    Pareto was a great place to work before the business took on a US investor

    Pros

    Pareto was a an awesome progressive company with a unique vision and culture until 2012. they were a leader in the space of Shopper Marketing and able to boast a list of leading brands as clients.

    Cons

    The business leaders were required by the new investors to focus on unrealistic growth and do anything to make the nunmbers. The focus on the clients and the employees was eroded and what was once a great business and work environment became an unbearable place to be. The end was devastating for the meployees, clients, and shareholders and the company crumbled into bankruptcy under the leadership of the US Investors and their newly appointed CEO.

    Advice to Management

    To the Canadian Leadership -- it was great while it lasted. Sorry it ended as it did.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Pareto (Manchester, England (UK)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The initial telephone interview was fairly relaxed and colloquial, with no out of the ordinary questions. I found the process receptive to my needs and wants, although this did result in excluding me from quite a large proportion of their jobs.

    The assessment day is tougher, lots of big characters vying for their spot, which is to be expected in sales. I would say don't build the day up, its actually pretty easy, the core thing is to be heard and try to relax.

    Also, its worth throwing your hat in the ring, they do give good feedback and they are very helpful in matching your needs.

    Reasons for Declining

    I was looking for a role with a very young company or a role with broad responsibility, it didn't tick any of those boxes.
