I have been working at Elastic Path Software

Pros

- This is a fun place to show up and work at everyday. The culture makes it enjoyable. They know how to have fun and isn't that a bonus often under appreciated...I've worked at places without a fun culture.

- The product seems to be well accepted in the market place. They are moving away from a pricey build model that requires expensive PS to also encompass a packaged and Cloud offering. This could and should be huge for the company.

- We seem to have some fun event planned every week to build company moral.

Cons

I have read what people call a less then seasoned executive staff. This could be true in some roles but certainly not in others. The President/COO and CTO as an example are as seasoned as anyone could expect. Some other roles this could be true in but then you could say this company allows you to advance your career that other companies may not be able to offer.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Read the feedback that has been left and make a business decision if what is said is accurate. keep in mind that usually unhappy employees (usually former employees) often are the one's who write in this forum.

Don't be afraid to grow through investment. Might not be the time to IPO but it seems like the Product could knock out some of the bigger competitors. A huge investment might be the thing that pushes EP to the next level.

    I have been working at Elastic Path Software full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Chance to work with incredibly smart and friendly developers who are always available to help when you need it. Culture is fun and engaging; lots of people stay on Friday evenings for a drink or to play Rock Band together, and the staff events are a blast. Employees work hard because they believe in the company and have the opportunity to try out leading edge technologies and frameworks. Many grass-roots initiatives by developers have become key parts of the Elastic Path platform.

    Cons

    If you are not self-motivated, you will struggle at Elastic Path. Employees who take initiative to learn on their own and occasionally join the available lunch-and-learns and/or lunchtime development groups are recognized and rewarded. A new business-driven training system is being implemented but is not yet available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep being open with employees about company direction and successes/failures. There have been some direction changes in the past few years, but now it feels like the company finally has a product (DCAPI) that differentiates us from the competition.

    I have been working at Elastic Path Software full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The entire technical team at this company is extremely talented: smart, knowledgeable, young, and driven/motivated. If you love the craft of agile software development you will love it here. There is a real "do it right the first time, no shortcuts" mentality. Great place to learn.

    Cons

    Relatively low pay compared to many other software developer opportunities in Vancouver considering the high expectations. Depending on the team you're in, hours may not be very flexible and overtime is expected.
