    Hello! Maintaining a stable work/life balance is so important, especially now that we've moved to digital by default. Mental health will always come first; you need to relax and unwind so you're ready to tackle new challenges during your workday. Our Talent teams assess all roles within the company on a regular basis to ensure all compensation is competitive. However, do reach out to your HR Partner if you'd like to discuss your options! I can take your feedback regarding benefits and pass it along to our management team for review. In the meantime, be sure to check out the Digital by Default benefits section of the Vault to learn more, as there are lots of work from home benefits for our employees that have been added throughout the year. Thank you for leaving a review!

    Hi! When you join our Support Advisor team, you will be fully trained in how our platform works and how you can help our merchants. However, your learning would not stop after the training process: being a perpetual learner is a key skill we value highly. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the training process so much and found so much value there! Our metrics are there to let us know where we are thriving, and which areas need our attention. They are an important factor for assisting our leadership team in making informed decisions, but they are only one aspect of many that are taken into account. Context is key here, so it is best to chat with your Team Lead if there were any external factors making it difficult for you to meet targets. They are there to help! Thank you again for the review, and best of luck in the future!

    Hi, there! Thank you for sharing. Growth and development has been an area of focus within Shopify in the past year. With research, feedback and team input, we have really been able to concentrate on creating a better environment for growth within Shopify. It's true that our offices were an amazing addition to our workspace. This year has been challenging and we do understand that working completely remotely has its challenges. If you’re finding that you’re feeling isolated or having a rough time, don’t hesitate to reach out to your lead, to confide in your team virtually or even use the Shopify Sidekick program to connect with different people from within Shopify. Thank you again for sharing your feedback.
