    One of the tech focused / product companies in Melbourne

    2 Sep 2020 - Senior Engineer in Melbourne
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    * Tech focused initiatives among customer focused ones. Opens the door for tech innovation. * People focused culture - this may sometimes come across as "all talk" and fake but in reality it is much better than many other organisations - I am not surprised by a couple bad reviews about "people first" being fake. * I can see that the CEO is trying hard to connect with people and be culture-first - one of the influential leaders in Melbourne.

    Cons

    * Very low pay compared to market standards and does not match with the increasing expectations and outcome expected out of senior to lead roles. * Not very competent top engineering management: Top heavy (too many directors for the company size) and recently expanding to non-engineering management. Obviously some people may not find this an issue (particularly if you are a non-technical person) - but as an engineer myself, I find this troubling - that being said, I also found some of the technical senior management not competent enough in managing some of the difficult situations which explains why they are heading in this direction.

    A special place

    Pros

    What has kept me at this company is hands down the people. The CEO is a true visionary and a good soul. There are things I've learned from this company (beyond my technical discipline) about the complexities of making a better world of work that I will be able to carry well into my career as a manager, mentor and employee. Looking at the science through our well credentialed and talented People Science team has been eye opening. People also have fun here. There are meaningful employee excursions and interesting speakers and events which round out the work experience. Also the software is spot on and an incredibly powerful tool for those wishing to make change in their organizations and get to the pulse of what is going on. The data does not lie! This is undoubtably a very special place. Building a company is by no means easy and then taking it to scale is even harder.

    Cons

    The usual growing pains in a hyper growth company are expected. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it.

    Incredible people and incredible product

    4 May 2021 - Sales Associate 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The people I work with are some of the most genuine and helpful coworkers I've ever experienced. My teammates really do a lot to set each other up for success and achieve their goals. Collaboration is strong here, without the hyper-competitive issues that can seep into some sales cultures. The product is incredible and it's motivating to hear so many people speak to the impact Culture Amp has on their work and their business. Strong engineering and product team breeds confidence. Getting to speak with Culture First companies everyday is also a great benefit.

    Cons

    The organization has outgrown its start-up phase in terms of size and structure, so might not be the best place for people looking for that kind of company. More bureaucratic and opaque decision making has lead to some people leaving the org or feeling under-valued.
