I worked at The Standard full-time (more than a year)

Pros

The Standard truly shows support for corporate values throughout the organization. It's not just talking the talk, every department walks the walk.

Cons

Lots of balls in the air in terms of process and standards, thus a recent reorganization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on the talent you currently have in staff, you might be surprised by the hidden gems you can discover.
