    I have been working at AlgaeCal full-time

    Pros

    I have thoroughly enjoyed working for AlgaeCal. They consistently care for their customers and employees. The company has a very warm and trustworthy culture. Working alongside people who all enjoy what they do and are happy to be at work makes for an excellent environment with productive meetings. It's everything you could want in a small but rapidly growing company.

    Cons

    There no specific cons to mention. Any issues that arise are always handled right away and when adjustments are needed they are made.

    I have been working at AlgaeCal part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - AlgaeCal really cares about their customers and it shows. There's a huge emphasis on scientific research to back up their products and decisions are made in favour of the customers. You can feel good about working here and know that you're making a difference.
    - Amazing workplace culture. Definitely reflective of the healthy and active West Coast lifestyle. Everybody works together and helps each other. The convenient Yaletown office, delicious Friday lunches, and Buddy, the office dog, are a bonus.
    - Lots of learning opportunities. AlgaeCal invests time and resources in their employees through many training programs, certifications, and conferences. Roles aren't rigid and they encourage you to take the initiative to explore new things. They genuinely care about your personal growth.

    Cons

    - I can't think of any.

    Advice to Management

    - The company's growing very quickly, which is a testament to how great things are working. Keep it up!

    I have been working at AlgaeCal (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've been working at AlgaeCal for a little over 3 years now and have loved every minute of it. I know, it seems too good to be true, but let me tell you why it's not!

    This is a company and brand with products you can actually get behind and believe in. We're making a REAL difference in people's lives. I've had customers tell me they can play with their grandkids again without fear of fracture, participate in races they thought were no longer physically possible for them, and simply just say thank you for creating such a life-changing product.

    From a career aspect, there are endless growth opportunities for employees. I started out as a marketing assistant, then a writer and social media lead, and now I'm in a managerial position.

    Cons

    The team culture, values, and ethics are SO important to AlgaeCal. It doesn't matter how good you are at your job if you don't truly believe in what we do.

    Pros

    AlgaeCal feels like one big family, and every day is different which keeps it exciting and engaging. Team spirit is really encouraged with Friday family style lunches, and birthday celebrations. Everyone working together for the same goal with a great sense of pride and ownership cultivated by positive attitudes. No micro-managing and very supportive learning.

    Cons

    If you prefer to be 'hand-held' through learning you may find it challenging - there's a positive emphasis placed on following your own best judgement and learning from mistakes

    Pros

    I previously worked full-time for AlgaeCal and grew so much from the experience that I continued to work part-time even after switching fields. This company invest so much into their staff and also gives you the freedom to break into other roles you express interest in. One of the best benefit of working in this close knit team and smaller company is the opportunity to try different roles before discovering your niche.

    The company is currently growing rapidly and needs talent in most departments. Although the need for human resource is strong, the company still places huge emphasis on maintaining the current culture of the team.

    Cons

    AlgaeCal is the only manufacturer of a certified organic plant calcium. There is a steep learning curve in the beginning and therefore requires individuals who are actually interested in natural health and helping people.

    Advice to Management

    AlgaeCal's organization structure is relatively flat. This means you are expected to manage yourself without direct superiors micro-managing you! Which is great!
