      Pros

      -You can work from home -Opportunity to get out of the Ops

      Cons

      They have found a way to promote you to a Sr Designation within a role, where you get new tasks and responsibilities with a Zero pay increase. (they give a "Senior" designation, but this is an internal designation and not official) It seems like best friends vouch for each other to get promotions before other people who deserve it. The current system means essentially means that you are now no longer entitled to overtime pay, which literally the majority of the department has to do. High stressful environment which says transparency but in honesty the operations leadership more often than not gives out PR statements on key issues, that don't really address any of the key issues the employees are going through. Company perks such as Summer hours on Fridays and extended long weekends usually don't apply to Ops as we will have to work during these times anyway.

      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.

      Pros

      Great people work here. They are awesome and direct team members are supportive, easy to communicate with, always hands on deck team-attitude (this is true of 90% of teams at Flipp). Great benefits, decent payroll standards, used to have VERY fun summer and winter trips to Muskoka/Blue Mountain etc... awesome events planned out throughout the years. Very flexible in terms of Work From Home policies.

      Cons

      Where do I even start... A lot of things have been shifting for a while now. There is no priority set on certain teams right now, and lots of false hope is instilled in us in terms of vision and future opportunities of growth for most. Be cautious of this company - management pivots and changes their mind way too often, there is lots of miscommunication amongst management and different departments. There was a recent mass lay-off in the company, and people are waking up to just how much has changed in such a little amount of time. For people that have been here for a long time, it is a bit disappointing, but priorities are changing and you have to keep up or else this isn't for you.

      Pros

      Free snacks, drinks, office location, free parking or ttc reimbursement .work from home.

      Cons

      No vision, all of u sudden after spending so much, they realize thy have no money to keep people onboard .. let go of most senior designations to recent hires!! Well why hire if you had to fire? Playing with lives and careers of people ?? No clear vision no clear strategy no clear business projection. This company ison its way to closure.

      We shift focus A LOT. Everyone seems to be running on empty. No wonder we are not as engaged as we could be.

      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
