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

    Pros

    Great team that comes up with superbly customer-focused solutions to in an entirely untapped amateur sports market.
    Employees can really make an impact and have a say in nearly every aspect of the company.
    New technologies, great opportunities to learn and grow.
    Founders really believes in the product, and it's infectious.
    Flexible work hours, great office environment.

    Cons

    Compensation and benefits are lower than larger companies in NYC can offer.
    Growing pains of a startup mean that there is some volatility, some late hours and weekends, but that's all part of the fun.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Onboarding process will need to be streamlined as the company continues to grow, but you guys are great at listening for feedback and continuing to incorporate it.

    I worked at GameChanger full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Plenty of perks, positive and easygoing environment, incredibly intelligent and resourceful team, genuine passion for the product, ambitious, growing fast, bright future, lots of opportunities to learn.

    Cons

    If you're not right for the job, you may find out too late. Despite what they say in the interview, you pretty much have to be at least somewhat of a sports fan to enjoy working here. The sense of superiority can occasionally be off-putting and the start-up culture occasionally forced.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, honestly. It wasn't right for me but you're doing a lot of things very, very well.

    I have been working at GameChanger full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Incredible office environment, great place to learn/grow, is taking over the massive and massively underserved amateur sports market. People expect a lot of each other and will not settle for anything less than a phenomenal customer experience, but are also very eager to celebrate with each other. Plus there are two beer fridges.

    Cons

    Still a startup, so won't get quite the massive perks/payout of a Google or Amazon.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    I worked at GameChanger full-time

    Pros

    Ted and Kiril are not only great leaders, but incredibly caring individuals as well. Both go above and beyond in terms of taking care of their employees. Culture is very energetic and fun - tons of events, some organized by the company, some not. It's also a fun product to work on/with as well.

    Cons

    Office space is a little tight. If you are not willing to put in the research to learn the amateur sports market, you may struggle.
