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

    Pros

    Great vacation and sick time plan (please, never change it!) Understanding and compassionate leadership that doesn't create a crazy high-pressure vibe Willing to hear employee feedback Great remote culture with one annual in-person meeting Supportive of employee growth

    Cons

    Health insurance is expensive ($100/month) and not the greatest, would be nice if the full premiums were covered or we had more of a selection

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the chill and respectful culture as we scale.

    I have been working at Litmus full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Litmus is a leader in its industry, so it's great to work for a company where customers view you a must-have partner, specially as an Account Managemener. The Sales org has grown tremendously and the AM team is seeing an exciting period of growth as it's own team. In my past AM experience, I had minimal work-life balance, but Litmus is amazing at encouraging this and management is great at pushing work-life balance. ...

    Cons

    You miss out on the catered lunches and office happy hours if you are remote, but I've managed to do virtual ones with a few folks.

    I have been working at Litmus full-time

    Pros

    I've been at Litmus a year now, coming from a public company, I was a little skeptical, but I am so happy I made the jump to Litmus. The growth I've seen within the company is amazing, we've almost tripled the sales team from when I started, I've also seen multiple promotions to AEs, AMs, etc. Great team environment, culture is awesome, very relaxed but competitive at the same time. Managers are all great, helpful,...

    I have been working at Litmus full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Most teams support 100% remote and the company has learned how to make that work. Slack & Zoom are primary communication tools. Managers evaluate you on your contributions, not by simply being present. You have flexibility to work the hours that work for you and your family. Fantastic vacation policy which is better than "unlimited" in my opinion. The first of the year your account is loaded with 28 days. ...

    Cons

    Most of the company embraces "remote first" but a few teams have opted out. Hasn't directly impacted my work as an engineer, but it is concerning having teams in the organization who don't buy into the remote culture could eventually change it. I really wish I could get together with my coworkers more often. Once or twice a year doesn't seem like enough. However, it is amazing the toll even two weeks a year can...

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

    Pros

    Really no negatives. Best in class product with very smart, caring people to work with. Flexibility to essentially work whenever/wherever you see fit provided you get the job done. Much of the company is remote, but in office employees get lunch daily amongst other perks.

    Cons

    None that I can think of, continue evolving the product and things should continue to be great.

    Advice to Management

    Continually work on making the product better and better so we remain top of class.

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

    Pros

    Company is very relaxed and trusts its hired properly enough to give their employees room to breath. Remote culture allows you to WFH whenever necessary. Amazing benefits, pay is competitive, and free lunch every day. They promote and allow people to make cross department jumps based on their career interests

    Cons

    Communication between departments needs to improve. The company is growing at a very fast clip and there is still work to be done on getting the proper processes in place to make sure it can scale effectively. People are always open to respond to Slack or email, but there is no set up “proper channel” for communication. Communication within my particular department is pretty good though!

    Advice to Management

    Focus on improving communication between departments. Everyone is great at their job, but collaboration is a key to a growing company’s success

    Pros

    - Employees first. Litmus cares about its employees and it shows. Fantastic benefits/perks, strong focus on work-life balance, great company events. - Leader in email testing, well-respected company in the industry. - Healthy, well-managed growth (many companies don't know how to do this) - Autonomy. Litmus trusts its employees and gives the freedom to get our work done in the best way for us to do so. No micromanagement...

    Cons

    - Not really a con, but everyone I work with is passionate about the company as well as what they do. We work with a lot of smart people who genuinely care, so if you're looking to put in minimal effort, this isn't the place for you. - Again, not exactly a con but we genuinely enjoy each other's company, and while we do have company wide events and are well connected on a daily basis, I do wish we could spend more time...

      Pros

      Fast paced, dynamic environment. Everyone is incredibly friendly and really passionate about what they do. Leadership cares about the team and they promote a healthy work/life balance.

      Cons

      There is so much going on that it can feel a bit overwhelming at first but they promote open communication so as long as you are comfortable reaching out and asking questions it is not a problem.

      Advice to Management

      Keep up the great work!
