Does Flipp offer vacation time?

Pros

Development and culture are top tier in the city. Great exit and learning opporutinies.

Cons

Smoke and mirrors. Feels like the equity and perks are utilized to milk you of your input hours. Hours are unrealistic, 55 hrs typical. Busy season 60+. "Unlimited Vacation" claim should be held accountable for misleading and false advertising. You're lucky if you get a week off with 3 weeks notice. Dishonest answers to interview questions when asked about work-life balance. Lots of read flags I ignored naively. Must be reachable even when your on your death bed, will follow up.with feedback if you happen to pass away. Plethora of shady practices in more than one department. The type of place to discuss mental health issues and their commitment towards tackling it and then conduct visceral and punitive behaviour. Sorta like getting therapy from your drug dealer. Lots of complaining about issues - very little action by management. Typical place that will not accept their responsibilities as an employer, but rather rely on the high demand + turnover strategy to onboard, forget and ignore and offload their problems. Pay is weak for entry level BD, in exchange for the high blood pressure you may find it better to work elsewhere unless you want to climb fast and hard and drink harder

Advice to Management

Be honest in your interviews. Aggressive tactics such as an offer start date within 1 week is u professional. Management disabled benefits at their convincence. Punitive measures are used frequently and there are plenty of unthethical practices here, both to employees and retail partners. Perhaps create a better culture than work till it hurts then drink the pain away with people in your work clique.

Does Flipp offer parental leave?

Pros

When I started it was an amazing opportunity for me. The people are truly phenomenal, most management puts a lot of effort ensuring the right people get hired for the job and mesh well with existing teams. Free friday lunches and snacks at all times, great benefits, amazing company wide trips, working from home whenever you want within reason, no cold shoulder when you're sick, they really care about your well being and work vs. personal life balance. Regardless of high level "vision" which indeed did seem to be ever-changing, I truly loved going into work every day and felt as if I was valuable to the company.

Cons

After almost 3 years of me working my butt off for the company, they had yet again, another MASS FIRING. 70+ people laid off on the same day. Some for performance, which granted, needs to happen. Some based purely on the fact that upper management didn't do their jobs to better sustain certain team members, including me. I put a lot into Flipp and was wiling to continue to do so. I had seen the signs of this happening, I can't say I was completely surprised unfortunately and am not one to shame based on rash feelings. I understand why this happened, and know that my services will be well appreciated somewhere else, but the way they went about this "mass firing" lumping us all in together, some over the phone, some on maternity leave, giving us little to no explanation and handling our questions, emails, replies etc. with what seemed like very little care is unforgivable. I felt completely forgotten and truly set up for pure failure. I continually got told that I was valuable, and that "this was one of the hard ones" but no follow up as to what actually happened. The little clarity given and the little respect for my time and life was shocking. Everything they preach prior you being out that door sounds good until you're on the other side of it realizing it's just talk and no follow through. The amount I had to continuously email, call, to get clarity on things like my severance just to turn up with no response for days was completely frustrating and unprofessional. The team that was dealing with all this is small, but yet again, Flipp bit off more than they can chew and didn't properly prepare. I was Flipp's #1 cheerleader, and this has left me with nothing but resentment and disappointment in not only the Company but the founders/upper management.

Advice to Management

Do your job and budget for the company. Better, use the money leftover from all our salaries to hire someone to do it properly so you don't do this to more people. You shoot too high and end up disappointing not only those you laid off but those that still work there in the 3 crammed floors from 5, less benefits, no trips, not to mention extremely low moral. Give those that deserve it, who performed nothing but properly and well over years, the decency of an explanation.

Does Flipp offer life insurance?

Pros

- Work with some great people - Free snacks - great Insurance plan

Cons

- You will witness cliques and preferential treatment; favouritism which left a very toxic environment - Management pretends to care about your growth and make you feel that you matter but its all a lie - Everyone gets a coach but they are absolutely are not trained in any way to guide you, its more like a power trip - You are expected to work long hours, even when you go home, at night, at weekends. They say they manage your hours but if something happens and its the weekend you have to get to work - Not stable business and management as many people were let go and they did not see it coming - The company does not actually follow their own policies, for example you can work from home but if you choose to do that they frown upon it and would rather have you work in office for "pod presence" - Also, they talk about trusting employees but they really don't - High stress job - If your project lead or management messes up, the blame is on you

Advice to Management

There should be a massive change to the coaching system. Not everyone can be a coach and not everyone fits well with one. Sadly, I had let my manager know that my coach isn't a great fit for me but as they both are friends - no action was taken. Flipp has potential to be a good company to work for but as time is passing it was getting extremely bad to work there. My coach and manager made my life miserable, so much so that I hated coming to work.
