    Pros

    This place has a great vibe - from what I've seen so far, I would call it smart, friendly, and no ego. Everyone has been really welcoming and helpful getting me up to speed.

    Cons

    Boston gets cold during the winter.

    As many have said here, it is a start-up. It moves at a fast pace and is very self directed, be aware if that is really for you.

    Keep it up! Everyone is excited for a big 2018!

    I have been working at Notarize full-time

    Pros

    - Incredibly friendly coworkers
    - A very accepting work environment
    - Great balance of working hard and being laid back
    - A large amount of control of and feedback regarding the product
    - Very satisfying to hear product feedback from actual customers very frequently

    Cons

    - You must be okay with working hard, and for more hours than a more corporate position (not necessarily a con if you enjoy the work)

    I have been working at Notarize full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    1. This is a company that is truly changing an industry. It's literally changing laws and regulations to bring better technology to people and businesses around the country.
    2. Great culture without the overly excessive "rah-rah" cheerleading you find at some other over-hyped tech startups. Just overall nice, smart people who work together on a common goal.
    3. Good diversity across the company - ethnicity, age, backgrounds, etc. Always more we can do, but generally impressed with the people that we have here.
    4. Great location - I love Back Bay!!
    5. Flexible work/life balance. While most people are in the office, you don't need to be at your desk by a certain time. People communicate over Slack and via the wiki.
    6. CEO is great, very down to earth. Management has been fantastic to work with. They like to get out of your way so you can do your best work.
    7. I feel like I can just get s**t done without any bottlenecks. People value your opinion.

    Cons

    1. This is a startup. We're moving super fast, there is little process. You have to go with the flow and be good at organizing a lot of information.
    2. Company does not have good onboarding, but I imagine they'll be improving this soon.
    3. Office is great. but not sexy. We don't have beer fountains and candy walls, but that's OK. There are really more important things. At least there are no cubicles!
    4. Benefits are good but not the best. This is just pure fact we're a startup and I'm confident that as we do better as a business, leadership will invest more in their employees.

    Advice to Management

    1. More could be done to define the culture and our values. Lots of new people joining and don't want to lose our sense of self.
    2. Better onboarding - particularly in how to educate people on the industry and lingo.
    3. Standing desks - I would love these, even if there were a couple around the office for people to share.
    4. Communication - I think there's more we can do to improve communication across both offices and across all teams. I love that we've adopted the wiki and I think we should maintain that as a backbone of our knowledgebase.

    Pros

    The Executive/Leadership team is very down to Earth and approachable. They communicate a clear vision, and allow everyone to go about their own paths to executing it. This has not always been the case in the other Boston Startups I've been a part of, but is a great quality to have as it's allowing culture to grow organically, along with the product itself. Really awesome leaders throughout the company, with none of the typical Startup "mindsets" which is shocking but oh-so-welcomed to find in a startup.

    Cons

    Like most startups you need to be self motivated and disciplined. Wouldn't count this as a con against Notarize though, just general advice for anyone thinking about applying or joining. Haven't found any major Cons here yet! Seriously.

    Advice to Management

    We're excited for the future and looking forward to a big 2018. Don't try and force culture or stress about how it will scale. It's grown so much in the last year alone, and continues to grow with us in such a great way. Also, please continue to avoid hiring jerks!

    Friendly, intelligent staff, your contribution is valued

    It's a start up company, no walls, no carpeting, no ceiling, if that doesn't bother you, you'll be ok

    Advice to Management

    Good management skills

    I have been working at Notarize full-time

    Pros

    - Intelligent, reliable and friendly team
    - Exhilarating culture
    - There is potential for growth within the company
    - Your opinions are truly valued
    - Wonderful management

    Cons

    This is a start-up, meaning things constantly change. Personally, I love that my job keeps me on my toes. However, others might not like that. Other than change, I could not possibly think of another con.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great. Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at Notarize full-time

    Pros

    * great leadership, who really trust their teams to do their best work and execute their ideas without a lot of oversight and micro-managing
    * big opportunity - people both within the company and externally are really excited about what we're building, which makes everyone want to do their best work every day
    * very collaborative, communicative, friendly atmosphere - people enjoy each other's company, and are more inclined to step away from their desks and eat lunch together in the kitchen, vs everyone eating alone at their desks
    * strong emphasis from the top down on hiring a diverse team
    * career opportunities - there's so much to build, so much to do. not a lot of hierarchy or structure yet, which means you have room to really grow & define your career.
    * location! Back Bay is awesome. very accessible, lots of restaurants. Please let's never leave Back Bay.
    * a culture where "fixing things" is a core value. whether it's a product feature, a difficult conversation, or a messy conference room, every day everyone here wants to leave things better then they found them.

    Cons

    * Not a con for me personally, but this is definitely a true, lean startup. at the moment there's no art on the walls, no nap rooms, no doggie parades. The company invests in the people and the product, and that's kind of it, for now.
    * Because the company is still so new there are often processes, procedures, and office infrastructure that hasn't been built yet. You have to be comfortable with a certain amount "Wait, why don't we have [X]?"

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Stay transparent and accessible. As we grow we should think about whether there's more we can offer in terms of benefits - some of the plans are a little pricey.

    Pros

    Doesn't feel like my impression of many other startups - super intelligent, talented and available senior management to guide the teams. Environment where you are expected to take ownership and really participate in growing the company. Very rewarding and not micro-managing at all.

    Cons

    The company is filled with super motivated employees, so if you are looking for a company where you can just "get by" then this wouldn't be the right fit (not a con for everyone, but for some)
