It is encouraging to work with a team of passionate and highly-driven individuals. Plus, movie nights, Friday feasts, football Wednesdays and more makes it a fun place to be.

    I have been working at Alida full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Supportive colleagues, strategic leadership, flexibility, momentum, growth, product innovation, clear communication, work/life balance

    Cons

    In the past, there seemed to be periodic misalignment across departments and it would take ages to get things done. Now I feel we are aligned and moving in one direction together, getting things done more swiftly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
