    Pros

    The accolades and awards speak for themselves: Points is a great place to be, to work and to create. Most people internalize and live the values of the company and try to provide innovative solutions with a smart and hard work approach A lot of loyalty industry veterans offer their insights and strategy so that you can learn not only in your individual profession, but overall. With loyalty becoming a bigger driver...

    Cons

    - Compensation isn't _bad_, but it's not at par with the ambitious plans for growth and talent acquisition - Growth opportunities and promos mostly respond to people leaving rather than actual personal growth or even business need - High rotation as of late, understandable (I guess) given the competitive local and industry market - A bit of an identity crisis as to the actual way to execute against the company's mission....

    Advice to Management

    Invest. But invest in the things that matter. Tech, tech savvy people, without stopping the good things that you're already doing. The opportunities ahead are huge, please don't let them slip. Keep being awesome and keeping everyone in the loop (assuming we all behave and keep things confidential). Few things are as exciting as knowing what other folks are up to and how can we all help one another.

    Pros

    Great culture, people really care about each other. Less so in winter, but lots of social activities in summer (mostly sponsored). Great benefits.

    Cons

    It's a public company, so that comes with some of the annoyances of working in a public company.
