    Pros

    Awesome company! I was jumping around between different companies prior to finding Renovate America so I knew exactly what I wanted to avoid. I was concerned by some of the glassdoor reviews prior to 2018, but after going in for an in person interview I decided to go with my gut which was telling me to take the opportunity. I'm so glad I made the right choice because now I'm super close with my team & we hangout outside of work at least once a week. Everyone here is extremely supportive, wants to see you succeed & the CEO is integrous, honest & determined to grow the company. This management style is reflected throughout C-level, VP level & Director level management. All very high quality human beings. Many of the senior management personally vouched for me to take on a position I was underqualified for because they believed I had value to bring. Since then I have been working in a new capacity, loving everything about it & have even brought on old coworkers to join the team (who are loving it so far). HIGHLY recommend RA to everyone!

    Cons

    No cons - great work life balance, unlimited PTO, made lots of friends with the awesome ping pong room
