    I have been working at Lose It! full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Crazy-Good Benefits
    Not just the insurance and options, either. When I tell my friends and family about things like company trips they can't believe the benefits could be that good; they literally think they've misunderstood what I've told them.

    - Aggressive Compensation
    I was being underpaid at a larger company. If you're questioning how much you're worth, Lose It! may just prove its more than you think.

    - Meaningful, Robust Product
    Its really nice to work somewhere that is NOT a giant evil corporation shadily profiting by selling their user data. Lose It! is transparent, profitable, and really trying to help users.

    Cons

    - Big Codebase
    Lose It! is a robust product but that comes with a large codebase. Fortunately, Sr. Devs have great domain knowledge (because Lose It! works hard to retain their employees) and the code has only minor tech debt. Onboarding could use a little work but its actively being addressed.

    - Low Structure
    Company organization is relatively flat and there isn't a ton of structure (no stand ups, scrum, etc.). This con is really a pro for people who prefer to code rather than sit around in meetings. Unfortunately, it does contribute to...

    - Cross Team Communication Isn't Great
    We're working this. As it stands, we stumble a bit when product needs marketing to know X before customer care does Y. Management is aware of it and working to improve in this area as we grow. Fortunately, we're lean and agile enough to react quickly when this does cause us to stumble.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keepin' on.
