    I worked at Modsy part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    work from home position, great power points available to learn the job quickly

    Cons

    I worked for Modsy for a year and when I began it was like a dream job because it was super flexible and the pay per room felt worth it. About 4 months in, constant changes started happening. They had us sign 3 different contracts in less than a years time and each contract demanded more work load, less flexibility, and way less pay. Management would hold online zoom meetings prior to these drastic contract changes ,but would literally ignore the concerns and questions of everyone in the chat. In my last month there, this position went from working whatever schedule I wanted with a requirement of 15 minimum hours a week to a pay cut of $10 per room and a minimum of 30 hours per week. Because of the large pay cut, management starting hosting zoom meetings to learn how to "design faster." They suggested things like copying rooms (piece by piece) off Pinterest. They suggested not thinking about your designs, just selecting whatever and fast. I started feeling like a robot who tried to whip up styled rooms as fast as I could get a decent pay. This was insulting to someone who has a degree in interior design because this is not true design.

    Pros

    Modsy is filled with a lot of really talented people that are easy to get along with. The engineering team gets to work on a lot of fascinating problems on the cutting edge of technology in computer vision, rendering, machine learning, etc. I believe strongly in the capability and vision of our leadership team.

    Cons

    The cons of startup life in general- having been here 2+ years, you experience more ups and downs than you might at a bigger company.
