Does Perlego offer vision insurance?

Pros

- A young, highly motivated, fairly open and ambitious team. - Because of the size of the company you have the opportunity to directly see the impact of your work - Growing focus on culture and collaboration - Beautiful office space - Free Monday breakfast & bi-weekly team Lunch - Sponsored gym membership - Team socials & activities Being able to help create something of real value and be surrounded by inspiring, talented, hard-working people. Perlego is my second design-role job and I've grown (and continue to grow) a lot since starting, due to the patience and investment from the management team.

Cons

- If you work within a medium-large team/a lot of people depend on your work, 'flexible working hours quickly become less flexible' - I started as an intern finishing my final module, when the team was fairly small. Because there was a scarcity of time and resources, I sometimes struggled to receive the guidance and mentorship I was looking for at the time. There has previously been a lack of communication. (I could have benefited from more frequent and solution-based feedback) *Its work noting that this has/is continuing to change and there are now bi-weekly one-to-ones with your managers focused and improving you and your work. . . Although everyone at Perlego is supportive, It is a very fast-paced, high-intensity environment. Everyone is busy and hardworking, so if you're starting as a junior, expect most of your development and learnings to be self-led, however, you will be surrounded by a talented team always willing to do what they can to help :)

Advice to Management

Does Perlego offer massages?

Pros

There is a true startup atmosphere, with all the pros and only some cons that come with it. Since this is what I was looking for, I'm putting it down as pro. To give a bit more details, we get the opportunity to work with the latest tech available, making it amazing for career growth. There is also the opportunity to take full ownership on certain projects and decide how to implement them if our arguments are good enough. A helpful team, which is ready to help when needed. Above all, it's a product that I believe in, making me want to work towards it. Nearly forgot to mention the free coffee, beer, and hot chocolates! That's pretty awesome.

Cons

Big pressure to get projects done - within reason, but some weeks the work load is quite high. Everyone works quite hard, so socials do tend to end a bit too soon.

Advice to Management

Continue to focus on recruiting people with the drive to work here - the most important factor in a start up is the people.
