    Pros

    Young and vibrant office full of people who want to "do" more. A social group of people who are mainly made of thirsty, hormonal men. Needless to say, it's pretty cliquey. In theory, this would be the perfect job if it wasn't for the awful management and lack of guidance. This is the place for you if you can be a "yes" man.

    Cons

    You're hired with false promises of growth, positivity, and stability. Unfortunately, you probably won't grow in your role, and you'll be surrounded by catty, child like behaviour, which causes unnecessary drama within the already young crowd. Ideally, there should be an organized scale of responsibilty in teams, but this isn't the case, as you will be constantly micromanaged, and fingers will be pointed at whoever "fails". Failure is also extremely transparent, and instead of working towards a positive fix - they use people who cannot reach the intangible goals as punching bags to threaten the rest of the employees. You can forget about constructive criticism, as management won't care for any great ideas you have, or they'll take them as their own. So, whoever wrote the "Terrapinn never says no to a good idea" review was definitely an internal plant by management. Pay is awful and don't dare ask for a raise, or even an acknowledgement of your accomplishments (It's never enough).

    Advice to Management

    Bring in someone who can speak with women, who is more open minded, and who doesn't consistently have to dominate a conversation. You know there is a problem when a "management" meeting is called and 85% of the office is in the room. P.S.: project directors shouldn't be considered "management". Revamp the hierarchy, and try to be more understanding of your employees....they're people, not robots.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Terrapinn.

    Interview

    Contacted about a week after submitted my application. First round phone interview that lasted about 25 minutes. Mostly resume walkthrough, then received an invitation to come in for an in-person interview in the office at the end of the call. In-person interview was pleasant and lasted about 45-60 minutes. Met with only one person.
