      Pros

      Based off of the GrubHub subreddit, this appears to be dependent on where you live/what your market is like - but mine has BEEN prime, my entire time with this company. Have been contacting with them for about a year and a half now, and really, it comes down to you putting the time in. You truly do have to be diligent if you want to succeed as your own boss. If you can manage that, though, you: • Can easily make $20+/hr (again, market dependent! DYOR on your city's GrubHub stats before quitting an actual job to be a freelance courier!) • No longer submit to a boss, other than the one you are ;) • Occasionally get free food (Red Robin, for example, gives drivers an order of fries for free • Make a full-time, liveable (+?) wage while simply driving around all day, listening to your favorite music, or finding new music/podcasts that you love!

      Cons

      A lot of these are going to sound like cons/risks to most people, but it should be noted first of all, that: • This and the other courier app/independent gig work apps are definitely not meant for everyone • Tax time as a legally self employed individual (/business owner! Yes! You now legally, when it comes to how the IRS views you, are a business owner) really sucks! Only way to ever see a tax return while doing this, is (similarly to having a real job, as well as being how you are supposed to do taxes anyways now) to over estimate what you owe, and pay too much in your quarterly SE taxes. Although you can write off a LOT, including your cellphone and plan, all meals you purchase and eat while working, your gas mileage, and so much more, you still really are never going to see any return, unless you do the quarterly and overpay. However: I have, both tax seasons, prepared and paid my annual tax instead of the recommended quarterly, and have only had to pay a few hundred dollars. So, could be worse :) for example! - • Depreciating the resale value (or driveability, depending on it's starting condition) of your car daily, at approximately 10x the rate if you had a non-driving employment. Regarding this - • Not nearly as profitable if you have a non-gas-efficient car, much less a truck! I contacted with DoorDash for a while, driving a Ford Explorer, and it was almost a challenge keeping gas in the tank on rough days/week long+ slower periods. • In over two years of doing various courier jobs full time, I have gone thru two cars, third one is doing alright now tho. The cars were under $1000, though, and i can't attribute their deaths 100% to the streets, as ignorant negligence on my part is partially to blame for one of them also. • Easy to become lazy/unmotivated with no actual boss to make you work, but again, this comes down to you and your self-discipline. I struggled with this at the beginning, but have since overcome it • Gas prices have been amazing since I started, but if they go back up to $4.xx or so, that will change my entire opinion on this kind of work

      Inside Sales Rep (Outbound)

      Mar 5, 2020 - Inside Sales Representative in Chicago, IL
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Earning potential, benefits (a bit expensive for healthcare), $120 monthly food allowance, healthy balance of free food options, libations if that’s your thing, cool raffles, philanthropic efforts, frequent company town hall meetings & emails to keep staff abreast to company flow, 4 PM Friday exits & no weekends.

      Cons

      Some unethical (imo) & contradictory business practices have been implemented to increase venue, partnerships (business owners aren’t thrilled by such practices that have reported their loss of money & increased risk having their representation tarnished) & investor interest. But dare a rep mirror similar behavior in attempt to secure themselves... twisted logic in leadership from my POV but I digress. Some reactionary, and often times, ineffective management that lack tact & proper leadership qualities or the ability to manage personal feelings or (but that seems to be a trend in many organizations), so I’m sure none of the above is shocking or new when looking at many companies out here. None are perfect and that’s the game we’re subject to playing in their arenas.

      Pros

      Focus on employee development. Good work/life balance. Leadership listens to employees. Free food. Great company culture. Internal promotions. Ability to choose to move to other teams to find the perfect fit. Senior management appears to know what they are doing and try to be transparent.

      Cons

      Perks could be better. Bonus could be monetary instead of just stock.
