    Pros

    They pay decently. The contract was thorough, and the people I talked to were very polite. They offer decent incentives depending on the contract.

    Cons

    They are based in Ontario, so you only ever get to talk to them over the phone or by email. Their website is hard to navigate. The company is very small so you'll never meet another employee. It takes them four weeks to give you your first cheque. They will also fill your position if you've been approved but are just waiting on a back check. They were not very patient if you do not have daily access to a printer scanner. I'd be sent a contract and heckled the next day asking if I'd scanned it in yet.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new payroll system, make an accessible website seeing as you can't access most links.

    Pros

    It is a pretty free environment, but it is a hectic workplace.

    Cons

    The company has too many politics, and the company went bankrupt after it had acquired so many companies without real sense of direction.

    Advice to Management

    It would be much better if it got its accounting work straight
