    Pros

    - A small, nimble team that's always happy to experiment and try new things, and a management that wants us to learn and become better at our jobs. Ideas and innovation are welcome here. Success is rewarded, and failures are recognized as an opportunity to learn and get better. - In terms of the team- everyone on the team has a great sense of humor and we all get along like a house on fire, bouncing ideas off... each other and feeding off all that creative energy. - We also get a ton of amazing perks, including free gym membership at Equinox, commuter benefits, free lunches, a dizzying array of snacks, a low deductible health insurance plan, happy hours, company dinners at Michelin starred and James Beard award-winning restaurants... the list is endless!

    Cons

    Can't really think of any 'cons' that significantly affect my life. Of course, there are minor irritations, but they tend to be almost immediately addressed by colleagues or my managers due to open communication between all of us. On a personal note- the long commute from central New Jersey is tiring, but that has nothing to do with the organization - it is my choice to live so far away from the city.

    Pros

    - People are taken care of here–comprehensively. From the training you receive to be effective in your role to the flexibility of unlimited PTO and benefit options, the company pays attention to both professional and personal needs. - Recent acquisition by LendingTree could have gone far worse than it did - no one was laid off, though some chose to move on. VP has retained many of the benefits of being a small... startup while gaining opportunities to synergize with other properties in the LT family.

    Cons

    - Integration with LendingTree has had its share of roadblocks and frustrating moments. Cooperation among the various branches of the business could use a lot of improvement. - Persistent investment of resources in a single product team poses challenges to the morale of those not involved in work on that team. Company morale could benefit from better messaging on why other teams still matter and what the future... holds.
