    Pros

    - Many challenges and many problems to be solved in tech. A true engineer's playground. - New leadership team with genuine interest in growing the company - Backing by CVC who are investing in both people and technology - Growing, starting a new office aa well so this is the time to get in

    Cons

    - The scars from tech debt created over the last decade make you wonder if the systems and technology would ever improve. - Engineering is high majority of males - Most of the engineers who built the systems have left so it can be hard to find answers in some cases

    Decent, but not amazing place to work.

    Nov 10, 2018 - Software Developer in Toronto, ON
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - smart friendly people to work with - decent amount of freedom when choosing technologies to work with - wide variety of programming languages and technology teams to work on - most of the time a fairly relaxed work environment Overall I'd actually have given a 2.5 star rating it was an option, 3 is too high.

    Cons

    - formerly a tech first company, now more of a business first; this certainly makes sense from a management point of view, but it is worse from an engineer's point of view - new reorganization of teams into something more cross-functional has made it significantly harder for developers to do work; once again from a product/project management point of view things may be easier, but for engineers it is now harder to do our jobs - significant lack of focus on code quality a lot of the time, more of a get it done now rather than correctly way of doing things
