      Pros

      Individuals and teams are largely given autonomy on how they achieve their objectives - The work is fulfilling and colleagues genuinely care about each other and their work - Values driven company that are actually able to back it up - Making an impact on products that have a global audience with millions of customers and tens of thousands of authors earning on the platforms - Lots of opportunity to grow your career - A lot of change recently with a new CEO, change is hard, but it seems like Envato is growing up

      Cons

      Making decisions and moving forward can be slow and involve many stakeholders, though the new CEO is trying to change this behaviour

      Pros

      Previously a valued-based organisation. Great to be recognised as a B-Corp. Excellent learning programs and leadership training. The transparency of results and focus on open book management was a huge positive.

      Cons

      New CEO and Chief of staff have changed the culture. Not a best place to work now. Lots of examples of bullying at senior levels. As an engineer I would not recommend.

      Pros

      reasonably good wages, focus on the community and doing good, heaps of young and very talented people

      Cons

      Still haven't resolved how to be efficient, being a 'small' company at heart on a 'large' organization, not many big decisions are made based on data, rather on hunches and people get agitated when the data disproves their hunch.
