    I have been working at Locale full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    From the product & services, to the team, this group of people puts their heart in what they do. Working alongside them has brought me great pride. Locale knows how to support its employees to the max. Happy empolyees=happy customers.

    Cons

    The learning curve can be challenging, but exciting. Locale is building something new and they look to every team member for collaboration and inspiration.

    I have been working at Locale full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I would say my top "pro" is how open the team is to exploring suggestions (from all levels) so you never feel stuck in having to do a task or project the same way it was done before. You can also introduce side projects to cultivate aspects of your career growth. There is tons of experience to gain in doing something new for the first time and with the culture created and the team available, there are great leaders to work with and learn with in all departments.

    Cons

    The flip side of not being attached to a set way of doing something means things can get "lost in the sauce" and other teams may prioritize their tasks differently so it's super important to be detail-oriented and communicate exactly what you need in any given task or project.

    I have been working at Locale full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have loved every moment working for Locale. I was becoming increasingly frustrated working in a traditional hospitality environment and finding Locale was a breath of fresh air. This is a company that listens to ideas and is willing to try them out. There is no, "that's the way it's always been done". Having your ideas not only listened to, but implemented as well is the most rewarding thing I've ever experienced in the work place. The people that work for Locale are truly incredible and there is no shortage of talent.

    Cons

    I honestly have no complaints at this time.

    I worked at Locale full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexibility to work from home, casual office.

    Cons

    Disorganized, lacked communication, and direction. When issues were raised instead of fixing them, leadership said, "it's the nature of a startup".

    I have been working at Locale full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The team is small and we all work together from line staff to superior.

    Cons

    So far I could not say there is any, because we are a unique team.
