    I have been working at Metro News full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Perks are great, money is great, really well organized company, good leads, international presence, innovative product. I really did enjoy working there for the most part.

    Cons

    Their leads weren't always great quality and they really expected you to make something out of every single one that came across your desk. The work life balance could have used some help as I would get emails and calls from my manager into the evening and on vacation which was disconcerting. Honestly, I absolutely loved working there and probably would have continued had it not been for direct management where I was. Having an all female office was difficult at times and it was public knowledge that she would use certain employees as scapegoats and bully them relentlessly. I know of 4 employees that have left under the duress of that situation.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps take a look at your management at a local level. Particularly in Edmonton.
