    I have been working at JUST full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -> Located in SF -> Good health benefits -> Free Snacks

    Cons

    -> Long hours, benefits do not reflect time put into work and projects -> Management not responsive to addressing concerns, sweep issues under the rug when possible -> If you aren't management then you might as well forget about any type of raise or promotion -> Hiring process for new candidates is generally vague with little logic behind selection -> Turn over very high -> No investment into creating career opportunities -> Leadership follows the where ever the wind blows mantra

    I worked at JUST full-time

    Pros

    Learning how not to lead people and what not to do when starting a company

    Cons

    Josh is the worst leader I've ever worked for. They hire the most toxic people, they break building codes, and they lie to investors. This company felt like the most soul-sucking place on earth. They get you to buy into their vegan mission and then treat you like trash and overwork you without appreciation. During my time there, they canned loads of people for no apparent reason. Narcissism and nepotism run rampant. AVOID at all costs.

    I worked at JUST full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Exciting products, intelligent team members you can learn a lot from, getting to work at a company that’s making some cutting-edge technology.

    Cons

    Culture is just broken. I saw a female colleague get zero recognition for an important project.

    I worked at JUST full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Made the best of it by building personal relationships with whoever I could. Was able to contribute on a very high level, however...

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't have a clue. Doesn't understand the technology or their market at all, isn't interested in the platforms, either. Draconian rule by the CTO/CFO who is one of the most clueless and ruthless of them all. It seems he's gunning for a fleeting prospect of an IPO and if that fails, a golden parachute. Good luck with all that.

    I worked at JUST full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The mission is amazing and has true impact. It may take a long time but they are determined.

    Cons

    It is truly amazing how much positive press the CEO receives and how he dupes people. He receives "executive of the year," one day and then is struggling to pay rent and payroll. It is a head shaker for sure.

    I worked at JUST full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Teams, open office space, dogs...lots of great dogs, yummy free lunches, good holiday party, solid, tasty and earth friendly products, benefits, compensation

    Cons

    Work-past-6 culture so lacked work-life balance at times, erratic tantrums by select leadership members, sometimes a culture of fear was present, some managers lacked people management skills, some people were put into roles they had no experience in, nepotism amongst siblings, bias toward persons with disabilities, not fully transparent from C-level execs and down, some execs will not acknowledge you, performance management was remiss, lay offs occurred to employees that were deemed outspoken or risk-aversed, gossip
