    Pros

    They have some great people working within this company!

    Cons

    The only reason you're seeing so many positive comments about this company is because the employees were mandated to write them! If they were all being truthful these ratings would be very different. This company is a small, family run business and is conducted in that fashion. Poor leadership along with empty promises.

    Pros

    I enjoy working for Executrade. Because:
    •Executrade treats me with respect and generosity.
    •The culture is one of the best I have had the opportunity to be a part of.
    •Executrade is performance driven and I am held accountable for my actions and my results. As a result of my hard work my manager frequently acknowledges my contributions.

    Cons

    Nothing significant comes to mind.

    Advice to Management

    I love how you constantly promote when you can from within. I hope you can continue to provide these opportunities to employees.

    Pros

    I am proud to be an Executrade employee. My experience has been rewarding, challenging and fair. Has everything at Executrade been perfect? Of course not, no career is, however, the world of Recruitment can be an extra difficult industry and it is not for the light hearted or for those who are not wired to win! The company truly cares about their employees and they have demonstrated this several times throughout the years. We have had growing pains as we expanded to Calgary and Vancouver, but the future looks so bright with the new leadership structure and strong positive synergies throughout the organization. I am very optimistic and look forward to making a positive contribution at Executrade for the next several years!

    Cons

    Growing pains with our expansion to other markets.

    Advice to Management

    Keep demonstrating your geniue care for your employees. It will continue to pay off!

    Pros

    The best part is the people: co-workers, clients, candidates - we have the chance to change lives, build friendships and we are a family...regardless of branch or tenure.

    Cons

    The industry is a tough one and we have seen growing pains in the last 40 years but at least it is a company focused on people and growth and change is needed for survival and success.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the people and relationships above all else and you will continue to have the best seek you out.

    Pros

    They do a great job of selling you on how wonderful it is to work here...

    Cons

    Unfortunately, they don't tell you that they have very high turnover of staff and that it is a clique-based organization. If you're not part of the right group of gossipers, you're an outsider.

    Advice to Management

    You should really consider a 3rd party analysis to determine who your troublemakers are and start cleaning house. Your reputation is going downhill fast,

    Pros

    Let me count the ways:

    1. I am appreciated. Executrade encourages and celebrates staff by acknowledging accomplishments and milestone and hosting team building and office social events. Work-life balance and personal accomplishments are recognized as well. People care here.

    2. I am supported. Processes are in place giving me the confidence I am working in step with my coworkers and whenever I need support I never need to look far to pick the brain of the executive team, a mentor, a coworker or an upcoming training session.

    3. I am respected. Ideas and sharing are encouraged. Management cares about my goals and wants to help me accomplish these goals. I have autonomy to manage my schedule.

    4. I have fun! Laughter can be heard on a regular basis. I work with fantastic people and get to meet new people every day.

    5. I am never bored. I am continually challenged and learning new things. There are ample opportunities to take on new responsibilities and participate in capacities outside my position if I'd like.

    Cons

    The ebbs and flow of recruitment can be tough at times. Often for business purposes we need to provide forecasts, which in recruitment I find difficult to predict.

  11. Great people, great atmosphere.

    Pros

    Have met great, sincere, hard-working people while working here and plan to be here a long time.

    Cons

    Executrade is a recruitment firm that rises above and beyond in team coordination and culture - if you are not use to working with a team this may be a difficult organization to succeed in.
