      Pros

      - Lots of opportunity for growth, your voice will be heard regardless of position, trusted to lead important projects early on in your career - Fun place and good working environment, friendly coworkers, casual dress code, free food and snacks - Good work life balance, doesn't matter how early or how late your arrive as long as your work is getting done - Best IT support of any company I have worked for, need new hardware or equipment just ask - Great building/office space, standing desks, in the heart of Kendall Square - New leadership have been hired in the past year, very competent and will certainly help the company to continue growing - Solid pay in line with market, great benefits and unlimited PTO

      Cons

      - Growing pains of a start up, processes need work and sometimes there is no process at all and you might need to be the one who creates it - Depending on the team but it's hard to disconnect from work, getting an email or slack message after hours or on the weekend is not unusual - The company wants to be a market place for insurance to help consumers, but the day to day work seems disconnected from that vision, instead we're a lead generator - Some of the comments from consumers online describe the company as a "scam", not a pleasant things to read if you want to work for a company with a mission

      Pros

      Great Co-workers - Typical young, tech company, employees typically hang out outside of work. Everyone is friendly and eager to help with issues Great Benefits - Health and dental 100% paid for by company, Great 401K with matching, Commuter benefits subsidized parking or free T pass. Fun Culture - lots sponsored of events for employees to attend outside of work Lots of Free Food - Free lunch once a week, free snacks in office, beer and coffee on tap Great Location - Right near Kendall and Central Great Work Life Balance and interesting work.

      Cons

      Young management team - Typical of all relatively new tech companies where things are moving fast and people are promoted really young. This is being fixed; in the last few months there have been a bunch of senior people hired and I am excited to see where they can make an impact

      Pros

      Extremely fast-paced and competitive work place, exceptional pay and commission structure. If you are looking for a company in the Pre-IPO stage that offers great benefits and pays their employees well, EverQuote is definitely the place for you. Fantastic work-life balance, unlimited PTO and many opportunities to work from the road. Every in employee in the company from the BDR's to the CEO are extremely accessible and open to any suggestions or comments. 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for a profession in sales.

      Cons

      Position hierarchy is fairly flat, however if you produce in your current position you will get raises and promotions, so the overall financial compensation for each position offsets the flat structure.

      Pros

      I joined everquote as an engineer recently and it’s been a delightful experience. The people are all brilliant and super friendly. Everyone is willing to help out whenever needed. The work life balance so far seems great, no one in the company seems burned out.

      Cons

      As with most fast paced mid stage startups, documentation and organization is not always the top priority so it can take some time to get through code.

      Pros

      -Strong data-driven analytical culture where you are surrounded by driven, intelligent people. -Great work/life balance where results are important but in the context of sustainability -Exciting to have ownership as a part of a great growth story, where it's easy to see how changes you make directly impact the bottom line, and employees are empowered to make decisions

      Cons

      -Typical for any fast growing company, we are still figuring out a lot of internal processes and have frequent re-orgs (though generally all changes are in the right direction)
