    I worked at Shyp full-time

    Pros

    Worked with some awesome people. At the start it was a tight knit community. Got to see some interesting items come through the warehouse

    Cons

    Extreme lack of communication from HQ to Ops. Higher management fluctuated from good to bad to good to bad again. Complete lack of consistency in whatever information was provided

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Shyp for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Out of all the companies I've worked at, Shyp granted me the most autonomy and greatest professional challenges. The environment is fast-paced and at times crazy: the goal is to disrupt a behemoth of an industry that hasn't seen much innovation in 40+ years. So, if you're looking for somewhere you can slide under the radar, Shyp is not the place for you. Overall, the workplace is open and, after a few stumbles, has made leaps and bounds of progress on being organizationally transparent. It's a unique startup in that when you speak up about wanting to tackle a challenge, it's almost immediately handed over to you. Beyond autonomy, the best part of working at Shyp was impact. Even individual contributors were given projects that would have long-lasting impact on the business and its customers.

    Cons

    The company had a few stumbles from an executive leadership standpoint that it now seems to have recovered from. There was a period where executive leadership asserted strategies on the team that were half-baked, or not relevant because of a bit of an outdated POV (my understanding is that has changed pretty dramatically due to departures, etc.). Shyp is not a place full of sunshine and rainbows. The work is hard and the challenges are big. Some things work, others don't. This resulted in a period of a rough patch of exploration, where many different things were pursued at once. This is the story of most successful startups, but if it's something that scares you, don't work here.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Shyp full-time

    Pros

    While the business has been through several teams of management and shifts in focus, the team in place today with the accompanying focus is the strongest its ever been. The road ahead is far more optimistic than it appeared earlier in the year. The opportunity to take on outsized professional responsibility is outstanding.

    Cons

    Startups are challenging and the industry is competitive. A role at Shyp today will require perseverance, resiliency and a great focus on creating new value in an industry dominated by several large players.

  9. "Logistics innovation"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Shyp full-time

    Pros

    Shyp is innovating in an antiquated space - shipping - and providing an amazing service for small businesses who find it difficult to navigate the complexities of logistics. Working at Shyp means solving complicated problems in a way that no one has before. The opportunity is immense and the work is challenging!

    Cons

    Shyp has been through a few pivots and has had to "re-boot" a few times. But, no one ever said startups were for the faint of heart. So, expect to put in some hard work, maintain a positive attitude and keep your eye on the vision.
