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

    Pros

    - Truly believe and understand work-life balance - Live and breathe the values of diversity - Do their best to pair employees with projects, technologies, industries, and design challenges they are interested in - Care deeply about everyone

    Cons

    The company is growing quickly due to delivering well on projects, and so are experiencing growing pains, Figuring out how to rework office space, staffing projects up without hiring too quickly, etc. But consistently ask for feedback on how to handle this better.

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

    Pros

    As many people have said, Myplanet has an amazing culture of work life balance. They understand that people are people and not just commodities. They genuinely care about employee well being, health, happiness and fulfillment on the job. Projects are varied and challenging. There is always something interesting to work on, and perhaps at times that can also wind up being a con as well. Being a client shop, things...

    Cons

    Of course, nothing is completely perfect. As mentioned by others, it can be hard to find a room for meetings. Myplanet has faltered and stumbled in the past and gone through some growing pains. They still are as they find new areas to work in with new clients and new kinds of projects. As it expands, it is redefining its identity, which can be disorienting at times, and mean that learning takes place on project,...

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing for change and improvement. Look to your engineers to help redefine core aspects of how we sell software to clients, what we sell, and how we build, support and maintain solidly structured and designed software. Work on building up developer experience and culture the same way we have built up design/ux/ui culture and drupal culture. There are untapped resources within the company that could be leveraged...

    "They understand that people are people and not just commodities” Yes! This is exactly how we have worked to structure things from the get-go. I’m so glad that it’s being felt by the team as a whole. And as regards the developer community growth, I’d love to hear more thoughts on ...

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

    Pros

    1) Amazing work culture 2) Smart and collaborative peers 3) Open management, heading in the right direction 4) Work life balance (Really understand that employees have life outside work)

    Cons

    Right since the interview day till today, haven't found any major cons. There are of course downsides in any company but what matters is that the company or management acknowledges it and actively tries to resolve it. Myplanet does that very openly and efficiently with respect to gap in company processes or interview process or tech best practices.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up and don't trade-off on hiring smarter people for faster hiring.

    I have been working at Myplanet full-time

    Pros

    I love my team. I'm proud to be part of a company that's at the leading edge of how technology will change how we work. The leadership has successfully transitioned many incoming projects to have a heavy emphasis on data and AI, and they have built one of the leading Voice / Conversation practice areas in North America. The team tends to be modest, but they have amassed an impressive customer roster comprised of...

    Cons

    Never enough meeting rooms, though the office expansion should fix that . You need to be comfortable working in a cross-functional team. If you prefer working on your own, Myplanet may not be the right choice for you. The leadership team is very busy and so you need to be good at working with your team and troubleshooting on your own. Performance reviews give great feedback, but often arrive a month or two late.

    Advice to Management

    Build space to breath into your growth plans. Keep investing in culture, training and innovation.

    This kind of feedback makes me so happy: “I love my colleagues, and it's been years since I've been this energized by my work.” Our vision is to re-energize how people connect in the workplace and we firmly believe that starts here in our own workplace. I’m feeling re-energized just ...

    Pros

    The environment at the company enables you to grow on many different aspects. The fact we have mentors that help us grow is something I particularly enjoy. We often see new and exciting projects to work

    Cons

    Even though the company invest in many different aspects, sometimes it looks like they are trying to save money on details.

    Pros

    - The people at Myplanet are awesome. Everybody is really friendly and eager to help each other out. It feels like you're hanging out with your friends and doing really great work at the same time. - Great location. Located in the downtown core and close to transit, shops, restaurants, etc. - Open-concept office with adjustable standing desks - Flexible work arrangement so you're not chained to your desk - I feel...

    Cons

    - Smaller shop means that they're not as organized for training - if you don't know something you have to be comfortable finding answers on your own/trying things out - Leadership seem really busy so if you do need guidance it can be difficult to get the support you're looking for unless it's an emergency - Not very many meeting spaces or collaboration areas

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

    Pros

    - Myplanet has done an incredible job of hiring smart, fun, and caring people. It is truly like any other place I've worked. - The office is in a beautiful heritage building and everyone is provided a standing desk, ergonomic chair, a high performance computer, and all the peripherals you will need to do your job effectively. - There is a great deal of autonomy afforded to individual project teams.

    Cons

    - The company is going through significant growth which is great but the office is squeezed for space so there isn't a lot of quiet space available for those who need it. - In my limited experience, project teams can fluctuate quite a bit which makes delivery more difficult when you are balancing both a challenging project and changing people. - There could be a better sense of work-life balance. Staff are passionate...

    Advice to Management

    All in all, I really enjoy Myplanet as a place to work. It is a special place with a unique culture and I'm grateful for the opportunity. Here are my two pieces of advice: 1) Invest in quiet areas for the more introverted team members. 2) Make sure teams don't burn themselves - ensure projects have reasonable timelines and adequate staffing.
