Former Contractor - Marketing Manager

I worked at Spotify for more than a year

Pros

Very fast paced start up culture. Transparent and open leadership.

Cons

Lack of processes can be hectic and unstructured.

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

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.
