    Pros

    What can I say, I honestly never thought I'd be here. I'm genuinely happy in both my role and with my organization. The people here are fantastic, HR really wants to listen and make the environment positive. For the most part, there is cohesion across different teams and you're not just communicating with your division. And the people here are real and genuine.
    The comp package is pretty nice as well, benefits are fully paid by Points (both for yourself and your spouse/children), decent vacation policy, bonus program is pretty generous, every employee gets shares.

    Cons

    I've got none. MAYBE it could be that the bases need to be higher versus the all in comp, but that's not even really a complaint.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change (BUT of course you're a tech company and you have to change) - I love the fact that the company hasn't grown out of his true core values. The exec team is always there and are so open to talking to anyone and getting suggestions. Keep the same values as you grow.

    Pros

    You'll never get this kind of company culture anywhere. HR cares about their people, the work is rewarding. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    I honestly do not think that there are any cons. Highly recommend working here, you will not regret the decision

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do

    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.
