Are employees at Coconut Software generally happy and/or satisfied?

Pros

Having worked here for a good 6 months, I can safely say that Coconut is the best company I’ve worked for, and I’ve worked for four different companies, in both the for-profit and not-for-profit sectors. I work in the Toronto office so I don’t get to see our lovely CEO as much as I’d like to. (She's in Saskatoon, although she usually makes monthly trips down that we all look forward to) When we are chatting and when she is here, though, I take something away from every conversation with her because she is not only a BO$$, but she’s also super personable and always willing to LISTEN, and not just HEAR what you’re saying. The Toronto office is an open space where sales, marketing, customer experience, and our project management team resides, along with our CRO. Our CRO is full of insight and even though he’s extremely busy, he makes time and has an open door policy for anyone to approach him with anything, and that’s something I value highly. Every single person who works here is dedicated to their work and it really shows. The passion is off the charts !!! As a queer POC, I feel heard, safe and accepted in a field/environment that I wasn’t sure I could participate in. We’re one big happy family that values open communication and celebrates wins together, while learning from our hurdles/opportunities. Getting past stereotypes in a cis straight male-dominated line of work is a constant battle, but it really isn’t something that crosses my mind at Coconut. The company, when I joined, was not just talking about diversity and inclusivity, but practicing it to foster an environment that represents inclusivity for all.

Cons

Since we're a start-up, things evolve and change, and we have to adapt with those changes on the fly. That just takes a little getting used to, however, it keeps things fresh and keeps you on your toes.

The passion is off the charts !!!

What is the company culture like 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

- The culture is great here, everyone truly wants to help each other.
