    I have been working at Unito full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The way I see it, the three attributes that make a great business (from an employees' perspective) are the following: 1. Fun vibe 2. Hard work and performance tracking 3. Work-life balance Too often, I've seen businesses fall into the trap of forcing employees to chose only two of the three attributes. Work hard, play hard, but you're first in last out. Or have a fun environment and great work-life balance, but everything else tanks. At Unito, we're so lucky to have all three of those attributes. I'm impressed every. single. day. by how smart and hardworking my colleagues are. The vibe is always light, we have so much fun together, but we all have families that we go back to in the evening (at a decent hour!!!!) I was also pleasantly surprised to see how structured and well-thought-out processes are at Unito. It's a rare thing for a startup, but it makes it so much easier not only to get your work done but also to understand how everything you're doing fits into the bigger picture. Compensation is transparent in the business, which I find removes considerable stress and makes it so that there is very little in the company that is taboo.

    Cons

    Despite my glowing review of their processes, one thing does stand out to me as being an important process that needs to be addressed and fixed: how they let people go.

    Pros

    The transparency within Unito is great, it allows for constant development and growth. The teams are supportive, and the managers are ready to adapt their management style to fit your needs. There's so much room to grow within the company, and there's also so many opportunities for you to help the company grow. I feel that my opinions and suggestions are heard and valued.

    Cons

    I have nothing to put here at the moment.

    I have been working at Unito full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It's an extremely well organized startup with an existing Product/Market fit : - Data driven decision making - no politics! - Transparency: information like salaries are available to employees and communication flows freely across all levels - Diversity: +45% of women & 55% of women in leadership position, 10+ different countries of origin for employees - Shifted smoothly to WFH during the COVID-crisis (all things considering) - Addressable market is sizeable and will continue to grow in the coming years

    Cons

    - Plans can change as we adapt to the market situation. It's very normal considering the stage of the business - but if you are in search of stability, it's probably not the right place for you.

    I have been working at Unito full-time

    Pros

    A place with a solid company culture. They have the perfect blend between human-centric respect and the drive and vision of a company that can revolutionize their market and industry. Here are a few highlights of working at Unito: - Transparency. All important data are all available at any time. Sales, profits, salaries, expenses, projections. No hidden agenda, management and executive try to be as transparent as they can. - Area of responsibilities. Every employee has at least one area where he/she is responsible for. That enhances the sense of purpose , mastery and expertise. - Recruitment and hiring process is tight. Every new hire has passed through a 'Pilot project' where they collaborate on real projects before receiving an offer. This helps build solid teams that will align quickly to deliver value. - Teamwork is the first option. If work can be done and assigned to a team, it is normally the preferred way. Working and learning with colleagues enhance motivation and growth mindset. - Properly funded. Great investors who knows the reality of SaaS companies.

    Cons

    - It's a startup. Meaning changes and adaptation is at the core of the daily life. If you are looking for normalized workflow that hasn't change in years, this might not be the perfect fit. - The product is great and promising , but still in its 'market fit' phase. Meaning that product new features and quick adjustments are a bit more important than stability and performance. Resilience to imperfect sides of a product is a most at this stage of maturity of such powerful platform.

    Pros

    Culture is everything here. You feel like you're part of a team and people have your back. The intense transparency is refreshing; when someone messes up, whether they're a developer or an executive, you're told about it. Salaries are incredibly competitive, and the benefits are fantastic. I can focus on doing my best work because I'm supported and encouraged.

    Cons

    Can't think of anything here.

    Pros

    * No stress - there is always someone to support and help you if needed * Average age in the company is quite young - between 20 ish and 30ish. * A lot of transparency and decisions are freely discussed. The overall company strategy on short and mid-term is shared and freely challenged/discussed with the CEO if we thing there is areas of improvement ( And most of the time around a beer or coffee - it s really chill to work at this place)

    Cons

    I have noticed nothing so far

    I have been working at Unito full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It's a really great place to work! It's a very organized start-up and you will be working in a really dynamic environment. The team is great, everybody is an expert on their field and works hard so you get the feeling we are all moving in the same direction. Everyone's ideas and opinions are valued and listened to so you can have a big impact on the company.

    Cons

    I am not sure if it's a con but working in a high-paced environment, where you have to quickly adapt it's not for everyone! There is always a lot to do, which is great but it also requires juggling many things at once, prioritizing and changing direction when needed. I like challenges so I find it very inspiring, if you are up for a challenge, come join us!

    I have been working at Unito full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The team is fantastic. They're careful in hiring, and the result is a team that loves working together, and often spends time with each other outside work hours. The culture is transparent and direct - work is to be critiqued, while people are not. Your ideas and thinking will be challenged in the best way possible. The pace of learning is high, and can be as deep as you like. You won't find a better place to learn.

    Cons

    The startup pace isn't for everyone. It's a VC-backed company, and so growth is the primary goal. The environment of transparency will be tough for those who can't separate their thinking and ideas from their perception of their own value.

    Nothing I have noticed so far!
