    I have been working at Kabbage full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Free Food
    - Beer on Tap
    -Yoga
    -All of the tools needed to do my job
    -Friendly atmosphere
    - Free Parking in Atlanta
    - Management that Cares

    The work life balance is amazing. I have always gotten time off for any length of time and my management is always extremely understanding.

    Cons

    - The nerf guns can get annoying sometimes
    - Gain weight from all the chocolate

    In all seriousness, we work hard, VERY hard, but I willingly do this because I know the people around me care. Don't get me wrong, there is the occasional slump but 99% of the time, I don't notice the extra hours put into work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you guys do. Been here for nearly 3 years and am not looking to leave any time soon.

    Pros

    Too many to list. This company lives its values. They really care deeply, it’s obvious in everything they do for us!

    Cons

    The FREE catered food isn’t always the best. We only have to work Monday-Friday :)

    There is nothing else to include but this field has a 20 word minimum requirement.

    Pros

    Love working with the people here. They really make coming to work fun. I've been here for several years and have really enjoyed being a part of growing a company like Kabbage. We work really hard here, but the environment makes it feel less like work. The environment is really collaborative, and people get to contribute their pieces to the larger Kabbage puzzle. Plus, I can bring my dog with me-- who doesn't love that?!

    Cons

    Honestly, I can't think of any

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Focus on your people and you will continue to soar.

    Pros

    Kabbage is a fast paced environment, fully engaged teams and very sharp, creative minds.

    Cons

    I've worked remotely in the past, this is not a negative but the nature of the work requires collaboration and interacting with many teams and this is best done in person in the office.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to maintain transparency and true to core values

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Kabbage full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pros food, culture are actually facades behind clever efforts to extract the most out of every human "machine " they hire

    Cons

    Poor and immature leadership. SoftBank invested only on potential reality will play out soon when they actually see the returns.

    Advice to Management

    None

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

    Pros

    1 Year in Kabbage Time = 3-4 Years of Experiences at Most Places

    Kabbage is an incredibly fast and dynamic company that rewards smart (and hard) workers for quality results. Though a non-tech employee doesn't often "move up" vertically in the traditional sense, it doesn't matter since the company is still fairly small and flat. Instead, managers encourage leads to expand horizontally and launch new initiatives within their teams and cross functional peer groups. Innovation occurs side-to-side, bottom-up and top-down.

    A Kabbage employee determines their own fate. Management rewards hard and smart working individuals with responsibilities, opportunities and professional development far beyond comparable peer groups.

    Leaders and proactive thinkers = A happy employee with tons of growth
    Act like a child = Managed like a child
    Not a team player = Need not apply

    Standard Tech Company Pros Include:

    -Free Lunch and Snacks
    -Beer/ Wine
    -Bootcamp/ Yoga/ Meditation
    -Pool and Ping-Pong
    -Dogs and Beanbags (if you're into that)
    -Standing Desks
    -Free Parking or a MARTA Pass
    -Community Service Opportunities
    -Flexible Hours
    -Unlimited PTO Policy

    Professional Pros:

    -Latitude and access to the tools/ resources/ software needed to get the job done
    -Transparent management
    -Professional exposure where it counts
    -Great ATL ties
    -Great people that want to make a difference, personally and professionally

    Cons

    -Kabbage is great and employees are teated well, but we could improve Rob’s sausage bar (a Friday lunch specialty).

    -Fair warning, the Kabbage 10 is real. Beware of free snacks.

    -Expect growing pains. This is a rapidly expanding company in an old industry that is reinventing itself.

    -There's no 401K match, but I expect that to change soon

    Advice to Management

    Let's keep creating "Holy S**T Moments" for our customers.

    I have been working at Kabbage full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Kabbage is fast paced and continually challenges you to give your best. With the innovative and hard work comes great amenities and benefits that include our outstanding sabbatical program, flexible time off, catered lunches and more.

    Cons

    With innovation and rapid growth comes shifting priorities. It takes a specific type of person to be able to navigate the distractions that can come with change and the amenities offered.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on our customers and our team as top priorities.
