The Company is a workhorse. Expect to work hard in an environment that is not glamorous and cash constrained.

Very good benefits; great flexibility to manage personal appointments that are only available during working hours; ability to work remotely in bad weather; associates are respectful of one and other and help out (for the most part).

    Flexibility is based on manager discretion, so it can vary between managers. I've been very lucky!

On Deck is a great place to work. Men and women are not treated differently and I feel that there is a lot of room for growth and expansion here.

Unless you are very upper leadership, I think this workplace has pretty good work-life balance, but there is no maternity policy at all.

    Flexibility is very position-dependent, not universal.

    Maybe. Depends on the position. If you're in an admin role, it's pretty dead-end; if you are higher, you have more chances to progress.

Make sure you're adequately compensated. I know men at lower levels than me, with the exact same background making 30% more. Once you're in, it's hard to get your pay adjusted.
