    I worked at Blue Apron full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There are some amazing people in leadership and hard working associates. The organization is also great at promoting in house.

    Cons

    Senior leaders lack experience and ability to lead an organization with certainty. Lack of training and structure. Organization has lost it's personal touch due to the rapidly growing number of associates and unreasonably hiring rate.

    "Dishonest, Disjointed, Delusional - Stay far far away!"

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Blue Apron full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    My peers were great to work with. Unlimited PTO (how they can afford that, I have no idea), decent office location so the commute was easy.

    Cons

    The company as a whole was incredibly dishonest. They would say one thing and do another. Management has a nasty habit of taking absolutely no responsibility for their shortcomings and manages to throw their subordinates under the bus whenever a project would take longer to complete while soaking up all the praise when things were successful. The engineers who worked their behinds off to get projects finished managed themselves and yet, the managers who pretty much phone it in (all the while watching Overwatch tournaments on their iPads instead of doing real work) walked around with the audacity to speak with authority on the abilities of the engineers. People in positions of power have absolutely no right being there. HR is a joke. They are glorified middleman working in tandem with the status quo. They’re incredibly flippant whenever serious ethical problems (i.e.; racism, sexism, favoritism, misconduct, etc) were presented to them and will lie and stall until they came up with some sort of story that would work for them. Blue Apron is a sad startup that never got its footing and too stubborn to call it quits.

    I worked at Blue Apron full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good pay, beautiful building, from the interviews this role seemed like an awesome opportunity.

    Cons

    Long hours / no structure / department is run by leadership with no real HR experience and the ones who are onsite do no provide Adequate or any training any type. It’s a sink or swim set-up.
