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

    Pros

    - Addepar Leadership cares about their employees, the company has responded fantastically to the COVID-19 situation - The culture is not perfect (whose is?) but the company actively works to live by the values - I seriously enjoy the people I work with because they are smart, talented, and passionate about their work - Great affinity groups and a culture of giving back

    Cons

    It is a growing and nimble company and so if you are not comfortable with change, this may not be the place for you.

    I worked at Addepar full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good food, good IT hardware.

    Cons

    Leadership would rather talk about problems endlessly than solve them. There is absolutely no ownership in leadership of the problems, and they're instead passed down to the absolute lowest level possible. Problems are never solved, and instead turn into thought exercises in reinventing the wheel and proposal writing. It seems that the only real effort displayed by leadership is blocking change to maintain the status quo, and not paying attention in ceaseless meetings. Advice to IC roles: Cliques and favoritism rules the day and determines advancement and pay. Performance is rewarded only in workload. Your efforts are better spent investing in posturing, networking, and hobnobbing with managers, than performing work.

    Pros

    Perks and Benefits are incredibly competitive Smart, friendly people who I look forward to seeing every day Flexible hours / work from home Hiring the right people for the next stage of growth for the company Promising runway of opportunity for success in the industry

    Cons

    High growth over the last couple of years leads to some change fatigue but the people here have the right attitude to overcome that - lots of teams growing and changing dynamics are all normal for a company looking to truly disrupt the industry. Exciting times - but hang on for the ride!
