    I have been working at YipitData full-time

    Pros

    Exciting opportunity to help a startup become the future of investment research.
    Great culture built on ownership and impact.
    Fun environment, beautiful office
    Learn new skills
    Excellent team, incredibly talented and driven

    Cons

    You probably won't succeed here if you are looking for something that is "just a job." You come here if you want to make it a mission to help a company grow extremely fast

    Pros

    * Autonomy, ownership and transparency are not just buzz word in this company. These values are being demonstrated at every level of the company, starting with the founders.
    * Great to work amongst talented, motivated people
    * Big focus on the tech side on always improving our technologies, experimenting with new ideas and shipping code in production fast
    * Wide range of technologies used internally. Good training and constant focus on making sure people keep on learning.
    * A lot of perks: over the market compensations, health insurance, snacks, Thursday + Friday lunch, gym membership...
    * A great work environment

    Cons

    * We're mostly doing back-end work. It might not be the best place to learn extensive front-end skills or mobile application implementation.

    Pros

    The company's core values are centered around ownership and impact, not face time or time spent at the company. This empowers employees to work as hard as they want to, and rewards employees who make a big impact in a short amount of time. The culture of YipitData is ideal for anyone that likes to be surrounded by extremely intelligent, ambitious people that want to work hard, learn new things, and achieve company and personal goals. At the same time, everyone is able to maintain a healthy work life balance because employees are given significant independence in determining their own work schedule, vacations, time spent working from home, etc

    Cons

    This place is awesome, so there aren't really any legitimate cons. The only con I can think of is that you probably won't make as much money as you would working at a hedge fund or some other high paying job, but that is to be expected when working at any startup. That being said, this company does pay very well compared to other startups

    Advice to Management

    Don't abandon the company's core values as we grow!

    Pros

    + intelligent and hardworking team that always pushes you to get better
    + culture of selflessness means your colleagues are looking out for each other and helping each other succeed
    + encouraged to admit your mistakes, then learn and grow from them, very empowering way to grow professionally and get better at what you do
    + a lot of transparency internally around company plan and financials makes you really feel like part of the future of the company
    + still small enough to feel really connected with everyone
    ++ company and leadership you can really believe in

    Cons

    Everyone is held to incredibly high standards because every employee is considered key to the success of the company. This is great for some but not everyone - you have to be ready to be very self reflective and work hard.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being transparent about decisions and finding ways to continue the culture of ownership and mastery.

    Pros

    Deliberate and great culture: emphasis on ownership, autonomy, mastery, and impact, through words and actions; proven and well-run business; management and team more than willing to be reflective and learn from mistakes in a way that everyone learns and no one feels blamed; willing to experiment and experiments are often successful and pursued

    Cons

    Typical start-up cons: sometimes too fast-paced; frequent organizational changes; lots of experiments that don't end up successful, which might be frustrating to some; unclear career paths

    Advice to Management

    Keep focus on culture and experimenting/pursuing successful experiments
