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

    Pros

    - Good engineering team - Hard work gets recognized quickly - Navigating through COVID-19 really well; which validates resilient business - Supportive management - Acknowledging mistake and moving in the right direction quickly

    Cons

    Recently there were few layoffs; mostly in sales due to COVID-19 related impact. Initially, I was very upset about it. But then looking around, I realized it was a necessary action. It was probably a little harsher but it's very hard to estimate the impact of something like COVID-19; which is a once in a decade event. Company is doing much better than I initially though it would do in these times.

    I have been working at KeepTruckin full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I have been at KT for 7+ months and it has been an amazing experience. KT has seamlessly transitioned to working from home over the past 4 months without skipping a beat. I can't say enough good things about the executive staff and the overall direction of the company.

    Cons

    Is COVID a con? Nothing really to call out unless you don't like hard work.

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

    Pros

    Seasoned engineering leadership team. Hardware and Software solutions. Innovative and kind co-coworkers. Great benefits and culture. Approachable CEO. A lot of career opportunities and the ability to influence teams, products, and the company. Diversity and Inclusion events/discussions almost every week -"Embrace Diversity" is a core value at KT (pretty rare for a tech company).

    Cons

    Typical Mid-level start-up hurdles - moving fast, need more efficient processes. Had to layoff people during COVID, but are re-hiring now and gaining momentum.

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

    Pros

    Truly promising tech, interesting market

    Cons

    You cannot trust upper and middle management, but that's because direction came from the very top. CEO has been driving a racecar drunk, and has whipsawed the entire organization. Likens himself to a hero that has to make "tough decisions early", when in reality, he's overcome by stubbornness and egotism.

    Pros

    Interesting product overall that serves a need

    Cons

    Leadership at KeepTruckin is shady - they say one thing and portray a particular image, but don't actually follow through. I don't feel like my job is safe here because things seem so chaotic internally and since there were already 2 rounds of layoffs. Everyone is scrambling and it's evident. I also worry about diversity - they let go of most diverse employees back in February and March blaming it on COVID but I'm not too sure.

    Pros

    Free Snacks and lunches, unlimited days off.

    Cons

    Management it seems is very lost and has no idea what they are doing. Make poor decisions that keep giving the company a bad name and make it extremely difficult to attain sales. Moving support to people in Pakistan has really hurt us as a company .
