    I worked at Clearbanc full-time

    Pros

    Decent benefits, amazing coworkers, and supportive company culture.

    Cons

    Strict protocol on meeting targets, if not, there's first a verbal warning, then under review, and if no improvement, you will be cut.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Clearbanc full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fast paced They do a good job moving people to new roles when they hit milestones Do a lot of training

    Cons

    Unique culture: calling people out, fighting over leads, work all hours Inexperienced leadership- middle managers are micro-managers. Not their fault, just don't have experience. No coaching, professional or personal development. I don't trust the head of revenue at all- very self serving

    I have been working at Clearbanc full-time

    Pros

    Will seem OK for your first little while - typical start-up culture that thinks they can make up for/ignore how badly they treat their employees by masking it with snacks and drinks at their demos

    Cons

    Like others have said, just a toxic work environment all around. Not inclusive enough, favouring their sales staff over everyone else. Leadership can be clouded by this, expects employees to constantly be on Slack, answering emails, etc. and each team should really take a look at how they treat one another!

    I have been working at Clearbanc full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nice new office in downtown Toronto. Computers. Decent salary but not great.

    Cons

    Expect to work 10+ hours per day, plus to be available on evenings and weekends. Still so disorganized that most work is unproductive. Company culture equates long hours with engaged employees, promoting unqualified people and burning out others. Fear-based management, specially in tech (not sure about sales, where most people look happy). Feels like high-school: fakeness, drama, gossip and drugs. Can't wait to find another job and leave.

    Clearbanc Response

    February 25, 2020Head of People

    This may be a long shot but the review says you're a current employee and I'd *really* like to talk. Are you open to that? What you've outlined is worrying, but I'm especially concerned about you feeling unheard and uncared for as a member of the team outside of sales and leadership. I want nothing more here than to hear you out and gather your feedback. My phone number and email is in Slack -- please, please reach out. - Ella

    Pros

    Everyone is truly committed to building the company together Leadership holds themselves accountable Transparency is present from top to bottom Free lunch and unlimited snacks

    Cons

    Too many meetings with people that dont need to be there, it's a growing pain of a fast growing company but you dont need 20 people in a room if 15 of them dont have anything to contribute or arent impacted by the byproduct of the meeting

    Pros

    Extremely fortunate to join Clearbanc right out of school. It’s a demanding yet extremely satisfying and rewarding job. We are here to help founders win one step at a time and it’s no easy task. Work hard play hard environment where everyone cares about your personal and career goals. The culture is AMAZING. These individuals aren’t my colleagues they are my friends. They care about me and want to see me succeed. We have each other’s back by being transparent and open to others opinions. Everyone is so extremely motivated and it rubs off every day you are in the office, you want to succeed for those around you. The list goes on but I can sum it all up - i wake up in the morning excited to go to work.

    Cons

    We are a start up, things move quickly and decisions are made promptly. Make sure this type of fast paced environment is the right fit for yourself.
