    Pros

    I have worked here for a while. There has been a focus over the last year on scale and being able to help lots more patients with more services. We are growing up and it means more process but way more impact. The company communications are good and the conversations about my future at the company are better. Management is WAY better than it used to be and my manager cares about me and is open to talking about where I go. The technology is better.

    My favorite part is the other people I get to work with. I feel a little intimidated by how smart all of the people are here.

    Cons

    I’d like to see a 401k match.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going and make sure that all of the departments get what we need for the big uptick we are currently working on

    Pros

    Great Health benefits and free snacks.

    Cons

    They have an open door policy, but when it comes to talk to a manager, he is not interested in listening to your ideas. There is lot of favoritism. Some honest people are doing the job by following the processes, while others are taking short cuts to get good metrics and are the first to be promoted because promotions are based on numbers and not based on your hard work and dedication.

    Advice to Management

    Yes metrics are important but are not always right. Use those metrics to improve processes not to punish your employees. Analyse your people based on their dedication, flexibility and williness to help others. I had a lot of dreams when I came here but I came to the realization that not matters how much dedication I give, I won't be part of the favoritism group. Time to follow my dreams in a new place.

    I have been working at Grand Rounds full-time

    Pros

    I have worked for a bunch of different startups. GR is a place for adults -- which is good/bad depending on your worldview. I like:

    - good, market-based compensation scheme
    - friendly people who are focused on the work and their teams
    - no company hijinx or games
    - an amazing mission that people preach and bring to life with things like patients and docutors coming to our meetings
    - solid and improving leadership (more on this later)
    - unlimited vacation
    - clear and consistent feedback (I have heard this may not be as good on other teams)
    - CEO talks very directly and openly at company meetings and in the coffee room when I see him
    - this is also the best place I have ever seen for women. Period. I just learned that more than half of our leadership and company are women.

    Cons

    - like I saiid, it's for adults. So no keg parties or stairway trysts here. Good for me but it doesn't have that slightly manic drive that some people love.
    - as others have commented, there's a mixed bag on role changes. I have seen a lot of people (including members of exec staff) get promoted all the way up from lower roles but the company still isn't big enough to have great roles for everybody to grow into. I think they could do a better job talking to people about that.
    - it's healthcare, which carries extra responsibilities -- lots of extra process and security here
    - I would like managers to more more consistently encourage vacation across teams

    Advice to Management

    You are doing your best when you tell us what's on your mind. Keep it up and thank you for an amazing mission!

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

    Pros

    Working for a highly innovative, rapidly evolving company is refreshing coming from the clinical setting where nothing ever seems to change. I truly love my job at Grand Rounds. I love working with such brilliant minds who are motivated to improve healthcare for all. Not only do I believe in the work we do every day, it is also a lot of fun!

    Cons

    The down side to an ever-evolving company is that things are always changing, which can become exhausting.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to communicate with the entire team. Stay true to our mission.

    Pros

    Great mission. Lots of smart, focused people who I really enjoyed working with. Nice office. Lots of data to build stuff on top of.

    Cons

    Company was going through an inflection point to get to the next phase of growth. There were times when politics put a damper on things.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on hiring the best and building the best, but not too quickly.
