    Pros

    Incredible culture and benefits. Exciting projects with cutting edge technology, this firm is one to watch in the future. Takes technological ingenuity to new heights while maintaining an incredibly positive place to spend your days.

    Cons

    Sometimes, it's cloudy and you cannot see very far from the wraparound penthouse deck. There is occasionally too much delicious catered food and its hard to have the will power to not eat all day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I admire the integrity in which you do business with, I would enjoy even more lunch and learns to further my career development.

    Pros

    Their are no pros for this company.

    Cons

    Jiffy has completely scammed at least 15 overseas programmers I know that I have worked with. They have kept them on the leash for months and months and them string them along with promises of payment, when in reality, they have no real intention of doing so. They get all the work they can from people and let them work until they quit.

    Notice that all the good reviews on this site are specifically from Canada, where they are located, so you know they are fake reviews. Being from the US myself, I have seen it first hand. Even the threats of legal action barely get anything done simply because they don't care about legal action from places like Pakistan (which is where most of their employees come from).

    Being on the inside, I have come to know directly that they pay poorly, charge outrageously, and the top guy treats everyone like crap.

    Hopefully this review will make a difference because I've seen this non payment issue going on for at least a year now and some of my personal friends were affected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit making excuses, pay your employees what they worked for, and stop making promises you have no intention of keeping!

    This review was posted on the same day as the last, and unfortunately isn't any more legitimate.

    Our company has strict policies for the payment of overseas workers. Certainly there are

    Pros

    Good office location, right in Coal Harbour. They provide lunches for employees every day, but the food is all the same.

    Cons

    They don't pay!!! Very dishonest managment, one lie after another; dont sign the former agreement - promissed to do it, found reasons to postpone and after all said they wouldn't do it all and didn't pay what was earned. A lot of people quit (10 people in the office of 15 for less then half a year), no team, no support, managment quits too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop bluffing and don't promiss things that are never going to happen

    Working at Jiffy is very organized. We plan our work loads in advance to determine our teams work goals. The team is casual, yet very hard working and determined.

    Pros

    As a creative type, this has to have been the most interesting job I've ever encountered. Due to the size of the company, we get to work on something completely different on a near daily basis which keeps interest levels high and keeps the feeling of "accomplishment" and variety of work at a high. Being able to support the best portfolio in our respective industry and niche market is also something that I can be proud about working with this company.

    Cons

    It takes some getting used to, but there's a reason they're called Jiffy. A week here, is like a month at every other job I've ever been a part of. Even running my own companies in the past, I've never experienced anything as quick paced an environment as this place. On the flipside, the feeling of getting things done here happens as a side effect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expand hard and fast, we need to get this place from the best kept secret in Vancouver to the de facto standard household name for app building!

    Pros

    This job provides me with everything I was looking for in previous jobs: friendly colleagues, great office morale, fulfilling and challenging work, enjoyable projects, not to mention free lunches everyday! Seriously.

    I'm excited to develop my career with Jiffy and grow as an individual and an employee. I can see myself staying here for many years while having the room to grow.

    Cons

    Nothing comes to mind.

    Pros

    The best thing about Jiffy Software is the flexibility of being able to work from where ever I am. Jiffy the sales and marketing tools in a secure cloud. the cloud make it easy for me to telecommute. The actual office environment is easy going and the Chief Software Architect is fun lots of jokes. You will laugh your way into sales.

    Cons

    The worst part of working with Jiffy is the lack of a really good CRM. Sorry guys the sales system as long way to go before it is top notch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increasing fund so you have more sale people on the street and not on the phones
