What is health insurance like at Boostability?

Pros

The people on my team are excellent, and that’s been true across multiple teams. I love the people I work with directly, and right now, I love my direct manager as well. The benefits aren’t too bad actually, and the company has a really good HSA match if you are paying for insurance Remote work is also a plus

Cons

The company hired someone to see if we were being paid fairly and concluded that we are, claiming that since we’re not a “tech company” they can’t pay us like tech companies. He never actually could define what kind of company we are, and the number of complaints about pay point to him being wrong about the fairness for what the company asks of us. The amount Boost pays is not enough to raise a family or buy a house on—I’m baffled by how many parents work here and how some people are able to buy houses. Consistently, the people who are most happy about the company just got out of food/retail—but many of the job postings ask for a bachelor’s degree (although that is shifting due to pushback). I suppose that could be a pro: it’s better than food service

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees! Rather than raising starting wages, try to retain your current employees so you’re not always training, always backfilling, and always understaffed—driving more people away because the amount of work we need to do to make up for it doesn’t make sense with what we’re paid.

Does Boostability offer sponsored degrees?

Pros

Boostability does a lot to make people feel included and has a lot of activities — if you go into the office.

Cons

The pay for fulfillment is awful. We literally create the deliverable product for the client, but make the least pay at the company. Boostability is a tech company that claims not to be so that they don't have to pay us tech company prices. The only other thing it could be is a marketing firm, which would also pay better than they do. Benefits package sounds good on the surface, but the cheaper health plan still has a $1.5k deductible for a single person. If you have health problems, that isn't going to cut it at our pay rate.

Advice to Management

Provide fulfillment with pay that will actually reflect what they do for the company. Don't tout "merit-based raises" when the raises are no more than 50 cents an hour with phenomenal performance.

Does Boostability offer vision insurance?

Pros

Free drinks Some nice people Decent location

Cons

Low pay Rude manager Shaky legality Mind numbing work

Advice to Management

If you need to use proxies to keep from getting blocked then you're probably doing something wrong. Writing comments as a "non-professional" ends up filling the internet with fake, useless content. Helping small businesses while spreading nonsense across the internet with fake accounts doesn't sound like a moral mission. One of your clients was actually selling research chemicals, grey area drugs that are pumped out of labs in China to dodge the DEA.

Free drinks
