Employee Review

  1. 1.0
    Former Employee, more than 1 year

    New management worse than the old

    Pros

    Ulrich was a great leader before the merger changed his role.

    Cons

    Extremely low compensation. Little to no RSUs. No bonus. No refresher. Terrible work life balance. Executive team has no idea what they are doing. No opportunities for advancement. No perks. Totally dysfunctional engineering process. Mandatory 12 hour days and weekends. Lack of product vision. Lack of resources. Absurd requests with impossible deadlines. Toxic culture. Employees crushed by workload. It is not uncommon to hear people crying in meeting rooms. One employee was so overworked that he had a stroke. Middle managers will manipulate and lie to you in tactical ways while attempting to micro manage your day to day. Go anywhere else but here.

    Pros

    The LV/LDV is very cool looking.

    Cons

    C Suite fails (Canoo speak earn a 0) as leaders. It’s group that will use up the best in people and then leave instructions for someone else to terminate them. Zero transparency, employees learn info from social media which the executives seem to applaud. Expect to be micromanaged and your coming and going from the office recorded. Almost everyone has been required to return to the office even if you were hired to work remotely. Have COVID? Big project? Come to work anyway. The money is a lure, if you have other opportunities DO NOT pass them up to work at Canoo. It could be a foolish decision.
