Current Employee - Employer Brand Manager

I have been working at Badoo full-time for less than a year

Pros

* Really well looked after during Covid-19 and easy transition to WFH (cash bonus, regular emails from LT, employee hardship fund created, company donated money to worthy causes, Bumble gave out... small business grants, online yoga / meditation classes for free and treats and hampers sent in the post) * Very inspiring CEO (Whitney Wolfe Herd) who genuinely cares about employee wellbeing and demonstrates this through her actions * Amazing benefits and cool offices, free food, daily massages, hairdressers in the office, daily treats, training budget, PMI, dental, Babylon Health, amazing parties and loads more. * Kind people who are smart and good at what they do * Fast paced and autonomous culture, ideas are welcomed and listened to * Regular CEO updates * Working with two purpose led brands that care about human connection and equality

Cons

There are a few teething problems to iron out as the company grows and becomes more unified but it's moving in the right direction

Advice to Management

Continue to put people first and the rest will fall into place

I have been working at Close full-time

Pros

Remote working is the future and it's great to find a company that embraces it so fully. Schedules are flexible and as long as the work gets done, nobody really minds when you work. I've met... people from all over the world, and twice a year we all get together in the same place. Everyone cares about the product and the business, and are truly some of the best at what they do. The hiring process is rigorous but it has to be to enable the company culture and ensure people can work together well. They would rather accept the "right" person for the company than the "best" person in the field. Everyone is a little bit mad :)

Cons

If you've never worked remotely before it would be a challenge to adapt. It's also difficult to structure your day around certain meetings due to the differences in timezones. I've found myself... working later and later. The benefits offered are great but only if you live in the US. There is no healthcare, dental or 401k otherwise.
