    I have been working at Lever full-time

    Pros

    This is a company that's proving day by day that you can succeed as a business while also being inclusive, thoughtful, and supportive toward people. Lever is a truly unique place with a brilliant but also humble CEO, committed leaders, top-notch product, and a work environment that balances business and people needs. I feel challenged and stretched everyday. Two thumbs up.

    Cons

    As with many smaller companies, Lever doesn't have all the resources in the world (compared to, say, a Google or Microsoft), so we often have to figure out how to get things done within limited budget, time, and other constraints. Usually I don't mind this though. It really forces us to get more efficient and creative.

    Pros

    A great culture where people care about each other, the product, and Lever's success.
    They listen to employees and truly value employee feedback and take action on it.
    Very inclusive culture and company policies.
    A small engineering team means new engineers can create impact quickly and take on responsibilities.

    Cons

    Lever's employee size is ~250 which means you can't have a personal connection with everyone there.

    Pros

    The people truly are some of the nicest, smartest, and hardest working people I've ever worked with.

    Great product and product market fit. Our customers love using Lever, which makes it great to come to work everyday knowing you're making an impact.

    Opportunity to move up or around is abundant. The company is in growth phase so you really can make the most of it when you are here.

    Lever is willing to take a shot and hire somebody who doesn't have the "typical" background. Helps promote a healthy and diverse population of employees from all backgrounds and experiences.

    Lever doesn't just talk the talk when it comes to candidate experience they are industry leaders so they walk the walk too!

    Great benefits!

    Cons

    It's still a growth phase startup so things change rapidly and that may discourage people. But that is just the name of the (startup) game.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the level of transparency we currently have. It makes everyone feel connected to the success of the company.

    More hands on training of the job function and best practices would be nice. Feels a bit like were all just trying to figure it out on our own.

    Pros

    Lever really cares about professional development. They have a leadership development program dedicated to building strong managers who are focused on building and cultivating inclusive, engaged, and results oriented teams.

    The product is best in class and is primed to disrupt the old, outdated technology that exists today. It's awesome seeing the difference Lever makes for our customers.

    Cons

    There are typical growing pains that startups have. We have the opportunity to talk about the product more and our direction in the market versus being execution focused.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in people!

    Pros

    Lots of career development opportunities, you are able to grow your own career while growing the team and the whole company. One team one dream. Lost of collaboration and process building.

    Cons

    Comp is anecdotally on the lower end.

    Keep the strong focus on the goals and execute, keep the team motivated.

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

    Pros

    - Actual diverse staff in positions of real power, not just insulting tokenism
    - Tons of female mentors who have helped me advance my career
    - Openness to non-traditional moves across departments
    - Everybody is just really good at doing their job and I can count on my coworkers to deliver on whatever they promise

    Cons

    - No 401k match
    - Getting harder to get to know people in different departments as we scale so quickly

    Advice to Management

    401k match should be standard at this stage in our company's growth.
