    Pros

    Benefits are incredible and unique. "Be reasonable" vacation policy is part of the culture, and you should use it.
    Ambitious, smart, fun loving, transparent people make up the executive team and workforce.
    Management empowers people to be their best through lots of amenities, trust and challenges.
    Executive team is transparent and forward thinking. Town halls filled with meaningful information are held every week.
    Engineering management believes in using latest technology to power the future of the company.

    Cons

    Currently going through growing pains as the company experiences rapid growth.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid giving in to typical political battles experienced in bigger companies. Everyone in the building was hired for a reason, and we should focus on bringing them together to create something even more amazing than we already have. Keep the startup culture alive by working hard to keep the lights on, but understand the future relies on the success of experimentation.

    Try your best to keep the talent you nurtured. Brain drain should be unacceptable at such an ambitious, lucrative company.

    Pros

    Work hard. Play hard. Catching on with this company is one of the greatest things to happen to me. Free food, massage chairs, ping pong tables, video games. They have created an environment in which I don't just tolerate where I work, I ENJOY where I work. Most importantly, they give you ALL the tools you need to succeed, and will do whatever it takes to show that you are valued and cared for.

    Cons

    I just have to be careful not to lose focus on my work with all of the fun things to do around, and not to gain more weight with the bottomless soft drinks, snacks, and ice cream around here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being awesome!

    Pros

    Company is putting the foot on the accelerator and reorganization means people are finding new responsibilities.

    Cons

    Competition can sometimes lead to different teams throwing each other under the bus.

    Pros

    Kabbage provides fulfilling work in an incredible environment. Some of the highlights: dogs, free beer, great healthcare (including medical, dental, and vision), parking/transportation benefits, actively engaged coworkers who are happy to be at Kabbage too, catered lunches daily, competitive compensation, open and transparent communication from the founders and throughout the entire organization, incredible orientation and training programs, and an entire work environment that truly treats you like a whole person. If you really want to have the best job of your life and ruin yourself for all future employers, Kabbage is the place to apply.

    Cons

    I haven't encountered any so far!

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing the damn thing. :)

    Pros

    I really love the culture here, people are hard working and super open and friendly. Highly recommended for young and energetic talents to join.

    Cons

    Company business strategy needs some break point to get things going right direction. CEO and leaders should figure out ways to recruit the "best" and "right" leaders (with extra abilities and fits the current need of company) to make the break-though.

    I have been working at Kabbage full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I've been with Kabbage for 5 years now and I can honestly say that I still love this place as much as I did when I started.

    Cons

    I'd say the only con is that not enough people bring their dogs in the office (and there is a cap).

    Advice to Management

    Keep living our values like you do!

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

    Pros

    I've worked for, or on behalf of, multiple of tech companies and the executive team at Kabbage sets the bar for how leadership should lead. From truly caring about their employees, being honest and transparent about the company, being gracious with their time and trusting the team around them. You'll want to get beers with them.

    Cons

    The internal cabbage and farming puns can be outstandingly bad (good?). For example, our interns are called Brussels sprouts [slaps forehead] :)

    I have been with the company for almost 2 years and I'm still in awe of what I great company I work for. The culture is amazing, the people, the care that we have for the community, and customer. It's the best company I have ever work for. I wish I work here sooner.

    Filled with super smart driven and passionate folks.
