- Good reward system, - Team work: Productive work atmosphere among co-workers, - No need to be politically correct. As a sales rep you can be yourself. - Good school for newbies in corporate... sales. - You get help from your manager to make sure you reach your goal. - You will get the feeling that you get to impact your environment around you. Challenging but rewarding job. - I personaly think that Groupon is a huge stepping stone in my career generally.
- Heavy workload to reach your goal - You constantly need to renew yourself. You cannot rely on your past achievements. Working at Groupon is a marathon not a sprint.

Shopify is at the top of the Canadian technology scene. Smart, performance oriented, crazy sustained growth means you will see things you can’t see anywhere else. This is how the big companies you... know about happened and it’s happening to a Canadian company. You can help. Wins matter in this business and Shopify is winning.
Pace and growth rate mean even though the company has the best of intentions, often challenges happen because no one has solved issues yet. Sometimes it’s fun being in the rocket but sometimes the... g-forces can get you.
Advice to Management
Company values are highly individualistic and while that feels great for a while eventually a collective, team oriented perspective provides more meaning to people. May need a pivot to that over time.... Otherwise...thanks. 👍
