Pros

great technology with enormous market potential. Really exciting opportunity for people who get jazzed about building a high value company, and aren't afraid to jump in and use their initiative to get things done.

Cons

The company is growing fast which means sometimes their are rapidly shifting priorities and you need to insert yourself into conversations to make sure you're always current and focused on the most important projects.

Advice to Management

Given that employees are spread across varying time zones and regions it would be helpful to implement a more user-friendly social collaboration platform for easier communications and sharing of ideas.

    I have been working at Guavus full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Employee friendly HR policies, wfh, flexi hours, technology

    Cons

    Some senior level engg. managers/program managers are dumb and only can play politics. Architecture team in India only follows what montreal team decides, even if it is downgrading to existing/previous components.

    Advice to Management

    Need to do 360 degree manager reviews.

    I worked at Guavus full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    (This review is based on my experience in Montreal office)
    1. Great people. A group of professional, friendly and cool employees is working in Montreal office.
    2. Nice culture. This is an office of a silicon valley based company in Montreal, which means silicon valley perks (eg. free snacks, flexible hours) with Montreal culture (eg. organic snacks, 5a7s)
    3. Wonderful location. Close to metro, in heart of downtown, and on the 16th floor of a historical building with a 365-degree view over Montreal. What else do you want?
    4. A place to improve. As a developer, you have the opportunity to learn a lot of stuff here. Either you are senior or junior, there is a lot to learn in Guavus.

    Cons

    Guavus is in the acquisition process, which may change its culture. However, as I know all the directors and managers are trying to keep Guavus culture and way of working as it is

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture. Improve the communication. Everything is good IMHO.
