    Hi there - thanks for sharing your perspective. I agree there are too many meetings. We have a policy that no meeting is compulsory, but I agree we need to find ways to make it happen more often, and rationalize the number of meetings. This is an issue I've heard of at every company I ever worked at, so either we all have it, or maybe it's got to do with me!!! (but I wasn't in charge at many of those other companies, so I want to believe I'll be part of the solution not the problem!)

    Amazing Environment

    Pros

    The company culture is amazing, the management takes care of employees exceptionally well. They ensure that the resources have a proper work-life balance. With unlimited leaves, paid vacation, work from the anywhere-at-any time you want policies, they have created an amazing environment. Relay goes above and beyond to align the work with our career goals. There is no micro-management and this helps the team to be more productive. It feels great to work with a management that is transparent and communicates well with the employees.

    Cons

    None! I love working here.

    Wow I want to work there! Oh wait... I do!!! :) We try our best. Sometimes though, I admit I micro-manage. It depends on the topics and my priorities. The rest of the leadership is awesome at not micro-managing, though - I made sure of that! :)

    Pros

    Hi - Relay CEO here. We build the next generation of insurance and reinsurance solutions for brokers. We help reduce the cost of insurance so more businesses can get insured. We also seek to create a leading culture in Canada. Our core principles are anchored in Diversity and Inclusion, Customer Excellence, Empathy and "Delivering Magic". We encourage our team to "Be Your Very Selves" and bring your differences to work. We don't just change insurance with our product, but with our culture.

    Cons

    We are a technology venture and we move fast. We emphasize work-life balance and always seek ways to respect it, but at times we have deadlines and clients needing some urgent work. We can always improve.

    CEO

    Management response here: Relay is one of a few software companies that really pays attention to work-life balance and have taken concrete steps to ensure our employees have time to resource themselves. Unlimited vacations and time-off, work-from-anywhere and at your preferred hours, frequent discussion and action to further improve in that regard, and we ask almost every Friday whether anyone feels compelled to complete weekend work, so we can find alternative solutions. We will encourage our employees to provide their reviews so job applicants have a wider range of perspectives than this single review.
