    I worked at MyVest full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Company is doing very good now. It is now backed up by TIAA, who are one of the biggest fin tech guys in the market.
    - Good and talented people around (On a lighter note, they have a big factory of UC Berkley's and USC's) and you can learn enough from them.
    - Friendly management (CEO, VP, Director and higher management are easily approachable).
    - I like the employment development budget (1500$) which they give to you to learn any course / buy any books.

    Cons

    No big cons but testing methodologies and QA processes should be lot improved.

    Advice to Management

    Merger with TIAA is a great thing, keep going !!

    Pros

    Good teamwork with a fully diverse engineering teams
    balanced work life focus
    healthy snacks, good location for lunch
    willingness to listen
    Strong future prospects, customers are literally throwing more work at us than we can do

    Cons

    More work than we can hire for
    Need to push fellow engineers to write more unit test code
    Too many easy bugs found in test, need more consistent coding standards and reviews

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing agile methodology, not process.
    Trust your teams more,

    Pros

    I absolutely love working for MyVest! I came from a large financial institution, so for me there are a lot of positives to working for a small innovative company:

    - The culture of respect comes from the top, from our CEO. I've never worked with another senior leader who is so respectful and open to hearing differing opinions. Plus, he's down to earth and just fun to be around.

    - Good people in general - smart, friendly colleagues. Not a lot of ego here, which is rare.

    - There's a ton of growth potential - for the company itself and in terms of career opportunities. (But it's a responsible growth, not a goal to get as big as we can as fast as we can so senior management can cash out and buy private islands.)

    - It's a very collaborative environment, yet I'm allowed to be autonomous in my daily work, which is fantastic.

    - True sales & marketing alignment, which is a rarity. It's a small team, and we're all working toward the same goal.

    - Well-stocked kitchen with healthy snacks and drinks - always a plus. (But that doesn't mean you're trapped in the office all day and expected not to leave. It's a super flexible environment.)

    - True work/life balance. When I left large corporate life my colleagues thought I would be working 16 hour days. In reality, I work the same regular schedule but I'm massively more productive since there aren't layers of hierarchy in my way.

    - For me what sums up the awesomeness of this company is that I got a year-end bonus after working here for just the last two weeks of 2015. Yes, it was a small amount (enough for a nice dinner out though), but the fact that I got one at all meant the world to me. It made me feel appreciated and included and respected.

    Cons

    I'm used to more digital, user-friendly employee systems for things like payroll, PTO, expenses, benefits, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the culture of respect and transparency, it's awesome! I hope to keep moving the social aspects of our culture forward as we grow.

    Pros

    Solid Sr. Management who really does care for their employees.

    Cons

    Only a hand full of clients. As a result they need to secure new clients in order to grow their technology and revenue.

    Advice to Management

    keep up the good work.

    Pros

    - Company is doing very well.
    - They give you money to use towards education and push you to achieve your goals.
    - Smaller, tight knit teams that ensure growth of coding ability
    - There is a massive push to revamp our old pages to use new technologies such as Angular, d3, kendo. if you like these technologies, there is great potential for you here.
    - They recently upgraded our machines and they spared no expense here. You can use windows/mac/linux to code.
    - we have a game room and ping pong tournaments frequently.
    - snacks!

    Cons

    - In some cases, there is a disconnect between upper management and engineers

    Advice to Management

    The technology push was great. Try to find other low hanging fruit to make your engineers happy.
