Typical startup: High on benefits,low on pay
Constantly cash strapped, and the first thing to be cut is always the operations teams salary.

A fun environment for students or work-travel, but not a long term career choice

Great company but no money
Absolutely great company to work for but if you are looking for security, don't work here. They do lay offs every year because they don't have much money. However, it is the best company I've ever worked for. Culture, compensation and the people are amazing.

Not alot of money to be earned
In the Sales team the reps that are smashing it are just hitting quota which means they are earning 55,000 per year which is pretty bad in Vancouver!!

Steer clear.
It’s seriously not worth it. I don’t know what’s worse: employee retention, the pay, or the absolute gong show that is the workflow. Go anywhere else.

Great place to get a foot in the door.
This is a great place to start a career and grow quickly. There are great people and a lot of opportunities to learn and develop with the fast-changing pace. Some teams are really well managed, especially sales. Really high turnover.
Pros
People are great, career development, fast-paced
Cons
long hours, low pay, poor management

fun work environment
very easy going and enjoyable place to work when you get comfortable with your work load. Hardest part of the job was at the beginning and just getting familiar with what needed to be done each day/month. It takes a couple of months to get into it and it's a breeze after that! So I would recommend giving 3 months settling in time. Or longer if you start during tax season

Great place to build experience with no advancement opportunities.
Its a nice place to work because of all the perks, dogs, and fantastic coworkers, however, there is little long-term employment potential. There are very few real opportunities to advance because the best roles are already filled, or there is a shoe-in candidate ready to replace someone moving on.
The pay is sad, but people stay for the great perks like working from home, dog-friendly offices, free dinners, and beers.

Overall, a great place to start your career.
Pros
Great place to network and build necessary employment skills.
Cons
Extremely short burnout cycle.

Great place to work
I don't have any complaints about my time here. Its a startrup so fast changes are to be expected. Can get boring sometimes, but had the flexibility of working from home.

Super engaging place to work and learn
The department I worked in was fantastic—I have nothing but positive things to say. But I know that other departments don't have that experience, and it mostly comes down to compensation. People feel undervalued and overworked...and there's only so far perks (like free snacks) can go.

Still, I recommend it as a great place to learn. There are a ton of smart people who want to help their peers grow at Bench.
Pros
Amazing office, great lifestyle spending fund
Cons
High turnover, low salaries

Great Work Culture....for Millennials
Great place to work
Great options for work/life balance

Fun social options and fundraising

Great management and open-communication policy


Low on job security and advancement...more of a stepping stone for individuals moving into the financial sector...accountants, bookkeepers etc.


I loved my time there as a contracted data-processor, and would have stayed if it fit my lifestyle...and paid more! The work benefits did NOT outweigh the mounting financial pressures of living in one of the most expensive cities in the world.
Pros
Fully stocked lunchroom, breakfast goodies and snacks, catered dinners during tax season, greatest amenities and open and inclusive to all
Cons
Low salaries and high personnel turnover
