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

    Pros

    BA has been around for a few years and is a publicly traded org on nasdaq (APRN) however that didn’t stop the org from having the closely knit startup vibe. The people that work there are serious about their craft. Work hard play hard. Plenty of room for growth.. there are many challenges to figure out in this space. Perfect for an engineer!

    Cons

    The good news is the food is *very* fresh, deliveries are on time, but occasionally you’ll get a busted gel pack or leaky soy sauce in your knick knacks. Not the delivery guys/gals fault... the outside of the box is unscathed. Employees are definitely subscribers to the service and have these issues also, but aren’t delivering innovative resolutions to those issues fast enough. Other food related delivery startups are iterating faster and hitting higher customer satisfaction ratings. Their churn is also higher but they can afford it. To be clear. Love this company. THE FOOD IS SUPER FRESH. I’m still a subscriber today. But they need great talent like you! If you want to help solve really cool problems.. work there! Highly recommend.

    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.
