    I have been working at Onfido full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work/life balance, Sanctus mental health coaching, great colleagues, great opportunities to learn, good office

    Cons

    Things change fast, and some people are on a different cadence to others, but there's a genuine focus on culture and people are generally very understanding. There's definitely a place for circumspect and patient thinkers as well as the breakers and changers

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to people and keep being flexible and willing to change things up
