    I have been working at Verafin full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Helps fight human trafficking and elder abuse.
    Has an active employee charity.
    Encourages employees to volunteer locally during 9-5.
    Teamwork culture
    Unlimited vacation
    Flexible work hours/ROWE

    Cons

    Lack of continuity on projects/teams
    Noise (open plan office)
    Technology/operations sprawl
    Technical debt never gets direct attention

    Advice to Management

    Keep people in the loop. Changing a person's job responsibilities and/or team without consulting them or easing them into it makes them feel like pawns even though that's not the intent.

    I have been working at Verafin full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Verafin is an exciting, fast moving company that is solving new problems everyday. Helping Banks and Credit Unions fight financial crimes is both thrilling and rewarding as all employees get a chance to see the difference each and everyone can make. Every employee is directly connected to "why" we come to work every day - don't underestimate the value in having a sense of purpose and seeing the difference you can make.

    Unlimited vacation allows me to plan vacation around my schedule, and a result-only work environment, and remote communication options mean I don't need to be in the office to contribute to my team. I can effectively work from the office, home, starbucks, or another province.

    I have had an opportunity to try many different roles and teams and explore how I can grow professionally.

    It's a really exciting place that challenges me to get better every day.

    Cons

    Things move fast and you need to embrace new opportunities and change - if that is a problem it may not be the place for you.
