    We love to say that Myplaneters are Makers, Collaborators and Entrepreneurs. We've spent a lot of time ensuring a strong culture, and I'm glad that it is resonating with you. We do have parking options available, though sometimes with rotating access. Please do let us know if we can ...

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

    Pros

    Myplanet has proven to be a humbling experience so far - exactly what I thought it would be // how the role was communicated to me in the interview process. A few pros that come to mind: - Coming from a larger tech giant, I find that there is so much humanity here (in the work they do, their business process and how they treat their people) - also one of the first Bcorps in Canada. This was a huge in my decision...

    Cons

    - No free lunches but lots of free coffee/cocoa

    Advice to Management

    Really onto something with the incredible research and work they're doing around smarter interfaces, certified and/or endorsed by the big techies. Keep at it!

    Pros

    - The smartest people I’ve ever worked with, always willing to help and share their knowledge. - The leadership team is a group of passionate and intelligent people who really do care about their employees. - There is a competency model the company uses to evaluate employees, 360 reviews, biweekly professional development meetings and other frameworks in place to help you grow in your desired career path. - The...

    Cons

    Nothing major stands out to me but an area of improvement could be enhancing the breakout/collaboration spaces so they better facilitate myplanet's co-working culture.

    I have been working at Myplanet full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Myplanet's greatest strength are the people at the company. The talent level is very high and everyone is friendly and collaborative. The level of emotional intelligence is high. Projects are self-organizing and driven by the team members. The level of engagement and ownership is very high as a result. The biggest thing about Myplanet is that I like the people I work with. I like the work we do. I have autonomy over...

    Cons

    Seniority isn't really a way to get your way here. It's a strong meritocracy. You need to be both strong technically, and an effective and empathetic communicator to be able to influence your team mates. You need to be able to explain why your decisions are correct while being respectful and collaborative. I wouldn't say this is a "drawback" necessarily, but for people coming in who expect to have a more traditional culture,...

    Advice to Management

    Talent retention needs to be a focus. The strength of the company is it's people.

    I worked at Myplanet full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    One of the company's core values, Humanity, is really at the forefront. You absolutely feel like you're treated as a person and not just a "resource" and your needs and desired are taken seriously. If you're in a technical role, working on different projects every 6 months to a year, you get to experiment with and learn a lot of new technologies and techniques. You're given a lot of liberty in the technical choices...

    Cons

    If you like sticking to, obsessing about, and keep improving a single project a number of years, you won't find a long-termed project to do that here (at least in the short run). Even though it's a great liberty for teams to be autonomous and making their own decisions, this reflects negatively on the benefits teams could get from cross-team collaboration and sharing of know-how. There's a bit of a lack of a holistic...

    Pros

    This is a great company. People and culture are great. There are a lot of learning opportunities. Interesting projects and global clients. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    This is a consulting company, so career opportunities are limited because of the nature of the business. Projects are usually stressful and require overtime. Company direction is not always clear.

    Pros

    -My team is super smart -We work for some of top companies in the world. Most customers are in the US and Europe -I can definitely notice my skills growing, and management is very committed to feedback. We get detailed feedback twice per year that is constructive and helpful. -The company is growing quite a bit. This is exiting, as they struggled with their sales model in 2015 but seem to have learned from the mistakes....

    Cons

    -Company can be very Toronto centric as that’s where most people are based. This is improving. - I’m worried that the new capabilities we are building might come out of my own time. -Customer-facing roles often have a travel component. Most people have to spend a few days travelling each quarter, but Engagement Lead and Client Service roles can be more. Most travel is to San Francisco and London UK. -Work hours can...
