    I worked at Good Eggs full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get to pick your own schedule which can be from 9 AM to 9 PM. Decent compensation for a fairly easy job. They provide complimentary meals while you work. They also offer paid time off for part time/hourly employees. Overall I think it is a good opportunity and you can make more money than doordash/caviar and have a weekly schedule.

    Cons

    Sometimes dispatch can be disorganized. Some of the routes (Downtown SF, Tenderloin) are more difficult than others. Some of the company vehicles are old and have issues. And sometimes you will have to use your own car, which adds wear and tear. Also if they are behind schedule, you could be driving until 10:30 PM or later.

    Advice to Management

    Try to focus on organization. An automatic text when drivers are assigned a route would be nice instead of having to check. Also a notification when the route is ready would be good and relieve some of the work of dispatch. Figuring out a way to order the boxes in Shipping would cut driver loading times. Also live updating the delivery order when running late could increase on time arrivals when running behind because of pick or traffic.

    I have been working at Good Eggs part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free lunch daily, food give away, & chill environment.

    Cons

    No clear path for progression. I have yet to have an actual sit down with my manager for a check in. Instead I have received 2 emails with my stats, and have been urged to ask questions if I am unsure of anything. An initial explanation of stat break down, etc. would have been nice.

    Advice to Management

    Some people prefer one on one sit downs with management, instead of being emailed regarding performance.

    Freedom to take time off and a very flexible management team.

    Pros

    * Mission-driven company; a rare opportunity to work on an actually impactful problem.
    * The family-style daily lunches are amazing. I've expanded my palette so much since working here.
    * Incredible growth opportunities for some roles. GE loves to hire internally and many folks have moved to first-time management roles here.
    * Some of the very nicest, most grounded, and communicative people I've ever worked with. There are no big egos here; everyone just wants to do great work together.

    Cons

    * Product strategy decisions are sometimes made at short notice
    * Location is remote

    Advice to Management

    * Our food and company values are really special; let's never lose sight of them.

    Pros

    Great perks
    Fun work environment
    Exciting mission

    Cons

    Putting profit before employees
    Little to no warning before big changes in company

    Advice to Management

    Take a little more time to interact with your employees
    Don't fire roomfuls of people right before a company-wide meeting

    I have been working at Good Eggs full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    * Best people I've ever worked with - a genuinely caring and dedicated bunch of individuals. I can honestly say my communication skills at work and just base empathy as a human have both markedly improved since working here.

    * Consistent mentorship and feedback from my manager. I've learned competencies here that will help me for the rest of my career.

    * It's not a tech driven company and not a unicorn. Everything we build has meaning and purpose. We don't grow just for the sake of growing.

    * Working at a company that is mission driven and knowing your work makes an impact.

    Cons

    * Location is pretty out of the way (in the bay view)

    * Product could get better at setting long term strategy.

    * It's not a tech driven company - some days my engineering projects are not the most exciting. (Although I think this is true everywhere)

    Advice to Management

    * dont lose sight of the mission and impact as we grow - keep helping producers top of mind and make sure that line of impact is clear to employees.
    * work on the product development process and on the long term strategy. Figure out where we want to be in 5 years. Identify problems before jumping to solutions. Test everything.

    Pros

    Your teammates, great vendors and partners, vibrant work energy at work, fast-paced

    Cons

    At that time, lack of experience plagued the company and forced several hub/office closures. Management went under a transformation and brought in more experienced people in the grocery industry. It appears the company is going through a turnaround.

    Advice to Management

    In times of fast growth, develop a clear defined strategy along company values.
