    Best work atmosphere I've ever experienced

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsThe company culture and work atmosphere is unreal. Everyone is friendly and there is such a close knit culture about the company. It's like being a part of a rapidly expanding family.

    ConsMy office faces the North side of the building and it gets chilly in the winter. The elevators are also a bit slow.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the pizza parties and other company events coming, they're amazing.
