@clifford47, I love your question.
can anyone explain to me what is going on at Andela,how come an individual is suppose to pay the sum of 7,500 and 15,000 dollars respectively when he/she cancel a bonded contract with Andela before 2 years?
Why is Andela paying a developer in Naira,when Andela is being paid in Dollars for a work the programmer did for a foreign company?,i feel it is an unfair policy.
Does Andela's contract policy follow the guidelines of Nigerian Labour law?
(but i expect the so called top 1% in Andela to actually discuss this issue if they claim to be smart as we are being told),
CNN claimed Andela is difficult to enter than Harvard,i just smell PR Stunt everywhere even on medium posts,i know all these PR strategy,i am not new to them,you can basically trick people to do what they dont want to do e.g making them write reviews to positively suit your company,they indirectly become your online advocate,i know this trick,i myself,i am PR strategist.)
Fact is many Nigerians cant confront their employers even though they are told to eat grass,i myself included,i am trying to change that mentality:)
i feel like since Nigeria is endowed with many unemployed talented youth who are jobless:),Andela have taken the chance to exploit them by taking their desperation into check,they understood that a desperate man can sign anything given to him as long as you can pay him peanut to provide for himself and family.what i think Andela is paying developers compared to the work they are doing is what i call cheap labour,but they call it industry rate:)
I believe Andela initially started with a good purpose but when investors came on board,every good purpose went to the ground,infact Andela is almost completely own by investors(80.35%) what good do you expect from a company that is not profitable at the moment.
