Great culture, everyone is helpful and supportive and wants to learn! Perks are incredible, I cannot overstate how awesome the free breakfast and lunch is!

Does Shopify offer parental leave?

Pros

- You'll work with the most amazing people. I've met my lifelong friends here. - Working for a company that people recognize globally is great - Great perks (food is taken care of including breakfast and lunch, lifestyle benefits, health benefits, mat and pat leave is unheard of) - Work on some really great projects

Cons

- There's a huge problem with leadership. A lot of the leads that are in place should not be leading people. They don't know what they're doing and don't get proper training. - A LOT of politics. It's all about who you know and it sucks for people who just want to work hard and mind their business - The marketing department has a lot of issues they need to work on. It makes for a pretty turbulent team to be on - They don't pay for the cost of living so there are huge wage disparities within the company. They try to make it seem like you should be grateful for the other benefits - so they don't pay what they should. Especially in such an expensive city like Toronto.

Advice to Management

- Train your leads better and make them more accountable. There's are too many incompetent leads and people who shouldn't be in their current roles.

Does Shopify have a pension plan?

Pros

Great company culture. I've never seen anything like it. It operates and grows like an organism. Do your job, have high impact and don't betray trust, you will do great here.

Cons

Support pay is ok, but it's a struggle to make ends meet. Stock price and returns are great but I am saving them for retirement as there is no pension fund.

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work and protect the culture!
