    I have been working at Prosper.com full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good values and work culture. Lots of recession proofing over last few years means company will be stronger after COVID-19 recession. Generally starting to focus on quality over speed as there is a reasonable amount of tech debt that needs to be reclaimed. CEO & CFO has been very engaged and communicating well during COVID. Expecting full salary to be returned in next 6 months (much needed).

    Cons

    COVID-19 pay cuts (currently 15% and no 401k match). A few too many middle managers. Annual bonus should be every 6 monthly.

    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Prosper.com for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Love the mission of the company. Volunteer events, cultural events, all the free snacks and beverages, and the summer and holiday events

    Cons

    CEO went from approachable to cold and unapproachable which was a disappointment. I felt used in a way by my manager and not treated fairly. And when heavy work needed to be done, suddenly my manager would be missing? No where to be found, but expected the credit. I felt like a micro managed atmosphere.
