    I have been working at Namely full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have had a fantastic experience at Namely. If you work hard and communicate with your leaders, you will be heard and valued. The past several months were bumpy as we had massive changes in leadership, structure, and vision. But the company is becoming more solid, and the vision for where we're headed has become clearer by the month. Our CEO is quite forthright, and all the managers I have had have been respectful and supportive. The environment is casual. There is a great variety of people and personalities, and people care about each other here.

    Cons

    Still putting structure and processes in place; the product itself has a long way to go which makes promoting it to clients difficult as a service representative at times; must be highly adaptable to change to work here

    I worked at Namely full-time

    Pros

    Fun work environment and the free food and drinks was a plus

    Cons

    The company has a lack of direction. Sr. Management changes often and service models are changed without fully developing the previous model. The product is significantly behind the industry and I don't believe Namely has the right leadership and finances to catch up. Consistent layoffs to make up for poor financial performance has employees constantly on their toes. There is not a true team environment because employees never feel comfortable or safe so they don't have a commitment to the company.

    I have been working at Namely full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Being at Namely for almost 2 years I can honestly say that is it one of the best companies I have ever worked for. The environment is very comfortable to work in, the people are great/helpful and the WFH policy is very flexible! Also senior leadership does not just see you as just another employee at Namely, they see you as an actual human being.

    Cons

    I honestly can not think of any

    I have been working at Namely full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible PTO, Great Benefits, and Great Snacks! I like that my opinion is valued at Namely and there is endless growth opportunities. If you come in with ideas you can get those ideas implemented and say that you helped improve a startup company.

    Cons

    There is a lot of changes and they happen quickly but this is expected when working for a startup company

    Pros

    This is company allows you to build on your strengths and drive your own career path. You will always be engaged with all teams on projects, new structure development, and client engagement. Most importantly, you will always have a VOICE here, your opinion/thought will always matter and those are then used to create an even better Namely. Here you have the wonderful opportunity everyday to come in and work directly with anyone in a different departments, leadership/Sr. Leadership, if this is what you choose to do. I chose to do this, this is why I personally know that Larry is a wonderful CEO and wants only the best for both clients and employees. The friendly, positive office environment and having the ability to work from home when necessary are other key pros.

    Cons

    Namely has a huge roadmap of development that still currently underway. We strive to make ourselves better everyday. If you wish to come to a place with complete structure with rigid plans- this would not be the company for you.

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

    Pros

    Namely is always experiencing changes as a young company but the current leadership is willing to adapt and drive the company forward. I have had multiple promotions and opportunities at Namely, it is truly a place where hard work is rewarded.

    Cons

    Change can be difficult to deal with, most of the negative reviews I see are from people who I feel struggled to deal with change.
