      Cons

      I have been working at RXBAR full-time

      Pros

      The founders at RXBAR are honest, upfront, empathetic, and humble. These qualities are a solid part of the culture and trickle down from leadership to all employees. I've never been with a company that places an emphasis on EQ and self awareness, which is so important these days. I feel challenged on a personal and professional level, plus, the bars are delicious!

      Cons

      Don't have much to say here - although it is fast paced and the ability to pivot quickly might not be for everyone.

      Great team and great company. Growth has and is still really fast, making this an exciting fast paced environment.

Plus it doesn't hurt that the product is awesome!

      No cons, great place to be!
