    Pros

    Traditional Startup: you lack experience/know-how but are thirsty to learn. Great environment for learning across all departments.

    Cons

    The vision is there but not everyone knows how to get there.

    Like adding a roller coaster ride in your career path

    Pros

    There have been two large layoffs in the past three years of operation. In 2015, Keas was averaging an employee resigning per month. Then there was a layoff after Thanksgiving. With desperate times comes desperate measures, but Keas seems to always be in a state where they continually lack resources to provide quality service and products to their customers... then resorts to cutting jobs. When I was working at Keas, the company functioned in an unstructured manner. There was a desperate need to re-create processes and operationalize in every team. That challenge can be exciting or daunting, depending on who you ask. Thus, Keas is ever changing. A dynamic environment, although stressful, is also a learning environment. Keas is not for everyone. I see the best employees go above and beyond, even if it means working a 50 hour work week. They'd be focused and passionate about their work, unaffected by the sea of their coworkers complaining how much they hate their job. - Easy to make business decisions - Unlimited PTO* - Membership to Equinox gym ($200/month value)

    Cons

    - No monthly/annual performance reviews; raises need to be demanded - Extremely difficult to acheive work-life balance (those working 8 hour days are seen as "taking it easy") - Unlimited PTO comes with the pressure to check emails and work remotely when you're off

    I had fun

    Pros

    In the 3 years I worked here, I met some very smart and talented people. Everyone really seemed passionate about their job. Overall, the work environment was a fun place to be, and while fast paced it was a good place to grow in your career. Awesome Perks: -Free food in kitchen -Unlimited PTO

    Cons

    Management is often changing, so must be willing to adapt fast. Besides higher level leaders (CEOs & VPs), most managers often seem overwhelmed or confused.

    Pros

    Mission to improve employee health, a few smart team members left (though with layoffs not many), good benefits for a startup, great location.

    Cons

    Company goes through layoffs often, inexperienced management scared to make strong leadership decisions. No work life balance. Unhealthy work environment.

    Pros

    Keas is a start-up. Do not go there expecting some magical work-life balance. Go there expecting a bit of chaos, a lot of responsibility, intensity around deadlines, and most of all, expect to be challenged. This isn't for everybody, but anybody who goes to a start-up, any start-up, should have these expectations. The people at Keas were (are) passionate and committed to what they do and what Keas does.

    Cons

    already mentioned... work-life balance can be a challenge.

    I think this is authentic - work-life balance is hard. Especially so when building a high-growth and large business.

    Pros

    Unlimited vacation time (which can't be more than what manager thinks is appropriate).

    Cons

    No work life balance. Poor management decisions. Very high employee turnover.

    CEO

    Bummed to see this on Glassdoor - clearly - Keas is not a good experience for this person and perhaps not a good fit for this person. And while Keas isn't for everyone - if you want to connect offline, happy to do so. I appreciate the feedback to be more open, and take more responsibility for failures - I believe we do that - tho if there are more and better ways to do so I am all ears. One factual edit - employee turnover is actually low (less than 10% over the last 12 months) so curious why its believed to be different to the author - again - happy to review this offline if you like. --Josh Stevens, CEO -- josh.stevens@keas.com

    Pros

    Smartest group I've ever worked with....unusually dedicated....folks really give a *s**t which says something...not just a job...Keasters are ever-improving and ever-evolving the way business gets done as the company continues to grow and add customers....

    Cons

    No place to hide :-) everyone pulls their weight or is voted off the island
