Yesware is truly one of a kind and an amazing place to work. My time at Yesware has been a learning experience, a personal growth experience, and a wild ride that I wouldn't trade for anything. The number one thing to love about working at Yesware is the culture and the people. I've learned so much from the people at Yesware, both personally and professionally. This is such a smart, caring group of people who live up to their company values. For example: I had a pretty bad car accident during my time at Yesware. There were flowers from the company when I got home, cards from coworkers, and offers to cover any work missed. A beloved co-worker passed away and we were offered counseling sessions and a lot of leeway to mourn in a way that made sense for each individual. I experienced a mental health crisis during the pandemic and every possible accommodation was made and again, flowers. Mental health is so stigmatized and hard to talk about it, especially at work, and Zoe in HR and my manager made the whole process super easy to both talk about and take the time I needed to recover. Yesware also has tons of fun events and killer benefits. Who doesn't love unlimited vacation and a kitchen full of snacks? They cut a few benefits back due to Covid belt tightening, but they wanted to keep their people more than keep their perks, which I'd prefer any day. I assume once things go back to normal a bit, they'll re-instate some of the unnecessary perks. Yesware is also really dedicated to social causes and has a commitment to diversity, which, in my opinion, is so important. I believe at one point we were 50/50 women, an impressive feat in tech. Another pro of Yesware is the transparency from Execs. Nothing is a surprise and employees are kept in the loop, even in difficult times. A better way to put that is: "especially in difficult times." Because Yesware is a small company, you can make a big impact. There's always work to be done, and you'll be rewarded if you roll up your sleeves and get to work where work is needed.
Start-up life is not for everyone. It took me about six months to get used to the constant change, limited resources, and overall chaos. If you thrive in a fast paced, ever-changing environment and enjoy being scrappy, a start-up is for you. If you're all about processes and boundaries between job roles, I'd say look elsewhere. Start-up life is chaos, but it's also a blast. Because Yesware is a venture backed start-up, sometimes career growth can be stalled because there aren't the resources or the growth to make it possible. This too is not Yesware specific, but something to keep in mind when choosing your next workplace. If you're in a customer facing role, because Yesware is a B2B company aimed at Sales people, your primary customer base will be folks in Sales. This can sometimes be a challenge based on the Sales culture of your customers, especially if you are a woman. It's not a deal breaker by any means, but just something to be aware of. I honestly can't think of any real Yesware-specific cons. The non customer facing folks and customer facing folks are a bit separated, but Yesware has done a lot of work to make everyone a more integrated, larger team so we speak the same language and have the same goals. No company is perfect, but Yesware does its absolute best to meet challenges head-on and solve them.2

I really enjoy working at Yesware. Everyone is hard-working, kind, and welcoming. The company is filled with smart and driven people who have taught me so much. Because of the small teams, you have a lot of responsibility right off the bat which personally helped me grow a ton professionally. I enjoy going to work every day and love the people I work with.
Just your typical startup bumps in the road. It’s a competitive industry. We move fast and work hard and try to tackle the challenges as best we can.

Yesware has it all! Great people, a great product, and an awesome culture. Everyone from the top down, are fantastic. Upon joining the Yesware team, I immediately was welcomed and never felt like an outsider or a "nube"--people were friendly and each interaction felt truly genuine. I have worked for other tech companies where eye contact and even in-person conversations are a rarity and dead stares in the hallway and instant messages trump human interaction. It's refreshing to work in an environment where technology is used to the max, but a simple "hi" or laugh over lunch isn't lacking. The benefits and pay are nothing to sneeze at either! They reflect how much each employee is valued and not seen as just a worker. From the unlimited vacation days, nap room, massages, on-site fitness/wellness classes, awesome snacks and drinks, free lunches, and so on--I have never felt so wanted by a company. It's a pleasure to work here and cannot wait to see what the future holds!
We only get massages once a month. Can we get it twice a month? Seriously, I cannot think of anything at the moment. If there is anything that is ever of concern, I am able to speak directly to anyone and bring up the issue/concern as well as present any solutions and be heard. I find so much value in the level of empowerment and transparency I've seen in this company.4
