      Pros

      Everything!! You can tell this is a company that really cares, they are so big on work life balance it is so refreshing to see. Managers really care about your development and the progression path is clear and achievable. The culture is amazing, even from starting remotely I have felt so welcomed and a part of the company! The benefits are great, you find out new ones every week, they want to make sure you are at your best working ability and will help you in whatever way they can Not only is the company great but the product is just fantastic and a really fun sell, you really care about the merchants that use it and it is so fun spotting them when you are out and about

      Cons

      Pros

      Great people A lot of flexibility Good stock options Selling a really great suite of products Everyone is passionate about the company's mission

      Cons

      Almost no one is hitting quota, including people who have been here for a while Blatant cheating and sales leadership doesn't have the will to change anything Sales team overall is such a mess and making small changes, but not really making the big changes needed No work-life balance and we are all underpaid for working very hard Once you hit Senior AE, no room to grown after that
