- Great work culture and company transparency - Supportive team members and upper management - Autonomy for conducting your work and creating your career path - Good health benefits and tech allowances
- You need to be comfortable thriving in a non-hierarchical organization - Since it is a small company, it naturally has less career advancement opportunities

Valuable project experience, Mentorship and Personal coaching session.
I can't think of any cons for now.

There's a reason why they've been on the Great Place to Work list in Canada for the last 9 years. Habanero is the best place I've ever worked. You can show up as your full, whole self and do great work that you're passionate about. Some really exciting projects and strong teams across functional areas. Lots of variety in projects and clients. Love the human-centered philosophy and design approach. The Toronto office is open concept with break-out rooms and board rooms, a really close-knit team filled with awesome people. A casual and genuine work environment. Purpose-driven, great culture, awesome people, opportunities to grow and learn, flexible schedule, options to work from home, flexibility to work from other offices, technology allowance, health spending account, extended medical and dental coverage, profit sharing, RRSP matching, fully stocked kitchens, bagel day on Tuesdays, Friday team lunches, cake on birthdays, beer fridge, flat structure, autonomy, each employee has a career coach, a collaborate approach towards work, high-functioning teams, a supportive work environment where people genuinely care about each other.
Can't think of any cons... There is a lot of collaboration across different national time zones (Vancouver, Winnipeg, & Calgary), so one sometimes might work a bit later in the EST (there is a lot of flexibility with schedules though so it all evens out). Salary base might not be the highest, but the compensation package as a whole is very competitive. If you're looking for your 'tribe', and a place to dig into your passion and purpose, Habanero is the right spot for you.Habanero Consulting Response4y

Great culture. Awesome people. Ethical.
Overall a great company to work for, but a bit volatile and unpredictable.

Habanero really embraces every employees' desire for self-actualization. As an employee I have the autonomy to grow my career in the direction that I'm most fired-up about. Habanero really lets me bring my whole self to work; they recognize that I have a life outside of work and have benefits that support that.
We're a lattice organization with an nontraditional management structure. There are no clear paths for career growth and advancement; you have to make your own way. If you're looking for clear job titles and a corporate ladder, you won't find it here.1

People are in service to each other. Hi levels of psychological safety, trust and dependability, transparency, autonomy, work-life harmony (flexible working arrangements), super smart and caring colleagues, ability to build mastery and align purpose...I could go on
Career progression can be challenging for people who need clear lines and structure, if you like risk-taking or making fast decisions this might not be the place for you (very collaborative and thoughtful process)2Habanero Consulting Response4y
Thank you for leaving this review, we appreciate your feedback! As we are continuously looking to better our approaches, we still have work to do. Room to innovate and better ways to serve the communities we belong to are totally worthy goals that align pretty well with our vision and purpose. It's great to hear your appreciation for the many positive elements of the Habanero environment. Due to our collaborative and flat structure, Habanero best serves those who are self-sufficient and passionate about the work they do, which of course isn't for everybody. Thanks again for your review and we wish you the best in your career journey.

I have only been here a short while, but it has been a company I have wanted to work at for several years. I can honestly say that its even better from the inside than it looks like from the outside. Once you get past the very tough interview process, you welcomed by an incredible group of people. Again keeping this very short as I have only been her a while, but so far so good!
