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

    Pros

    The team at Opencare are some of the most thoughtful and talented individuals I've ever met! A lot of people speak about "hiring people that are smarter than you" but Opencare is the first place I've really seen this become reality. Everyone is involved in major decision making from day 1, and there is complete transparency about all aspects of the company (including the full financials) to ensure everyone is a true...

    Cons

    Hiring does take a long time (due to the focus on hiring people that add to the culture) which means there are some gaps on the team for a while. This can place strain on teams but the managers do try to provide insight and visibility into the work being done to address it. The fast pace of work can lead to rapid changes in direction and de-prioritized work. This is to be expected in a start up but can be frustrating...

    Advice to Management

    Continue to think and look critically at the business and avoid getting swept up in your own hype. You're building something very special and we're excited to be along for the journey! Continue to share freely and speak openly about decisions and changes, it makes a huge difference to the team.

    Pros

    - Well-protected culture even while scaling teams quickly - Leadership understands the value developing sustainable growth through processes & systems over "just hitting targets" - Extremely flexible and generous L&D programs for personal development, not once has someone said no to something I wanted to go for (also, any courses or books you want are funded by OC) - Awesome people! Everyone from sales to engineering...

    Cons

    - We're outgrowing our office space (definitely a positive though!) - It's only been stellar so far!

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

    Pros

    There's a huge emphasis on personal development so there are a lot of opportunities for personal and professional growth. The cofounders really encourage and model work life balance and being your optimal healthy self. It's supported by the cultural values as well as all the company perks such as unlimited vacation, free massages, free access to a performance psychologist and flexible work hours. The work itself...

    Cons

    The company is growing really quickly, which comes with its own growing pains. There are still some processes that will need to be made scalable to make sure that we can continue to scale at this pace.

    Advice to Management

    Opencare has an amazing culture and I hope we can continue to keep it this great as we scale!
