    I have been working at League full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    League cares a lot about people we have a lot of perks. We got uber eats instead of ritual when we had to start working from home. I like the unlimited vacation and now we have friday afternoons off for the summer. Everyone here is really smart and we are doing a lot of good things for helping people be healthier. Not a lot of companies in the city make it as far as we have and its exciting to be here.

    Cons

    We had to give up some of our pay so that the company would survive some people were laid off

    I worked at League full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Great work life balance e.g. almost no meeting between 12noon and 2pm - Reasonable actions, detailed and genuine communication from the CEO and top executives with regards to the pandemic

    Cons

    - People are not recognised for great project management practice, instead penalised for unproven nitpicking - The nitpicking is an attempt to hold on to political power against the threat of external expertise and influence

    Pros

    An amazing company where everyone strongly believes in the mission. Everyone here goes above and beyond when looking out for their teams and others. Individuals are always generous with their time to help out when needed. People work hard to achieve ambitious goals and it's amazing to see what League's been able to achieve in only 5 years! I'm excited to continue on this journey.

    Cons

    Sometimes longer hours but still very balanced for a high growth environment.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us, we’re saddened to hear that you haven’t had a positive time at League. You’re right, we had to make some changes to our team and we minimized the impact to jobs as much as we possibly could. This has been a difficult economic time for many people. We have several resources available for onboarding including; first day orientation, 30-60-90 day plans, our Leaguemate program, and many others. If you have feedback to share that could help us make onboarding even better - please send a note to people@league.com or use the anonymous Slack channel or Culture Amp!

    Pros

    some of the people, pay

    Cons

    Wanted to let you guys know I added the review of "Toxic culture, unhappy employees, ignorant leadership" on Thursday June 4th, and the following Monday there were THREE 5 star reviews posted, on the same day. If this isn't clear evidence you shouldn't work here I don't know what is. What have you guys got to hide? Why do you need to plant good reviews?

    I worked at League full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Nice to have perks that come with being at a tech startup - A lot of talented and intelligent individuals

    Cons

    - Lack of accountability across leadership and managers - Non existent role-specific onboarding, a lot of employees feel like they are being "thrown into the fire" - Disparate divisions - Toxic culture due to toxic individuals normalizing how people are being treated\ - Non consistency with mission, too much consistency on prioritizing sales over what their values are - A lot of people are burnt out, and are given tasks where they may not be set up for success, that weighs on you

    I worked at League full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Company had a high profile

    Cons

    Poor leadership, lacks ownership. Very flawed strategic vision, company seems to be made up of people that use League as a platform to raise their own personal profile vs. contributing to company success in any meaningful way.

    I worked at League full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    League tick the boxes in so many different areas, there is a no fuss approach to benefits and making sure engineers have what they need. I was given a lot of trust and flexibility in my working schedule which I had a lot of appreciation for. - Beautiful Office - Unlimited Vacation - Benefits - Get to use your own product - Design Team are really rocking it - Talented People - Innovate Product - Great location - Modern tech stack - Culture initiatives, Heath and Wellness related - Compensation - Equipment - Engineering Culture - Open Meetings

    Cons

    League is rapidly growing company and as a newcomer I struggled to build meaningful relationships with co-workers. This left me to feel quite isolated at times. The quality of engineering varies, but I think people care and are passionate, they may be under pressured circumstances or tight delivery deadlines.

    Pros

    Great culture and people! There is some really cool work being done here! For a company that is only 5 years old it's amazing to see so many things well defined on par if not exceeding other companies.

    Cons

    Fast growth can lead to some ambiguity
