    I have been working at Vitals full-time

    Pros

    So many reviews praise the snacks, work / life balance and unlimited vacation policy. That's really a "pro" at a start up? What about pride in the product / service?

    Cons

    Run like a large company, but repeatedly misses it's financial projections. CEO is pandering, disingenuous and inconsistent. Senior managers are usually not in the office and if they are, their doors are closed. Rewards "yes men" who don't rock the boat. Feels like an antiquated 1950's company with all sorts of soft incentives that miss the mark. Culture is weak. The proof is in the results.

    Pros

    There werent many at all.
    Snacks (and not healthy ones) Time off. Most people nice in my location, not NY, or NJ.

    Cons

    No 401k match, health benefits high, coverage bad. Management top heavy, HR and CEO disconnected. No trust. Turned into political Game of Thrones.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on the producers mid and low level. They are the ones in the trenches getting it done.

    Let HR, CFO, CEO know that no one cares about snacks, and chair massages, cakes to celebrate and balloons. Waste of $.

    Bonuses and raises, along with the co. making money is what makes employees happy.

    And everyone should get stock.

    Pros

    Laid back, helpful, friendly, work at home opportunities, learning opportunities. Great work life balances. Usually okay deadlines to meet.

    Cons

    Maybe not a con, but embracing new technologies and dropping technologies just as fast. Be ready for a learning curve.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back cheaper insurance premiums.

    Pros

    Vitals is committed to their employees. The engineers are well respected by the executive team. Teams are distributed and effective--wide array of languages and tooling.

    Engineers can look forward to an extremely generous PTO policy. Nobody is micromanaging you at Vitals. There is freedom to explore new technology while expecting to uphold best practices during development.

    The executive team is composed of veterans very adept at navigating the complexities of healthcare.

    Cons

    Complex codebase can make onboarding challenging for new engineers as well as difficult to untangle and improve.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    I have been working at Vitals full-time

    Pros

    The company has a clear and compelling value proposition-to positively impact the cost of healthcare. There is real effort made to communicate how all employees contribute to the progress toward that vision. There is a lot of emphasis placed on recognizing individual contributions and their impact.

    Cons

    Not a "con" per se, but a rapid growth environment is very different than what exists in more established companies, and in order to succeed you really need to be capable of finding the balance between "just doing it" vs waiting for direction.
