      Pros

      * Great benefits * Good intro level salary * Culture supports personal and professional growth * Great coworkers

      Cons

      * This is a position where you are always learning. You will never be an expert but I find it a great way to stay consistently interested in my work. You have to be someone who enjoys constant change to be comfortable here.

      Pros

      Open communication, great work culture, great benefits and perks. Everyone I have met has been pleasant.

      Great Company, Unique Sales Role

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Great benefits - Smart coworkers - Interesting customers - Strong product

      Cons

      - A ton of luck based on inbound rotater for sales leads - Some leads literally close in one day, some take months, so this has a big impact on your number based on what lands in your pipe - Sales cycle wasnt well defined while I was there, it was very much about figuring out how to land those quick deals, as opposed to tightening sales process - Low level managers lacked experience and guidance in my opinion, although they were nice people and meant well

      Good salary, great culture, great benefits and ample vacation time

      Pros

      Shopify is growing there is a lot to contribute and build. The structure in my opinion is great and they constantly do re-orgs (when necessary). They always put their employees first and have great benefits.

      Cons

      Might feel too comfortable at times and TC is low in comparison to USA

      Only good if you're very junior

      Pros

      - great benefits - work from home flexibility - strong ERG community

      Cons

      - well below market for the role - very repetitive day to day, no ability to influence strategy - useless interview styles that are 1 hour long and do not produce strongest ROI - teams are full of junior people with zero recruitment experience. they prefer this as they can pay them low, and train them up over time - many managers are all home grown, therefore no outside experience, lots of nepotism
