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

    Pros

    Great place to grow as an engineer. Really strong product process and commitment to quality, and the team is still new enough that there's room to impact the process. Company very supportive of any special needs or requests.

    Cons

    Team will need to grow to meet coming demand in 2016; will be a challenge to keep the great culture and strong process.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being picky with hiring and don't settle just to try and grow the team if we raise. Keep pushing each other to be data driven.

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

    Pros

    Fun and relaxed culture, free food/drinks and a flexible vacation policy. No egos here, which is a very rare thing. Everyone is genuinely invested in making this company great.

    Cons

    Very fast-paced as is the case with most startups. There have been some growing pains simply because of the rate at which the company has been growing over the last few months, but things are definitely stabilizing. Really looking forward to this next year.
