    I have been working at Flipp full-time

    Pros

    CEO rules with an iron fist. People that don't understand should leave, I've learned so much from him and I can't thank him enough for his tutelage. When people confront you, just bury them in work until their complaint is no longer relevant. When you confront others and they ask you to justify it, just let them know that they don't understand, belittle them until they no longer have the will to contradict you. Brilliant!...

    Cons

    How could a place like this have any cons? It's been an amazing journey, I just hope that I can survive to see the next phase of brilliance.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing. As you've said, we must be relentless with your vision and we can't let things like facts slow us down.

    I have been working at Flipp full-time

    Pros

    Flipp is a great place for people who are really focused on team work and who want to build authentic relationships and solve massive problems. We all work very hard and I've been so impressed with the calibre of people around me every day. We work really hard to hold our standards high so we do have a work hard play hard culture. We've grown through the years and we're not a young startup anymore - that comes with...

    Cons

    There are lots of places to improve at Flipp like any organization. We could improve the way we look at our benefits like Goodlife, or the way that we do performance evaluations as there aren't any perfect ways to do that yet but we're looking to make it better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being humble, and keep driving improvements. We can only get better if we stay humble constantly.

    I have been working at Flipp full-time

    Pros

    - Flipp is a company that absolutely stays true to who it is. The founders and execs have built a culture that is lasting and they invest in their people and teams. - Flipp really is the type of company that will make room for you to grow if you showcase your value. If you raise your hand and show that you're willing to work hard, Flipp will make space for you to do your thing. I have always had my coaches be receptive...

    Cons

    - Like any startup, Flipp has gone through growing pains. There have been company pivots in strategy and vision and there have been times where changes in company strategy have affected the company in challenging ways. The ability to pivot and be agile is important here and I can see how the pace can be a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to bring in experienced outside leadership (already making strides in this area) who can help shape the overall vision for Flipp. Additionally, continue to invest in more junior level employees who are looking to grow their careers into the management level.

    I worked at Flipp full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The work is rewarding and the people are the nicest, youngest bunch you can find. The environment is undoubtedly the best I've been in, as I'm sure everyone who's been would tell you. Foosball, couches, snacks and lunches, and trips year-round.

    Cons

    The work for co ops can be repetitive by the forth month, but the team is always supportive for you expanding into other areas of development as long as you finish your tasks.

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

    Pros

    Our founders are successful entrepreneurs who are inspiring through their relentless drive and passion. They have infused an owners culture across the company. This means that every member, regardless of position, department or tenure, has an opportunity to make a meaningful impact and has a mindset to win together. Department leads have the ability to create and shape their function from the ground up with autonomy and...

    Cons

    Flipp isn't for everyone - we are very driven, encouraged to look at ways to solve problems in a different way and work closely together to drive results. Team members need to roll up their sleeves to dig into the work. If you're not up for that, you won't be a fit.

    Advice to Management

    The company is still in a high growth phase, so the leadership team must continue to be laser focused on preserving and scaling the culture – that’s what really differentiates the company.

    I have been working at Flipp full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have worked at Flipp for over 3 years now and although there have been some changes that I don't 100% agree with or think were positives, I still never forget how lucky I am to work at a company where I don't dread coming into work everyday, where I genuinely like the people in my department and the people I work cross functionally with, where there is minimal politics (at least from where I sit), where people are rewarded...

    Cons

    -Changes to raises (moving to once per year rather than per term) was pretty unfair for a lot of people based on their start date. Some have been forced to wait close to 2 years for a raise based on this. - There seems to be a lack of motivation / energy / charisma / life - to the leadership group. When I first started I felt motivated and excited after leaving big scrum when the leaders would get up and speak. We...

    Advice to Management

    - Ensure the people who present at Big Scrum are charismatic speakers who create motivation and engagement from the team. -Don't be tied to tradition, we don't need to have a company wide meeting every Monday. - Don't be afraid to tell the truth. We hire smart people, when the truth is being veiled we know. -Figure out a way to make us feeling like we are winning again. We have an amazing team and we have encountered...

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

    Pros

    - They put a good deal of focus in terms of advancing their employees, e.g. promoting from within, letting employees switch teams, training, etc - Good pay and perks (e g. paying for parking/transit and gym, WFH, flexible work hours and WFH)

    Cons

    - Not a lot of follow-through; there will be a lot of hype for a big initiative one month, and it will be dead the next - Often times it feels like everyone is running around like a decapitated chicken due to everything being in flux; this is the downside of a medium size tech company that constantly shuffles itself around

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

    Pros

    Well established culture, great benefits (snacks, drinks, work from home once a week)

    Cons

    Operations seems to be a silo at the organization, since there are many people in the same role there is a lot of competition for growth. Certain roles don’t give much opportunity to work cross functionally

    Advice to Management

    Provide more exposure of the overall team across the organization.
