      Fast-Paced, Good Culture, Important Work

      Pros

      A great culture with excellent colleagues who are happy to help and focus on getting things done. Leadership is candid and seems to have noticeably improved after setbacks, especially when it comes to the quality of senior leadership hires. The company mission is a net positive for the world. A good fit if you're young, eager to put in effort, and willing to work your way up.

      Cons

      Lots of growing pains, especially when it comes to processes that worked well when the company was smaller but aren't suitable anymore. Endless data quality problems, although this is gradually getting better. How well things go for employees seems to be really dependent on what team you join; some groups are a lot better than others. High employee turnover due to high workloads and big reorgs in the past year or so.

      Pros

      In silicon valley, where transparent missions and low value-add businesses are a dime a dozen, Flexport is the real deal. A great blend of tech and traditional industry experience.

      Cons

      Lots of work, not easy problems

      Pros

      Reasonable management, strong business teams, super interesting problems. People are smart, friendly. Culture is energetic, and there's a lot of enthusiasm in business units.

      Cons

      Tech leadership is less developed, communicative. Strategy is a bit broad, and there's a resultant disconnect at top level to IC work and scope. The same enthusiasm is missing in the engineering org, since we've accumulated a bunch of tech debt while scaling the org.
