I have been working at GS1 Canada full-time
Pros – -One of the best benefits out there
-Central headoffice location
-Great business model, will continue to grow
-Great President and CFO
Cons – -Definately no work life balance
-Super micro-management (from my departments perspective)
-High employee turnover
Advice to Senior Management – Stop being in denial and actually listen to employees. Act on concerns raised by ex-employees during exit interviews. President and CFO professes the ideals but their management team is not following through. Employees are Suffocating.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I have been working at GS1 Canada full-time for more than 3 years
Pros – Wonderful service to industry. Provides access to senior leadership in a variety of industry sectors. Visionary president. Opportunities to work on global initiatives.
Cons – Little or no turnover at VP and SVP level. This level is extremely unskilled. This is reflected in the staff turnover and dissatisfaction. Too many executive family members are appearing as employees.
Priorities are constantly changing. Workload is ever increasing. President seems unwilling to confront lack of managerial skill at executive level. Executive behaviors are tolerated that would be unacceptable in the private sector. Also a number of featherbedding consultants
Advice to Senior Management – Bring in executive leadership that is experienced and proven. Remove family members from staff. Reduce the role of consultants and empower dedicated staff

I worked at GS1 Canada
Pros – Great people to work with in a NFP environment. Small office atmospher with a get it done attitude. Godd team efforts.
Cons – Small office with the politics that come with a small office. Trying to grow but not sure of the marketplace they should be aiming for.
Advice to Senior Management – Keep a clear path on where you want to go and make sure you have the right people steering the ship.
