Good perks, bad management
Getting cooked breakfast and lunch is great but the leadership within Vendasta is very poor and disjointed. Many top executives have bailed over the last 6 months and they have been laying off sales people because they have no leads. They cannot keep clients happy and they end up leaving within a few months.

They have a good product but they don't know how to scale the company

Great at first but the cracks start to show quickly
Seems to be kind of a theme with people who don't like this place, but it seems so awesome at first and once you get in it and realize that management for the most part is terrible, see the high rate of turnover, the toxic levels of forcing culture on you, getting paid too little and having awful benefits, and essentially have $66 a month stolen from you to pay for food that you never eat, it goes from good to garbage real quick. I wouldnt recommend working here to my worst enemy. Oh also the CEO's head is so big I'm surprised he can even fit it in the building. Good golly does that guy ever love kissing his own butt

Challenging work, great people
Vendasta is a unique place. It's growing really quickly, and it's full of people that are really passionate about what they do. The perks are great, there are opportunities to learn every day, and the future seems bright.

Great place to work and learn
Strong tech stack and modern software development patterns. I worked for a cross-product web application in an agile environment. The company follows the latest software development pattern and as a developer, you don't really need to worry anything other than technology. Overall, a good place for developers to work and learn together.

Growing...and fast
I come from a corporate world, and this place is so very, very different from what I was used to. It IS fast-paced, but it makes it exciting and challenging. Be prepared for change, but listen ... it's the kind of change you'd experience at a company where the charts are heading up and to the right, which is very refreshing. Fun teams, happy space.
Pros
Free food, fun events, flexible schedule, exciting work, and flex days.
Cons
Benefits could be better

Exciting and Innovative Company you can grow in!
Vendasta is an agile software company but has many other divisions other than development. I have seen multiple people, including myself grow and change roles. They value all of their employees opinions and work hard to over communicate to everyone at their weekly All Hands Meeting.
Anyone in the marketing, sales, customer service or development space should check them out. Aside from the free breakfast and lunch, on site massage, car detailing and lots of perks it is a place you can learn, challenge yourself and add value.
Pros
Development Opportunities, Free Breakfast and Lunch
Cons
Very fast paced

Wouldn't wish my worst enemies working here
The company offloads too much work on too few people in their Marketing Services department. Vendasta often goes on firing sprees, with no reason given to those fired and work loads simply added to existing employees. Work/Life balance is slim to none, the company expects participation in lunch-hour seminars (called Lunch and Learn) which you are not compensated for. They claim these seminars are optional but you are disciplined if you do not attend.

The company also has a history of homophobia, transphobia and misogyny that it can't seem to shake.


Don't work here.

Big opportunities, bright future
Even though Vendasta's been around for 10 years, it's still at the start of its journey. There's a huge opportunity for it to be one of most successful companies in Canada. Exciting to contribute to such incredible growth.
Pros
Great people, lots of fun. Given latitude to make positive changes. Free food & decent social events.
Cons
Frequently org & strategy changes (not ideal for people who need rigid structure)

The environment provided endless food as perks
They are doing many things well, but there is a need for a great deal of improvement. They boast flexible hours but do not seem to appreciate hard working employees.
Pros
Free Lunches
Cons
Poor Communication, Inaccurate training

Poorly managed, to say the least
Too many products in their Marketplace, no one is an expert on everything and customers get overwhelmed and confused. Everyone is overworked and stressed, but they continue to want to grow the company at an unsustainable rate. Very little job security, as there is a high turn-over rate and many positions have been getting cut recently. HR Department has ignored complaints against other coworkers. Widely different salaries for the same position. False advertising for their new positions, leading to unhappy new hires. Proper training is non-existent.

Young vibrant workplace but need to pay employees ,roe
Great culture but does not provide the best financial security. Offers many opportunities for employees to mingle, have fun and participate in extra curricular activities. However, the pay structure does not represent the amount of work output.
