    Pros

    This company really goes above and beyond to show their appreciation for their employees! From cash bonuses, to trips, to video games to break up the daily grind and keep morale up, to company parties/team outings. You'll work your tail off, but the reward is worth it!

    Cons

    It can be mentally draining at times, but you just have to push through. Keeping a strong state of mind can be a daunting task at times, but if you can take the abuse of the contractors with a grain of salt, the company takes care of you.

    Pros

    There are so many positive things about HomeAdvisor. Not only is this a positive and fun place to be, but they compensate you very well for your hard work and effort. Every team is so unique, and is honestly more like a family. Everyone on the team and even other teams are always there anytime someone needs anything. The management is amazing. They are available anytime you need them, and are always there to help when you need them. They are invested and devoted to help you succeed. We have fun games and competitions to keep everyone on their toes. It is an amazing place to work.

    Cons

    Since I have been here, I can honestly say that I don't have one negative thing to say about HomeAdvisor.

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

    Pros

    I have worked for this company for almost 2yrs now. We started out in a warehouse and now have a big office space. I have witnessed so many positive changes to this company in my time here and it is great to be apart of it. Our location has grown tremendously in the year we have been at this office and its great to witness all the growth and opportunities that come with it. I have worked at many call centers in my time and I would have to say this is by far the best job I have ever had. The management team all the way from the top of the chain to the bottom are always there. This company makes you feel like you actually have a home and that you aren't just another seat filler. They want to see you succeed.

    Cons

    Way to many pros to outweigh any cons.

    Advice to Management

    My advise would be to step back from the "group" they have created. I have heard plenty of times that employees on the floor are a bit intimidated to pursue a management position because of the clique they have created. It is very important for management to have a bond with the whole management team, but I think the managers at this office take that a bit to far.

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

    Pros

    This is the first time I have seen such a great company atmosphere. The team work crosses all departments, including upper management. They have a very competitive compensation package which includes 401K and benefits. If you are looking for a company you can grow with and advance in, HomeAdvisor is it!

    Cons

    This company is stats driven. This may be an issue if you are not used to it.

    Advice to Management

    More workshops and forums to integrate changes and company advancements would be great. This would give workers advanced notice and streamline implementation.
