Culture of asking questions and seeking help when you need it - no one makes you feel bad for not knowing something or needing help. Open to people moving into new positions/skill sets to allow for growth.
Has some growing pains for a smaller company (30ish people to start) becoming a medium size company of 100+. Growth and career path requires some motivation of your own as they don't currently have clear promotion paths.

good work life balance much to learn from colleagues
you don't really get to choose your client so it is a cat in box - can be good/bad experience

Excellent work-life balance as a remote working consultancy. Everyone employed there is super knowledgeable and helpful. Extremely bright people. I had no issue with pay or benefits, everything was on par with both my level of experience and where I am geographically located. Decent list of clients with a mixture of big names, and smaller to mid size start ups.
CEO who thinks he can do 18 jobs at once, micro managing every detail of every project. The power dynamics here are not great and and it was often a point of frustration for everyone I spoke too. Justin speaks about self managing employees, but will not leave them alone long enough to complete tasks inside their own team groups. His standards for what is quality are often indecipherable and will rely on crude drawings to explain a point. He often involves himself deeply in matters in which he is far from being a subject matter expert and will not defer to those experts instead favoring his own brand of wisdom based on past success. I took a risk taking the job here from a very safe contract role where I enjoyed my work, but felt underpaid and was without benefits. The writing should have been on the wall for me as soon as the existing product director left as soon as I signed on, a new hire was let go, and another long term employee moved on to a position at a former client.5Bitovi Response2y
Thank you for sharing open feedback about your time at Bitovi. I’m very sorry you found it difficult to work with me and that your experience at Bitovi wasn't what you'd expected it to be. We value feedback, which is why we regularly ask our team and our clients for feedback and try to use it to improve Bitovi as often as possible. While we don't believe anyone can do 18 jobs at once, we do value our team's work-life balance, as well as hiring the right individual for a role. Sometimes this means filling gaps as needed with myself or other team members until we can hire the right person. In working through the best solution for the client or project, we encourage questions and discussing what works or doesn’t work as part of the day-to-day at Bitovi. This is not because I or someone else knows better, but because this is how we come to know more as a team. As a best practice, we ask our team to proactively get feedback early and often. A quick "here's what I'm thinking" or drawing shared on Slack can often save us all a great deal of time or serve as a foundation for discussion. We will take your feedback and continue to use it to improve as a company. We wish you the best. Justin

Best company ive worked at in a while. great values, work life balance and everyone is super friendly
i cant think of anything
If you're looking to further your JS/TS expertise, suffice to say there's probably nowhere on earth that's better to do it. The teams here are world class and everyone is always learning. High level leadership is stellar (every director of every organization is the most competent person I've ever met in their field). Health insurance kicks butt.
Bitovi is still very much a consultancy, and I wasn't quite prepared for that. At times, you might get thrown around as another number on a spreadsheet, another body in a room, etc just to make ends meet. Work won't always be what you want and is usually messy. Tons of your time will be spent dealing with politics and much less than you want writing code. Exec leadership can sometimes show signs of white man syndrome, and make decisions that aren't best for entire groups. Salary is on the low end of competitive.2

They're a 100% remote shop, but they work to make it feel like family. You get a new hire swag box, and they have regular company meetings so that everyone is up to date. Plus they frown on people working more than 40 hours a week. They really push the work-life balance.
I don't have any cons

Continuous improvement on better ways to improve their processes and delivery. Opportunity to learn and grow.
Inexperienced and mature Leadership. Narcissistic and Sociopathic personality types. They bully people on to resignation due to lack of consulting gigs.
