      Pros

      Overall: -Rewarding, challenging, and impactful work. Solving interesting problems on the cutting edge of AI/ML technology - Work with tremendously smart people - Thorough and hardened development methodology and business processes - High value on continued education and growth mentality. Programs and bonuses to back it up. - The core technology is unbeatable. There is a reason no one else can compete in this space. - Competitive compensation package In this role: - You will learn a lot - You will have a wide array of experience and exposure. Part-time project manager, product manager, customer success lead, account strategist, technical lead

      Cons

      - Company culture is bad, jaded and cynical. - Micro-management is common. Comes down from the very top. Frequently create bottlenecks - Zero remote flexibility. Must take PTO if you are not in the office even if you are working. No exceptions, even during COVID. - No work life balance. Prideful attitude towards working 70 hour weeks/working weekends/etc.

      Great Place to Work!

      Sep 28, 2021 - Forward Deployed Engineer in Washington, DC

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Straightforward onboarding process - Great 2 week training program for technical roles - Quickly start contributing impact through application development rotation over weeks 3 through 8 - A bunch of internal demos/initiatives to keep everyone engaged (even for services/customer-facing roles)

      Cons

      Stemming from CEO's views on remote work, the vibes around asking for flexibility in work location are very awkward (even if only asking for a single day). Middle management seems to be okay with a little remote work, but they don't want to say anything concrete that could make them look poorly from the senior leaders/C suite's POV.

      Intense, fast-paced, highly rewarding

      Sep 13, 2021 - User Experience Designer 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Working at C3 is a uniquely rewarding experience. The company is relatively small so each employee working in product is exposed to a high variety of problem spaces across industries. In each of these fields, the team behind the product aims to solve problems that haven't been solved before. It's really rewarding knowing you might be setting a precedent for future problem solvers per industry. The work comes at an intense pace, but any organized individual with a desire to work hard should be able to handle it. And management is conscious of overload if one's bandwidth is clearly communicated. Another rewarding aspect of the company is an ability to shape the processes that define it. Given its relatively small size and exponentially growing employee base, there are huge opportunities for anyone to make suggestions as to how teams and processes should scale and evolve. Every employee who wants to has the ability to shape the company, and is involved in the hiring process/setting criteria for hiring. I've seen some comments recently alluding to the higher-ups inflexibility in management or decision making. I have found the opposite to be true; any idea, regardless of its holder's seniority, can be challenged and is encouraged to be challenged with adequate information to back it up with. My intuition tells me these reviews were posted by former employees who shy away from challenging ideas and defending their own views in a public setting in general. If you present well-defended convictions confidently, you will be rewarded and your potential for growth as an employee is enormous.

      Cons

      Not so much of a con, more of a lesson; working at a small company that moves quickly requires a huge amount of agility. Meaning, you might work on something for a few months that ends up getting scrapped if a better direction is identified. This might frustrate those who are married to their previous work. Personally I believe that every amount of work done contributes to learning, shaping perspective, and yields re-usable work for the future. But it took some frustration early on to get to this insight.

      A team of exceptional individuals doing inspiring, meaningful work.

      Sep 14, 2021 - Vice President, Product Design in Redwood City, CA

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      C3 AI is an exceptional team of highly-intelligent, ambitious individuals, working together to solve incredibly complex problems in Finance, Healthcare, Manufacturing, Energy and Defense.

      Cons

      C3 AI solves long-standing business problems, using entirely new approaches and cutting edge technologies. The work is fast-paced, highly-complex and extremely challenging. It's not for everyone. That being said, high-performance, self-motivated individuals who thrive on making a difference will do very well.

      2.5 stars for a company at an interesting phase of development

      Sep 15, 2021 - Engineer in Redwood City, CA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      * CEO has vision * smart colleagues who are often happy to share knowledge * real-world problems and applications from big-name companies that provide employees interesting things to do

      Cons

      * poorly managed (from the CEO, whose vision sometimes bears little resemblance to reality, on downwards) * culture of avoiding responsibility * lack of flexibility (no work from home as already noted in many reviews, but also no childcare, minimum legal parental leave, subtle and less-subtle discouragement of WLB) *a lot of hiring for "culture fit", instead of hiring for diversity of thought
