Nice and a great place to work

Work in distributed teams, meaning that the remote work culture is very strong. The company has grown from a startup and is becoming an enterprise. Great place to work

Good but not good enough
Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  LagosSeptember 28, 2019
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.

Awesome work place
Technical Team Coordinator (Current Employee) –  LagosAugust 22, 2019
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.

Though I'm still a bit lost as to why I was let go.

You have to always learn on a fast pace

Feels a whole lot like slavery
Software Developer (Current Employee) –  LagosMarch 25, 2019
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

Andela is a great company to work with, very fast paced environment
Lead Designer (Current Employee) –  LagosMarch 6, 2019
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

Lovely culture and friendly environment.
Software Developer (Current Employee) –  LagosAugust 19, 2018
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.

A very nice environment to work and grow
IT Network Administrator (Current Employee) –  NigeriaAugust 9, 2018
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.

Fun place to work
Software Developer (Current Employee) –  LAGOS, NGJune 17, 2017
A typical day involves getting to work by 9AM, getting on stand up and sprint planning hangout calls, going through project boards and writing code. I learnt that using the best tool for the job is better than using what you are familiar with
Pros
Free breakfast and lunches
