    Salary can be higher. Some of the departments could be better structured. While there is a lot of opportunity, there needs to be a better structure on how to get to certain positions.

    Current Employee - Senior Software Developer in Burnaby, BC

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Clio full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - I am part of the interview panel at Clio and I get to participate regularly in hiring committee meetings. From these meetings I learned a lot about Clio’s culture, values, and my co-workers. I must say I love Clio’s human and high-performing culture and values. My co-workers are super compassionate, have both high IQ and EQ, and are fair and just. We hire not just based on ability but also based on potential, and I love how we carefully evaluate each candidate’s personal circumstances, how we don’t treat candidates as numbers but rather try to understand them as human beings. We look at the whole candidate's story, and try to understand who they are as a person and how they got to where they are today. - As Clio grows, you grow with it. You have career conversations with your manager and you can chart your growth trajectory in every aspect, career-wise or personally. - Meaningful social activities that help you bond with your co-workers both within and outside your team. - High quality managers. Managers are keenly aware of both the technical and non-technical challenges of the team and the needs of their reports. Managers strive to make the best team dynamics while ensuring the successful operations of teams. - There are lots of interesting technical challenges so that developers get ample opportunities to improve and/or keep up their skills.

    Cons

    - In my opinion, there are a few bad technical decisions made in the past that caused a lot of technical debt right now. I think the team should focus on making the right high-risk decisions early on, rather than saying things like "we are not at Google-scale yet, therefore our code doesn't need to be super performant". Some of my coworkers disagree with me on this, so I guess it's more of my personal opinion than a fact?
