An Insider's view of Chewy

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

It's refreshing being a part of a team dedicated to getting the job done, without quilting you into extra hours. While we are in the retail space, we are always supportive of the team's needs. I don't feel guilty about asking for help if I'm pressed for time and need to get back to my family. The flexibility around working from home has been great
