      A special place to work

      Pros

      The people are what draw you in and ultimately keep you here- it really is like a family. HR is responsive and incredibly supportive during hiring cycles or tough employee situations. My managers have been competent leaders that I've learned from and developed great friendships with as well. It is a place where if you put in the work you can really grow. It's unusual for a company in this industry to have employees here for 8,9, even 10+ years but that feels commonplace here. Great benefits and comparable pay. Affordable healthcare. Company trips. Fair hours and there is very rarely a need for weekend work.

      Cons

      Very few women in exec, promotion cycles and requirements can be strict at times, some processes and communication could be improved when working cross departmentally.

      Growing, But Disorganized

      Apr 14, 2021 - Director in New York, NY
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Good Pay - Flexible hours, so it's easy to handle life stuff (like doctor's appointments) - Challenging work, but fun - Great team of collaborative people

      Cons

      - HR team is inexperienced and lack the "human" touch that human resources need. - It takes them a long time to address interpersonal issues. - Pandemic life has made the hours a little blurry, and our team is feeling burned out. - There's a lot of work going on at once, so it can be hard to focus and prioritize tasks.

      Pros

      benefits are ok people can be nice at times

      Cons

      dont waste your time here. way better companies out there. they will treat you as if your time doesnt matter. everyone is leaving. get out asap. its a sinking ship. politics and favoritism take over. no HR or leaders. its a toxic place to work. everyone expects you to work on days off. HR will send out emails about taking off yet your managers will send you work on days your not working. terrible company managed by terrible leadership. dont even try to voice your opinion, they dont listen. great employees have all been leaving and will continue to.

      Toxic workspace

      May 10, 2021 - Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Really can't think of any pros except the pay is good. Well, money can't buy happiness as they say, obviously didn't fully understand this until joining Kargo. Leaving here has been the best career decision ever made.

      Cons

      Work hours are ridiculously long, sometimes have to work even on weekends. Zero work-life balance and flexibility. Multiple overlapping tasks resulting in poor quality and performance. Understaffed in some teams so everyone is burned out all the time. Micromanagers. Managers will let you know without hiding who he/she favors more as an employee. Overall just a very toxic workspace.

      Lots of politics

      Mar 16, 2021 - Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good benefits, product offering, work-life balance

      Cons

      As said in many other reviews, the politics and favoritism here are unreal. It's really difficult coming in as an outsider and trying to fit in with a group of people who have been here for a long time. Many aren't welcoming or receptive to new ideas/change. People who have been here the longest are treated the best causing others trying to grow to feel stagnant or taking a step back in their careers.
