    Pros

    Culture is amazing here and they value your growth

    Cons

    Lack of funding and HR department is a bit messy. Claims there are new role and even interviewed for it, but they informed me (after I asked) last minute they are no longer offering this position due to budgeting reasons.

    Riipen Response

    Hi there - thank you for sharing your experience working as an intern on our Employer partnerships team. I always appreciate sharing with your community the good and the not so good, it helps us know where to focus our efforts. We are thrilled that the culture resonated with you - it is something we are so so proud of, and you as an intern made a huge contribution to that culture, so thank you! I am not quite sure what you are referencing with the lack of an HR Department - we have a team of 3 (of which I am one) and as any start up, sometimes what we think we need as a role, transforms and is no longer required, or turns into something else, although we try and mitigate that wherever possible. Once again, thank you for sharing your Riipen experience with the world, internships are such an important part of Riipen and thank you for being a part of our story. - Sarah (Head of P&C)

    Good Entry Level Starting Point

    Pros

    - Excellent introduction to Ed-Tech at the entry level - Good people first culture for the most part - Diverse team from across Canada/US - Good product market fit on educators side of the marketplace - Competitive salaries at the entry level, less so in more senior positions

    Cons

    - Some inexperienced leadership - a few excellent department heads with industry expertise to learn from, but certainly in the minority with turnover by key hires to these roles. - Lacking product market fit on the industry side of the platform - Lots of fire drills and changing direction - expected for a startup but excessive at this stage in the company's growth. Extremely counter productive and causes massive spikes in workload. - Lack of growth opportunity. Easy to outgrow your role and hit a ceiling.
