      I have been working at Retrofit

      Pros

      The passion for helping clients, and the focus and hard work to ensure our customers are also pleased. There is also lots of recognition of the staff which is appreciated!

      Cons

      I can’t really think of any cons but Glassdoor has a 20 word minimum so I need to fill this space.

      I worked at Retrofit

      Pros

      not enough here to say something about.

      Cons

      startup environment, highly disorganized. CEO was very uneducated in technology but touted that she knew it all. understood very little. infrastructure was put together haphazardly. the lack of a knowledgeable technologist at the helm will hurt this company significantly.

      Advice to Management

      CEO is highly unprofessional and not seasoned enough. Can't lead if one doesn't understand the product well enough. oversold with promises.

      Pros

      Retrofit provides truly personalized and effective weight management and disease prevention solutions. And, is a company that genuinely cares about "employee happiness" and going above and beyond to help its clients. Love the summer hours too- shut down Fridays at 12:30 pm local time!

      Cons

      Lots of competition, but that's ok . . . Our suite of solutions rocks!

      I have been working at Retrofit full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      I have never worked for a company that is so committed to helping others. I feel blessed everyday that I get to work with such AMAZING (I mean truly amazing) people while serving others.... and most importantly have the flexibility to take care of my myself and my family.

      Cons

      I personally love the start up environment, but I know its not for everyone. It is very busy in a good way.

      Advice to Management

      Thank you for being wonderful leaders and mentors. You may not hear it everyday, but you are so appreciated.

      I worked at Retrofit full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      - Working remotely is wonderful for work/life balance. - Most people are friendly and want the best for others. - The CEO genuinely cares about the employees and the product. - Treadmills in office. - Leadership and others promote healthy living. - The product has a positive impact on lives. - Focus is on innovation.

      Cons

      - There are some systemic issues with product strategy and development. They can't afford to stumble so often in this department if they intend to meet the company's high expectations. - Thinking about innovation is a really good thing, but there needs to be better balance between noodling dreams and creating product, given their resources. - Leadership feels a little too corporate under their startup costumes. -...

      Advice to Management

      - Reset your tech expectations to meet your budget and your resources. "Startup" means pushing the envelope, not shoving too much in the envelope until it breaks. Don't make promises to investors or each other that aren't possible given the cards you have in your hand, because it will keep setting people up to fail. If you want to meet big technology/data/product goals, hire enough people and listen to them. You're going...

      Pros

      Great culture, great people, great work environment. Employees care and respect each other. Good benefits. Inspiring Sr. Management. Provides opportunities for research and publication. Proactively seeks employee opinions/suggestions to improve work environment. Fully utilizes the remote work benefits. Highly engaged and inspiring Medical Advisory Board.

      Cons

      Lack of resources (i.e., head count) makes work challenging, though this is normal in any startup environment. Sometimes competing priorities can be challenging to meet deadlines.

      I have been working at Retrofit

      Pros

      Incredibly friendly atmosphere, both in the office and via video conference (not everyone works in Chicago). All employees strive to do the best they can to help Retrofit become a top competitor within the diabetes prevention and healthcare field. It's admirable how dedicated everyone is to bettering Retrofit, but also how proud they are of the validity of their product. All of the employees (myself included) believe...

      Cons

      Sometimes we talk through topics so extensively that we take up time we could be using to start/work on the project. Granted, I have not been part of the team for long, but from a semi-new perspective, it seems that we try to make sure we've addressed each topic/issue from every angle, but that can hold companies back if it happens too often. I don't think it happens now, but it could in the future once the company grows.

      I have been working at Retrofit

      Pros

      I absolutely love working here and very honestly look forward to getting to the office in the morning. The culture in the office life is top tier; the principles, values, and mission of the company is something I wholeheartedly rally behind. I am in love with this job!

      Cons

      There are none. Honestly. I spent my summer working for Retrofit as a Marketing and Sales intern and didn't want to leave.

      Advice to Management

      Keep on keeping on! This company has so much potential and is growing so well and so quickly. I cannot wait to see what Retrofit has in store for us in the coming years.

      Pros

      Amazing team, great leadership team, clear vision and congruent execution. Innovation and creativity are key ingredients and it is fertile ground to grow and explore the future.

      Cons

      As a startup, many ups and downs related to funding. The investors community do not seem to understand the great pivot from b2c to b2b. This creates more stress.

      Advice to Management

      Keep the focus and do not lose touch with the mission of this company. Do not let setbacks get in the way of realizing this vision. Continue to grow organically and harness the strengths of the workforce.
