      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

      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.

      Easily the best job I've ever had...

      Pros

      The best culture of any company I've ever seen Great strategic vision - excited about what we're building Love all of my colleagues Find the work challenging and rewarding Find myself excited to get to work every day (first time I've had that) Love all the people programs they're rolling out Amazing work / life balance (leans more towards work, but I like that) Very transparent leaders

      Cons

      Wish there was some more social office interaction (but realize they're working on that given COVID) - but I do miss the snacks :) Feels like there's a fair amount of turnover at the junior level It's more of a software company supporting big companies than you understand from the outside in

      Pros

      Great Culture at Flipp along with some of the most amazing people I have ever had the chance to work with. Truly a place where they teach you skills that will help you be successful for the rest of your professional career - whether thats at Flipp or somewhere else. Great coaching from the managers and they truly care about your growth. During these difficult times the leadership the executives have demonstrated is extremely admirable. No job cuts at all during covid and they really put the people first at Flipp.

      Cons

      If you are not a driven individual or if you are looking for a typical 9-5 career Flipp is not the place for you - work life balance can sometimes get unbalanced depending on your role
