    I have been working at Flipp full-time

    Pros

    - Flipp is a company that absolutely stays true to who it is. The founders and execs have built a culture that is lasting and they invest in their people and teams. - Flipp really is the type of company that will make room for you to grow if you showcase your value. If you raise your hand and show that you're willing to work hard, Flipp will make space for you to do your thing. I have always had my coaches be receptive...

    Cons

    - Like any startup, Flipp has gone through growing pains. There have been company pivots in strategy and vision and there have been times where changes in company strategy have affected the company in challenging ways. The ability to pivot and be agile is important here and I can see how the pace can be a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to bring in experienced outside leadership (already making strides in this area) who can help shape the overall vision for Flipp. Additionally, continue to invest in more junior level employees who are looking to grow their careers into the management level.

    I worked at Flipp full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The work is rewarding and the people are the nicest, youngest bunch you can find. The environment is undoubtedly the best I've been in, as I'm sure everyone who's been would tell you. Foosball, couches, snacks and lunches, and trips year-round.

    Cons

    The work for co ops can be repetitive by the forth month, but the team is always supportive for you expanding into other areas of development as long as you finish your tasks.

    I have been working at Flipp full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Our founders are successful entrepreneurs who are inspiring through their relentless drive and passion. They have infused an owners culture across the company. This means that every member, regardless of position, department or tenure, has an opportunity to make a meaningful impact and has a mindset to win together. Department leads have the ability to create and shape their function from the ground up with autonomy and...

    Cons

    Flipp isn't for everyone - we are very driven, encouraged to look at ways to solve problems in a different way and work closely together to drive results. Team members need to roll up their sleeves to dig into the work. If you're not up for that, you won't be a fit.

    Advice to Management

    The company is still in a high growth phase, so the leadership team must continue to be laser focused on preserving and scaling the culture – that’s what really differentiates the company.

    I have been working at Flipp full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    - They put a good deal of focus in terms of advancing their employees, e.g. promoting from within, letting employees switch teams, training, etc - Good pay and perks (e g. paying for parking/transit and gym, WFH, flexible work hours and WFH)

    Cons

    - Not a lot of follow-through; there will be a lot of hype for a big initiative one month, and it will be dead the next - Often times it feels like everyone is running around like a decapitated chicken due to everything being in flux; this is the downside of a medium size tech company that constantly shuffles itself around

    I have been working at Flipp full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    I have worked at Flipp for over 3 years now and although there have been some changes that I don't 100% agree with or think were positives, I still never forget how lucky I am to work at a company where I don't dread coming into work everyday, where I genuinely like the people in my department and the people I work cross functionally with, where there is minimal politics (at least from where I sit), where people are rewarded...

    Cons

    -Changes to raises (moving to once per year rather than per term) was pretty unfair for a lot of people based on their start date. Some have been forced to wait close to 2 years for a raise based on this. - There seems to be a lack of motivation / energy / charisma / life - to the leadership group. When I first started I felt motivated and excited after leaving big scrum when the leaders would get up and speak. We...

    Advice to Management

    - Ensure the people who present at Big Scrum are charismatic speakers who create motivation and engagement from the team. -Don't be tied to tradition, we don't need to have a company wide meeting every Monday. - Don't be afraid to tell the truth. We hire smart people, when the truth is being veiled we know. -Figure out a way to make us feeling like we are winning again. We have an amazing team and we have encountered...

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

    Pros

    Well established culture, great benefits (snacks, drinks, work from home once a week)

    Cons

    Operations seems to be a silo at the organization, since there are many people in the same role there is a lot of competition for growth. Certain roles don’t give much opportunity to work cross functionally

    Advice to Management

    Provide more exposure of the overall team across the organization.

      Pros

      Free Friday lunches Process to bring on new folks is great Place to learn leadership, at least that's what the management thinks Check out the negative reviews, some of them are real

      Cons

      Declining user base and a product that is becoming increasingly useless All the best software managers and product managers have already left the party Not good at politics? Don't even think about this place! You can tell when the Glassdoor reviews are not real and it ain't helping nobody

      Advice to Management

      Keep it real! You are doing a poor job, so accept it! and deal with it!

      Benefits, and lots of events for employees. Nice office layout.

      Cons

      Started off as a great place to work, but now has plummeted and become the most toxic work experience. Just about everyone I know is looking for an out to work somewhere else. Management and executive leadership within Operations are very gossipy and immature, confidentiality is not maintained for employees (private details about employees and past employees are discussed) – senior management is known to go overboard...

      Advice to Management

      Stop the favouritism, it's obvious and unprofessional. So many people have been promoted without going through the process and being qualified. It's a shame as the team that works with them ends up suffering due to their shortcomings and egotistical plays on power dynamics of the role. Make sure to hire managers who have gone through manager training and been managers. It's a joke how quickly people are able to manage...
