The company is generous with its employees (time off, pay, benefits, team building events) Great work-life balance, take the time you need to take care of your life outside of work The employees


Not enough people speak up when they disagree

Advice to Management

Keep listening to your employees as you do (we really appreciate being heard), don't be afraid to take a stand and be the leader in the industry rather than a follower.

    Average Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at Zendesk (Montreal, QC)


    Super cool recruiter and team. The team was super accommodating, scenarios presented were taken from day to day operations. Loved every bit of it. Interviewers focused more on the depth of knowledge and understandings of principals.
