How is management perceived at WayUp?

Pros

Some really great people, who all are overshadowed by 1 or 2 people, or are let go. Snacks are good and dogs are cute.

Cons

I would not recommend working at WayUp. Although there are some really wonderful people with great ideas, they are often either completely overshadowed by executive leadership, or let go. There is never enough consistency in leadership to be productive or allow the business to grow and thrive. Work life balance is essentially non-existent, and it is frowned upon to leave before 6:30pm on any given day. Employees have been bullied out of the company, causing many talented people to leave. There is little harmony among the teams, as they each blame one another for shortcomings and hardly look at the bigger picture of little consistency in management and strategy, employee burnout, and the lack of feasibility of being able to scale the product at the rate that it should be scaling.

Advice to Management

All of the "fun" organized events and parties are great for short-term happiness, but do nothing for the overall productivity and general anxiety levels of employees. My advice -- hire people that you trust to do their jobs without complete interference of the executive team, and LET them do their jobs. Overall, there will be much more success if employees feel like they are trusted and valued, instead of constantly having to "explain themselves" to executive leadership and fearing for their job security.

There is little harmony among the teams, as they each blame one another for shortcomings and hardly look at the bigger picture of little consistency in management and strategy, employee burnout, and the lack of feasibility of being able to scale the product at the rate that it should be scaling.

What are co-workers like at WayUp?

Pros

* Work from home or office * Flexible hours * People are friendly, open, and smart * Lots of autonomy, engineering team is open to new tech and experimenting

Cons

* A bit chaotic (see first item of company's core values). Processes are not optimal * Lack of transparency. In other words it was difficult to understand where the business was going or if it was doing well * The actual employer is Terminal, a type of recruiting company that does the HR for most of the engineering team (this is not really a con, as the Montreal Terminal team is great, but does add a bit of extra complexity with no benefit to the employee)

People are friendly, open, and smart
