    Pros

    - great culture that promotes personal/skills growth - autonomy and no micro-management - everyone is eager to help each other; encourages sharing of ideas/opinions

    Cons

    - individual offices can reduce collaboration between teams - not a lot of vertical opportunities (promotions)

      I worked at Safe Software full-time

      Pros

      There are a lot of office-wide events that allow colleagues to get to know one another and mingle a bit. It's great to see different departments sitting down for lunch together.

      Cons

      Lower compensation than other companies.

      Pros

      Excellent work-life balance Profit sharing Amazing work culture Start of the art office coming late 2018 Management encourages creative approaches to problem-solving Consistent feedback from management

      Cons

      Low pay compared to other tech cities Office location isn't in Downtown Vancouver (if that area is desired)

      Advice to Management

      Continue the excellent work you're doing. D&D have done their best to impose their philosophies on how a company should be run, and the rest of management are doing their best to maintain them.

      Most of our employees have said that the private office space is something they really value. One of the reasons that Safe will be moving to a new building (2018) is that we want to continue to offer this environment to our team members as we continue to grow in size. It is definitely ...
