    Innovative team, weak eng leadership

    Pros

    The technology developed in-house is interesting and there are a few talented engineers who are doing creative and cutting-edge software development. Passionate CEO.

    Cons

    The engineering leadership is very weak, lacks a vision. Innovation and problem solving have been discouraged in favor of work presentation and bureaucratic process. The severity depends on the team you work with. Engineering culture has shifted from being innovative in the early days to be bureaucratic and political. Some talents have already left and a few I knew were thinking about the departure. CEO is opinionated and could be stubborn at times.

    Good benefits, smart people, interesting work

    Cons

    People disappear without a word. Frequently. Lots of "work late to get things done" culture. Ridiculous deadlines with no support.

    Perspective from recruiter contact to leaving the company

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Start up, lots of excitement, fresh ideas, an actual product that works, good benefits, you have an amazing recruiter who made my experience unique and second to none and by that I’m surprised given you are a start up. That’s gold anywhere and in my years of interviewing and dealing w recruiters with top notch companies; she’s gold! Good onboarding system. Managers smart but not when it comes to dealing w issues or suggestions.

    Cons

    But need more perks, recognition of good hard working employees, training of management (dir’s have even accepted to faults and needing training), more social activity: attract potential candidates by supporting: black history month, lgbtq month, earth day (go out and volunteer) etc post photos of inclusion letting ppl know out there that your company is a fair and equal and that you support everyone! There are ppl in your company that fall in these categories but nothing to show for it like other start ups: One of the reasons why I left for a bigger company. Everyone is really very closed in their own groups and don’t allow for others to join or at least I never felt like I could approach. Too engineer mentality thinking they are better.

    Pros

    - Great hands on experience in the robotics field - Great pay - Friendly co-workers

    Cons

    - Performance expectations from management change daily - Weekly/Monthly 1:1’s are useless as they do not reflect on annual performance review. - No pay raises - Zero job security - Management not trustworthy

    Terrible management & not a place for career growth

    Pros

    The people who are under the execs and directors are good people - smart, hard working and willing to help each other out. These are the people who are actually doing the brainstorming and execution of the business.

    Cons

    No transparency and no alignment across the departments even if they preach it to the group on a regular basis. The directors and VPs don't give consistent direction and rate your performance based on how they feel about you and NOT what you've accomplished. There's also a lot of "why didn't you do this" from upper management when they were the ones who specifically said not to do it a couple of months ago. The managers are just not invested in the success of their team members, just the overall number so they can hit their own metrics and keep their jobs, and this has been consistent feedback across many departments like engineering, marketing, product, sales...etc. The CEO has certain biases towards departments/people she likes and are friends with and has misogynistic tendencies towards specific types of women (again consistent feedback from multiple people) which is sad and ironic since she's a successful woman herself and should inspire her workers, not judge them personally.

    Pros

    There are many different problems to tackle at this company. You can take on a lot of responsibility in order to learn about different areas of robotics.

    Cons

    Fetch is growing at a pretty rapid pace. They are still trying to figure out how to scale their operations in a manageable way.

    Pros

    Cool technology Market is excellent Really interesting work

    Cons

    Executive management are partial to employees and like to keep their people. They overlook the good work people do but concentrate on finding what is wrong with people and forming an opinion about it. A lot of time is wasted in passing on the blame from one person to another.

    Pros

    The amount of innovation, growth (personal and professional), and market opportunities are the next level with Fetch. If you are looking for a Complimentary Cappuccino Bar go work at Facebook. I've worked for Fetch for over 4 months now and I'm in love with the process. I gave up on drinking Start-Up Kool-Aid years ago and if you can make the cut and get an offer letter I'd highly suggest joining if you are a winner and not a whiner.

    Cons

    The only con is reading a few of the people that have posted Glassdoor Reviews that are addicted to whining, entitlement issues, and an undiagnosed borderline personality disorder.
