    I have been working at Opencare full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is by far the most intelligent, genuine, and passionate group of people I have had the chance to work with. Being at Opencare has been inspiring, and has made me fall in love with what I do more than ever before. Highlights:

    *incredible personal and professional growth opportunities eg access to a performance psychologist on a regular basis, hard work is rewarded (promotions as early as 6 months in)

    *the company is growing rapidly and is very healthy, the runway and potential for for Opencare is amazing (this is going to be something big)

    *Leadership is outstanding - the founders are very experienced, focussed, 100% transparent about all aspects of the business

    *Ownership from day one, all the resources you need to help you reach potential you didn't realize you even had

    *very competitive compensation, equity, great benefits and perks (including in-office massages, daily catered organic lunch, unlimited vacation and PTO)

    *great work life balance - taking a proactive and holistic approach to your own health and well being is engrained in the culture, and leadership practices what they preach - if you look tired, you will be asked to take time off to rest.

    *every decision made in this place is data driven, deliberate, and well thought out.

    Cons

    *typical startup growing pains - every day presents a new challenge, process is constantly under construction, and you have to be scrappy

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    I have been working at Opencare full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - An extremely efficient team, minimal redundant process
    - People here are really smart and genuine, very good at what they are doing, love to share, trust each other. They are one of the major reason that I am happy at work every day.
    - A very diverse team so you can learn a lot of interesting things from them
    - Founders are open, transparent, honest, leading the team towards a good direction

    Cons

    - Things are less structural, less organized
    - People are self-starter so if you need a lot of guidance then probably here is not the most suitable place for you
    - High pressure, fast pace, come on, it's a startup!

    Advice to Management

    - Please continue to keep the transparent, open and honest culture, open to new /different ideas.
    - We can only perform at our best when we feel the lowest level of threads and be able to speak up. It's important that we can continue to learn from failure, instead of hiding them and only BS about the shiny achievements.

    Pros

    A team of incredibly smart and committed people. It's an amazing place to grow and be a part of something exciting.

    Team emphasis on data, and adapting business flow based on that data makes it a very stimulating and constantly changing environment to work in.

    Rigorous hiring process centered around culture means that everyone in the office is really humble, approachable, and open to communication.

    Cons

    Can't think of any cons.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    I have been working at Opencare full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - An extremely thoughtful team that is committed and excited about the problems we're trying to solve in healthcare
    - Culture fit is a top priority. Everyone on the team gets along. Definitely makes coming in to work a lot easier when the people you work with are not only really smart but you genuinely like them as people and want to hang out with them outside of work
    - Lots of cross-team collaboration
    - Supportive leadership team
    - Clear company goals and alignment
    - Cosy (open) office space
    - Healthy snacks

    Cons

    Opencare is still a relatively young startup with a younger team. But with that being said, what people lack in experience they make up for in their due diligence with research, talking to others in the industry and data gathering through testing.

    Advice to Management

    - Continue being transparent and honest about the business
    - Try and maintain the high standards for hiring
    - Continue building out long term strategy and plan

    Basically...keep doing what you're doing!

    I have been working at Opencare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Extreme focus on culture and employee growth. Founder 1-on-1s have been incredibly helpful in discovering and improving areas of both strength and weakness.

    100% genuine, intelligent, drama-free employees. Everyone is here to work to the best of their ability.

    Constantly challenging the “right” way to do things. Problems of last month become strengths the month after.

    Cons

    The only con to working here is length of meetings since everyone has lots to share. Actively trying to work on succinct communication & meeting style.

    Be prepared to get your hands dirty from day 1.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, you are pointing this team in the right direction!

    I have been working at Opencare full-time

    Pros

    Incredibly smart and talented team, full of humble and sincere people
    Founders are invested in your growth and push you out of your comfort zone
    Company is working on meaty problems that can have a very positive impact
    Team is constantly looking for ways to improve processes and evolve to increase productivity.
    Very rigorous hiring process means that we bring on not only talented people but also people who are a great fit with our company culture

    Cons

    Still a relatively young team, so processes are always evolving. Need to be able to thrive on change.

    Pros

    Best place to work in Toronto to grow as an individual and as a professional. Get to work with people smarter than you and learn new things on a daily basis.

    Cons

    You have to be prepared to give the best of yourself at all times, this is not an easy ride.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for enabling such a great company culture and for setting an high bar for ourselves. Keep up the great work!

    I have been working at Opencare full-time

    Pros

    Without exaggerating, this is by far the best place I've ever worked. The team is exceptional, and you can tell that the founders have spent a lot of time carefully hiring each member. The work here is meaningful and exciting, and the growth-first culture has made me a better person and a better professional. The pay is great in both salary and equity, despite being a relatively early startup (we are well funded). The founders also preach work-life balance very heavily and encourage a focus on your personal life/family/taking vacation.

    I would recommend this place to anyone, if you can get past the hiring process :)

    Cons

    There are not many cons. If you need a lot of direction and want a hands on manager, this may not be the place for you. There is a ton of autonomy and individual ownership, and the managers are more of leaders/coaches, so some might struggle if they have a hard time with self-direction.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Opencare is the biggest hidden gem in the Toronto tech community.
