Featured Review

Current Employee - Product Manager

I have been working at Tucows full-time for less than a year

Pros

I joined Tucows for a little under a year now and it's truly been a breath of fresh air. Tucows is a company that is diverse and truly values people of colour. The company have real, authentic... conversations about racial and gender injustice. Discussions lead to action items that are actioned upon. Leadership empowers you to make decisions and leadership is approachable regardless of their title. Lastly, the employee benefits are simply amazing.

Cons

Tucows embraces video conferencing quite a lot - maybe too much. I would love for Tucows to advise employees to only use video when face time is necessary as this can be very draining when working... remotely.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing and don't ever become "too corporate".

Cons

Work can consume you if you don't pace yourself or set rules

Advice to Management

Keep improving
