    I have been working at The Author Incubator full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I can't tell you how refreshing it is to work somewhere where the employees legitimately love their jobs. There are no arguments, no gossip, no backstabbing or corporate ladder climbing. We come together and work as a team and enjoy doing it. There are so many wonderful people who work here and I consider myself lucky to be a part of this diverse team. The benefits are awesome, hard work doesn't go unnoticed and I love...

    Cons

    Honestly don't see this as a negative as it keeps the work interesting, but we move fast and change constantly which may not be a fit for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, it's working.

    Pros

    Working with The Author Incubator means being willing to be in alignment in all areas of your life. It means constantly checking in on your life goals and being truthful with yourself and those around you about how your job supports you in turning your dreams into a reality. If it doesn't come natural to you already, you will quickly learn how to be an integrated person - how to be all of you all of the time. Having...

    Cons

    We grow and move fast here! It's important to be open to change and easily adaptable. We pivot when necessary and are ever-evolving. If you want a job where you come into work and do the same thing all day, everyday then The Author Incubator is not your fit!

    I have been working at The Author Incubator full-time

    Pros

    This place is beyond incredible. Convention is abhorred, and there's absolutely every effort to avoid the kind of stifling dehumanization you get at any other job. It's not a slot to stuff a body in to get a task done. It's actually, genuinely a place to work together with awesome people to do awesome things. Very strong commitment to values. In other, more technical terms, great policies for vacation and hours and...

    Cons

    I have not personally found any. If you're lazy and a procrastinator, looking for a job where you have a lot of downtime and get to watch Netflix all day, this isn't for you. It requires that you put all your effort in. It's easy to do, and mistakes are not punished but a lesson to be learned from. You just have to be willing to actually work and try.

    I have been working at The Author Incubator full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I've been hired for my strengths and encouraged to occupy my zone of genius. I'm asked to develop these skills in order to master my role for the benefit of myself, those I work with, and most importantly our clients.

    Cons

    There is no hiding here! It isn't a true con--there aren't any--but if you want a job where playing small is rewarded, you won't be happy here. You are asked to grow into becoming your best self on a daily basis. If you aren't up for that, don't apply to work here or join this team.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing--it is working!!!

    I have been working at The Author Incubator full-time

    Pros

    The most amazing thing about working at the Author Incubator is that the senior staff seems truly committed to finding fantastic people and then challenging them to become even better. Everyone here, from coworkers to authors, has been a blessing to work with, and we learn from one another every day. This job really is everything I had been looking for: a remote, flexible work environment where I feel seen and appreciated...

    Cons

    Working remotely is a dream come true, but it's not without challenges. I think many of us have learned that loving your job can make it even harder to maintain a healthy work-life balance sometimes! We're challenged to do more than we think we can, so learning to communicate limits has been essential.

    Advice to Management

    I love how much you concentrate on making employees feel valued as you plan compensation/benefits! It would be great if, as the company expands, you consider adding a health insurance option to allow us to skip the stress of navigating our own. Other than that, just keep on keepin' on! You're all so wonderful. (Can I double thumbs up you guys?)
