    Pros

    Great training in business, great opportunity to develop your own customer relations and test sales techniques. Good IT and business systems.

    Cons

    No room for advancement, Disposable attitude from Senior management towards the field sales group. Top down information flow no comments from field are tolerated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either praise the field for their diligent work or migrate to an internet sales model.

    Pros

    A lot of opportunties to grow and develop if you are in one of the main centres. Your ideas can be implemented and made global within a relatively short time if they are good.

    Cons

    Lack of trust to employees, horrible back stabbing politics. If you are in sales, advancement possibilities are very limited if you aren't in one of the three regional HQs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look a lot more at what people actually do and not at what they tell you they do.

    Pros

    RRSP matching, Flex hours, Gym, subsidized cafeteria (amazing food), Dry Cleaning services, the employees and lower to middle management are some of the kindest most thoughtful people you will ever meet. HR actually cares about the well being of employees and listens objectively, it is a great place to learn what it means to work in a corporate environment. If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere!!

    Cons

    Staff is overworked and extremely underpaid, it is shocking how little a manager can make. If you do well at your job, you are prevented from moving forward, getting a promotion can mean little to no raise, bonuses and raises are inconsistent, there are periodical layoffs in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees better! Establish defined bonus structures, allow your staff who work hard the opportunity to grow or you will lose them as you typically do. You do not realize the cost of rehiring and retraining a new employee rather than keeping an existing one.

    Great cafe, free gym, great people

    Having to clock in and out makes you feel like you are working in a factory

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many layers of management makes decision making very difficult. D'ont be afraid to empower your employees and let them make decisions
