    I have been working at Quartet Health full-time

    Pros

    Incredible people working to address a huge gap in our healthcare system. Employees are connected on a personal level to the larger mission which helps everyone push through the obstacles and barriers that we face. There are tons of opportunity for personal growth as we continue to scale.

    Cons

    Constant change as every growing startup experiences. Scaling from a 10 to 50 to 150 person company is not easy as processes and culture evolve.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the larger mission, hire A+ people and to celebrate the small victories.

    I have been working at Quartet Health full-time

    Pros

    Changes were all the right thing to do even if they happened quickly. I feel like everyone at the company is re-energized and is bringing their best to work each and every day. I'm lucky to have extremely smart teammates. The product and tech organization is bringing great positive energy, super focused on doing good work, and having fun while doing it. It's feeling like the company we all came here to be a part of to...

    Cons

    The changes happening all at once probably set us back a bit but it's a small price to pay in the long game of succeeding.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working to prioritize and resource appropriately. Make the best of the good will and positive "leaning in" mode of the product and tech org at the moment and trust them to tell you what is and isn't possible at any moment. Nothing kills momentum like piling more than a team can handle.

      I worked at Quartet Health full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Really smart colleagues, folks really want to do well by doing good. A lot has changed since I left, by all accounts for the better. Not many companies, or leaders, would boldly embrace the magnitude of change that Quartet has, and truly needed to.

      Cons

      Mission is a little fuzzy vis a vis the business model.

      I have been working at Quartet Health full-time

      Pros

      I work with intelligent and engaging people as my co-workers We're not corporate, you get to be yourself and feel safe My manager is fantastic. He supports me and will step in if I need him to, or he's hands off and just trusts me to get my work done in the office or from home. It doesn't matter where I do it, as long as it's done and i'm happy.

      Cons

      All the change happened at once, but it's for the greater good of the business and our mission.

      Advice to Management

      We have an opportunity to get this right. Keep trusting everyone to do great work, stay outcome focused, have one plan in place and keep it on track.

      Pros

      The mission is the same, but management and the board listened to the frustrations of the team and made changes. They promoted the chief science officer to CEO and promoted a new head of product. The new leaders refocused on goals, strategies, and initiatives. I’m exited for the new direction and focus.

      Cons

      We still try and do to many things at the same time, though at least now the work is shared across the company uniformly

      Advice to Management

      Keep listening, keep the focus clear and direct

      Pros

      * Great mission, and some really smart, dedicated, generous and talented people. * Working for a good cause feels good, even on tough days * Slightly more diverse than other companies (although very few Black employees, and women in leadership seem to get shuffled around a suspicious amount) * Unique employees contribute to a vibrant culture... mental health awareness panels, zumba class, lightning talks, tech meetups,...

      Cons

      Quartet attracts great people, but is not good at retaining them. Burning people out, despite the company having a reasonable amount of money and hiring resources at this point. Bad top-level leadership in product, design and tech. Told most of the design team to leave because of a supposed "lack of positivity", throwing products into chaos while new designers and product managers got up to speed. CTO unable to maintain...

      Advice to Management

      Get back to the roots of your culture: valuing transparency, the ability to speak honestly, and good work. Also keep hiring diverse people (and give them equal pay and opportunities for advancement). Scaling is important -- we want to connect more people to mental healthcare -- but you don't have to sell your soul and turn into a Corporation to get there.

      I have been working at Quartet Health full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      I gave the company two points because my coworkers are awesome and the mission keeps us going. We're helping sick people get care and that is important to me.

      Cons

      Some of the worst gender inequality I've seen. It's brought up sometimes and we're told to talk to "HR," but leadership acts surprised and nothing gets done. As someone else posted, we can't hold onto female leadership and that sucks. The CEO is kind of a monster. He's encouraging one minute and is blaming everyone for failing the next. I don't think he's ever run a company before and I'm not even sure if he's managed...

      Advice to Management

      Actually do something about the culture. It's been like this as long as I've been here and it's not about snacks or lunches. It's about treating each other with respect. If you don't think there's a gender problem, you are part of the problem.

        CEO Horrific culture Leads by fear and intimidation Gender inequality so apparent

        Advice to Management

        I came for the mission as did most of my colleagues. Despite a CEO who simply doesn’t understand the first thing about leadership, this is a great company. He blames everyone but himself, talks poorly about those who have left, and can’t seem to keep a female executive on his team.So many hard working people who want to do great things. I am going to hang in there and hope that all these really smart people figure out...

        Amazing job! I feel the environment is very lax yet people take their work seriously. Micromanaging is not the way and Quartet gets that.
