    I worked at Elastic Path Software full-time

    Pros

    Elastic Path is a great company to work for. They offer a dynamic and fun work environment. Plus, you get to work with some of the most innovative eCommerce companies around the globe. EP has some of the smartest and talented people I know and continues to grow their footprint in Digital eCommerce.

    Cons

    Has a strong product but needs to continue to innovate in order to become a market leader.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to listening to your employees and retaining your employees. The employees are the ones that help make companies great. Delegate and let people that you hire do their job.

    I have been working at Elastic Path Software full-time

    Pros

    Budding culture, exciting prospects, growing partnerships, innovative practices and technology. In the last while Elastic Path has become well on their way once again not only from a business standpoint but also in building the company, excitement and opportunities. Lots of new faces with new ideas.

    Cons

    There new strategy is starting to roll but they are not out of the woods yet. Fast pace environment may not be for everyone. Some hard work to be sure in next few years to come.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course. Listen to those on the ground and mid level management and surely we can succeed. It may take some luck, time and a few more key clients.

    I have been working at Elastic Path Software full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Small enough that you can feel like you can make an impact. Flexibility (I can easily work from home) team oriented culture, smart people to learn from, great benefits including a $1,000 lifestyle spending account and awesome office space in Vancouver.

    Cons

    Plenty of challenges and problems to solve as we grow so its not a place that is fully set up.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be open and transparent

    I worked at Elastic Path Software full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Listen to you
    Will say thank you

    Cons

    Plus point if you are white and a lady. Can get offer letter almost without interview
    No stable structure in teams
    Teams form randomly based on political situation and correctness
    Teams purposefully have complex code for job security
    Purposefully selected Java as it is difficult to code
    Java developers hard to find
    Office although in a prime location looks like a basement garage

    I worked at Elastic Path Software (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked on one of the biggest project at the time.
    Excellent project management and very knowledgable colleagues; very efficient processes in place to follow the best software development practices which eliminated the guessing game for the developers and kept code quality pretty high.

    Cons

    People rotation is above average.
    Can't think of any other cons.

    Advice to Management

    Managers and team leads that I worked with are not there anymore, but they did a wonderful job.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, staff bbq's, picnics and Christmas party

    Cons

    No opportunity to learn or grow or be trusted in my department. Other departments can be better, but new hires seem to get the new jobs not internally promoted
