      Pros

      Nest is fast paced, demanding and because of that extremely rewarding. It still has the feeling of a startup bringing new challenges every day but since the acquisition by Google (now Alphabet) we have the opportunity to grow, faster. I have never worked with a more dedicated, hard working and talented group of people. You feel like you're part of something pretty amazing. Nest has a very open culture There is an incredible amount of thought to the design and quality of the products we make. Great comp and benefits Work/life balance

      Cons

      It can be a tough company to work for. Nest requires you to step up daily to help them create some awesome products. If you're looking for a relaxing job where you can become an office wallflower then working at Nest Labs would not be for you.

      Pros

      Nest is an ambitious company that will become a household brand fuelled by a strong long-term vision and a talented team of individuals. It keeps the best elements of being a start-up with those of an established brand thanks to Google backing and as a result you get the best of both worlds. The company offers good benefits, has a team mentality, and you genuinely have the benefit of being proud in the work you produce.

      Cons

      This is not an environment where you can hide. You need to work hard, be transparent, and meet your targets and some people think that as we are a leader in our category this should no longer be the case. It’s obviously frustrating when 99% of the people work hard, put the hours in, and take real pride in their work whilst a few people moaning brings down the mood.
