    I have been working at Virta full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This is a truly mission-driven company, and profits really do fuel purpose here. I have seen first-hand just how quickly and effectively this program can work for people with metabolic diseases, and the incredible community it creates for patients and employees alike. I absolutely love working here and can't wait to see what we accomplish!

    Cons

    Like drinking out of a firehose sometimes! And as a startup, there's still growing pains. Benefits are solid though compensation is middle of the road. No 401k match yet.

    I have been working at Virta full-time

    Pros

    The mission is terrific! Being able to reverse T2D is quite an achievement if can be done.

    Cons

    The company is disjointed in many ways. As a startup they have a lot of growing pains but the expectations of a well established company with clear goals. That is not the case with Virta. High expectations without the tools to set you up for success.

    I have been working at Virta full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - All members of the company are passionate about our mission to reverse diabetes. No matter your role, you feel that the work you are doing in driving us towards that mission and saving our patient's lives. - People first environment with a very open culture of communication. Virta has been extremely flexible and understanding about each employee's unique situation and needs during COVID and has worked to openly address and ensure all employees are set up for success. - As we grow as a company, new opportunities emerge internally to continue to grow and progress career trajectory based on personal goals and interests. - Very collaborative environment in which employees function as "one team" and work together to solve problems, keeping the patient at the center of our work - Open to feedback to continue to improve culture

    Cons

    - Being a startup, resources can oftentimes be tight and employees will need to wear several hats in order to get the job done

    I have been working at Virta full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working at Virta comes with many pros. A few that I want to highlight are: 1. Best company culture. I've worked in different professional settings (corporate, education, non-profit) and Virta's employees make the culture amazing. We're all on the same page, people are smart and no egos. 2. Impact: I've never had so much positive impact. We have tools and resource that allow us to work with many patients instead of only a few at a time.

    Cons

    At no fault to anyone, the COVID situation has taken a hit on the social aspect of working in an office. Can't wait for that to come back, remote work has taken a toll on many (not just at Virta). Still, grateful to have a job during this challenging time.

    I have been working at Virta full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Collaborative team environment, upward mobility within the organization, prioritizing work that makes an impact, mission based, open door policy with our executive team. Having managers and a CEO who leads by example and understands competing priorities with families during the time of COVID has really been invaluable to our entire team. I have been at Virta about 2.5 years (two of those full-time) and consider this to be my most meaningful work.

    Cons

    A little sad to be fully remote due to COVID.

    I have been working at Virta full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The biggest benefit is that you regularly hear from patient's about how your work is impacting their lives. We get messages daily from patient's who have seen substantial improvements in the control of their type 2 diabetes including reduction/elimination of medications, lost weight and improved health There's a cliche about startups that are "changing the world" but at Virta Health, you have actual examples and data to see that the code you're working on is helping people There are some decent benefits with the unlimited PTO, good health insurance, etc Virta just announced a remote first policy that should allow us to hire candidates around the country and give more flexibility for employees. It also indicates a commitment to improving the working experience for remote employees

    Cons

    Virta is growing rapidly so teams and managers shift regularly The management philosophy is closer to the Netflix philosophy that "we're a team; not a family"
