    Avantages

    There are still some smart and friendly people there.

    Inconvénients

    This company had a very good culture, with a lot of smart employees and became the worst company I've ever worked for. They imposed on us a SCRUM methodology which does not respect any of the values of the Agile Manifesto: meetings became very frequent (sometimes we even had 2 weeks full of meetings), micro-management is starting (management starts asking employees to write down what they do every hour of every day), no change is accepted (the retrospective is basically useless). The management says it's the responsibility of the employees to fix the mistakes made by them, yet they don't accept any of the proposed changes. They imposed on us tools that made the life of employees miserable: the feedback loop became very long, making it very inconvenient for the employees to test their changes. And when you tell that to management, they say you're lying about it and just slacking off. We use to have technical team leadership but they were replaced (after most of them quit the company) by non-technical team leadership, so they don't know what their team is doing and thus, don't trust them. This company use to have a culture of "I don't care how you do your work" and now has a culture of "I don't care about you". The technical team leadership had a cooperation attitude with their team, but the new non-technical team leadership have a confronting, non-trusting attitude towards their employee. And the employees don't trust the new management either because of all the bad decisions they made. All in all, in the last 3-4 months, close to 15 employees who worked more than a year left the company, some even without having found a new job (during the pandemic, that says it all!). I've never seen a company were so many employees rage-quit. There's no recognition of the work you did by management anymore: they now just tell you how dissatisfied they are with your work. The management decisions are so illogical that I'm wondering if they want to move the work to the new India office and close the Montreal office. This company use to have many technical challenges and opportunities to learn, but not anymore. Now, the work is repetitive and boring. And management don't care when you tell them, as though they don't care about so many employees leaving the company.

    Avantages

    The work is very interesting and is constantly evolving. All projects have relatively high visibility across the organization, which allows you to really take ownership of your work. Management is very receptive to suggestions and concerns, and the organization itself rewards good work quite well. The people you work with are easily the smartest and most driven in the business. Even non-analytics folks are quite data-savvy. The company itself is growing at light speed.

    Inconvénients

    There can be a steep learning curve at the beginning, and much of your success depends on your work ethic. There is relatively little to no downtime, which while stressful at some times, is what lends to the excitement and dynamism of the office. Due to high growth, there's also a few growing pains.

    Everything. Outdated technology, no processes, disregard for privacy laws, wrong people in management positions, passive aggressiveness is rampant amongst colleagues, lack of morale, lack of communication, I could go on forever.
