A complete disaster! Stay away!

Marketing (Former Employee) Waterloo, ON (Canada)

ProsSome smart people that have been with the company for some time now. Nice offices and a relatively competitive salary. The company's original senior execs are wonderful to work with.

Cons- A hodge podge of acquired product offerings that are not well integrated
- Little to no process in place to bring new employees up to speed, especially those in satellite offices
- Relatively new executive management team that does not take staff's suggestions under consideration

Since 2012, the company has hired on senior managers to lead marketing who have brought in a "my way or the highway" attitude that hampers creativity significantly. If you are considering a position within marketing, you've been forewarned of the toxic atmosphere.

Advice to Senior ManagementBring in new marketing executives who actually bring the experience of planning and conducting marketing campaigns themselves...not just managers who make demands and take credit for the work of their teams.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
