What does the company do well?
It's a fun and engaging social feed to reward your coworkers for work related (or personal) tasks! Giving and receiving bonusly points are the best part of my day! It's a great way to reward other coworkers and teammates for doing any little or big task, favor, or just a pat on the back for doing a good job. It's a public feed within your company so you can see what other coworkers are giving and receiving, and you can add points onto them as well. You can also include a gif in your post which is the funniest part, and later exchange your points for cash value at a variety of different places such as Amazon, starbucks, whole foods, target, Nike, etc. I love this system and feel like it should be at every company! It makes you feel accomplished when someone rewards you for doing a good job, and increases productivity when your work goes noticed.
What does the company not do well?
Sometimes there are many bug issues and I can't add on points, comment, or add in a gif to a previous post. It happens every so often, but again, could just be a bug!
What do you wish you had known about the company before using?
The first few months using Bonusly, I wish I knew I had known to give away all my points before the end of the month. Once a new month starts, your points from the previous month go away and you get refreshed with 200 more. I'll always make sure to give out points moving forward because I don't want a reward to go unnoticed. I love showing my appreciation for my coworkers and teammates, and I love when it's reciprocated!
