Pros: free lunches, lots of beer, companywide activities
Cons: slow development cycle, low pay, little room for advancement
Work some, play harder should be the motto. With a rather slow development process comes a lot of waiting. Otherwise, uShip has a strong business model that is great for folks early in their career to get their feet wet. uShip shouldn't be running a great minor league team but has some trouble retaining a lot of hires. The biggest curve is learning the shipping industry. However, uShip has a knack for hiring some really smart and great people. The culture is strong in that there's still a vibe of the company being small. With a little bit more organization and attention to prioritization, this would be one of the best places to work in Austin. But for now, it's not a bad place to get your feet wet or coast if your attention is on other endeavors.
