Current Employee - Customer Success Specialist

I have been working at Hootsuite full-time

Pros

Small company ideals with a growing big company mindset.

Cons

None that I can easily think of just yet - it's a tough time for businesses globally and with that, Hootsuite is fairing well. Good choices the leadership has made in the past has us weathering the... storm well.

Former Employee - Director of Engineering

I worked at Shopify full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

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.

Cons

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. 👍
