I worked at TradeGecko full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

- Excellent culture that is conducive for collaboration and learning
- Sense of community among coworkers and frequent happenings initiated by employees
- Leadership is trying to be more transparent about key decisions
- Very diverse with people from different backgrounds and nationalities, all willing to learn and share experiences
- Leadership is open to feedback and criticism irrespective of your position in the company
- Recognises talent and contribution and provides further opportunities to grow in such cases

Cons

- lots of changes happening all the time which might not be good for people who are less flexible
- different teams have different subcultures which might become a problem in the future

Advice to Management

- Keep focusing on the culture that you want to build and don't compromise on it especially in challenging times. Align the culture across the teams.

    I have been working at TradeGecko full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Environment: Good open plan office and location
    Benefits: Good medical and annual leave (20 days)
    Peers: Some are friendly
    Pantry: Good snacks

    Cons

    Career Prospects: Zero to hero depending on who you're in favor with, not based on work
    Executive Team: Cannibalizing. 2 exec leaders, the rest no influence very extra
    Company Prospects: Flat like an airport runway

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Definitely sorry if you feel the "Zero to Hero depending on who you're in favor with", definitely not my intention. We really just have some people who go above... More

    Pros

    - Growing startup with an awesome and diverse team of smart people.
    - Remote employees get to visit the HQ in Singapore for their first two weeks for product training, to meet the team, and to learn about company culture.
    - Huge emphasis on building and maintaining a positive culture.
    - Great product that is constantly improving and is actually helping our customers run their businesses.
    - More senior employees always make themselves available to help newer starts, even from the other side of the world. I always feel included and like I can ask as many questions as I need to.
    - Lots of encouragement to JFDI

    Cons

    There will always be hiccups with growing companies, but TradeGecko is doing great at figuring out what works and what doesn't. The main con is the time difference to HQ for those of us working remotely.

    Advice to Management

    Keeping making culture a key part of the company, and keep working to keep lines of communication open from all teams.
