Does Wagepoint offer vacation time?

Pros

So many things to love about this company. I'll break it down, point-form style: - A small start-up remote environment allows for autonomous work - no micro-managing or hand-holding. You are trusted to do your job, period. - Challenging but rewarding work. Every person here wears more than one hat - this can get difficult at times, but so much satisfaction comes from getting a lot done (and you're definitely recognized for it!) - Lots of impact. Because we are still relatively small, everyone has a voice and that voice is heard. Anyone is able to message Shrad (CEO) directly without any fear of judgement; he truly cares about each and every person that works for him and wants everyone to bring their true, authentic selves to work - this is so refreshing! - The people! Extra care is taken to hire the right people, and that is plainly clear. Everyone has the "thanksgiving effect" - I would gladly have thanksgiving dinner with each and every person at Wagepoint (we're going to need a bigger table!) - Wagepoint is a remote company, so it's a huge plus to work in your own space/own schedule/etc. - Transparency and communication is great! Because we're remote, extra care and attention is paid to making sure everyone is on the same page. - Psychological safety - this is a big one. I feel safe at work both to be myself and to do my job without any fear of being reprimanded or negatively judged. I would feel comfortable raising any concerns or asking tough questions. All feedback is given (and received) with care and empathy.

Cons

I don't really have any "cons" at the moment, because anything that could be a negative is already being worked on/looked at. But here are some things to consider: - Remote work isn't for everyone - sometimes it can be a little lonely and if you've never worked remote before it takes some getting used to. But the nice thing is that your colleagues are a slack message away and are always open to a friendly non-work-related chat. - There are still some bumps in the road when it comes to process creation and documentation. But we are currently working on a company wiki which will be game-changing when it rolls out to the whole company and hopefully solve a lot of those issues. - Onboarding for new employees was a bit rocky (but this is something that is currently being improved) - There is also room for improvement with overall perks and total rewards (comp, vacation time, benefits offerings) - it's a massive perk to be remote, so that's a pull for a lot of people. But as the company grows, we will have to differentiate ourselves in becoming a bit more competitive. - Not a con for me personally because I have a good setup, but you need your own equipment - the company provides this if you need it, but not until after your probationary period

Advice to Management

My advice is to keep on being awesome! Keep hiring great people, investing in them and allowing them to do their best work without any unnecessary red tape or barriers. You already listen to your employees - keep doing that and take action on their feedback! It's very much appreciated. As we grow, let's try our best not to lose our small-town vibe and friendly atmosphere. That's what really sets us apart :)

How are the career development opportunities at Wagepoint?

Pros

- Culture is A+++++ and is taken very seriously. I started as a freelancer and had a conversation with the CEO even then. But I appreciate it because the minute you join the team, you'll understand that it's worth all of the effort. Everyone is so different yet egoless, incredibly supportive and caring, friendly, competent and all-around good human beings. I've never felt so encouraged to be my authentic self from an employer. - Payroll is a necessity for every business, so everything you do feels like it's making a real difference for the small business owner. - Our watercooler is hilarious. - This is a place where you really get to take ownership of your career and personal development (with a little bit of guidance from leadership). - I feel cared for and valued as a human and as an employee. - Compensation is pretty fair. - Excellent work-life balance. Like the energizer bunny, I can go on and on and on...

Cons

None, really! Remote might be tough some days but there are lots of opportunities to socialize online (Slack, JackBox, etc.) and we've had a few local gatherings pre-COVID. I was worried about joining a remote team again. In a previous role, I developed anxiety and became depressed with remote being a key factor, but Wagepoint makes it really easy. No regrets, whatsoever.

Advice to Management

Keep it up, Shrad :) I don't think this will ever happen but never ever ever lose sight of your values and belief in building the company around them, especially as the company grows. This is the biggest thing that sets the company apart from others.
