    I worked at Social Tables full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Solid SaaS business on the path to profitability. Growing ARR, negative churn. Great business serving SMBs and expanding more to the Enterprise
    - Leadership. The VPs are hardworking yet approachable. Dan, the CEO, is passionate and has a motor like no one I've ever seen
    - Great transparency. Every month you learn the ins and outs of the company's financials and KPIs. Good and bad, everything is shared and discussed
    - Dope events. Weekly Happy Hours, Annual Awards Show, Holiday Party at great locations.
    - Sweet Office
    - Opportunities to learn and grow

    Cons

    - It's not an easy job. The CEO will push you, that's part of his job. It can be tough but you'll do some of your best work here if you put in the effort
    - Autonomy is hard to come by. You have to push for it and earn it.

    Advice to Management

    Discuss Lessons Learned more. Own up to mistakes you make and share with the company what you have learned from that mistake and how you may correct it.

    I worked at Social Tables full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Social Tables provides an excellent opportunity for any motivated and dedicated professional to learn and grow rapidly! Being a small and growing company, you have the chance to directly impact growth. Upper management is always nearby, so it's not hard to ask challenging questions and seek advice. Each month, the company takes an hour to present all of the financials and KPIs, as well as to recognize peers' successes. The environment is friendly, energetic, and innovative. Every work anniversary you celebrate there comes with a celebration and unique gift! The CEO is constantly giving industry talks and is on top of Thought Leadership. It's valuable and inspiring to have a leader who goes above and beyond.

    Cons

    It's a fast-paced environment. Change is constant when a company is young and growing - only work here if that's something you can handle and enjoy! It's a niche industry and definitely helps to have familiarity with the hospitality world. Although there is opportunity to grow, you may have to wait for promotions and raises.

    Advice to Management

    Some people prefer structure, others like to figure things out on their own. Try to hire and retain those with a true entrepreneurial spirit that are ready to figure things out and be molded into something new.

    Pros

    Modern office
    Good coworkers

    This is a 2.5 star company that I'm giving 1 star because new employees are pressured to give inflated reviews

    Cons

    Noticeable discrimination in hiring and promotion
    Zero accountability for leadership team
    Culture of fear about speaking up

    Pros

    Fun company, good attempt to be Googley. CEO actively can't pronounce name

    Cons

    Pronunciation isn't a strong skillset. No 401k. Health benefits are weak. Small addressable market

    I worked at Social Tables full-time

    Pros

    free food sometimes, cool office space

    Cons

    Honestly, one of the worst workplace environments I have ever been in. Completely unprofessional. Management is awful and everyone looks at the CEO as Michael Scott. There is zero diversity and a fake progressive atmosphere.

    I worked at Social Tables full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great office space. Staff is nice (you most likely have to be outgoing and be the first to create a conversation to make acquaintances )

    Cons

    - A lot of micromanagement. From management to CEO in most of departments
    - Not a lot of place for growth

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees, give them better recognition, and not by just giving them a monthly frame.

    I worked at Social Tables full-time

    Pros

    Great office space and an excellent start-up environment. Wonderful CEO who is nice and personable.

    Cons

    Management below the CEO is toxic. Often lacks leadership and any direction. The software has lots of bugs and has problems that an org this size should not have. If you were popular in Middle School, you would like this company. Also, much of the staff is grotesquely underpaid.

    Pros

    Really cool office space and great coworkers! The work is fast-paced and challenging but you are surrounded by people who are genuinely excited to be working at the company. Hours can get long but management is understanding and flexible with schedules. There are lots of extra events for employees to socialize.

    Cons

    Leadership is not very diverse.

    Pros

    A company that doesn't only talk the talk but also walks the walk. Many startups try to position themselves as places for employee development and a great environment but Social Tables is those things.

    A new HR director is giving new life to many of the programs that made me join in the first place. That makes me really excited to see what will happen this year.

    Cons

    Nothing major comes to mind at this time.
