      Pros

      Company's mission is to help people. Make the job seeking experience better for everyone with dedicated people trying to make the mission happen! Great events and parties. Give their employees more than most small companies in the bay area. HR team is helpful and does a lot for the employees. You get to work with many teams not just yours. People are very nice and don't stab people in the back.

      Cons

      Hired a bunch of people who are only focused on what the company is doing for them on a minute by minute basis! Vs. how they can help the company take the next step! Managers don't fire bad employees until after the damage is done! This includes the leadership team. Some call people resources instead of people. Fitting between leadership is way more obvious than they know.

      Pros

      Everyone has different experiences within this company. For me, I've had nothing but good things to say and things only seem to be getting better. -Numerous growth opportunities -Clear company vision and culture strengthened by tangible reinforcements -Monthly all-hand meetings to keep in touch with what major projects are being worked on by other teams -Great mentorship, weekly 1:1 meetings -Management is open to and invites new suggestions and ideas -Invites outside speakers to inspire employees -Great employee interaction - there's no cubicles to section departments off from one another so communication flows smoothly and easily. The company also isn't too big so many employees know each other by name and can work with each other easily -Even ratio of men and women (from top company positions down to the average employee) -"The works" of company perks: free catered lunches (food trucks on Fridays in the summer), flexible work environment, monthly happy hours, fully-stocked kitchen, ping-pong tables, company laser-tagging

      Cons

      May be a little hard to believe, but there's not much I can speak into apart from the need to further build upon the core set of company values that were recently established.

      Pros

      They are a small company with a large scale presence. Great staff. Everyone from upper management down is involved and participates actively on making the Company a better place for their own employees and to appeal to their clients and to all prospective businesses with hiring needs. Focus is on large scale branding of the job aggregation platform that they work on perfecting better daily. Everyone is very intelligent, devoted and willing to help each other. I learned a lot about the recruitment industry and would recommend Simply Hired as a great place to work! I think Simply Hired has a bright future. The company has the feel of growing startup which is a good thing. They are technologically innovative.

      Cons

      I was a remote employee and it felt isolating at times. They only have one core product which they do extremely well but can be limiting and sales cycle can be long sometimes. But if you're disciplined and keep getting demos and fill your pipeline you can be successful.
