    I have been working at Uberflip full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The reason Uberflip has so many positive reviews is because this company really does care about employees, so we come on Glassdoor (of our own volition!) to give props where they are due. The reason this company is so successful and such a great place to work is because the founders are caring, genuine and smart. They built a company that focuses on creating a positive experience, not just for our clients, but also...

    Cons

    Location can be difficult for commuting from outside Toronto since it's not next to Union Station. But the 16-foot ceilings and gorgeous space make it worthwhile. There's definitely no other office like this in Toronto.

    Advice to Management

    I feel we're focused and on the right track, keep up the awesome!

    I have been working at Uberflip full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This is truly an amazing company with great people. Here are just a few of the points that I can think on top of my head. - Everyone is extremely talented and friendly - Every level of the organization treats each other with respect and value - Very defined culture, goals and aspirations (which they are driving home more often in town halls) - Lots of perks including team outings, events, food, snacks, ping pong...

    Cons

    This would be a perfect score but I couldn't give it at the current moment due to the following issues. - As it is a startup, it is expected that everyday is different and there are tons of work and technologies you use that will go beyond the scope of your initial role. However, over time, I am spending less time doing the work that I signed up to do but instead is supporting other tasks that are sometimes tedious...

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you are doing and striving for success. You have an entire team of dedicated and talented people. However, it would be great to stop at times and evaluate if the work assigned to employees is a good fit for their passion.

      I worked at Uberflip full-time

      Pros

      - The team (i.e individual contributors) are all really great, lots of cool/friendly people - Fun office culture (ping pong, beers) and lots of outings or staff socials, makes it easy to make friends and going to work is really social - Nice office in a cool spot - parkdale! - Free snacks -- chocolate, bagels, cheese, popcorn, etc..

      Cons

      - Really high turn over, people are quitting every week - exec team seems resistent to change - exec team isn't actually transparent about things, even though that's one of the "core values" - diversity initiatives are really just lip service and all come from the employees, not the exec team - tendency to promote people to quickly so no real opportunties for mentorship since your manager probably only has like...

      Advice to Management

      Practice what you preach in terms of communicating with transparency, people talk and you can't stop that from happening, its better to hear it straight from the top rather than get it sugar coated. Get a real HR department to handle things.

      First off, thank you for your contributions. I absolutely agree with you that the people here make Uberflip what it is. I’ll try to be as objective as possible in my response to your cons, so here goes: 1. High turnover: yes, we’ve experienced high turnover. The market is extremely ...

      -very driven and goal oriented leadership and team -beautiful office space and employee focused culture -fast paced, and growing rapidly -many team events, and the company gives back to the community often

      Cons

      -If you cannot keep up with rapid change this may not be for you

      Advice to Management

      Keep hiring where you know we have skill gaps in leadership! So far you have done a great job at this. Keep doing what we are doing, the culture at Uberflip drives the excellence we see every day!

      - TEAM! All the employees I work with are super friendly and very welcoming. From day 1, I have felt like I belong with these people and love their positive attitudes. - Culture - the company culture is focused on employees with so much opportunity for growth. - The office is so sweet - huge with large windows in a good location. - SNACKS - there are so many, with many healthy and not-so-healthy options.

      I have been working at Uberflip full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      I have never worked somewhere where culture is so important. I don't play ping pong or drink beer or any of the other things that people in startups do. It's the small things that mean a lot: the ability to give honest feedback, come up with ways to improve things, being recognized for successes and seeing others be recognized, getting a little birthday treat and balloons on your birthday, getting $1000 a year to learn,...

      Cons

      The obvious growing pains--the operations need to catch up with the growth--but that's where our recent funding comes in. We have people who work here who have incredible ideas. Find them and encourage them and continue to give them opportunities to grow the company and themselves. Everyone wants to help in making this place better.

      Advice to Management

      Be willing to invest in your leaders on each team. Give them tools and resources, get them in a room together and give them an open forum to solve problems among each other. Allow them room to mentor each other. Get more people pulling the business toward our goals and we'll get there faster than we ever hoped.

      Pros

      Amazing company culture - beyond the standard start-up beer fridge and ping-pong tables. People at all levels genuinely like each other and invest in your personal and professional development. They encourage you to take on new projects that interest you and learn new skills outside of the office with things like a learning credit that you can put towards courses. Managers and Execs also listen to your feedback regardless...

      Cons

      Some typical start-up growing pains like over/under hiring in certain departments and releasing products or features that might not always be 100% perfect. The management team is pretty good about limiting these things but they are hard to avoid in start-ups.

      Advice to Management

      Visit more customers. Many aspects of the business will become easier if you have better relationships and alignment with your most important customers. Being far away from most of them makes this even more important.

      Pros

      Free Snacks Ping-Pong Tables Foosball Table Free Beer Laptop

      Cons

      A work from home policy (1 day a week) but it doesn't seem like its encouraged. In a time where we are technologically connected and work-life balance is more important than ever for mental health, relationships, families and just life in general. This is something that should be more encouraged. Lots of turnover that makes you scared for your position. No real team building within departments or company wide.

      Advice to Management

      Work environment & culture needs to be improved especially with the amount of turnover the company has experienced.
