    Pros

    -Offers competitive compensation and benefits -Stunning offices in the heart of downtown Montreal -Good financial standing

    Cons

    -Poor management -High turnover -No communication -No work-life balance -No one is happy; very demotivating, depressing environment -No regular feedback

    Advice to Management

    Take employee concerns into account; there is a reason there is so much turnover, especially in the HR department. Very little promotion from within, even when it's well deserved. Initiatives are started but never followed through. Yes, you compensate your people well, but at what cost? You continue to lose strong employees and soon, given your reputation within the Montreal job maker, it will be tough to keep replacing them


  2. Excellent environment to learn
