Pros: StreetShares is in rapid growth mode - very exciting and lots of opportunity. It is a mission driven organization - veteran founded, lots of veteran employees (not required for employment). In a very interesting lending space with lots of room to be a really great company making a difference. The people are lovely and committed to the company and executing on their duties. The founders are accessible to everyone and realistic about what it means to be at this stage in an organization. They are dedicated to keeping StreetShares successful.
Cons: If you are coming from a heavy corporate culture, it can be a shock. Be sure you are asking the right questions when you interview. I feel like I did but I can see how their would be a lot of assumptions about process and the organization that are just different in this environment. Benefits (such as health insurance premium paid by employee) is also not corporate. They are acceptable but not the industry best. Maternity leave doesn't kick in as a benefit until a year of employment.
