It's a good company to work at.
Not really too many cons.

I believe in the mission of the company, align with the values, and trust senior leadership to always make the best decisions for the longevity and success of Shopify - even if that doesnt always please everyone.
Compensation was below what similar jobs in the industry were paying

Truly some amazing people; great perks like expensing house cleaning, discounts with Autonomous; generally flexible scheduling; some managers are encouraging and provide helpful feedback
Once there was a mass exodus of tenured Shopifolk, things went downhill quickly. Some senior management seem to be lackeys for a mercurial C-suite, constant restructuring, little stability in teams. During my brief tenure there were at least 3-4 reorgs, seemingly done on a whim. Very little authentic communication between leadership and their teams - in the dark about why changes happen and when they might be coming down the pike - and teams and individuals suffer for it. The company overhired in big ways and compensated with multiple mass layoffs and firing people just before they vested. Multiple people were fired or left after taking medical leave just on my individual team (never a good sign for team health). Expectations for roles were unclear and individuals were easily thrown under the bus by toxic upper management to look good for their bosses. The overall environment was chaotic and lacked stability. Would not recommend unless you're looking for constant change and anxiety about whether you'll still have a job tomorrow.12
