Pros

The entire technical team at this company is extremely talented: smart, knowledgeable, young, and driven/motivated. If you love the craft of agile software development you will love it here. There is a real "do it right the first time, no shortcuts" mentality. Great place to learn.

Cons

Relatively low pay compared to many other software developer opportunities in Vancouver considering the high expectations. Depending on the team you're in, hours may not be very flexible and overtime is expected.

    I worked at Elastic Path Software full-time

    Pros

    Startup feel... if that's what you are into. Hires a lot of great people. Extremely dynamic workplace. A good place to gain experience, and to try on different positions/roles. Also, a good place to make contacts in the industry; within a couple of years, close to half of the people you first worked with will now be at various different companies around town.

    Cons

    No work-life balance. Lots of travel (for certain positions), with no travel notice (ok, maybe a day or two)... the company owns you. They will call you a 'resource' and will treat you as such. You will always be working for impatient clients that will want the world and want it now and a company that will never push back and set expectations correctly (or worse, have EP as your client in product dev), so a constant cycle of overtime and fire-fighting (running around like chickens with their heads cut off) as deadlines approach. Constant shifting of teams and 'resources', so you'd better like change. Drink beer from their tap, but don't drink the kool-aide, this is at best a mediocre company that's just pretending to be the next best thing since sliced bread... something which they are clearly not.

    Advice to Management

    Learn, grow up and listen to people more qualified/experienced than you. It's not helpful to keep changing company direction every few months (frequently back to what it was before). Own up to your mistakes and don't try to 'spin' everything... respect your employees (by being honest) if you want their respect.
