      Pros

      -The hired.com people are very good -Relatively small team working on widely used product, startup level of learning late into a stable company -Engineering team very friendly -Work-life balance, minimal questions asked -Solid effort to keep social stuff going during pandemic without being pushy about it -Reasonable data-driven leadership

      Cons

      -Chaos from merger, people can get very held up -Vettery was a very in-office culture so communication patterns from a mostly-remote setup have been hard to crystallize -Can be tricky to figure out where company stands with two combined companies owned by a larger company and the swings of a crazy time -Tech debt

      Evolving!

      Pros

      Hired and Vettery recently joined forces. They are bringing the best of both worlds but embracing the Hired brand, product, candidates, etc. Took a bit of a hit during COVID (as most companies did) but there is a brighter horizon ahead. The people are amazing, very committed, collaborative, positive, and fun!

      Cons

      It's still very scrappy and there is a lot of change (good change). They are expanding the product offerings (which is good) but with that comes growing pains. There is not much room to grow on the sales team at the moment but I believe they are working on this.

      Used To Be Great...

      Pros

      There were some great people I got to work with everyday. I made some friends here that I consider some of my closest friends. They also have an unlimited vacation policy - some teams are more encouraging than others of using it though. And they have happy hours and free lunches occasionally, which I think is all HR does.

      Cons

      When I first started at Vettery, it was such a young, fun environment where everyone was excited about what we were building. Fast forward a few years, and any energy and excitement has completely evaporated. The product is an utter joke. Adecco knows they made a mistake and have to climb their way out of this mess but I don't see how that's possible. We overpromise and underdeliver and clients know it. It makes it a hard product to sell and an even harder product to renew year over year. No one in management is qualified so they have no idea what they're doing and change goals and benchmarks every other week.
