Supportive Team Members
Givex has a fast-paced environment and team members are constantly learning. It is common to hear senior members of the team saying they are still learning new things in a daily basis.

The clients are top priority and deadlines need to be met, and commitments need to be kept. In all departments this is crucial. Communication with clients and follow ups on the status of their requests are part of the day-to-day. Clients are time sensitive but also appreciative of the team effort.


Team members are reachable and always willing to help and mentor newer members. The team is always busy (and the days go fast because of that), but there is always time to help teammates when there are doubts. As mentioned before, this is constant and non-stop learning, one day you help and the other you will be helped. A real team feeling.


If you are looking for a pin-pong table, video games, or working from home this might not be the place for you; but Givex has a nice team atmosphere and career progression to offer if your plan is to build a career and work hard for it (it's common to see fellows moving between departments or being promoted).


I would recommend working at Givex.
Pros
Supportive team members, Fresh Fruit, Career Progression opportunities.
Cons
Fixed work hours (8:30am to 5:30pm with one hour break)

Zero opportunities to learn or grow
They try to pose as a startup, innovative and young company but turns out that it is only a call center in which your primary (and only work) it's taking calls all day long and answering questions about gift card balances, how and where you use it and troubleshoot errors on card machines.
No training nor documentation on anything and management team (if there are any) don't care with you or on what you are doing, as long as you are answering your calls and logging everything in the 15 years old internal platform. Zero opportunities to learn and to grow whatsoever. I had friends there suffering for anxiety, panic attacks, new employees very often did not show up on the second day of work! There's no coffee or any other perk in the office, they offer water (hot and cold) and fruits like banana, banana and bananas. Oh, sometimes oranges and apples too!
Pros
Water

Worse company to work for
Too much micro management, they have no idea what they are doing, besides to treat employees very bad, and they are rude.
Training is very very poor and expectations are very very high.

Salary is below average.

Long hours of work. No overtime. Poor insurance.

With time you get more work to do but salary doesn’t change much.
Pros
Fresh fruits everyday.
Cons
Many

Micro management and weird quirks
9 hour days
Micro management - including advising employees that they are not allowed to smoke on breaks (if you smoke you wont last long)

No advancement unless you work for the day team

No Microwave

Expect to have your lunch thrown out if anyone can smell anything at all


The office is beautiful, located downtown.

There is free fruit available and they observe a scent free zone if you're allergic to smells (not just perfume they reserve the right to fire anyone who smells of anything including medicines like vics vapo rub).
Pros
free fruit, beautiful office, good location

IT and services company with really low corporate culture
Teams and job duties and boundaries are not well defined, training is scarce and compensation is below market.
Nice offices and overall nice co-workers.

Excesive micro-management style and leaders think that power is exercised from impositions and rude attitude towards their subordinates.
Pros
Free fruit
Cons
Poor management, below market compensation.

lack of work life balance, unqualified management
I thought the money offered for the position was worth it, but after seeing a fellow employee have 3 crying break downs in 4 months I realized it wasnt worth it.
Everyone on my team was miserable and is looking for other jobs, and even willing to take a pay cut for a more positive work experience.

Upper management is very disconnected from our department.
Pros
decent pay
Cons
long hours, no recognition
