    Pros

    flexible hours, work life balance

    Cons

    Was sexually harassed by a member of the legal team, who used power position to intimidate me from speaking about it.

    I worked at Credit Karma full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The kind people at CK. Usually not the ones getting recognition.

    Cons

    The sniveling, groveling, and slimy individuals found in middle management. The chief people officer, Karen re-incarnate Colleen. The chief jester Joe and the untalented minstrel Greg. A CEO either completely deluded or outright nasty. Its future in social credit scoring. The dishonesty in the products. Looking closely, you will find out using CK products may not benefit the users at all. A company depending on people already in debt, finding ways for them to get even deeper into debt, just to profit of them may not be the place to be trusted. And this is just their basic business model. Don't get me wrong. Other companies aren't any better. CK may show a prettier facade, but it also paves the way for people's complete financial demise. In the years I worked there, I have failed to find a valid reason for this company to exist.
