    Pros

    This review is for the Vancouver office
    -good work life balance
    -great office culture
    -good variety of projects
    -management cares about employee development (pay for courses, mentorship, professional development, lunch and learns)

    Cons

    -I believe the Vancouver office is an outlier, I've heard rest of Hatch does not have good company culture
    -pay in Vancouver office a bit lower than Toronto despite higher living costs (on average)
    -a bit of favouritism

    Advice to Management

    Please keep putting on all the great events you do. It makes such a big difference to work at a company with a great culture. Keep hiring good people and fight for higher wages for existing employees.
