    I have been working at Innovapost full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    We have built our own culture over the past 10 years that sets us apart. We are extremely involved in our community and many of our initiatives are led from the bottom up with great support from our leadership!

    Cons

    Our bilingualisme is not recognized or renumerated even though it is used and an asset to our team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your open door policy, get involved and participate at our corporate and community events.

    Former Employee - Senior Consultant in Ottawa, ON (Canada)
    Former Employee - Senior Consultant in Ottawa, ON (Canada)

    I worked at Innovapost full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Strong bonus program each year - makes up for lower than industry salaries
    Flexible working, mobile access, hands-off management
    Ability to 'define your own job'

    Cons

    Limited advancement opportunities
    Narrow industry focus, very limited client base
    Somewhat 'sheltered' from the real world - limited opportunity to interact in real tech or business world

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to encourage more cross-functional involvement. Very silo'd across the groups - technical, vs. BDM, vs. Corporate Services
    Encourage more cross-client involvement as much as possible
    Bring in speakers from the 'real' world to bridge the gap caused by the 'one' client.
