    I worked at Vidigami full-time

    Pros

    Incredible work atmosphere and work/life balance. The team dynamic at this company is the best I have ever experienced. You get the feeling that everyone is working together to solve whatever problem the team is faced with. The core dev team of front end, back end, and QA are in constant communication, giving a real feeling that you're involved in every part of what is going in.

    The mentorship on the dev team is also amazing. The senior engineers on the team are highly competent and always willing to explain how elements of the system work (though sometimes in too much detail). The team here is constantly improving and investing in professional development.

    Cons

    Sometimes the dev team has difficulty distributing the work between engineers. I think this is a growing pain that comes with being a startup. If something is high enough priority, there can sometimes be members of the team who are extremely busy, while others do very little.

    Meetings tend to last longer than they should.

    Advice to Management

    Try to distribute the knowledge of the core systems among more team members so that work can be distributed easier.

    Limit meeting times.

    I have been working at Vidigami full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Whenever anyone asks me what I like best about working at Vidigami, I don't have to hesitate to say it's the people. A balanced, multi-cultural, and diverse team that are proactive and motivated.
    - Great office location in Kits
    - Opportunity to take on exciting projects and learn
    - Always have access to management
    - Great team dynamic
    - No finger pointing, the team all work together to achieve mutual goals

    Cons

    As the company grows, new processes need figuring out, and they are sometimes slow to happen as there are a few occasions where there have been "too many cooks". But it's changing. Management are not tied to the past, they see the need for constant innovation in company processes. Communication across teams during this time also has room for improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Incredible Team, Career Growth Opportunity, Location, Exciting Product, Big Things Happening Here, Vacation + 1 week off during the December holidays!

    Cons

    I've been here 5 months now and I really can't think of any! Some days are a bit more stressful than others and there will be bumps on the road from time to time but that's the norm for every startup I've ever worked in.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the open door policy and the support you're providing to your employees. As a new hire, I have felt from day one that I'm being set up for success and that my voice and ideas are being heard. It's an exciting time to be a part of this company!

    I have been working at Vidigami full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Vidigami has a fantastic team which is diverse and friendly in every department. I am constantly learning a little from each person, specifically from the other developers, who are always kind enough to share their expertise on different technologies. Project-wise, I find myself immersed in challenging projects that keep me motivated.

    Cons

    We use unique programming libraries and it could take developers a few days to get used to them.

    Advice to Management

    Management cares about its employees and I feel it should stay this way. Keep organizing work events every so often to bring the different departments together. I have never had such a strong sense of belonging in a company until now.

    I have been working at Vidigami full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    What stands out most for me at Vidigami is the multi-cultural and multi-talented team - everyone is friendly, supportive of each other, and passionate about the product and needs of its customers. Continuously and proactively working together to solve problems. There is also a great work ethic (daily stand-ups, sprint-planning and regular meetings) and a super team culture (team meals, activities, and celebrations).

    Cons

    Balancing sales pipeline with product pipeline, and sometimes tricky managing needs and expectations of multiple stakeholders, but always reaching a viable solution in the end.

    Advice to Management

    Management has showed great leadership. Respectful, caring, and sensitive to team needs and capacities. My only advice is to offer a little more coaching and direction for recruits who are new to the industry and our processes.
