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

    Pros

    A place where you can really be yourself, sharing your interests and passions with others. People are so welcoming, they invite you to lunch, sit with you if you're on your own, but also respect your privacy if you're focusing hard on something. Work is work, and some products are cooler than others, but the people here are next level. You won't want the days to end!

    Cons

    Like in all things startups, I have seen a few things come through at the last minute which require people to change direction quickly. This isn't always easy. But if you have a strong team around you, they always make light of the situation, and rally together to get it done.

    Pros

    Amazingly supportive environment, full of friendly and smart people. The C-level team is refreshingly down to earth and very approachable. It's an exciting time to be at the company and it feels like the sky is the limit. The Sydney office is amazing, with all the perks you'd expect of a Silicon Valley-style tech company.

    Cons

    The company is growing rapidly so inevitably there's some growing pains. The pace of change can sometimes be difficult to keep up with.
