      Great place to work

      Mar. 9, 2021 - Senior Software Engineer in Toronto, ON

      Pros

      I have been working here close to 3 years now, I immigrated to Canada and this was my first job, there was a huge cultural change between my home country and here at Achievers. The people here are so good, they are always ready to help, give good ideas and honest opinion. I have made alot of good friends here, because of their nature. Real Pros: - People are helpful here - Always value your ideas - If you have potential of moving up the ladder, your manager will give you constant feedbacks on your 1-1 with them, I found them extremely helpful - perks are good - people respect your personal time, I hardly see any message after 5, unless something is seriously broken ( which is very very rare) - open culture: You are allowed to raise your concerns using office hours ( there is a team channel, where you can ask question to Senior Leadership team) - regular pulse survey, that collects the feedback anonymously. Our CEO share the report of these survey in a meeting with entire org and have seen things changes - A lot to learn, they are writing the entire code base from scratch, which will allow you to explore new tools and a great exposure to the new cutting edge technology, rather than working on old monolithic apps - A lot of things has changed after getting new management, the decisions are taken quickly. If you fail in something, they will always help you to learn from that failure

      Cons

      Like every coin has 2 sides. Like wise every company has pros and cons too. - Yes, Salary is below the industry standards, but I have seen this feedback is being heard and the company has started doing massive adjustments - there is no free parking provided by the office ( I dont know if any company in Toronto provides that)

      Pros

      The new CEO has been here a year now, and the whole atmosphere at work has gone back to the awesome place it was before. People are really helpful, and it is great to be at a company that uses its own software on a daily bases. I feel very fortunate to work here.

      Cons

      Staying current with Toronto market salaries.

      Toronto based New President no leadership, lack of vision and ability to build cohesive team; creates instability; clear with where to go, not able to make it happen. Dysfunctional leadership, no guidance, unrealistic assessment of needs and people to do it.

      Pros

      - Great work-life balance - Average pay with plenty of events

      Cons

      - Tucked away in west end Toronto, may not be ideal for commuting - Turnover rate is unnerving for a company that work in the retention space

      Great team, very smart people, real A-players

      Cons

      The majority of career opportunity/progression is in the Toronto office where 75% of the CSM team are. Opportunities to excel outside of the Toronto office are few and far between.
