    I have been working at SmartRecruiters full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Strong product and good momentum in the market. Strong teams and great collaboration across functions. Fast to improve technology, make decisions quickly and not afraid to test and learn. Flexible hours and benefits are decent for a small company.

    Cons

    For a hiring tech company, we should be setting the example of the concepts we preach, but the company is too busy selling the product to stop and take some time to appreciate and focus on its own employees. Most of the employees are remote so there is a less of tangible culture in the offices.

    I worked at SmartRecruiters full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazing company culture and everyone is like family. Company plans fun happy hours and activities every month. They want to make sure you are happy working there. Catered meals, flexible work from home hours and unlimited PTO is a major plus to help with work life balance. Management is very nice and easy to talk to if you have a problem. They have the mindset of "we succeed together and we fail together" so it is never one persons fault if something goes wrong or something goes exceedingly well.

    Cons

    There aren't very many negative things to say about SmartRecruiters.

    Cons

    Fiscally conservative, and that's often wise, but the product doesn't rely on VC money as much as others in our space do, we grow with the growth of our revenue, which has been fairly good.
