A good starting place to work but not a place you want to become a lifer

I worked at Astral Media

Pros

The hours are flexible and the benefits are good although not amazing. Very decent vacation time is given to you.

Cons

You are not recognized properly for the work you do. There are plenty of employees who work hard and have been at the company for years. Instead of promoting these employees, the company will instead hire from outside the company who sometimes have even less qualification. Raises and promotions are very hard to come by!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please promote the people who deserve it

    Pros

    Compensation is great and work-life balance is excellent. Management gives you autonomy which is suitable for a self-reliant and resourceful person. Not a lot of red tape.

    Cons

    If you are not a self-reliant and resourceful person, you may find the lack of structure and support difficult to navigate. Nobody will hold your hand to teach you the ropes - you need to do it on your own. Sometimes morale can be an issue if you get sucked in by gossip.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Especially for new hires, more structure and support may be required in the early months. More inter-departmental collaboration would be helpful.
