    Cons

    There is not a playbook with a high degree of structure clearly defined...but is that really a con? To some people yes. It's also just a reality of start ups and can be fun if you're open and flexible.

    Let's grow!

    I have been working at Vroom full-time

    Pros

    Smart people, nice office, and a product that has a lot of potential.

    Cons

    Most of leadership lives in another state and are rarely seen in the office, which leads to no one else showing up. The company does not believe in investing in technology or investing in hard workers with a vision. Leadership is one giant echo chamber that refuses to see anything wrong with the company amongst all of the negative reviews, sinking sales, and talent leaving the company.

    Don’t believe the use of the term “startup” as an excuse for not having a plan, structure, vision, or missed goals. The company has been around since 2014 and has received hundreds of millions of funding from private equity firms- this is hardly a startup.

    The company also touts “experimentation”. This is simply not true, the company has not run a single A/B test. If you interview, ask what the last A/B test was and what was learned from it.
