    Pros

    Felt it was necessary to write a review after coming to enjoy a number of the fantastic new benefits Stay Alfred has recently added including Honest Time Off (basically unlimited time off just named after one of our core values). As it grew out of its startup phase, Stay Alfred had a couple less-than-ideal benefits like their time off policy. Through an anonymous review platform, we were allowed to talk with HR about this policy and how it made it difficult for families, working moms, etc. From the get-go, HR took these concerns seriously (didn't just echo platitudes about appreciating our feedback, etc. ) and kept us updated on the progress they were making in revamping the policy. I was really excited when they finally rolled out our new, fantastic policy and impressed that a company really followed through and implemented changes based on employee feedback.

    Also, the CEO is incredibly honest with employees at every level even when talking about difficult topics (change of direction, layoffs). He admits his own mistakes and has created an environment where everyone can be open and admit mistakes/ pivot quickly. It's honest leadership like I've never really seen before and helps create a fantastic ego-free culture.

    Cons

    Not really anything I can think of...

    Advice to Management

    Systems like TinyPulse are fantastic and I appreciate you guys tackling all the suggestions that come up.

    Pros

    Stay Alfred has an incredible way of working with you to make things better and to figure out what works. You're not stuck in an organization that is stubborn on how things are done. Stay Alfred knows how to evolve and change for the better. It has an amazing positive energy.

    Cons

    If you don't set boundaries or plan ahead you can burn yourself out. It takes a little adjustment but once the kinks are worked out things become easy and smooth.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being open to what staff is reporting back. Things change and to be successful you need to change with it. I think Stay Alfred does exactly this.


  10. "I am almost to my 1 year anniversary with Stay Alfred"

    I have been working at Stay Alfred full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    After almost a year I still love being part of this company. The CEO is open and honest with the behind the scenes happenings which is a complete rarity in most companies. The new HTO policy if fantastic as well as the new benefits coming in 2019, they are adding life insurance to our benefits which several have been asking for. They also offer a generous 401k after a yr. The over all team atmosphere and compassion to fellow employees is one very different from most places you will ever work, I am glad I get to be part of it.

    Cons

    As with any company and any employer there are down sides. Some don't get noticed in their positions because it is just day to day stuff their jobs revolve around, others gets lots of recognition due to the direction the company is moving in. Some projects seem to be fly by the seat of our pants which usually don't end well. The technical side of the company is moving at a very fast pace and can be frustrating for some that may not have as much knowledge of our ever changing environment. Overall not a lot of cons.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what we are doing to DOBETTER!
