    I have been working at D2L full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I have been with D2L for just over 3 months and I’ve never worked in an environment quite like this. D2L proves time and time again that they value their employees with all the extra resources and programs to ensure we’re well while working from home. I’ve had some excellent leaders who are very compassionate and make you feel valued. The culture they have created is amazing. Everyone around you happily works hard and it’s very inspiring. You are encouraged to explore other areas of the company so that you can truly do what you love. I’ve been super impressed and look forward to a very long career here.

    Cons

    I haven’t experienced any yet.
