    Pros

    The best reasons to work here is easily the independence in working. The company is more interested in growth rather than setting rules.

    Cons

    monotonousness is one of the issue.

    Pros

    The company culture is great and at an all time high. Employees are passionate and want to do great work. Lots of career opportunity to move up or laterally, but you have to want it and work for it (it's not handed to you). Great office location in midtown Toronto. Very supportive for employees at different stages of career - I recently came back after maternity leave and they accommodated me with a flexible work schedule. Overall a truly great employer.

    Cons

    Can be some politics between work teams that are barricades to getting work done - no more so than any other large organization.

    Advice to Management

    Keep involving employees in your vision, the culture has never been better! Corporate support of Jumpstart is truly inspiring as an employee.

    Pros

    Constant change and progress keeps you on your toes and engaged.
    "We're all in it together" attitude
    Focus on promoting from within versus hiring external
    Great focus on career building and feedback for individual growth

    Cons

    Politics plays a big role in cross-functional roles
    Lots of red tape which hinders progress

    Advice to Management

    Needs to be clearer accountability - lots of finger pointing instead of talking about a solution to the issue.
