    Cons

    - Work can ramp up and down quickly, meaning some days might be very quiet while others are extremely busy - this doesn't suit everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is very open at the moment between the Leadership Team and employees, as we continue to scale as an organization I think it's important to find new ways to ensure this continues.

    Cons

    - With a growing team, we've seen culture shift and re-stabilize. - We're agile, so we pivot when needed which may not suit those looking for a product focused, static org structure and skills base

    Advice to Management

    - Continue to grow our team with our shared values in mind, to ensure our culture and values are maintained

    Pros

    Been working at Myplanet for a year and a half. The work is challenging but extremely rewarding and opportunities to grow present itself at every step (combined with some of the best leadership I've seen in tech). The biggest pro of working at Myplanet is that it is truly a learning organization. The company is invested in learning, improving processes, and helping teams/individuals upskill and grow. There is a growth...

    Team is growing in size and space is limited at our downtown HQ but that is changing as we're expanding our space downtown!

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

    Pros

    Lots of energy and great client brands. And working on the latest tech. It's cool to read about interfaces like conversation and voice, or enablers like AI, and then come to work and see them being proposed, then developed. Having lots of clients and partners internationally broadens the scope of work too.

    Cons

    It's a fast, growing company so not all of the details and processes are ironed out or thought of. And there will often be last minute things. It's an Agile shop but you'll need to be agile too. If you've worked for companies before with a hundred people or so, you'll get it.

    Advice to Management

    It's not arriving that's important, but the steps you take in getting there.

    Pros

    - Truly believe and understand work-life balance - Live and breathe the values of diversity - Do their best to pair employees with projects, technologies, industries, and design challenges they are interested in - Care deeply about everyone

    Cons

    The company is growing quickly due to delivering well on projects, and so are experiencing growing pains, Figuring out how to rework office space, staffing projects up without hiring too quickly, etc. But consistently ask for feedback on how to handle this better.

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

    Pros

    As many people have said, Myplanet has an amazing culture of work life balance. They understand that people are people and not just commodities. They genuinely care about employee well being, health, happiness and fulfillment on the job. Projects are varied and challenging. There is always something interesting to work on, and perhaps at times that can also wind up being a con as well. Being a client shop, things...

    Cons

    Of course, nothing is completely perfect. As mentioned by others, it can be hard to find a room for meetings. Myplanet has faltered and stumbled in the past and gone through some growing pains. They still are as they find new areas to work in with new clients and new kinds of projects. As it expands, it is redefining its identity, which can be disorienting at times, and mean that learning takes place on project,...

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing for change and improvement. Look to your engineers to help redefine core aspects of how we sell software to clients, what we sell, and how we build, support and maintain solidly structured and designed software. Work on building up developer experience and culture the same way we have built up design/ux/ui culture and drupal culture. There are untapped resources within the company that could be leveraged...

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

    Pros

    1) Amazing work culture 2) Smart and collaborative peers 3) Open management, heading in the right direction 4) Work life balance (Really understand that employees have life outside work)

    Cons

    Right since the interview day till today, haven't found any major cons. There are of course downsides in any company but what matters is that the company or management acknowledges it and actively tries to resolve it. Myplanet does that very openly and efficiently with respect to gap in company processes or interview process or tech best practices.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up and don't trade-off on hiring smarter people for faster hiring.
