Does TripStack offer vacation time?

Pros

- Snacks - Nice, smart people (most have left) - Free lunch on Wednesdays

Cons

- Management lies a lot, creates financial incentives for achieving goals and never pays, will promise everything (raises, promotions, company equity, etc...) and will never deliver. - Culture is toxic. Lies from management aside, time at the company is micro managed and it's a minimum 8.5 hour day, little to no work from home. They try to set up company outings, and employees feel compelled to go. Awkward. - No career growth. People rarely, if ever, get promoted. Recent "promotions", come with no pay raise and more responsibility. - Only the very top employees are compensated fairly, everyone else is underpaid. - Good reviews are either lies, or were written years ago, when the company wasn't so bad. Employees are told to write good reviews here. - Most employees who could leave, have left. About 6 or 7 people left in less than a year due to the sharp decline in company culture. - Employees who become friends with management, clearly get preferential treatment. - CEO has no management skills, will micro manage one task and ignore other priorities.

Advice to Management

- Stop lying all the time. - Trust your employees, even a little. You hired them to do a job, let them, you don't need to micro manage everything. - Stop lying.

Does TripStack offer massages?

Pros

Free meal once a week (not offered during covid so no Pros actually) Have a lot of money so good equipment.

Cons

Elitist and micromanaging upper management. Promised employees compensation for working over time and on weekends but did not pay - they still owe multiple employees thousands of dollars. They will flat out lie to you in terms of your role and what you'll actually be working on. Since the reviews on Glassdoor are negative, they even hire under false company names. (Yes multiple fake names). They used to post ads under sFlight Network but now they hire using their parent company name, E-traveli. Recruiting candidates on deception, you can only imagine what kind of toxic place this is to work. Don't care about their employees well being of career progression; they will just overwork you (including after hours and weekends) and underpay you SIGNIFICANTLY. DO NOT RECOMMEND

How are the career development opportunities at TripStack?

Pros

1. Pay is fixed and okay as per market standards. 2. Work environment is fun and friendly. 3. There are learning and knowledge transfer sessions arranged for everyone. 4. Everyone is accessible in hierarchy. 5. Lucky one's might have opportunity to try their hands at different tech stack. 6. Few managers are awesome leaders and skilled.

Cons

1. There is no check on politics played by senior management. Only a few of them conduct duties with honesty, dedication and sincerity. 2. Many employees resort to fawning and flattering for survival and unfortunately, the management welcomes it. There is no proper anonymous way to lodge grievances and getting them addressed. 3. The pay is okay but does not match the exploitation being carried out. 4. There is no proper platform to properly access the productivity and recognise the employee. The real gems go unnoticed and unsung in the biased environment. Unnecessary highlights to certain roles and people. 5. No career or personal growth option.

Advice to Management

Please refer to Cons.

5. No career or personal growth option.

What kind of career opportunities exist at TripStack?

Pros

Well funded: the owners of the company seem to see it as a long-term investment and the company is well funded. The company will do well in the long-term. Very friendly colleagues: no cultural issues really. Everybody seems humble and ready to help. Good culture despite the challenges with Covid. Flexibility to work on different projects: there are many opportunities to get involved in different initiatives. Management is flexible. Good opportunities to grow within the company: as a growing start-up, there are many opportunities to grow. Diversity: people in the Toronto office are from all over the world and the company has offices in India as well. The clients are also spread throughout Europe and the Americas. Work-life balance: people work hard but that's not anything new in the Toronto tech scene. I would say it is pretty fair. Transparency: there’s a business and a tech town hall every week. We get regular updates on how the business is doing (revenue, sales, product, etc). Having been in opaque organizations before I can tell that the company tries to communicate as much as possible which is something I appreciate. Overall my experience has been pretty positive.

Cons

It is challenging to test new product updates during the current pandemic since not many people are flying.
