    Ik werk voltijd bij Off the Grid voor meer dan een jaar

    Pluspunten

    Off the Grid let’s you be yourself. You can do really cool things and contribute to a rapidly growing company. You have the opportunity to know the owner Matt and can talk to other leaders. Awesome delicious food. Like the people I work with. I like the open communication and Thursday morning all hands call.

    Minpunten

    Sometimes there’s to many changes or what feels like chaos. I think it’s growing pains. Technology is difficult.

    Keep talking and listening to us. Keep growing.

    Pluspunten

    You receive free food from the vendors Certain Markets are also rather slow so the work load is right

    Minpunten

    Supervisors aren't always helpful when needed at larger markets, no training, and they also don't give you many hours. They also mess up on the schedule quite often

    Pluspunten

    Very exciting time to work in a company that is taking things to the next level. There is ton of opportunity to grow and try new roles and responsibilities. The people are down to earth and just want to do good work. The product is dynamic and fun... who doesn't like food! The leadership team is filling out and the future direction of the company is inspiring.

    Minpunten

    The company is in transition - there has been a lot of turnover of "old guard" employees that has made for a lot of churn and confusion. There was a recent merge of two companies owned by the same owner (The Whole Cart and Off The Grid), which also created confusion around company culture and strategy. Both culture and strategy are actively being worked on right now, with investment in resources and priority to ensure...

    Keep in mind that change takes time, but trust is where to start - build trust with the employees that are committed to the future of the organization.

    Pluspunten

    Weekends off and you if you go to google you get access to the cafeterias and game room.

    Minpunten

    Management is very loose. Things change a lot and management likes to hide from employees. Management is rarely onsite with the food trucks so employees tend to just go home after there shift even if they need to speak with management. Also, they will fire you for anything once they have the idea you need to be fired. I've seen it done at least 4 times since I've been there. If your a good employee you can break the rules...

    Treat the line cooks and TS with respect and stop talking about them behind there backs. I've been in countless meetings where they berate other employees. Management is clearly the issues with this company and I truly lost so much respect for myself and the whole management team at the whole cart.

    There are a few good people that have no idea what they are doing.

    Minpunten

    Everyone else. This place of employment is a car wreck. Below are things I either heard or saw while employed there: 1. That's not my job. 2. "Yeah, we are glad _________ quit they didn't know what they were doing." 3. "We charge them extra, cause we can." 4. "There is no direction for my position." 5. "Now you can see just how unorganized we are." 6. "he sucks at his job." These are just a small fraction...

    Figure out what you are doing and how you make decisions. Never was there a time where any of us felt like you were doing either.

    August 5, 2019CEO

    Off the Grid is all about building communities (including our own-- inside OTG), and the lack of mutual respect that you mention in your review is deeply troubling to me as CEO. I accept responsibility for your experience and very much want to assure you that the type of behavior ...

    "Cool Company on the Brink"

    SterSterSterSterSter
    Huidige werknemer - Anonieme werknemer 

    Ik werk voltijd bij Off the Grid voor meer dan een jaar

    Pluspunten

    Free food. Coworkers are cool and the environment is your typical great start up environment where most people tend to be young for the most part and enthusiastic. The job is not that hard. A lot of examples of people moving up in the company.

    Minpunten

    There is a divide in the company between its different departments/divisions that are spread out around the different offices/warehouses around the bay, which definitely creates an us vs them mentality. Everyone blames everyone else and getting promoted does seem to transition into you becoming a new person to blame for things going wrong. The company is also in a weird transition phase and is trying to figure out a new...

    -There are still some passionate individuals that are fun to work with -The day-to-day benefits of working for Google are pleasant -Exciting and engaged catering clients and public keep the brand alive -There is still quite a bit of room to define how you work -Exciting and talented vendors (creators) and guests love OTG

    Minpunten

    Culture: While working at Off The Grid has its ups and downs, it is generally an exercise is slowly losing your self-respect. Practically each week is punctuated by a window dressed company-wide goodbye email for someone who has either quit or been fired. You never know who’s going next, so it’s better not to form any true relationships or bonds of trust with your coworkers. For those that you do let your guard down...

    Pluspunten

    I joined Off The Grid 2 years ago and can honestly say that it is the best company I have worked for. After feeling like I had plateaued in my previous role, I have been surrounded with smart, creative, and kind people from whom I have learned new skills and new perspectives. I am immensely proud of our products and thoroughly enjoy the collaborative relationships with my co-workers and my clients.

    Minpunten

    It's a rapidly growing and evolving start-up, for better and for worse. There's never a dull moment, but you have to be comfortable with change to succeed here.

    Everybody at the company is super lazy and leaves at 5pm on the dot

    Minpunten

    OTG is the cheapest, most poorly run company I have ever worked for. Here's why: -They're PTO sucks - you only start accruing PTO after 1 full year of working there -They only match 401k (not 100%) after 1 year of employment -No free food, even though it's a food company... -The office buildings are unsafe - there are too many wires everywhere and they are a fire hazard, and the office is in a building which...
