    Great culture and great team to be apart of

    Pros

    Have only been here for four weeks but the team has been so warm and welcoming. I read below there was some questioning comments around the culture and it being a boys club but I have not seen that here. Im Terms of my experience, it has a great work life balance where I’m out the door by 4. People are from all walks of life who are respectful, hard working and we have times where you can have a laugh. I have worked in big corporate all my life and moving here was a big leap but I don’t regret it. Leadership are not micromanagers who are approachable and friendly. They have trust in me to get the job done which is really empowering. I am getting to work on exciting projects and I’m not being held down by over governance which is what I have been used to my whole life which is a nice change. They have chefs and barista on site which is a big plus (my wife is very jealous) but don’t think there is some ulterior motive here with being in office 5 days a week as you can work from home as you see fit. The building is clean and have some cool things like a driving simulator, basketball, table tennis, gym (I don’t have excuses now to attend one) and massage therapist on certain days.

    Cons

    I don’t personally have anything bad to say, there is only pros and haven’t seen or experienced anything which is negative in my view.

    Pros

    The company knows where it is heading. Is growing so we are putting on people not laying off like Swyftx where 2 of my friends just got redundant. Here we get to take ownership of my work and people respond. Also the culture is bang on like Mint coffee bar and food.

    Cons

    The air conditioning is good inside but some days it is hot for the warehouse staff. They are troupers

    Good learning opportunity

    Pros

    - Good mentoring (gave me skills that I still use now at my current job when mentoring other developers) - Excellent tech stack - .NET/Typescript/React which is used widely in the industry - Well established development structure since the last year or so - have proper lead developers and an engineering manager in place - Given it's an established startup moving onto medium sized business now, there are plenty of new projects to work on, so you will always be moving onto different projects to challenge yourself in whatever project you do - Given the industry is sports tech, job security is quite good, given the current climate of redundancies - Food was great and plentiful, I can't seem to get make my own hollandaise sauce for the life of me as well as the VALD chefs do. You can claim this as a food allowance during EOFY tax time and it also saves you time from making your own food!

    Cons

    - Parking is an absolute pain unless you come early in the morning. However, if you are a developer, you can work remote quite comfortably nowadays so it's not a big problem if you live far away - Might be difficult to get promoted upwards in management now as they already have an established hierarchy of development leadership - Technical debt but I do believe this is now being addressed with the new structure. It has improved in the last year so this is gradually being addressed
