    I have been working at Trov full-time

    Pros

    The company has an interesting culture of remote work (most of the engineering staff is remote). This sometimes makes communication a little tricky but overall I love it. It is the best thing in the world to work from home away from the noisy open concept offices.

    Typically, the company has retreats twice a year so you get to meet people in person and, due to the wide range of locations, it isn't that uncommon to have at least a few employees within a long drive. So there are opportunities to get to know each other.

    The compensation and benefits are good. The expectation is to be a professional and, in one trying circumstance, I saw that management could handle a difficult situation well. I feel that I can give my best in this environment.

    Cons

    Due to the industry, there are some requirements that slow down development. I think this is most easy to observe on the backend and I think this is one of the areas that Trov could improve in. I do see efforts to do so and I think this will continue to improve.

    Pros

    The People: Just a great group of folks.

    While Trov is growing quickly, there is still the "closeness, caring aspect" and family feel. The company works hard to keep connections / communications thriving for all the remote folks with events like Company gatherings and departmental events. Happy hour, bowling nights, painting parties and much more are opportunities to connect locally. Employees give shout outs (#trovlove) and recognize others for their contributions daily. Truly a place that is focused on building a cohesive effective TEAM - no matter your location.

    The Campus & Culture: Trov HQ has a "campus" feel with two amazing locations (located 500 feet apart) in the Danville Area.

    HQ includes membership to a local gym, and has great relationships / short walking distances to the local restaurants/bars. The newly remodeled HQ office is b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l and comfortable and stocked with swag and treats. Located in a 100 year historic building, Trov is equipped with zoom Rooms, sit/stand desks, cozy "neighborhoods" for working, a fleet of electric scooters and bikes for "mobile" meetings, delicious snacks, places for pets, views of Mt Diablo and Las Trampas and list goes on. The culture encourages team work, FUN, humility, respect for others, laughter, friendships, and superior work results . Great benefits.

    The Work: Disrupting the Insurance Industry! Super Exciting and FUN.

    The CEO: Approachable - Smart - Experienced - Kind.
    Last year he offered he invited those who did not have a place to go for Thanksgiving to join his family. Who does that?

    Cons

    As with most Start up companies: Growing pains.

    Advice to Management

    Growing quickly - will have to work to keep the family feel & open culture going.
    As with all start ups - there are bumps. Keep on the offensive vs defensive.
    Continue the transparency and open culture.
    Appreciate the "no politics" type of environment.
