    I have been working at Vendasta full-time

    Pros

    If you work hard, put in the effort to learn and grow and can effectively collaborate with others, the sky is the limit with Vendasta. As they've continued to grow, their people have remained the priority. There is plenty of opportunity to "up your game" through internal mentors, taking courses or going to events.

    Cons

    If you don't like change, Vendasta isn't the place for you. This is a high-paced environment where change occurs quickly and often.

    Pros

    Very few companies are at this level of hypergrowth, and it's causing Saskatoon to become a magnet, bringing the brightest talent from all across the world here. You will work with some of smartest and most passionate people you'll ever meet. Creativity, diversity, and agility are all strong virtues of the company. A big part of Vendasta's culture is based on learning, so personal and professional development opportunities are abundant. Like the other reviews mention, you'll be given various perks, like food, coffee, and team building social events. One thing I haven't seen the other reviews mention is Vendasta's willingness to admit mistakes, and I have seen a few during my time here. The company will admit where it went wrong, and will seek out where to improve. I've really appreciated this modesty.

    Cons

    If change is not something that you are comfortable with, you will likely struggle with the agility of this company. While Vendasta's vision has remained constant, how it's being executed is always being adjusted. Roles and responsibilities frequently adapt to this.

    We wouldn't be who we are without good folks like you around! Thank you for the kind review! We're with you: It can be tough to remember everyone's name, especially when we're so spread out (especially now). Don't worry, we're all going to stumble on names from time-to-time!

    Thank you for leaving such a balanced review for us. While we're really happy to know you enjoyed your team and saw the growth opportunity, we're sorry to know you weren't satisfied with your compensation. We always research and ensure our salaries are competitive in market, and we're proud to have introduced flex bank as part of our benefits plan, which was a big request from Vendastians. I hope that if you ever join us again, you'll be pleased with the changes.

    Thank you so much for the positive review. We're equally as thrilled to have great team members like you around to help us grow. We recognize that growing a company as quickly as we are creates some pains along the way. Don't ever hesitate to bring up your concerns during your weekly one-on-ones. There may be ways we can help reduce the stress. After all, we're on this rocket ship together!
