    I worked at Managed by Q full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - A fantastic place to learn. That is– if you are willing to ask questions and never settle for "I know enough."

    - A hard-working team, really committed to making Q's "good jobs philosophy" a success by ensuring all employees earn a decent wage and have access to solid benefits (health, 401k, paid holidays, sick leave) - no matter if you're a cleaner or an engineer.

    - Feedback and improvements ideas are welcomed positively. I never felt my comments would be dismissed or not addressed.

    - Massive efforts to become a more diverse and unbiased work environment. Not a 100% successful, but definitely working towards that.

    - Intellectually challenging (depends on team and responsibilities) - There are plenty of issues to solve, processes to be created and improved upon (it is a startup after all) - If you are a natural problem solver - this is a fantastic place for you.

    - Transparent CEO and leadership. Everybody knows how the company is doing at all levels, and this really makes you feel you're working on something BIG.

    Cons

    - Work/life balance for some of some Services team members is non-existent. Although I think there is a personal grade of responsibility here, I encourage the company to look into this. People do burnout.

    - Some inexperienced folks in director and manager level positions.

    Advice to Management

    - If you want to continue to grow, you have to bring people with more experience on large-scale operations (especially in the services side of the business.) or at least, be better advised on how to manage complex field operations along with an ever-growing internal workforce.

    -I like what we’re building but sometimes it feels safe and uncreative. Encourage more out-of-the-box thinking, and I have no doubt Q will be a force to reckon with.

    I have been working at Managed by Q full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Nearly 3 years and 2 teams later, I have found myself continuously challenged and engaged in the problems we are trying to solve.
    -Great opportunity for career growth. The team is incredibly supportive in helping you navigate your career path
    -We are building something that hasn't been done before and changing the way thousands of companies work

    Cons

    -Typical pain points of a startup - things are always changing and the turnover can be high at times. Those that have stuck around are truly dedicated and believe in the future and vision of the company.
    -Remote cities do not always get access to the same resources as HQ - this has improved significantly though
    -Need to bring in additional leadership that has helped scale a similar business model

    Advice to Management

    Keep being transparent about our vision and why we are are evolving our technology and service offerings. And always keeping our mission of empowering others at the forefront

    Pros

    - Fun people to work with
    - Fantastic opportunities
    - Happy Hours & Catered lunches
    - Lots of resources to succeed!

    Cons

    - Not for you if you're not open to change and the refocusing that comes with working at a startup. That being said, sales team goals are very fluid & changes from quarter to quarter.
    - You don't get very many actual holiday days, but that is offset by unlimited PTO.

    Pros

    Passionate and kind co-workers. An office environment where you can feel comfortable to yourself.
    Great perks (parties, snacks, unlimited PTO)
     An environment that encourages empowering each other and empowering our clients and partners
    A clear and exciting vision for the future

    Cons

    The start-up world comes with lots of changes, big and small. These can be difficult to navigate but they are always made with the best intentions. You should be prepared for that when entering into any start-up environment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! Keep open and honest communication. The 2019 strategy is exciting and there is a lot of great work to be done.

    Pros

    Being part of a team where you feel like you're working together to build something is invaluable. I joined the company about 7 months ago and I can honestly say I look forward to coming to work everyday. Wether it be for the people I get to work with, the new challenges I'm faced with, or the overall feeling of walking away like my job matters - the feeling of excitement sticks with me. I feel supported, heard, and valued everyday.... what more could you ask for? A really cool mission? Managed by Q has that too.

    Cons

    If you're a person who doesn't want to jump in and hit the ground running, you may feel overwhelmed at first.
