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

    Pros

    -Great work environment - open office space where everyone respects each other so it's never too loud. -Unique and exciting culture - allows for ownership over your own responsibilities. I feel like I'm never micro-managed and I'm challenged regularly. -Amazing people - everyone is very smart and ambitious. I am constantly learning from my coworkers. -Great benefits - unlimited vacation, flexible schedule/can work from home when needed, gym reimbursement, lunch Thurs/Fri, snacks, coffee and tea. Also, great events! Regular happy hours, Halloween party, holiday party, bi-annual hackathons, and more! -YipitData makes it great to come to work everyday.

    Cons

    Honestly can't think of any!

    Pros

    - Strong culture that underpins everything we do (lots of ownership, everyone respects each other, everyone is aligned to the same goals) - Get to work with very smart and driven coworkers, no one has an ego - Encouraged to try new things, make mistakes, learn and do it all over again - Strong product and development, very well regarded by clients - Flexible working environment and great office near Union Square

    Cons

    No real downsides that I can think of. It's challenging yet exciting and rewarding work. If you're not looking for that, then it might not be the best fit for you

    I have been working at YipitData full-time

    Pros

    Amazing people - I have never worked with a smarter group of people. Period. I feel so privileged to learn and tackle problems with them on a daily basis, especially since we have such an amazing culture of selflessness & self-improvement. Work culture - I can't say enough about how grateful I am for how much control & ownership I have over my workflow. There are obviously times when your team has to meet deadlines, but, for the most part, I feel complete control over when I go to work (varies a lot from 7am to noon), how long I stay at work, whether I work in the office or at home, and whether I go to work at all. Our culture of valuing impact and actively not attributing value to traditional proxies like facetime is a game changer. I feel not just able but *encouraged* to live & work as I want - to figure out for myself what days/hours are ones I can push harder and which are ones I need to use to recharge or step out for a change of pace. Great work environment - I'm one of those people who needs an inspiring environment to work well & to be happy. Our office is beautiful - there's plenty of natural light & plants everywhere. Since we have the whole floor, we have two huge walls of windows - my favorite days are the snowy ones when I can set up my laptop by the windows. We also have not 1 but 2 kitchens - one with snacks/fruit/fridge and the other with all kinds of coffee (espresso machine, regular drip, & cold brew on tap). Leadership - The management team is great with communication. We have company wide Q&A sessions all the time, weekly one-on-ones with our managers, weekly/monthly one-on-one meetings with the VPs, and rotating one-on-ones with the founders.

    Cons

    Pressure - We are an ambitious bunch, which means we can end up pushing ourselves to our limits. There are definitely times when I've felt overwhelmed & it can get exhausting. (This is when I'd take a couple days off, thank you open vacation policy - work hard, play hard.)

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

    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

    + 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.

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

    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
