How would you assess Freshbooks as an employer? I am interviewing for a director position in products, as a consulting exit. Any experiences would be great to hear.

My friend works there and I'm beyond jealous at the great culture they have developed. Leadership does a great job of proactively giving mental health breaks, extra long weekends, lots of opportunities to socialize + proactive bonuses and compensation adjustments based on market rate.

Compared the consulting, this company operates like a dream.

Thanks so much, this is very helpful.

I heard the opposite, I’ve heard of highly exclusive cliches that self promote and protect each other, mostly the early employees. They tend to shun new blood especially at the higher levels because they’re salaries are usually much higher than homegrowns. In terms of the perks I’ve heard the same thing as A1, very googleesque and generous.

Thanks, very helpful. You foresee this might be a challenge to fit in if someone comes at a senior level then? Another question, is the company seen as a high growth fintech n do they compensate well?

Anyone here a Client Onboarding Associate for an RIA? We have YE reviews coming up soon. I’m pretty sure I am a shoe in for a promotion, but in case I don’t get it (god-forbid), what is the going salary for this position?

Hello Fishes,

Post my MBA (Fin), I've been working in a bank as a Relationship Manager for over a year. I've realized majority of roles in banking are sales profiles (also less learnings and repetitive work) . I'd consider myself a good analyst rather than a salesperson.
Though I am doing decent in this role, feeling out of place here. Could you please suggest some profiles in banking industry where I would be able to use my financial knowledge, analytical skills and learn something new.

What’s a good answer to the question “Why are you leaving so soon?”

For context I have made 2 exit since last year. I was below average at the start of the pandemic and now quite a bit on the upper range. In each instance I was either approached by the recruiter or the hiring manager. Even now the most recent interview was when the company approached me through LinkedIn but still they asked me this question which is quite confusing. I mean you approached me and I like the work you do.
