      Smoke and Mirrors, Don't be fooled . Unrealistic hours. Good Culture

      Pros

      Development and culture are top tier in the city. Great exit and learning opporutinies.

      Cons

      Smoke and mirrors. Feels like the equity and perks are utilized to milk you of your input hours. Hours are unrealistic, 55 hrs typical. Busy season 60+. "Unlimited Vacation" claim should be held accountable for misleading and false advertising. You're lucky if you get a week off with 3 weeks notice. Dishonest answers to interview questions when asked about work-life balance. Lots of read flags I ignored naively. Must be reachable even when your on your death bed, will follow up.with feedback if you happen to pass away. Plethora of shady practices in more than one department. The type of place to discuss mental health issues and their commitment towards tackling it and then conduct visceral and punitive behaviour. Sorta like getting therapy from your drug dealer. Lots of complaining about issues - very little action by management. Typical place that will not accept their responsibilities as an employer, but rather rely on the high demand + turnover strategy to onboard, forget and ignore and offload their problems. Pay is weak for entry level BD, in exchange for the high blood pressure you may find it better to work elsewhere unless you want to climb fast and hard and drink harder

      Amazing Place to Accelerate your Career

      Pros

      Amazing place to learn and grow - I've been challenged and pushed to grow far faster and better than any other company i've worked for. Company recently announced $1300 L&D spend for every employee to help with career growth. Great culture - We practice what we preach with regards to being hungry, humble and highly intelligent. We are a highly collaborative and team-based culture and everyone is always willing to help you out. Open and Transparent Leadership - company does a monthly town hall with open Q&A and every topic is on the table. Throughout the pandemic, no layoffs and company continued to grow and was very open about company decisions and considerations Fun - the people are incredible to work with, they care for each other, helpful and extremely bright. I feel I learn from those around me and that is very motivating for me as I continue to build my career Competitive pay, bonus and long term incentives - company has always paid out bonuses and merit increases and offers very competitive stock options

      Cons

      We are growing and that comes with pioneering new initiatives and rolling up your sleeves to build and create. This can require lots of energy but it's highly rewarding if you have an entrepreneurial spirit. You will not thrive here if you're looking for a complacent, comfortable place to work

      Best Leadership Training Ground

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - The sales team has a really good culture and strong focus on pushing you to develop as an awesome leader. - Many sales people who start at Flipp seem to go on to become top performers at other big tech companies like Amazon, Shopify, and TikTok. - No one is here to mail it in and I feel a genuine sense of passion from others that is kind of infectious - people really care on the sales team.

      Cons

      - Its a lot of work because of the focus on developing you. This isn't the kind of place where you can coast so don't come to Flipp if you want an easy job. - the future user growth plans are unclear which can be frustrating.

      Hard working team members who also like to have fun!

      Pros

      First time in my career where I feel like every team member is working towards a common goal, works hard, but also values balance and fun! Flipp is also very supportive for team member individual needs and makes sure there are lots of work options to accommodate personal lives! Benefits are top notch

      Cons

      While the “work hard” mentality comes with long hours at times, the flexibility allows you to work when you need… for example if you need to hop out to an appointment or sign off and hangout with your kids in the middle of the day, that’s ok, so long as you still get your work done! Flipp also has amazing perks like summer hours and extra long weekends so it feels extra special especially after working hard

      Flippin' good workplace!

      Pros

      The best part about Flipp is working with highly intelligent and motivated people on engaging and rewarding projects. Every team is constantly recognizing each other's hard work and encouraging each other to contribute more or learn from constructive feedback. Flipp's remote work flexibility is great for work-life balance and since I've joined they have provided both learning & growth and internal career opportunities, along with a wide variety of diversity & inclusion initiatives.

      Cons

      Working from home during the pandemic has been great in terms of flexibility and productivity, however wellbeing may improve with a (potential) return to the office.

      Pros

      The leadership team really cares about the team members at Flipp. They are consistently trying to support the organization. Genuine people who care about the work and organizational objective/goals. Everyone is trying hard to solve the tough digital problem of a shopping app. Great cultural values and principles that are used in everything we do.

      Cons

      Working in a fast pace environment can be tough at times and is not for everyone but can be really rewarding.

      Heavy Investment in People & Perks

      Jul 8, 2021 - Manager

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Excellent flexibility (remote options, flex hours, no one is watching your hours) - Endless perks (extended long weekends, summer hours, Christmas shutdown, flexible vacation, great benefit programs) - The people & teams are fantastic. Highly functioning and you're really pushed for growth

      Cons

      In my experience, the loudest talkers are the ones who are recognized within the teams via shoutouts and promotions/role progressions. The team members who aren't the loudest in the room are often overlooked and take a backseat to their more vocal team members. It makes for fake relationships and unnecessary competition to be the loudest speaker in the room. I'd push leaders to stop buying into that culture and instead foster equal communication.
