    Cons

    1 - Hasn't had internal streamlined processes which can burn people out/cause frustrations. 2 - Lots of internal change. As with any growing company there is continuing change in all areas of the business as it looks to scale and optimize. This last 2 years there has been a lot of reorganization, org structure, territories changes, etc. 3 - Just building out the People function of the business which has... been lacking

    Pros

    SmartRecruiters is a PaaS company that is changing the face of the hiring industry. One of the biggest benefits of working here is that you can get in on the ground floor and be a part of explosive growth. It's got a cool tech vibe with a gorgeous warehouse style office, great snacks, catered lunches 3 days a week, solid benefits and a clear vision of where they're going. They take a lot of effort to foster... an environment where employees are accessible to each other. For example, the lunches are served in a huge kitchen with one big long family style table, which allows you to interact with other departments and learn more about what's going on in the company. This may seem like a small unsung hero, but I love how there's a cleaning crew and office manager to handle daily housekeeping. From stocking pantries to cleaning dishes and even desks, it's one of those things that goes unnoticed, but you have no idea how nice it is to not work in a cluttered dirty environment, like most start ups who choose to have the employees do it and then you wind up with dishes in the sink for days. Anyone's who's had roommates can appreciate that. The other positive is the accessibility of management. Yes they are insanely busy, but the structure is made up so that you can reach out to anyone and share your ideas and feedback, which is always welcome. It's important to note that this is an excellent career choice for those that are smart, inventive and humble. You cannot be afraid of feedback. If you're looking for someone to hold your hand through every task and blindly accept your ideas, you're doing yourself a disservice. Management is there to direct you based on their overwhelming experience that has led them to be so successful. Feedback is a good thing and it's important to remember that they want you to succeed, so they will challenge you to do your best and help you where you need it.

    Cons

    It's not for everybody. As a small, but fast growing company, you really need to take ownership of your role and bring the inspiring ideas that can change a company. While I've come into this role at a turning point in the company, it seems that the biggest challenge in the past has been hiring junior people who did good work, but didn't have the experience to be able to take the company to the next level. I... echo the thoughts of recent reviewers that the reviews of the past should be taken with a grain of salt. Management has made an effort to change and it's important to recognize that things have changed and will continue to do so as the company grows. Yes you will work long hours, but you will never be bored.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to foster an environment of transparency, tangible feedback and a clear vision. Continue to focus on hiring more of the best and brightest minds in the industry to support our explosive growth.
