    Better than you've heard - Flywheel is legit.

    Pros

    Company culture is lived out through small decisions every day. The things you see about us in your social media channels doesn't tell half the story of how incredible this company really is. The leadership team is obsessed with our customers and our team and it shows through the building (well, right now the virtual world).

    Cons

    Sometimes our culture can be portrayed in away that doesn't show how sophisticated or strategic our organization is. You can't see this very well, but Flywheel is financially backed by one of the most successful private equity firms in the world and leads innovation in the Wordpress managed hosting space. BTW Wordpress is about 1/3 of the internet...

    LOTS of changes (although I also view this as a pro - and it is expected with smaller companies that are growing

    It's the Disneyland of jobs.

    Pros

    Employee experience is so thoughtfully planned by our People Team. Great office, great pay, snacks are plentiful! Dog friendly. I work with people that enjoy working hard and creating amazing things.

    Cons

    With growth comes the need for more "corporate" processes. However, we are still a young company so you need to be someone who wants to be a part of solutions to enjoy your role here.

    Pros

    The culture at Flywheel is something that you won’t find anywhere else. It is a rocket ship for company growth. You can be yourself and do the work you want to do.

    Cons

    Things change pretty frequently at Flywheel so if you aren’t easily adaptable to change it may not be the best fit for you.

    If in Sales, avoid at all costs

    Pros

    Great PTO and benefits. They also give you your own laptop and most software expenses are covered for you! It seems like a happy place to work if you are on Support, Product, Marketing, or Engineering too. Also, Dusty is a fantastic CEO. He truly does care for his employees.

    Cons

    No support for Sales. You do not get a work-life balance. Other departments seem to run all over Sales and it feels like policies only change in order to make it worse for you to be in a "closing" role. If you are thinking about applying to be in sales at Flywheel I would not apply.

    Growth opportunity, Autonomy and trust, great teams
