    Thanks so much for the review. I'm glad to see there are so many Pros here, always a good sign! Salaries are consistently reviewed here to make sure they are competitive with the current market, and we do try to make your work environment as comfortable and positive as possible. I'm so glad you're happy here! What you mentioned about the workload, I'm sorry to hear that you've experienced that. You should not have to pick up after others, I'm sure you are busy with your own work! Everyone is responsible for their own workload. I'd advise reaching out to your team lead to chat more about this, feedback is a gift and I'm sure they want to hear more about where the team can be improved. Thanks again!

    Hi, thank you for leaving a review! I'm so sorry to hear you had a bad experience while working here. If you feel like your work environment is beginning to turn toxic, speaking to your HR rep immediately is the best course to take. Office politics can for sure be an obstacle; it's something we do our best to remove totally for all employees. People can only thrive in their place of work when they feel their concerns are heard and their needs are supported. Your HR rep can help the team identify the problem and openly communicate to resolve the larger issues that can lead to these politics Discrimination is not tolerated at Shopify, full stop. If you've seen it or experienced it, bringing it to the attention of your HR rep is the surest course for immediate action. I understand you're leaving this review as a former employee, so it can be difficult to get back in touch with your former HR rep. If you would like to leave more specific feedback for our internal team to review, you can do so here via our support pages: (https://bit.ly/3htj6v3). Thank you again for the review, I wish you the best of luck in the future!

    Pros

    Very supportive environment with a very structured internship program. There's lots of opportunities for professional development and intern events are SO much fun.

    Cons

    Compensation is questionable as it's subjective and unclear how it is decided. Definitely not always fair.

    Hey, thanks for taking the time to post a review! Great to hear you are enjoying your journey with us, it's so important that you know how valued you are. Each individual owns their own development and therefore owns how they proactively work toward their individual goals and growth opportunities. We will not “prescribe” what a career path looks like, as that is an individual choice and should reflect the goals, interests and diversity of our people. Awesome to have you with us, here's to many more years!

    Hey! Thanks so much for the review here. It's always great to hear when a current employee is so happy in their role. Being a constant learner is something we value highly here, so I'm glad to hear you have a role that challenges you and helps you grow. Your teammates and your work environment are also so important. You’ll have limited impact if you act alone; the best products come from a mix of ideas, experiences, and perspectives. This is the path to collective impact. You seem to be on the right path with such positive surroundings! Thanks again for the review. Heres to many more happy years!
