    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Flipp full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Flex hours
    - They care about their people, mental health & physical health
    - Unlimited vacations - I've been able to take almost 5 weeks every year I've been with the company
    - Amazing team, people in the company are really nice and strong teammates
    - You can give your honest opinion
    - To leave this job I would need a very strong option with the same amount of vacation and benefits
    - The end goal of the company is to help people save money which is good and I'm sure most people are aligned with

    Cons

    - Sometimes strategy/direction changes multiple times a year, but you're being paid either way so as long as you don't get too emotionally invested in your work it doesn't matter
    - As a woman, I feel sometimes more growth opportunities are given to men and I am overlooked. I know I'll get a promotion eventually but I just hate that it seems to take longer than a man.
    - Sometimes too much jargon/acronyms - thanks Sandy for always calling this out!

    Advice to Management

    Women are less likely to push their way to a promotion, please set up proper mentoring programs for woman and POC to advance. I am always being told I need to work on more projects to get experience and get a promotion. But they will acknowledge I have the experience, I just need more. *eye roll* Meanwhile a man only 8-9 months ahead of me is TWO positions above me. He worked on one or two projects and he's fine apparently. I think they do a great job as a company overall and would recommend them to friends but this needs work.
