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

    Pros

    Working at Close has been a blast! When I applied to work there, I read all the Glassdoor reviews and to be honest, was kinda like, "Sure, yeah, whatever - this is probably the typical 'Glassdoor window dressing' stuff." So while I was excited about accepting an offer to work with their team, I was also a bit skeptical that my perception of great people doing great work would be quickly disappointed, so I lowered...

    Cons

    It's not for everyone. If amid uncertainty, you don't naturally default toward action (e.g., "I'm not sure, but I can figure it out..."), you likely won't be a fit at Close. In that same vein, you likely won't be a fit if you're intimidated to ask questions - even seemingly silly ones. As a culture, we question ourselves, our peers, our processes, and choices from last week, month, or year. So if you're not comfortable...

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. Keep owning your successes, transparently owning your failures, and pushing the team to grow - it's working and it's a pleasure to be a part of! :)

    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...

    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.

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

    Pros

    *The company value their employees more than anywhere I have ever worked. We were sent a care package from the CEO during our busy period at the start of the year with vitamins, chocolates and other goodies *You can work from anywhere around the world. Travelling doesn't need to destroy your PTO day limit *The people are awesome and all have their own unique stories and quirks. The retreats are a great way to connect...

    Cons

    *Genuinely can't think of anything off the top of my head. If there are any issues then the Close team are excellent at hearing you out and finding a solution

    Advice to Management
