I'm currently going through background check before I start my job. I did not include my 3 months temp job because most of my jobs are permanent full time - do you think they'll come back to me for explanation? Also, How do they confirm salary for my past roles on a background check? TY

Employees are some of the smartest, most talented, and most passionate people you'll ever meet. They're also incredibly supportive and collaborative. Competitive salaries and benefits Flexible work location and hours Opportunities for professional development and growth A fun and supportive work environment
Expensify is a flat organization, so it's not the best fit for people who need a lot of structure. We're very adaptable, but moving quickly sometimes requires changing adjusting your focus to new priorities, which can be challenging sometimes

Complete freedom over what you work on and the priority you want to assign it. Unlimited flexibility with scheduling your life, as long as you GSD and are easy to work with you can organize your workday however you like. Extremely supportive team that makes you want to keep learning and growing. Fully remote company that always makes you feel welcome.
You need to go out of your way to get positive/negative feedback sometimes.

You get the flexibility to work anywhere in the world. It is very easy to build a community. As long as you are ready and willing to learn you can succeed
success is attainable as long as you possess a willingness to learn and you are prepared to do so, even to an excessive extent. At the start of your employment, the company trained you to serve as a guide to demo their platform and onboard customers. However, this situation quickly changed this year. During the first year of your employment, you were assigned calls from a queue, which was the primary responsibility of many of the newly hired employees. However, the company decided to eliminate the queue and instead require guides to engage in more sales activities and earn commissions. With the removal of the queue, guides were expected to fulfill multiple job positions, including customer success, sales, and account management, in exchange for a single payment. This does not include other duties that are necessary to complete. The job rapidly transitioned from being a dream job to being an extremely stressful one due to the constant changing. Also with all these changes you are informed your jobs is at risk if you did not meet the changes. The Launch team/mentors were divided on the degree to which they assisted the guides in maintaining their employment. Some mentors appeared to be excessively helpful and appeared to display favoritism, which is a significant issue since some individuals were received all the best accounts to keep up with their quotas, while others provided little or no assistance. Some guides were able to break the rules to acquire accounts and close deals, while others were unable to obtain any accounts through the company's "automated" assignment in new.expensiy.com. The same Launch team members who approved the deals to close them were the ones who allowed some individuals to violate the regulations. The company gives the impression that you do not need to worry about losing your job as long as you work to the best of your ability and put yourself out there, but this is entirely untrue. Some people are being terminated, while some who are not even performing their duties are still employed. If you are one who thrives in constant stress and uncertainty this job is for you if not I would recomend looking somewhere else.1

- strong, transparent, employee-centric company culture - freedom to work on whatever you want as long as it brings value - not boxed in by job titles (focus is on creating value rather than conforming to a specific role) - high pay with twice-yearly compensation review process - good job stability, have never done layoffs in my 11 years here - ceo is the founder and has a strong vision and isn't looking to exit
Lack of direct managers means that it is no one's job to give you praise or feedback. You must be proactive in asking for it and your fulfillment must come from the work itself. This is a tough place to work for people who don't thrive in self-directed environments.1

There is a great company culture and then opportunity to work and travel in unique ways.
Sometimes the highly collaborative environment can be difficult to get things done quickly.

Working from home and choosing your own hours.
The system is broken so much you cannot make money. At one point, I was earning less than $1 an hour. Another time they revamped the whole system and I didn't get paid for months. It was awful.1

- Pay - I made, at least, 2x what anyone else would pay me - Travel the world with coworkers who I want to spend time with - Option to split compensation between salary and equity. - Employee focused - Can work on what you want as long as it provides value. Depending on the teams you're on, there are chores that can take up a bit of the day - Very flat organization
Lot to learn, things are constantly changing/evolving, prioritizing what's valuable can be tricky

Very flexible workplace when I was there
HR was always a mess and didn't know how to handle situations up to code or professionally
- 5.0Feb 9, 2023Anonymous EmployeeFormer EmployeeSan Francisco, CA
Good benefits, awesome people, freedom to work on whatever
Job lacks structure, which could be good or bad depending on how you work.
- 5.0Oct 21, 2022DirectorCurrent Employee, more than 8 years
Lots of opportunities for learning and growing, team of talented and ambitious people, successful and profitable business, very inclusive culture
Very flat organization, so not optimal for people that want a very structured job or a traditional direct manager. We're very nimble but moving fast sometimes requires switching gears and changing your focus to ever changing priorities, which doesn't come easy to everyone
