We handle projects that are at the pinnacle of technological advancement, and the dedication to quality ensures that our end-users experience the best of what we offer. Talent Density: One undeniable advantage of working at Pie is the privilege of collaborating with some of the industry's brightest minds. The recruitment standards are lofty, and it's evident in the quality of discussions, brainstorming sessions, and the solutions we produce collectively. Open Communication: Pie's commitment to transparent dialogue is unparalleled. The leadership is not just approachable but actively encourages feedback, engendering trust throughout the company. Through regular town halls, feedback sessions, and open slack channels, every opinion is valued, and there's a tangible drive to act on the insights gathered. Remote-Friendly Culture: A standout benefit is the company's progressive stance on remote work. Pie understands the importance of work-life balance and flexibility. This remote-friendly approach not only enhances productivity but also contributes to employee well-being.

remote work and benefits are good.
Micro management. Lack of growth opportunities. Working on short staffed team.

Fully remote, great health insurance
Job security has been non-existent since the recent layoffs. Teams were gutted and key managers axed. Those that were left have been putting out fires nearly daily. Operations are very disorganized and there are frequent breakdowns of key functions. Most teams are simply understaffed and are operating in some cases with only half of the headcount they had prior. Workloads have increased despite promises to “take a step back”. There is no incentive for hard work. Semi-annual reviews are pageantry since the maximum raise is 3%! Which is no where close to keeping pace with inflation, led alone “fair market adjustments” that HR loves to tout. There are also no real advancement opportunities in several departments, leaving many employees stuck in dead end positions. Most internal roles are posted with someone in mind or filled by an external candidate. Very difficult to change departments. Promotions are used as carrots on sticks by management. Generous PTO?! 20 days sounds good on paper, but good luck getting a request approved when only one team member can be off on a given day. Want to see your family this holiday season? Shucks, looks like your coworker already requested those days off, better luck next year! Autonomy has been replaced by micromanagement as upper management leans on middle management to squeeze every ounce of productivity out of the Pioneers at the bottom. Constant pinging in slack across multiple channels throughout the day. No room in budget for incentives or morale boosting activities.17Pie Insurance Response2mo

Rapid change can be hard. In the short term, long hours. Expect high turnover as C# folks leave and are replaced by typescript devs.

Great benefits, competitive pay, many competent people leaders, and a remote-first work culture.
Poor work-life balance, lack of transparency sometimes.

Good product. Customers are good to work with.
Declining culture post RIF. Management heavy. Lower level employees work more hours than managers. Work life balance bad if you aren't a people manager.15Pie Insurance Response2mo

- The product itself is interesting and fun to work on - Entry to mid level peers are hard working
- Awful raises, likely due to poor company performance. - Upper management over assigns work and sends late night slacks too often. - Morale is low at the "grunt" level14Pie Insurance Response3mo

Company has good employee empathy.
Product and Engineering organization is a support org for the business org and is expected to deliver features as directed by them without understanding goals. Because of this and top-down culture, the Product organization had lots of changes with many people leaving.5

When I started at Pie, I was astonished at how amazing this company was…from leadership to ideology. I felt empowered and lucky to be part of such a company.
In late 2022, there was a shift which flowed into 2023. Leadership changes, increased workload, no real opportunity for advancement (just promises of it which never come to fruition), constantly shifting priorities, lack of staff, layoffs, more and more upset customers, customers closing accounts…it was a lot. There wasn’t a time when we felt as if we could catch a break. The stress and pressure was just overwhelming. I’m not 100% sure what caused the dynamic change in late 2022, but my heart breaks for the Pie that once was.11Pie Insurance Response4mo

The organization sticks to its values for the most part. Pie is more transparent then most corporate cultures. The pay and benefits are above average and on the level of silicon valley startups.
The company priorities are over the places. There seem to be an reorganization every 6 to 12 months. The co-founders not being tech savvy leads to technology being outsourced to rotating group of leaders. The current technology are more MBA types and not engineers so lots of buzz words which you know they never personally implemented.10Pie Insurance Response6mo
