    I have been working at Flipp full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    First-time reviewer - I've been at Flipp for 3 years and am looking forward to many more. I'm grateful to be learning new things every day, being trusted as a business owner, and taking on challenges that may have taken many more years to reach in other organizations. Great people, amazing opportunities, tough work, autonomy to make meaningful and important decisions, and a keen focus on goals, competencies, and growth.

    Cons

    Nothing to note. Just know that this is a demanding industry and that you get out what you put into it. There is a ton of opportunity, amazing people, and great rewards, but expect a steep learning curve if you are not well-versed in both digital media and retail.

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

    Pros

    - The exec team is always trying to be as transparent as possible, sharing information and numbers as well as projections for the quarter and year that are updated every other week based on new events/contracts; - A grace place to improve your career with both, internal opportunities to move around teams as well as improve your knowledge with the growth program that encourages employees to learn new things and have some empowerment, ownership and leadership experience by choosing small goals/projects you want to work on; - Great culture and benefits

    Cons

    - As in many startups in the GTA area, competition out there is hard and we're constantly loosing great team members - Not 100% flexible when it comes to work from home yet

    I have been working at Flipp full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    In over 10 years of work experience Flipp has by far been the best corporation I've worked at for the following reasons. These responses are based off of my own experience and those that I worked closely with and may be different from wha others have experienced so I encourage you to reach out to people who work here for a complete view. Also the below has been more prevalent at certain times based on where I was in experience at Flipp but for the most part has been consistent through my time at the organization. Additional context is I chose to work long hours and hustle and therefore was rewarded with opportunities at an accelerated rate but anyone can go at their own speed. 1. An incredible team where life long friends are created all the time and there is a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet some truly intelligent, driven people that will help you to work towards maximizing your potential 2. Trust in teammates to take on new challenges and support systems/ resources 3. Focus and dedication to development of others 4. Autonomy to create your own path and drive your career 5. Respect individual teammates opinions/ knowledge and experience 6. Especially in the last two years, there has been a focus to invest in proven leadership and talent at the executive level which is providing a direct benefit to the rest of the organization

    Cons

    No company is perfect but the companies that are able to see where they are not meeting the expectations of the organization or the cultural principles they have established and then actively work to get back on track are truly the best corporations. The areas where Flipp is trying to get back on track right now are below 1. Clear and consistent communication on strategy on the overall vision for the organization and accountability when strategies do not work and changes need to be made 2. Formalization and documentation of established processes. As the company has moved extremely fast to grow tot he size that it has, a lot of institutional knowledge lives in the 3. Resourcing for movement with the fast pace changes of a growing organization- As new roles become available or employees take on new roles, there is a lot of autonomy to figure out the best way to be successful but less formal frameworks than some other organizations

    I have been working at Flipp full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Real challenging work. No BS, you're not a cog in a wheel, you're able to influence strategy, product development, and org projects in a way you could never do at a huge tech company. With COVID the business is growing rapidly as people shift to digital. Really great to work at a place that is actually growing at this time The company helps families save money to make life affordable. Thats a really nice reason to wake up every morning. Much better than what other tech companies offer to society.

    Cons

    Small company relative to the big guns (Google, Facebook...etc) so you have to fight and work hard to win. Lots of change and passion required. DO NOT join this place if you want to just have a relaxing job - this place isn't for you.

    I have been working at Flipp full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Opportunity to work with awesome, smart, driven people - A culture of transparency and high trust - A new executive team really focused on intentional but smart growth - It's hard work, but generally speaking people seem to actually like what they do! - You'll be given the opportunity to voice your thoughts, and regardless of "level" people will listen.

    Cons

    - Growing pains - If you're used to the strict heirarchy and well-established processes of a blue chip company, you aren't going to find that here (for better and for worse) - Things move really fast, this isn't a 9-5

    I have been working at Flipp full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Team - there are really great people here. I continue to learn from the people around me every day. The atmosphere is fun and people genuinely look after each other Challenging work - the retail space is going through a lot of change right now. Flipp is working hard to support our stakeholders through the change Transparency - there has been an increased focus on communication within the organization, which has really helped drive clarity on the team Momentum - there have been a lot of positive changes over the past year including an increased focus on discipline. These changes are improving how we work as organization and driving better planning and alignment

    Cons

    Lots of change - our industry is changing rapidly so we need to be able to be nimble to manage through that change. That said, it also means there is a lot of opportunity out there for us

    I have been working at Flipp full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have been at Flipp over 4 years and It's been an incredible experience. I've had the opportunity to move into several roles across the company and have learned and grown more than I could have imagined. I feel I am able to make a strong impact and contribution as a member of the leadership team and have really been able to apply my entrepreneurial spirit and creativity to my work at Flipp. I love my team, we work hard together to achieve great results and we genuinely get along and have fun together. It's been a very rewarding experience for me to grow with the company and there are great things coming - I can't wait for what the future has in store.

    Cons

    We move quickly and pivot with changing market demands when necessary which can be challenging but the recent goal-setting and strategy work has really helped stabilize the pace and priorities.

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

    Pros

    Flexible work from home Competitive compensation and benefits Team members are super smart and you learn a lot from your peers. CEO really cares about the team members and loves to get your feedback and input and really takes it into consideration Exec team has been extremely caring during this pandemic and have fought hard to ensure the team are taken of and remain employed.

    Cons

    Hours can be long. Workload is huge and ad-hoc requests are expected to be dealt with immediately which makes prioritization difficult. Our executive always leaves everything to the last minute which means our team is scrambling and working well into the night to get her what she needs for a meeting or presentation.
