    I have been working at RedBrick Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People, management, CEO. Excellent life work balance with 1-2 days WFH ok. Great PTO and holiday plans. No 401k match made up for in salary and company now profitable makes us all very positive.

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of yet.

    Advice to Management

    CEO is approachable and knows employees but should work more to socially promote why he's proud of his company.

    I have been working at RedBrick Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Much better work environment than at my previous job at a wellness organization. Nice office space in downtown Minneapolis, sitting/standing desks, lots of windows, access to skyways and a variety of food options. They have fruit delivered weekly so there are always apples, oranges, and bananas for snacks. Great coworkers, very supportive and friendly. A lot of talented people work here and I am always learning something new from them. Good benefits and competitive pay. Option to work from home part-time. Management supports employees taking care of themselves (i.e. access to wellness programs, on-site meditation room, free yoga classes offered several times a week).

    Cons

    No 401k match yet. Some growing pains of a startup company. Typical challenges of burnout from working in wellness.

    I have been working at RedBrick Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    CEO/CFO and leadership are very open with employees about company successes and financials. Laid back environment, but there still expectations that you get everything done to your schedule. Intelligent, determined, passionate employees really help drive the "Help People Be Healthy" motto.

    Cons

    Communication between teams/areas of company can be a bit of a challenge, but interpersonal communication helps alleviate some of the negative. Best to work through managers and remember to stay diligent on something causing a block.

    Advice to Management

    Promote communication between teams, and keep exceeding expectations at managing. Very oriented group of managers.

    I have been working at RedBrick Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Redbrick Health is a 10 year old start-up company that is making an impression on the wellness industry. It is an agile organization that values employees work/life balance and works to create an open workplace. The CEO knows many of the employees by name and goes out of his way to chat with everyone.

    Cons

    It is somewhat difficult to advance within the company. In the year that I have worked here, there have been 2 rounds of layoffs in which organizations have shrunk in order to meet the budget. The organizations are wide, not deep, meaning many individuals report to just a few managers. This makes it difficult to obtain more responsibilities or advance in your career. When positions do open up, it is highly competitive and you must be already know by the hiring manager to have a chance. This is probably true at any company, it's just that there are few positions available.

    Pros

    Great location right next to light rail. Great people to work with. Gym available to everyone. Trying to be diverse.

    Cons

    Very clicky, like high school. Makes it very hard for good talent to get promoted or move to other departments. Lack of communication and un clear expectations. Training on software changes-all the time.

    Pros

    Casual environment, great location. They offer free food and great work stations. Knowledgeable EEs and great benefits. Salaries are competitive.

    Cons

    No growth potential. Clicky, lots of favoritism. They have no idea how to grow. Thinking too far ahead tanked their functionality. They lie to consumers yet tout transparency.

    Advice to Management

    Get real. Fix the syatem issues. Stop pretending everything is fine. Take. "brickheads are cool" out of your company description. Sounds like your in junior high. Stop encouraging the drama.

    I worked at RedBrick Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some talented people within the organization. Downtown Minneapolis location. Transit reimbursement. Baseline health benefits.

    Cons

    Lack of transparency and imagination. Problematic leadership. Continued product and client service issues. No 401K match. Somewhat routine layoffs. A survivor's island.

    Advice to Management

    Unfortunately, the problem is the management. From the Board through the executive level. Best direction of an overhaul would be top down, rather than the other direction.

    I have been working at RedBrick Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Open downtown loft feel to office and building.
    Great location for places to eat or happy hour.
    Made great connections with some co-workers.
    Flexible schedule.
    Team oriented within your own department.

    Cons

    RedBrick grew too fast for their own good.
    They were very top heavy bringing in upper management to change to focus of the work place.
    In the 3+ years I have been there, they have re-org'ed their account management department 4 times. Can't seem to make up their mind in what they would like to do.
    Overworked- short handed before the large layoff of almost 10% of the company.
    Attempting to lower salaries with new people coming into the company.
    Not too much upper management support do to people having too much on their plate-- they are either traveling, not in the office or not available.
    People overstepped their job positions too many times-- did not always let people do their job, attempted to do it for them at times.
    They have a lot of work to do this year to turn the boat around. Makes me nervous as an employee. Will be seeking a different employer soon.

    Advice to Management

    Words mean nothing- action means everything.
    Care a little more about those people that are giving their life to their work even though they have families and other obligations.
    Get your employees to get off their work computers in the evening so they can have a life outside of work.
    The old building lunch room culture and values that built that company has since been forgotten. When there is no value within the company morals, seems pointless.
