    I have been working at GovPilot full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Intelligent and dedicated CEO, Founders, and Product Development have continued to impress me as I grow with the company.

    Cons

    Some are not happy when roles start to shift, but I consider it necessary to continue to expand our market presence.

    Pros

    Smart and fun people, learning and growing opportunities. The industry it serves is a giant ocean of opportunities and it can grow exponentially to other verticals. During the past 6 months, things have changed for better, especially now that everyone is working remotely. There is more transparency and communication as well as a clearer direction to where it's headed.

    Cons

    The company has gone through a lot of ups and downs, micro-management, prioritization issues, etc, since its inception, like most of startups. People have joined and left and that created a low morale, especially last year. On the flip side that also creates empty spots and opportunities for people to advance in their career. Compensation could be better as well.

    I have been working at GovPilot full-time

    Pros

    To the contrary of previous negative reviews (most likely former employees who couldn't hack it), the best parts about GovPilot are the team collaboration, diversity of the company, and access to the executive team to voice my opinion and inspire change. All the teams sit together, and participate in their respective daily team meeting to discuss progress, any blockers and how to keep moving the ball forward. The company has a lunch lotto every Friday. Random 5 people are selected each week and get to go out to lunch and have the company pick up the expense. Its great for building relationships with members of other teams. There are also quarterly team building events in which the whole company participates (go cart racing, escape rooms, etc.) The executive teams door is always open. They have always listen to my opinions and suggestions regarding product or process, and if it makes sense for the company those suggestions actually get implemented. Very ego-less team to the point that the CTO doesn't even have an office. He sits side by side with his team.

    Cons

    Lime scooters are no longer available to zip around Hoboken.

    I have been working at GovPilot full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There are not many pros to mention. Yes you work with fun talented people, but the culture created by the higher ups makes it impossible to enjoy their talents and personalities.

    Cons

    This place is an absolute nightmare to work at. Chaos, miscommunication, horrible HORRIBLE management, a turnover rate that is unbelievable, no perks to keep you there, racism and sexism, nepotism, egos constantly at battle, no compromise, your voice is not heard unless you are one of the "Rockstars" the CEO talks about who are nothing more than talentless Yes men.

    Dear Former Employee, Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry you had a negative experience at GovPilot. We are always open to constructive feedback and ideas. Our small but growing team is diverse and we take pride in that. We believe it is a strength and we are proud of the hard work and contributions that our team make. As much as we can , we give credit where credit is due to our colleagues in our monthly Town Halls or via email. Additionally, we are excited to roll out an Employee Recognition and Rewards platform that will really take engagement to the next level. Lastly, as management of a growing start-up internal communication is something we are continually striving to improve upon and we encourage staff to raise concerns and make suggestions. Best, GovPilot

    I have been working at GovPilot full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Mostly good people, good location in hoboken

    Cons

    2 work from home days FOR THE YEAR, constant changing of company structure, sometimes the position you apply for is not the position you end up with (example: hired as a business analyst, but forced into being a customer service rep due to structural changes), below market pay, constant putting out of customer fires due to poor product management

    I have been working at GovPilot full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I've been a part of the GovPilot team for almost three years. We work hard and things can sometimes be stressful, but I couldn't ask for a better group of coworkers. We are very diverse, but we all genuinely enjoy one another's company and make an effort to keep in touch outside of the office. It is like having a second family to talk to about the highs and lows of life.

    Cons

    The company could benefit from more employees, but the team is rapidly expanding and soon we won't be spread as thin.

    GovPilot has a great team! We are a tight knit group who work hard and still enjoy lots of fun during the working day. No matter what job role one may have, our suggestions and opinions matter.

    Need more talented individuals to help our comapny grow!
