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

    Pros

    -Very remote-friendly (I am remote!) company which allows for interesting coworkers all over the world, diverse talent, and flexibility. And all remote employees travel to San Francisco HQ for a week each quarter to be with the team onsite. -Strong core values that are memorable (No BS, Weirdly Passionate, and Always be Caring) & actively practiced in the workplace. I've experienced firsthand my coworkers... showing such care and compassion during tough personal situations. -Passionate, intelligent coworkers who enjoy working together

    -As with most startups, changes are inevitable, but as long as you're adaptable and like a challenge, it's a great place to be!

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Rainforest QA full-time

    Pros

    Rainforest encourages you to be your true self at work every day; they encourage individual creativity, diversity in thinking and promote inclusivity in all discussions. The three values - be weirdly passionate, always be caring, and no BS - are sentiments that are very much alive and embraced by every member of the team.

    Cons

    Although there are bi-annual performance reviews, there isn't always a clear expectation of what is required of you. You have to be proactive in understanding the overarching team goal (which isn't difficult - execs are open/CEO has bi-weekly AMAs), then map your deliverables to those hit those metrics. I find that for those that are used to/thrive in startup environments, this isn't a con, it's a norm. Take... this con as a disclaimer that one must be able to be flexible, self-motivated and determined even in periods of ambiguity.

    Advice to Management

    Be more aggressive with goal setting across all teams. What people love just as much as a fantastic culture, is direction, being challenged, and being held accountable to those challenges.

    I have been working at Rainforest QA for less than a year

    Pros

    I never imagined that I would have so much autonomy, and responsibility as a graduate intern. By having ownership of my projects I was able to take away more more knowledge and practical experience than stereotypical internships. One of the big things that stands out about Rainforest is the focus on work/life balance. I felt engaged in my work whether it was in the office or from home and I never felt guilty... taking time off. The company is true to their values: No B.S. Always Be Caring, and Weirdly Passionate. And as a consequence of that, the people that work here are straightforward, caring, and incredibly fun!

    Cons

    If you are looking for a place with a lot of structure, then this probably isn't the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.
