I worked at Tucows full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Some terrific team members; very knowledgeable not just about technology. Photography, cycling, food, health, exercise. A very sharing community. Still in touch with many of my past colleagues. Summer and year end parties are a blast. Good health benefits.

Cons

Management's direction is often misguided. Even HR has frightful turnover.
Management plays hurtful head games: to avoid paying severance to employees they've decided to dismiss, they start giving aggressively negative feedback in an effort to get them to resign. No recognition of employee effort.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop starving divisions of resources. Allow divisions to provide input into their own direction. Show employees some respect.

    I have been working at Tucows full-time

    Pros

    Offers amazing customer service to customers. Strong support for members of the customer service team.

    Cons

    Not on a subway line and parking can be expensive. Ride a bike!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management has an open door policy. If I had something to say, I'll say it to them. :)

    I worked at Tucows full-time

    Pros

    Great employees to work with. Access to public transportation. Location is convient to highway access, though traffic may be congested at times. Pay is relatively good, but high work expectations reflect the level of pay.

    Cons

    No job security. No recognition of employee effort. Frustrating work environment, Poor communication. Low employee morale. Difficult to work with management. This company had lots of potential but change is slow and upper management is slow to respond.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better staff/management communication is essential to morale.
