    Worst employer in my entire career

    Former Employee - IT Related in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Former Employee - IT Related in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    I worked at Decisioning Solutions full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing significant. They tried to add an "extensive benefits package" to make it sound good, and professional, what a joke.

    Cons

    The real problem there was top management. The place was run by a control freak and a very greedy man, he has a lot of problems. The pay was poor and just fired anyone without hesitation for the slightest reasons. Turnover was high, morale extremely low, the systems and software was a complete mess of problems and poor management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider seeing a professional counselor, mental health issues affect everyone around you.

    I worked at Decisioning Solutions full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Had some very nice co-workers. Very convenient location for public transit. Some attempts to improve things seemed to be happening, maybe. Great Halloween celebration.

    Cons

    Lots of criticism from upper management.
    Lots of bizarre HR policies, and very rigid systems.
    Least flexible place I've ever worked.
    Terrible morale.
    No apparent care for the big picture.
    Perpetually trying to do damage control, either from failing technology, angering customers or failing to address technical debt until it was way too late.
    Some bad developers who are used to just getting things done, and will screw up any of your attempts to set things up properly.
    No interest in employee career development.
    No apparent interest in making things better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Do reviews, accept criticism, and trust me when I say the path to a happier workplace isn't more rules or a tighter grip.

    I worked at Decisioning Solutions full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The people (not management) are very friendly.

    Cons

    If you like being shouted at, or being told you can't have coffee at 9am, or love taking shortcuts to get the product out the door, then this is the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check people's qualifications before hiring, and do some management courses.

    Former Employee - Business Analyst in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    I worked at Decisioning Solutions full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Location is great. Co-workers (not management) are great. Will hire if you don't have Canadian experience.

    Cons

    Management is terrible, you will be yell at, sworn or hear your colleagues be abuse. Regardless of job title are demand to work outside of your job role on demeaning work that have nothing to do with your skill. Every minute is tracked even if you take too long in bathroom. Minimal vacation time. Demeaning, depressing place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Style of management is out of date and has no place. Remember staff can go elsewhere, there are plenty of software companies in Toronto all treating employees much better and offering perks. Respect your staff, be professional, be ethical, treat everyone fairly no matter gender, race or age.

    I have been working at Decisioning Solutions full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The only main thing I liked about working with this company were my co-workers, who were a bunch of smart and friendly people.

    Cons

    Management was ridiculous. Expected over-time work with no additional pay. No room for growth. High turn-over for a software development company. Average employee time with company is less than a year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure your employees are happy. Provide employees with fair salary. Stop threatening employees with legal actions. Share the company success with your employees. Treat employees with respect and dignity.

    I have been working at Decisioning Solutions

    Pros

    Good location. Good way to get experience if you're an immigrant and cannot find a job. They will hire you.

    Cons

    No bonuses. No overtime pay. Weak middle management. Lack of resources. High turnover (3 people quit every month). Lack of professionalism at the workplace from middle managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be professional in communication. Do not tolerate rudeness from team leads towards others. Provide some form of bonuses or better overtime pay or else don't expect it from employees.
