big company perks like HEB partner benefits. Compensation is more than fair. Probably my favorite job I've ever had.

    If you're deciding to interview or accept an offer here, I'd note that a lot of the more mixed reviews on Glassdoor are coming from contract runners (a la Uber drivers) who have a different view than a full-time employee.

    Cons

    Post-acquisition so there's no equity if you come on-board now. 401K match could be better, but there's a long vesting HEB stock bonus that makes up for it if you plan on being at Favor for the long haul. Typical growing pains in terms of cramped office space, but we're moving this year. If you're a ladder climber, we're still too small to really have a ladder to climb. Great product and engineering, but we're not really saving lives or changing the world if that matters to you. No tuition reimbursement (rumored to be coming) and no other fringe benefits like donation matching or formal education budget.

    Pros

    Freedom to work when you want

    Cons

    lack available working hours, no benefits, no reimbursement for gas, milage, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Do the right thing!
    Stop hiring on a contract-only basis and give your runners the option to hire on permanently and offer them benefits!
