A typical working day is pretty fair. A wave of tasks will flood your way, but this is tempered by the collaborative atmosphere in the organisation...

Nice Place to work, but has management and communication issues. Things change quickly without any notice and employees now have little or no say at all unlike before.

Andela has by far the best work culture I have experienced. They uphold strong values which they try to guard with all sincerity and purpose. However, The management needs to quit tinkering with the model and figure it out before they run out of cash.

A great place to learn and build capacity but it seems like the management only cares about making money and not about the employees.
There's no job security

Andela used to be a great place to be. Now, that has changed from "Great place!" to "we will manage it". It is still filled with intelligent people, but the company culture, accountability of management and desire to be a unique company in the world is all but gone.

I have been working in Andela for about 9 months and I have not had an opportunity to feel sad about it. It's nothing like a Nigerian company. I also love the fact that I can work remotely.

Andela is a fun place to work at. They take work-life balance very seriously. Breakfast and lunch is provided, most enjoyable part of the job are the team bonding activities, not only does it take you out of your comfort zone, it also allows you build lifelong friendships.

Exciting place to work, where you a constantly pushed to improve yourself, while having fun too.
There is a really good structure meant solely to improve their developers. They take their employers seriously too

Though I'm still a bit lost as to why I was let go.
Pros
Free Breakfast and lunch
Cons
You have to always learn on a fast pace

In order to stop developers from leaving, rather than giving better compensation or better career prospects or even better environment, Andela decided it's better to ensure that developers sign a 2 year bond with the company and leaving before this time you would need to pay about $15,000. During this 2 years, you would not even earn close to that amount despite Andela collecting more than $4500 from companies monthly.

It all feels like slavery as the developers (who are really the only source of income for the company) are paid the least in the industry (and even at Andela). These guys have taken advantage of the fact that the unemployment rate in African countries is really high. I find it troubling that companies agree to partner with a company that pays their developers less than $4 an hour

The work culture at Andela is impeccable with flexible work options and an opportunity to collaborate with the brightest minds on the planet.

The culture is an open work culture with excellence, integrity, passion, and collaboration being at the forefront of the company.


The hardest part about working with Andela is the rate at which things change, it's a startup so this is expected

Management is approachable and kind, there are nap rooms and snack bars in the office. Huge opportunity to self learn with free access to several online learning platforms such as pluralsite, treehouse udemy etc.

Opportunity to gain development experience by extending software development teams within Andela and with partners around the globe.


Challenging because you are faced with real life computing problems daily.

Andela is a great place to work, there are lot of opportunities to grow and a lovely environment.
With staff strength above 500, it is often difficult to attend to multiple network issues but it was easier with the creation of knowledge base articles.
