Really enjoying my time here. Everyone that works here is a pleasure to work with and I love the atmosphere. We're doing great things here and I'm proud to be a part of it.

Avoid this place like the plague
IT Specialist (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAJanuary 12, 2019
There is a reason they are constantly hiring for the same positions, it is because the company sucks, the management sucks, they have no vision, no transparency, employees are treated like animals. God knows if they can even attract good talent anymore because the HR department is so inept. It's amazing they are still in business.
Pros
short drive from home
Cons
poor management

Challenging, Personally Rewarding Dream Job
Attorney (Current Employee) –  Irvine, CAJanuary 7, 2019
After reading these reviews from disgruntled former employees, I had to pipe up to offer the perspective of a current employee (and, no, I wasn't asked to provide this review).

Yes, this is a fast-paced work environment. You aren't going to be twiddling your thumbs surfing Instagram (unless you're in a different department with a much cooler job than mine that involves excessive use of the word Influencer).

Yes, sometimes people hear the "Weed" in Weedmaps and think they're coming here to get stoned all day. Those people don't last long then complain that they were bamboozled. They don't realize it was their own misconception that bamboozled them. We are a tech company with a zealous eye on growth. If you treat work like a house party (or expect excessive hand-holding), you're not going to last long.

The great thing is that, while there seems to always be some portion of people who fall into the "won't last long" category, the people who remain are extraordinary colleagues. We've brought in a number of C-Suite executives in the past couple of years, and, as a whole, they are really hitting their stride. The teams they have developed are filled with people - both "old guard" and "new guard" - who understand the relevant industries (tech and cannabis), believe in pushing for open markets, and are willing to work hard to make that happen.

The legal work I see on a day-to-day basis is the chocolate ganache icing on my fantasy birthday cake that is working at Weedmaps (that was a stretch, stay with me now). Take every issue faced by a company with a sizeable employee
  more... base and complex corporate structure, then add the concept of "cannabis" and it instantly becomes a novel issue. For me, this is a phenomenal job I honestly can't fathom leaving.  less
Pros
Interesting work; free lunches; $0 cost healthcare/dental/vision; etc.

Toxic and Misogynistic Leadership
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAOctober 3, 2018
Terrible place to work that is full of illegal activities and misconduct. Leadership has no idea what it’s doing and they could care less about any of their employees.

Exciting Industry, Tough Company
Marketing (Current Employee) –  Irvine, CAJune 20, 2018
It's a new and exciting industry, and the company is very green. If you are seasoned in your career it could be a fun place to challenge yourself. If you are ambitious and looking to learn, may not be the place for you.

No Work/Life Balance
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAJune 13, 2018
Be prepared to work 10-11 hour days and still have people throw back-handed insults when you clock out. Mandatory Saturdays, on top of being strongly encouraged to come in other weekends as well.

Sales commissions are setup to be top heavy, grunts get thrown under the bus and shuffled in and out of the department on a MONTHLY (read: 60-90 days) basis.

Also be ready to take the brunt of blame for any and all issues (be they administrative/legal/technical/otherwise) - management will "have your back" but will only be there to use you as a meat shield when the shooting starts.


Also a resume killer - turns out Cannabis is still not cool in 2018.


On the plus - free lunches/snacks/drinks are always provided. Benefits are decent, and the company does take care of maternity/paternity better than most. Coworkers and team members are always there to help - even if their hands are often tied.
Pros
Free Lunches, Relaxed Dress Code/Environment, Friendly Coworkers
Cons
Long Hours/Weekends, Lack of Career Path

New and exciting work environment
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAMay 22, 2018
Be prepared to work hard and receive great benefits for it. Some days push 12 hours and you are required to work at least 1 Saturday a month, but are encouraged to come in every Saturday making it a very long work week. But if you stick with it, it will pay off.
Pros
catered lunches

Poisonous
Creative (Current Employee) –  Irvine, CAMay 19, 2018
Toxic environment that doesn't allow for creativity or clear communication. Its a shark tank of silicone valley startup transplants. Cannabis is the new gold rush, but not at weedmaps.
Pros
Free Lunches and great insurance
Cons
Toxic work enviroment
