How are the career development opportunities at Coconut Software?

Pros

Amazing leadership team, great colleagues, diverse, contagious culture, and a place for constant career development. My experience here has been exceptional! Despite being separated by two offices, the leadership does a phenomenal job to foster strong relationships and an great culture. This is a team that is driven to win and have fun while doing it. What is truly amazing is that the team here knows that they don't have all the answers and invests in mentors and resources to help find them. The most people focused organization I've had the pleasure of working for!

Cons

Typical growing pains of a startup but leadership has their finger on the pulse and actively manages this by investing in solutions and in their people to do so.

Advice to Management

Keep doing you!

How do employees feel about their professional development opportunities at Coconut Software?

Pros

- Ability to learn through workshops and actually apply it to your work - The culture is great here, everyone truly wants to help each other. There aren't any "groups" as management has instilled some awesome codes to help foster team work and honesty - Leadership truly cares about helping you. Whether it be career development (setting up workshops to develop our skills), or to simply help answer those tough questions, they're all reachable and willing to assist - Catered lunches every Thursday and a social outing each month! Helps reinforce the above as we get to know each other outside of the office - Free gear (laptop and licenses for useful software given your role)

Cons

- Very minor, but, consistency on enforcing things like being late in the morning for all departments Other than that, I honestly can't think of anything else

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work, I love working here and working with my colleagues. Being able to learn new processes is a huge plus as too many organizations today are focused on the status-quo

What is the feeling of job security at Coconut Software?

Pros

-health benefits start on day 1 -daily, weekly, bi-weekly meetings -personal development -can work remotely -weekly provided lunches

Cons

-lack of/poor communication between departments -handled covid poorly as in leadership did not consult managers before laying off employees that were in the middle of working on projects and/or communicating with clients -Certain project managers would not take responsibility when they messed up and would blame employees as well as not fully understand the software -dissolved their QA team -hired employees that were not competent for the role

Advice to Management

Don't tell your staff that "we are in this together" when you have no loyalty to them and if you lay them off, do it at the start of their shifts, not at the end or halfway through it. Stop lying to your staff when you tell them that you are helping former employees every step of the way when you are not. When the second wave hits, try having the board and CEO take a pay cut rather than lay off employees that rely on their job or try reducing hours temporarily.
