Former Employee - Sourcer

I worked at Thumbtack full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

The team I worked with was phenomenal. I learned so much while working here and decided my career path. The culinary staff, the friendships, the WPX team, the awesome office, etc.

Cons

After a lot of reflection, I’m grateful for the knowledge I received while being at Thumbtack. That being said, I should be much further in my career than I am. They stunted my growth, they played... favorites, and HR didn’t protect us. We weren’t paid to industry standards. Management, before I was laid off, was getting to a better point, but prior to that management was awful. They played favorites and had hidden agendas. They threw people under the bus, and sometime the people they threw got let go for “performance.” Many of the people in leadership positions should have NEVER been in leadership positions. I was taken for granted, my skills were taken for granted, my entire team was taken for granted and it hurts me to my core. I gave you two stars because I love what Thumbtack is doing to help businesses. I will continue to use Thumbtack, but I do NOT recommend working for a company who has hidden agendas, who lacks transparency, and who lays off 250 employees without batting an eye. They gave us the assumption we’d be safe and that was unfair and unethical.

Advice to Management

Don’t promote people who have gained your favoritism. Promote people who are capable to do the job. Give people fair and industry standard pay. Stop brown nosing. When you say you’re transparent,... then continue to be transparent. When you say you care for your employees, actually care for your employees. Don’t say something and then do the opposite.
