    I have been working at Project A Ventures full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Extremely positive experience during the interviewing process, onboarding and first days of work. The environment is very welcoming and the colleagues friendly.

    Cons

    I received an offer that was a little bit under my expectations to be honest, but I decided to overlook it for the time being in favour of the great environment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with the transparent company policies and friendly environment

    Pros

    The company has a great structure, they value their people and encourage everyone to learn and share knowledge.

    Cons

    The only downside so far is that there aren't as many lunch options, but there is a fully functioning kitchen where you can make your meals.

    Pros

    Indeed is a great company to work at. It's fast paced, competitive, always changing. The culture is what makes this company and is enjoyable.

    Due to the flexible working hours employees tend to do overtime, or have odd working hours and it might be a little confusing at first.

    I worked at Project A Ventures full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Very talented and intelligent coworkers. If in the right position, one can learn a lot and grow professionally.
    - If you want to do something that helps the company gain exposure, they are very supportive (host events, workshops, presentations).
    - Sometimes people do get very varied projects and this helps gain experience quickly. However, the company has changed directions and now it is not uncommon to be on the same project for more than a year.

    Cons

    - Several departments are paid significantly under market value and offer zero career growth opportunities.
    - For a "startup environment" there are a lot of politics and change is extremely slow.
    - Departments do not collaborate, are often working in silos.
    - Company culture is exclusive and segregated. Some departments are favored significantly more than others.
