    Life altering

    Several Over Many Years (Former Employee) Pointe-Claire, QC (Canada)

    ProsEndless learning potential. Opportunity for career building and changing within one building.
    Some of the best friends you'll ever have will work here.

    ConsUpper management tends to be quite dreadful and most have had their souls removed. Having said that; some of the best and worst times of my life took place there. You have to make Future your experience and always remember, take as much from the experience as you can. Use it all to your advantage.

    Advice to Senior ManagementToo far gone. Being that high up; you've no choice really in order to stay there.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Waaay too much backstabbing, nepotism, cronyism, unprofessionalism, unethical conduct and legal gray zone navigating.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsYou will definitely meet competent, professional and occasionally brilliant individuals. Too bad they don't last long.

    ConsWhere to begin? This is a wholly-privately owned corporation. Forget about any protection (through shareholder/public oversight) that you may expect from a properly-run publically-traded company. Paranoia reigns supreme and there are VPs and senior VPs that have only cronyism to thank for their positions, as most of them exercise what would be considered certainly unethical and borderline illegal behaviour in their day-to-day dealings.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone. They are broken beyond repair.

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

    A very special company with a very special culture

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsA lot of opportunties to grow and develop if you are in one of the main centres. Your ideas can be implemented and made global within a relatively short time if they are good.

    ConsLack of trust to employees, horrible back stabbing politics. If you are in sales, advancement possibilities are very limited if you aren't in one of the three regional HQs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook a lot more at what people actually do and not at what they tell you they do.

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

    A typical, impersonal 21st century employer featuring a mixture of competent and incompetent management.

    Senior Analyst (Former Employee) Pointe-Claire, QC (Canada)

    ProsAn island of English speakers amidst an ocean of French. Multi-unit organization, with branches in over 150 countries. You will meet competent and interesting individuals. Some opportunities for growth, but reserved for cronies.

    ConsThere is no avoiding the politics. You are either "with us, or against us". Cronyism and nepotism run rampant. Consequently, management, including senior management is populated by paranoid, spineless, back-stabbing, often-incompetent sycophants who will suck the life out of any competent, ethical individual. Unethical and dubious business practices have resulted in ongoing attrition and the outright defections of strategic partners and suppliers. A revolving door of misery. Two stars allocated only due to the calibre of some of its workforce.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone. You are broken toys.

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

    Definitely a learning experience both professionally and personally.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsLots of room to learn and grow through the on-site training sessions and invaluable personnel.

    ConsOverly micro-managed. For those who don't require it, this can be a hindrance. Too much time is spent on reporting instead of putting the energy where it's needed - in the field with the customers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReward your people better as was done in the past. Return to a more personalized service structure within the company to embolden a sense of ownership.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
