Tough but rewarding
Sr. Developer (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC28 July 2016
When I first started at airG everything was in disarray. My instructions and training were very limited, work was sprung on me randomly and it would come in tides and I was given very little warning of what I needed to know. It was like drinking from a fire hose... But I stuck it out...

After 2 years I realized how much I'd managed to learn in such a short period of time. Also how much leeway and flexibility airG had given me to solve problems in my own way. Some of my ideas were adopted (not always) and some of my work is now used to train new people.

This company is not for everybody. They have a very flat structure. My manager, the VP's and CEO are very approachable. They sit among everyone, and dive in and help solve all kinds of problems. Similarly if you come up with a good idea, you get funding, support, and the motivation to push ahead. There's very little ego here. But with that 'flat' structure comes the need to 'figure things out' quickly, to learn fast and solve problems in unique ways.

Some people become overwhelmed. Others excel.

After working in this type of open and flexible environment, I don't think I can work at a 'big' company with rules and protocols. Would feel too stifled.
Pros
Flexibility, Focus on Results, Free breakfast, flat team structure
Cons
Stress - sometimes lots of work, big budgets and big revenues on the line

Salary is horrible

Only a good place to work as a fresh graduate or if there is no other choice.

Management are always uncertain of what is the current situation with the company and mislead team.
Pros
occasional team lunches and beer club
Cons
lack of direction from management and salary
