          I have been working at MyFitnessPal full-time

          The work we do impacts millions of users every single day. The office is really nice with lots of snacks and daily lunches. Active office culture with a gym onsite.

          Cons

          Since MyFitnessPal was acquired by Under Armour you'll often need to work across teams and timezones.

          Pros

          The people at MFP are the best folks I've ever worked with. Very smart folks who are passionate about helping people get healthy.

          Cons

          Since the UA acquisition things have slowed down in terms of how quickly things get done.

          Pros

          Culture! MyFitnessPal has a great team culture and really values it's importance. People are very passionate about building awesome products and friendly to work with. There is a great level of fulfillment seeing the difference our work brings to peoples lives. Even though MFP got acquired, the engineering culture still feels pre-acquisition which is a great thing to maintain. Catered lunches are definitely a great perk...

          Cons

          There are really not many things that are worthy of this section. Too many snacks to choose from? :)

          I have been working at MyFitnessPal full-time

          Pros

          * Focus on employee happiness * Has the best stocked kitchen for anyone focusing on diet * Catered free lunches * Treadmill desks * Generous monthly "health" stipend for gym membership, fitness classes, and more * Get to work with highly talented, ego-checked co-workers

          Cons

          * Kitchen so big you need to block time out of your calendar to pick a snack * Need to learn Outlook * A lot of technical debt that continues to build

          Advice to Management

          There's a lot of technical debt. "Simple" processes such as starting a new project can become a very large time sink and cost a lot of resources. The sooner we flush out processes, the easier it will be for the company to grow and handle workload. We need to change our "fix it later" mentality. Let's keep our numbers small, efficiency high, and customers happy. Continue to focus on customer happiness. Their success...

          I have been working at MyFitnessPal full-time for more than 2 years

          Pros

          I've loved working at MyFitnessPal. It's the only place I've ever worked where literally everyone was happy to be there. The company's mission of giving people useful tools to meet their health goals is a noble one, and it's what both draws people in and makes people stay.

          The benefits are excellent, even if some of the unique ones are going away soon (see the Cons section), from the healthy-ish catered lunch...

          Cons

          Under Amour acquired MFP in early 2015, and so far the results have not been promising. UA is imposing a strong revenue directive, which is coming at the cost of user experience, code stability, and work/life balance. They're throwing a lot of future money (RSUs) at senior employees to convince to them stay. For the most part, the benefits are better, but the drastic reduction in the "Be Healthy" reimbursement for...

          Advice to Management

          Listen to the engineering teams' feedback about process and potential improvements. If you aren't hearing feedback, ask for some.
