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

    Pros

    - Great collaborative culture.
    - Everyone communicates really openly and effectively.
    - The new business model (partnering with big brands to sell their returns through a white label service) is smart and truly disrupting the retail space.
    - Mission driven - reducing waste.
    - Fierce commitment to executing as a team.
    - People produce good quality work.
    - Management is compassionate and committed to employees.
    - Small, agile team that can execute quickly.
    - Lunch 2X a week.

    Cons

    - Warehouse environment (doesn't bother me but could be a culture shock if you're not used to it).
    - Team is small (again just depends on your preference, growing quickly).
    - Office is not in SF proper, but commute is manageable.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up--you motivate the team really well and continued transparency is appreciated.

    Make sure all teams have the resources they need to be successful--check in with them on this frequently.

    Invest in management training for new leaders.

    Pros

    small company with lots of upside. meaningful mission that everyone is aligned around.

    Cons

    barely competitive compensation. uncertainty that comes with working at a small startup.

    Advice to Management

    It's a small team and everyone know's each other's business - keep that in mind when handling HR or personnel issues.

    Pros

    I've really enjoyed working at Yerdle. Everybody is very dedicated to making the product better and are able to re-evaluate how things are working to keep improving.

    Cons

    There have been so many changes in process that its sometimes hard to tell how we should be working together.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep a tighter process where everyone is working to a goal that everyone agrees on.

    Pros

    Incredible team of people who are super committed to the mission. Worthy mission with the rare blend of worthwhile and big opportunity.

    Cons

    Things change a lot as requires. This is more a comment on the stage than the company. Mgmt has a good track record of being transparent with changes and rationale.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let the culture go as you scale. Tie to formalize a few practices currently done informally.

    Pros

    The team here is committed to the greater goal of reducing environmental waste through smarter sharing - everyone is so fun to work with and so very talented. There is a great work-life balance!

    Cons

    It's a startup - you need to define your role and support the company through it while adapting to changes, so it's not for everyone.

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

    Pros

    Yerdle is a combination of 2 things: a product that is incredibly interesting, complex and fun to work on, and a group of people who are super talented, values-driven, authentic and hilarious. When I go to work I feel like I'm spending my day with friends, but friends I deeply respect, trust and am in awe of professionally. Also - it's such a privilege to work on an environmental mission. Very few tech companies have the opportunity to drive massive impact around resource consumption, waste, energy, and consumer behavior. All things being equal -- why build another photo-sharing app when you can change the world for better?

    Cons

    You have to be very responsible for your area and sometimes you might not get all the support you could want... But that's how startups are. We're in a resource-constrained environment and you have to drive your results with the tools you have and you own ingenuity. I personally love that but some people might want more support, resources and structure.

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

    Pros

    The goal of transforming the way people shop is a great technical, creative, and behavioral-change challenge. I love feeling a part of something so revolutionary and important. The team is stellar and the work environment is the right balance of fun and determination.

    Cons

    It's a start-up so things can feel chaotic now and again, but that's the nature of the beast.

    Pros

    The mission is incredible. The people are even more incredible. The community is stellar. The case for reuse is indisputable. I have worked everywhere and I want Yerdle to win.

    Cons

    Location is 1 mile by foot from BART. Only sorry everyone I Iove professionally doesn't work here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the incredible work, pace of innovation, and visionary ways.
