    I have been working at VelocityEHS full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    When I started at VelocityEHS, the President attended my first onboarding meeting and communicated the two most important things to our company: Employee retention, and customer retention. Over the years that I have worked here it's clear that this was not an empty tagline but a philosophy that drives every action taken. No company can be perfect, issues will arise but what I can say is when they do the support for both customers and employees alike is sincere and immediate. I have seen all departments at all levels come together to support customers to drive their success. I have seen the same and personally experienced it as an employee as well. While the option to work from home is presented the vast majority of us come in because it's enjoyable, collaborative, and we've developed great relationships with each other. The work our leadership and product team are putting in to drive our customers' success is exciting. As a salesperson I can't wait to start delivering on the value that will be provided in our road map over the next 1-5 years.

    Cons

    6 years and as mentioned nothing can be perfect but where bumps arose support was provided to iron them out.

  5. "Oakville: Awesome culture with lots of growth opportunities"

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at VelocityEHS full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Team is unbelievably friendly - down to earth is an understatement - They know how to retain talent. People don't think about leaving because they continually grow within the company. The average tenure here is high (5-15+ years) which is rare for the software industry. - Very lucrative opportunity for sales folks. Compensation is good. The commission plan is realistic and attainable (reps have consistently hit quota and attended President's Club on a year by year basis) - Management is awesome - they give you the freedom to succeed within your own right and are an open door if you need guidance or have recommendations to improve. - Working is "fun" again. At old jobs, I used to dread going in to the office, but now I wake up with energy and get excited to be with my team. - From a sales perspective: the funnel is getting filled and no prospecting needs to be done for enterprise reps. - Growth both from a company level and a career level. Velocity is growing through acquisitions and organic expansion. This also means that employees who are proving their worth are moving up the ranks subsequently. - From a sales perspective, the training program is very effective.

    Cons

    - It can be a long commute for those travelling from the downtown core or outside of Oakville - but it is a 3 minute walk from the Oakville GO station for those taking the train in. - Alignment with other departments could be promoted more. - Oakville office, Chicago HQ, and the Ann Arbour HQ could have better alignment.

    I have been working at VelocityEHS full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work hours Work from home options Company breakfast competitions every month Movie nights/Pizza nights/Food truck days/Popsicle days Boat cruises/Christmas parties Bonuses/Raises Full Benefits The most wonderful group of people I have ever encountered Management who lead instead of micromanage A solid business plan and superior ambition to be the best All employees are valued and respected Everyone pulls their weight plus some Fantastic training program Structured work environment Only work here if you're willing to contribute positively to the company and be part of a strong team

    Cons

    The structure here may not be for everyone. Its very bureaucratic in the sense that everything has a process and that process must be adhered to. No willy-nilly changes at your discretion. If you would rather work in a fast paced environment and have things thrown at you from all sides then maybe choose somewhere else.

    I have been working at VelocityEHS full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    After spending one year working here I can confidently say this is the warmest, friendliest, and most welcoming company I have worked for in my 10-year professional career. Aside from exceptional mentorship, the overall vibe/energy in the office is not only what attracted me in wanting to pursue a career at VelocityEHS, but allowed me to thrive here. VelocityEHS has some of the most passionate people that sincerely care about helping people and companies solve their compliance challenges and making the world a better place. Everyone is approachable; more than willing to provide a helping hand, and share best practices based on their experience. Management genuinely want their employees to succeed and they provide as much help as possible to ensure their success. Another substantial positive at VelocityEHS is that there is a core belief in work/life balance and quality of life. - RRSP matching; - Free gym membership; - Great benefits package; - Brand new and bright office; - Ergo-friendly stand-up desks; - Great laptop/hardware; - Company iPhone 6s; - Across the street from Oakville GO station; - Trips to Mexico for meeting Sales targets; - Rapidly growing and profitable company with backing from a publicly traded company; - Exceptional product that sells itself

    Cons

    Personally, I do not have cons. I have not had any negative experiences while working here.
