    I have been working at Culture Amp full-time

    Pros

    Culture Amp certainly walks the walk when it comes to people and culture. This doesn't mean they always get it right, but I do believe it is their priority.

    Cons

    The experience as an engineer is generally positive, though different parts of the product group work in different ways, so that can have an affect.

    Technical innovation can often be siloed to particular teams, ie. your experience can be very dependent on what team you're on

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Culture Amp full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Great people with amazing talent and good heart, from the leadership down to the junior - Supportive and open culture. You can openly dissent without worrying about repercussions in most cases. - Depending on your role, great tech stack and mentorship that would give young technologists great opportunity for growth - Great reputation and most likely the next Melburne Unicorn - Great at fostering a sense of belonging and inclusiveness through various inititives

    Cons

    - The company is not great with strategy and execution. The constant internal restructuring has consumed a lot of time and energy. Relative to the amazing talented people there, the product has not evolved as much as it should have - Relative to the point above, I moved to a ML engineer role, but soon realised that the company hired too many ML engineers without much of a strategy and infrastructure, or enough business case to justify all the data scientists and ML engineer here. This is the only reason I left the company - Compensation, excluding the illiquid stock options, is below average, especially given the caliber of people here

    Culture Amp Response

    August 29, 2019Chief People Officer

    At Culture Amp, we take the process of giving and receiving feedback seriously. We are always looking to learn from both the process of giving/receiving feedback as well as from the content of the feedback itself. Given the specific functional focus of your feedback, our Chief Technology Officer has chosen to directly respond (below). FROM . CULTURE AMP'S CTO: Thank you for your kind words. It’s validating to hear we are doing a lot of things right. I appreciate your recognition that we have built a “supportive and open culture” - that’s not easy at scale. Living our value of “learning faster through feedback” we also greatly appreciate your insights into how we can further improve. We agree - restructures can be disruptive. That is why we never undergo structural changes without significant thought to the downstream implications for our employees, culture, customers, and product. We are a rapidly growing company that is breaking new ground in how to create better places to work, which means we need to stay nimble in our approach to solving problems and to experiment with new structures that will help us have greater impact. Regarding data infrastructure, we are very thankful to have attracted so many talented Machine Learning and Data Science employees - who now account for more than 10% of our wider product team! Our investment in hiring in this area is very much a recognition of how important we see Machine Learning and Data Science in achieving our company’s mission. Given our intention to heavily invest in ML / AI, we have recently put a lot of effort into building out a secure environment dedicated to building machine learning models. Our intention is to build a world-class platform that all of our engineers, employees and customers are proud of and can leverage to create impact. Feel free to reach out if you are interested in rejoining us in the future to further our mission of helping companies create better places to work.
