        Pros

        -People are generally nice -What remains of Lever’s culture/original team is good, but it is rapidly disappearing post acquisition. Salary/benefits/options trending down if not gone already -Great product -Remote

        Cons

        -Acquired by "Employ" which is like a wannabe FAANG company on an acquisition spree but without the brand recognition -New leadership is AWFUL. They treat Lever like a "woowoo California company" yet Lever is the most profitable of all business units. Companies acquired over a YEAR ago still aren't fully integrated. There are so many half baked plans and empty promises. -Worst People leaders I have ever experienced (referring to Employ's folks). They'll pretend to care about you but really all they care about is numbers, the epitome of "HR works for the company, not you." Culture is like the worst version of The Office, expect a pizza party/chili cook off as a morale booster if they'll even pay for that. Insane levels of incompetence amongst the higher ups. -DEI? Check the list of executives and be disappointed. Maybe you'll get a couple optional seminars thrown your way. -Conducted layoffs at the end of November, giving employees one last day of healthcare coverage and a laughable two weeks severance (this included employees that are disabled or on FMLA). People still aren't completely offboarded two months later. A few weeks prior, executives traveled across the country to visit offices, stayed in 5-star hotels, and used limos to get around. Hmmm.

      Marketing Manager

      What are people’s thoughts on those personality and logic tests some companies made you do as part of the hiring process? I frankly don’t like them. I understand if the test is for people who more technical but for roles leaning more creative or ideas based - I don’t understand how patterns I’m forced to review in a short time tells them I’m worth it to get the Hiring manager round. One asked me 50 ques in 15 min. And they never tell how you did on the tests

      Brand Marketing Strategist

      Anyone have any stories of times where you declined an offer at one company (just because it wasn’t the exact right fit or you got another better offer at that time) and u successfully re-connect? Is that a burned bridge forever? Would they consider you for another job again?
