    I worked at Circles.Life full-time

    Pros

    Good culture for learning, allows you to make mistakes and learn from them. Company tries to make employees happy the same way they do for customers. Like the team outings and company lunches.

    Cons

    Some old-timers are becoming complacent and too proud to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Create a culture of continuous improvement, and manage those who have become too proud and difficult to work with. There should be a culture reassessment of these people or something.

    I have been working at Circles.Life full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    On a non-technical team, but I've been here a while and hang out fairly often with people across the company, at different levels of the hierarchy and different departments, so I think I have a fairly good idea of what's going on. In summary. Individual bad-egg managers and typical tech / startup scaling pains really drag down the experience. These are real problems, and they cause real pain for some of us. At...

    Cons

    > CONS < 1. Work-life balance. Think the right policies are in place...we have a work from home policy now, and broadly managers are flexible. Ultimately though it boils down to your individual manager, and business needs. Not every manager respects your off-time (nights, weekends) or is understanding to your needs - so, in other words, just like anywhere else. Where it gets really frustrating is when you...

    Advice to Management

    1. Put dedicated people: full time, part time, interns, contract, whatever; on fixing all the small admin pain points like inefficiency, lack of communication, or even culture. Just make that their whole job and give them the time and space to fix it. It's bleeding people dry and it will cost you more in pain, time, and leaving employees than any cost savings by not doing this. 2. Know it's difficult. But we need...

    Pros

    This is an upbeat company with its eye always on the ball. If you yearn for growth, it's a place to find that in spades. There is always something to be done, and with a lot of people willing to help, it's certainly somewhere with opportunities to stretch yourself and thrive.

    Cons

    More structure (or at the very least, a discrete chain of processes), and more communication at key junctures would be useful for the company's sustained growth.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that the same ethos Circles.Life provides to its customers is maintained within the company as it continues to grow!

    I have been working at Circles.Life full-time

    Pros

    Some context - I work with a wide variety of the different departments so my perspective reflects that. Overall, working in Circles.Life has been without any hyperbole (and no, this is not planted by the founders), has been one of the most fulfilling and rewarding decisions I've made. Having worked in a big corporate environment before Circles.Life, I really appreciate the speed and the trust that is given to...

    Cons

    Circles.Life might not be the most competitive in terms of cash compensation, making up for it with more generous stock options. There's a lot of work and if your heart is not in it, proceed with caution. The office toilets could be much better.

    Pros

    -You have freedom in design and implementing solutions -Good , experienced coworkers

    Cons

    -The higher ups set very unrealistic timelines and ask developers to rush stuff . This leads to ad hoc solutions that are bad , without having enough time to design properly/follow good practices -Too much stress as they force you to work after office hours and on weekends . Work life balance will be completely gone . -You can't complain about these because why ? Politics

    Advice to Management

    Don't try to rush everything

    Pros

    Get lots of autonomy to build your projects and initiatives. Company is expanding fast geographically, which helps to give exposure. Leaders are supportive of career moves.

    Cons

    Office location is off centre, and building is a bit old.

    Advice to Management

    Look for a newer office in a good location for the comfort and convenience of your staff.

    I worked at Circles.Life full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Ownership driven company. With the flexibility given to the job scope, you could get more exposure to other tasks. Amazingly fast-growing company. If you would like to be stretched and have exposure to the company that is expanding quickly to other countries. This is it. Founders are highly ambitious. Smart colleagues Founders are actively working to improve work environments

    Cons

    Although they boast themselves to hold monthly team lunch and company event, these are oftentimes skipped due to a hectic work environment. There are not enough cross-team event so you will not know many outside of your team. BD team while in the meeting very often times exaggerate our current capabilities, with regards to event discover app, telco back-end, as well as insurance. The company lacks guidance and...
