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

    Pros

    Career: I've work for startups in the past where you have the ability to grow your career by wearing multiple hats at the company. This usually includes building web components, building services for the web to consume, then maybe some devops work to maintain the infrastructure to run in. At Porch, I've had the opportunity to 10x that by working in almost every part of the company. As long as you're engaged you will...

    I have been working at Porch full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Incredible opportunity to learn and advance - Able to work on cutting edge tech - Quality and functional agile development process - The engineering team and culture is top notch

    Cons

    - Opportunity and advancement can vary wildly based on what team you are placed on - Some technical teams can be bottlenecks and resistant to change

    Advice to Management

    Insurance and 401k options could be better.

    I have been working at Porch full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    My favs: - I currently possess the most engineering freedom I have had in a while. My work is engaging and fulfilling. - Time off is very flexible. Other things that I like: - Porch's "No Jerks, No Egos" policy seems to creates a more positive environment than my previous employers. - They organize internal professional development workshops both for technical topics and personal improvement.

    Cons

    - The office space is the stereotypical tech open floor plan where we all wish we had a little bit more space. - The office space is often a little noisy for my taste.

    Advice to Management

    No advice really. I think Porch has great management for engineering. I can't really comment on the others branches of management since I don't interact with them.

    I have been working at Porch full-time

    Pros

    * As far as industry jobs are concerned this is the best I've ever had. * Many of my coworkers have come here from MS or Amazon and most of them tell me they prefer Porch's work atmosphere --and those that go back, only do so because they were offered a ridiculous amount of money. * Porch's compensation is comparable to others in the area when you take into account the stock option grants --if you're only looking at...

    Cons

    * With our experimental tech culture, sometimes we make poor engineering decisions that cost us in time and effort to rebuild. But I feel the benefits outweigh the risks by far. * We had been under a hiring freeze for the last year, which means we've lost a lot of good developers, many of whom were those that made our workforce diverse. This has unintentionally distilled us down to a less diverse workforce. --management...

    Advice to Management

    * Keep working toward hiring a diverse workforce. Hosting a recent women in tech conference was definitely a great step in the right direction! * We should look at having an internship program again. It's great to ask the senior devs to mentor more, but when everybody on your team is senior, who do we mentor?
