    I worked at Thumbtack full-time

    Pros

    - Authentic CEO who knows how to take care of people and also make tough business decisions (not one of the bombastic sociopaths you typically find in that role) - Best culinary team in the Bay Area tech scene - Almost all coworkers are nice to work with and worthy of making personal connections with - Excellent work-life balance. You can make time for life outside work and take generous time off to recharge, travel etc - Great office location in SF

    Cons

    - Frequent major product changes on professionals side make it confusing for both customers and employees - Slower revenue growth than desired - Rank-and-file need more confidence on path to long term success - Good but not magical product; low brand awareness

    Advice to Management

    - Protect great culture - Work on simplifying professionals product experience - Work on building employee confidence on achieving long term goals - Hire more experienced people (balance skewed too junior) - Invest more time on building brand awareness

    I have been working at Thumbtack full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I joined Thumbtack as a new grad recently and my experience has been awesome so far. I have interned at larger companies but Thumbtack has the right size for me to take on important tasks and make an impact. People here are extremely nice and talented and I have grown so much technically and professionally by working with the awesome people. I am really happy about what Thumbtack has helped me achieve during these couple of months out of college.

    Cons

    As a startup that is trying to figure out the right way to go, we make changes every day. Therefore we accumulate some tech debt sometimes.
