    I have been working at GoCo.io full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I'm very recent here at GoCo, and my main concern was the uncertainty of joining a start up company. Taking this leap of faith has been incredibly rewarding already. The staff is a giant family, the leadership listen and cares, they have so many tools in place to make your environment user friendly (portable computers, large screens, awesome break room, open workspaces), etc etc etc. I could go on and on but I think you get the point. Not to mention the product is AMAZING and saves people so much time.

    Cons

    It seriously tempting to eat out daily for lunch with all the walkable restaurants in the area.

    I worked at GoCo.io (Less than a year)

    Pros

    relaxed environment, close knit coworkers, product innovation

    Cons

    overpromises, limited term priorities, still developing

    Advice to Management

    Focus on completing each commitment 100% before moving onto something else. Recognize your limitations before overpromising.

    I have been working at GoCo.io full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Your voice will always be heard & more importantly, taken into account. It's a place that recognizes the value of team effort. You're part of something greater and the ride along the way is fun as heck.

    Colleagues become friends, the working environment is conducive for personal growth, and there's always a new event being planned to get everyone together out of the office.

    Cons

    Snack selection could be improved.

    Advice to Management

    Consider "Lunch 'ya got"

    I have been working at GoCo.io full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've been working at GoCo for a couple of months now, and I have enjoyed every minute of it. Leadership always challenges you so you can grow professionally; constant 1-1s so you can have real-time feedback and give feedback as well. The office is an open space so you can interact with different departments and leadership alike, and No Cubicles! Coworkers are friendly and always willing to help; monthly events such as happy hour, team building activities, and once in a while food catered to the office.
    Everyone that joins our team shares a passion for helping GoCo succeed, and that definitely translates in how fast we are growing.

    Cons

    The only con I have is the commute as the company is located near the IAH airport, so traffic can be a challenge sometimes if you live far from there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, guys!

    Pros

    Attractive compensation plan for high performers, nearly 2x of industry
    Great Benefits Options
    Talented team to work with
    Really great energy all around

    Cons

    Location is a little north and out of the way for those living downtown.

    Advice to Management

    Managing the balance of high drive and limited resources of a startup isn't easy, we're on the right track and you're doing a good job. Hopefully we can continue to grow the support team while maintaining the high talent.

    I have been working at GoCo.io full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Joining GoCo is the single greatest career move I've ever made. Every member of the team are rockstars at what they do and are very down to earth and a pleasure to be around. In addition, the founders are incredibly seasoned entrepreneurs and demonstrate a level of leadership and cohesion that is incredibly hard to come by. I can't imagine working anywhere else.

    Cons

    Maybe not a good fit for someone expecting to come in and have a very discrete plan laid out for them. As a fast-growing startup, we bring in smart people to figure it out on their own and although help is there when you need it, perhaps GoCo isn't the best place to have training served up on a silver platter.

    Pros

    The people here are really driven by their passion to bring a rewarding experience to businesses all over the country. As it stands, the service is solid and the business model is extremely well thought out. But on top of that, I have never worked with a group of software engineers so eager and willing to speak directly with clients, listen to what additional things they might need, and then get to work on making it happen. You just don't find that in your standard tech company. I've been with GoCo for over a year now and wouldn't be able to sell the service if I didn't believe in it wholeheartedly. They're onto something brilliant here.

    Cons

    We could probably use a bigger office space.

    Fun place to work. Everyone here is focused on an important mission, and works hard and plays hard.

    Sometimes the magic snack rack doesn't order new snacks in time.

    Pros

    Open environment where everyone has a voice. Forward thinking, energetic leadership. Coworkers are brilliantly awesome. Typical fun startup atmosphere including: ping pong table, shuffleboard, hover boards, the works!

    Aside from the employees and atmosphere- our product is second to none. The engineers have built something great and I'm excited to see the product and the company evolve.

    Cons

    Gluten free snacks.

    That's about it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.
