Former Employee - Product

I worked at Thumbtack full-time for more than a year

Pros

The in-house culinary team (though they were laid off) The in-house employee resource group leads (though they were laid off)

Cons

Unfortunately, Thumbtack laid off about 250 people. Yes, that’s happening everywhere and it was a necessary business decision, but the way it was delivered was not good. Employees were left... scrambling to call their managers and peers trying to figure out what next steps were after being let go. Computers were shut off within minutes (we weren’t told they would be cutoff so quickly, no time for goodbyes) and we barely got 3 weeks of pay and about 4 weeks of health insurance. So many teams, and we’re given absolutely zero details on who they decided to cut. Even executives and long-tenured employees CHOSE to leave alongside those layed-off. I’m not even sure if there’s a recruiting team there anymore but I imagine Thumbtack is no longer a “best workplace”.

Advice to Management

They know what they should’ve done, yet they made the decisions they made anyway. Even though you asked employees to sign non-disparage agreements, we will not lie to potential employees about our... experience.
