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

    Pros

    Joining Flipp was the best career move I have made. The culture is miles ahead of previous companies. It is very much a meritocracy where hard work pays off. The team I work on regularly hangs out outside of the office because we truly enjoy spending time with each other and want to be successful because of those around us. Everyone will provide open and honest feedback across the team so that we are able to grow and...

    Cons

    The company has grown rapidly and with that comes growing pains. While my team has an amazing culture, other teams in the company have suffered as we grown. This isn't surprising and teams are actively working to fix it.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in more external senior leaders with experience leading and growing teams.

    Pros

    The team members are the reason to come to work. Everyone is driven to win and supportive of one another. The business has gone through a lot of change but feels like we have the right direction and great strategic partnerships with our customers. Good pay and benefits and the ability to manage your own work/life balance. Finally, excited about the future and what we can do if we stay focused on what we do best...

    Cons

    For all of those who ask for feedback but do not mean it this place is not for you. However can say in our team the feedback is generally to strengthen us all so we can be our best. Some travel which can make for long weeks once in a while.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on the strategy and do not always create a pivot when one is not needed. Continue to listen to the business owners and give us a say in the strategy so we can help grow the company.

    I worked at Flipp full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You'll make really good friends.

    Cons

    There's no separation between work and life. You're always connected and the leadership team (exec) has no idea what they're doing. They've done a good job getting the company to where it was by end of 2016 but everything beyond that has been smoke and mirrors, missed revenue targets, failed product launches and partnerships. The app is so complicated and not user-friendly that I don't even know how to work it.

    Advice to Management

    Leverage external resources and understand that employees have the right to habe a life beyond flipp. It's not always #flipp4lyfe

    Cons

    Because of the growth of the organization, there are more things to do than there are people to do them. The simple fix is to focus on what is important and what is the priority for the company and each respective team. This is what management teaches, and if it's adhered to, it's very easy to have an excellent work/life balance. With that being said, this is a company of high-performers, so if you want a job where...

    Advice to Management

    You have a very clear vision of where the company will end up. If you keep crystallizing that vision to the organization and keep driving towards it, it will eventually become a reality, which is very exciting. Keep up the good work.
