    Pros

    Good 9-5 job, friendly culture and people, good benefits, stable office job. Great employer brand and recognition. Supportive management and HR department with good training and orientation programs.

    Cons

    The job was not challenging enough for my preferences. My tasks as a summer intern were mainly database organization, data analysis, and online moderation. Decisions had to be passed through many levels of management; hence they took a while to make.

    Advice to Management

    Give more challenging work to interns. Give less preference to internal referrals and family connections if you want interns that are better suited to various positions with a greater desire to excel at their job.

    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.
