Great place to work, if you can stomach the politics

Senior Development Director (Former Employee)
Vancouver, BC (Canada)

ProsFun products and output.
Great salary.
Working with talented people.
Bragging rights.

ConsPolitics.
Left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing.
Occasional stress and overwork.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhen you say do something, back it up, and cut the things you don't believe in. This is a mantra we often hear, but it never feels like that on the ground. Too many things are started with good intentions, then the senior management dance around the issues hoping they don't get tarnished with any bad feeling if feathers are ruffled.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
