    Great team, WLB but low compensation

    Pros

    Good culture and people who care about mentorship on my team. I feel valued by my team and good WLB

    Cons

    Seeing a trend of people leaving and now that more companies are hiring remotely, Shopify salaries are 20-30% lower compared to market. Talent and comp claims that we pay competitively but market data definitely says otherwise. Take a look on Blind, most posts are around how low salaries are. Raises and promos are also low, it's difficult to stay knowing that you're not fairly compensated.

    Autonomy to work the way you want to

    Pros

    There's minimal process and things are really up to your team on how you work. That sentiment is propagated from leadership down as well, to make sure that process doesn't get in the way of writing code quickly and efficiently. The ability to transition into different roles when you feel that you've stagnated in yours or see another interesting opportunity is also great, since you still feel incentivized to stay at the company due to the great culture and work/life balance.

    Cons

    Sometimes it's difficult to unhinge from work since there is a lot going on at once, and being permanent work-from-home introduces challenges around growth and connection with your team. All solveable things, but a challenge none-the-less.

    CEO Approval

    Pros

    The most supported I have ever felt in a workplace. They also compensate and promote based on impact, not seniority or tenure, which means hard work actually gets recognized.

    Cons

    Hiring and firing process can take a significant amount of time. 1-3 months to move to a new position after applying, several strikes required before someone is fired.
