    • Compensation and Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Product Designer 

    I have been working at Shopify full-time

    Pros

    • Extremely strong design culture • High compensation • Highly specialized creative roles (content strategy, illustration, UX, visual, motion, front-end UX etc) • Highly interconnected work

    Cons

    If you want to wear multiple hats and work multiple roles (eg. design and code, or illustration and UX) it's unlikely to be able to do that at such a large company. That's more of a scrappy, start-up work style.
