    I have been working at Points International full-time

    Pros

    Coming from larger organizations, stepping into Points was refreshing! Apart from the perks that others have listed here, I think the culture makes this place amazing. I genuinely like the people I work with; they are smart, driven, talented, and want to make Points better. It's amazing coming into work and sitting beside people that want to be here.

    What else is great? The products we work on; the teams send updates on new launches, they try to update us on exciting new offers we provide. The location is central.

    Teams actually work together towards a common goal, and don't look out for their bottom lines.

    Cons

    Points has so many products and offerings, it's hard to wrap your head around everything that we do here. But on the up-side, you're always learning about what we do!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    Hard to think of any. Engineers are smart, office space looks good, open work culture(but that's with any new age company).That's about it.

    Cons

    Political environment, management lacks decision making skills, poor pay structure and benefits, more is said than done, knowledge sharing is not a natural trend.

    I worked at Points International (More than a year)

    Pros

    Relaxed environment, snack and booze cart every week, clean open work space, lots of events throughtout the year

    Cons

    Lots of contracts and not enough full time positions opening up. Training is very informal. Lack of longevity. No opprotunities from within, often hire externally. You will see people one day and the next they are gone.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and open with employees. Promote from within. Set up a better training program.

    Pros

    Friday beer cart, good benefits

    Cons

    Micro management, very stressful environment , super fast paste, high work volume

    Advice to Management

    Their manager are awful micro managing instead need to Hire more people, unclear to company goal. A technical role should be filled by a person with technical knowledge not just by a pretender who claims to have "PMP" only never done technical project before.
