    I have been working at Unito full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Awesome company culture - super friendly and inclusive! Team meets for lunches, engages in fun activities, and people support each other.
    - Big push on employee wellness + work/life balance.
    - Very conscientious + fair managers. Cohesive management between teams.
    - Relaxed, transparent atmosphere that fosters genuine passion and motivation in all members of the company.
    - Genuine, equal value placed on the work + self-development of every employee.

    Cons

    - Start up culture isn't the right fit for people looking to coast. Not a con as such, just something to be aware of.

    Advice to Management

    - Keep up with the awesome self-awareness, open-mindedness, and individual-centric compensation/growth/feedback matrices.

    I worked at Unito full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - All team members were made aware of metrics and financials
    - Since it's a small company, you get to touch everything
    - Fresh Tech Stack
    - Great mentors in the engineering department

    Cons

    - Early stage startup means the compensation and benefits would be higher elsewhere. It's still a worth it trade off through.

    + Great team: multicultural, diverse, great personalities, open to feedbacks, involved in their work and fun

    Pros

    + Great leadership: open-minded, experienced leaders. You are actually responsible for what you work on, you do what you think it's best.

    Pros

    Thoughtful, respectful folks. There's trust, knowledge, and little politics. 👍

    Cons

    Startup-becoming-a-young-company, this won't be the best salary you'll find.

    I have been working at Unito full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    + The best organized startup I've ever worked at
    + Culture is heavily invested in distributing authority, learning experiences, and information
    + Data driven decision making. There's an astonishing lack of politics at work in what gets done.
    + Openness and transparency: information like salaries, monthly earnings, and daily to-dos are publicly available for everyone in the company
    + Seasoned leadership that mentors their team
    + Diverse company: more than 30% women, 9 different countries of origin for employees, and ages from 24 - 54 all working here
    + Hard working like any startup, but no crazy 80 hour a week death marches
    + Everyone's easy to get along with
    + Surprisingly great benefits for a startup; health insurance, wellness spending accounts, training, company-provided computers, etc.
    + Dat startup vibe.
    + Huge market potential for growth
    + Open communication at all levels of the company

    Cons

    - Not a company where everyone hangs out after work every week. If you want your work buddies to be your best friends, you're probably not gonna find that here. If you've got a home life or hobby outside of work, you'll fit right in. ;)
    - Small company brings risks & responsibilities. If you're looking to coast along at work and just put in your 40 hours and go home with no stress, this may not be for you. If you wanna make a big difference and dedicate yourself to improving your craft, this is totally your jam.
    - Things change. It's a startup. While the leadership team is seasoned and things aren't a madhouse, fast hiring, a dedication to data-based decision making, and a preference for doing instead of talking means that projects can change hands, team members can be moved around, and initiatives can be updated or canceled based on KPIs. Flexible thinkers are needed.

    Advice to Management

    I *am* management. I'd feel awkward giving me advice.
