      Pros

      Autonomy - If you have the drive, you’re able to take ownership of features Growth - If you excel in your position, you will be rewarded Collaborative environment - Wag! Is one of the places where your voice is heard. Don’t like how something is being done? Speak up and your feedback is valued and can be implemented. You really get to see your ideas in action Transparency - Leadership team is very open about information and dashboards available to the team Pet lovers - What started as a dog walking company has expanded to cats and other pets! Never a shortage of pet puns on slack (even the All Hands is called All Paws!)

      Cons

      All workplaces have their cons but one of them like at any other startup is speed and change. If you don’t like going fast and having changing priorities, you may have some trouble adjusting to the velocity here

      Great except for occasional frauds

      Pros

      Work on your own schedule, have the opportunity to build strong relationships with clients, and not working under a boss.

      Cons

      I have experienced 2 incidents of fraud. You just have to be careful and NOT give information out to people. Technical support and finding someone to talk to during these experiences was challenging. They need to have people that help walkers in serious incidents such as fraud.
