    Good company values and culture, but distracted from goals. No product strategy, some bad hires in executive management.

    (Current Employee)

    ProsLocation is pretty central, offices are ok with lots of light, good benefits and competitive salaries. They invest in employees in the form of a personal development program. Founders are awesome and are fully invested in the company's success. They get lots of good press coverage and awareness of the brand is only growing. Lots of great data and insights drawn from the data the company collects. Clients are more or less happy, and the platform/ technology is getting better.

    ConsFounders have vision and understand the market, but seem to be distracted by people with bad ideas but a great ability to convince others. Sales VPs come and go and lack the ability to execute well. Almost everything is tactical and sales pipeline oriented, versus focusing on long-term strategy, planning and growing mindshare. There is also a great reluctance to try new things and be different. Some people have been around forever and have not grown or kept up with the market. Many of the Directors are simply people-managers and haven't been empowered to have real control or vision for their areas of responsibilities. VPs seem to rule the roost and make plans behind closed doors and provide little transparency.

    Advice to Senior Management1) Enter new segments of the market to grow 2) Empower employees s and get out of their way 3) Invest in mobile technology 4) Really listen to current clients

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

    Lacks culture, process and vision

    Analyst (Former Employee)
    Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsYou will find that there is decent salary and bonuses with a good understanding of what people want for benefits. The office location sits well in the hub of the city which makes it easy to travel to.

    ConsHowever the cons outweight the pros: lacks company culture, upper management is functional and not business oriented, needs less micromanagement and more macro, difficult to make changes to current adhoc environment, lacks process thereby making daily activities unmanageable. Lacking true agile development practices.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter big picture goals, promote hands-off management styles from top of chain

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    The company doesn't have a long term plan

    Business Analyst (Former Employee)
    Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsSalary is good, benefits are good. Pretty good bonus as well. Initial training on the job is 3 weeks. Nice office, lots of light.

    ConsSome really incompetent people in management. They lack any kind of technical knowledge, yet insist on micro-managing everything. They create a lot of meetings, which prevents everyone else from getting any real work done.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdvice to management is to (a) get rid of incompetent managers (b) avoid 'hit & run' style management

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
