    Pros

    The values of Customer Obsession, Do It Differently, Winning Together, and Ownership Mindset are actually lived every day. The CEO's updates are not focused on revenue but on doing the right thing for our customers in line with our values - it's easy to connect the actions our leaders are taking with the values we have which makes decision making so much easier for everyone. All of the other seniors leaders constantly talk about the importance of focusing on our customers. Our leaders are experienced professionals who are accountable and responsible for the work they produce. We're not perfect but we can work together with trust and respect and we know our most senior leaders walk the walk when it comes to things like empowerment. Compensation is very fair and above market for the role I have and the work life balance is great. I know I'm appreciated for the work I do.

    Cons

    The rate of growth can make things chaotic at times because the processes we have are sometimes from a time when the company was a quarter the size it is now. You have to be willing to work with a bit of ambiguity when it comes to this. Underinvestment in the past around technology is catching up to us right now with all the growth but the company is investing massively here - potentially it's a tripling of the technology team in a single year. Benefits such as RRSP matching and parental leave could be better but I understand they're working on improving such things.

    We hear this a lot, especially from newer Particles however we're happy to say there is actually no catch. We simply strive to live by our guiding principles and do the right thing for both our people and customers. Also, regarding professional development, we just hired a Talent & Learning Development Manager to develop these programs, so stay tuned. -Brad, Talent Acquisition Manager

    Pros

    Forward thinking company with strong guiding principles, much opportunity and supportive team members.

    Cons

    Startup - many processes are still being developed. I believe this is an opportunity rather than a weakness. You can carve your own path.
