    Fast paced, difficult mangement, not much promoting from within

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) McLean, VA

    ProsThis company will keep you very busy. Most employees do the work of about three or four different people so if you like a stressful and fast paced enviornment than this is the place for oyu!

    ConsPeople are fired very quickly and with basically no notice leaving the rest of the employees with more work to do. The leaders seem out of touch with the moral of the company. People are constantly quitting.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you treat your employees with respect and hire from within than you're more likely to keep the good employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Corrupt and toxic environment

    Sales Agent (Former Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsStable job with okay pay.Benefit package is the best any company offers in Canada.Each employee was entitled to six pairs of expensive shoes as part of the benefits package. Unbelievable package indeed.

    ConsRampant problem of reverse racism, hires and retains people of south Asian origin ( Indians & Pakistanis ) and systematically lets go of everyone else.Our manager made sure 90% of team was made up of people from these two communities.One white man was kept for the sake of Canadiana.However, when the downturn came, our manager shed his mere pretense of Canadiana.The white employee was let go of right away.The Indians & Pakistanis got lucrative severance packages or better jobs in other departments.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep an eye on your junior and middle management.They are resorting to unethical practices.I worked in the Sales & Loyalty team, which later got merged with the Commercial Sales department.Some members of the Sales & Loyalty team ran a theft ring in the parking lot of the office property during business hours with the knowledge of our department manager!The leader of the theft ring was on good terms with the manager.He was once caught by the parking management company but was let off.He quit & joined a GTA hospital as a nurse.Another incident involved an out-of-turn hiring. An Indian lady worked in the tech support.She used to visit our department and chat up with our manager.She got married and succeeded in getting a job for her husband.This man had a job ready for him upon landing in Canada.

    Overall not bad but not impressive

    Sales Representative (Former Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsGood people and good mood. The staff works hard, Sales person tried to get more revenue even though the solutions is not much competitive to the big carrier such as Bell, Roger and Allstream,

    ConsNo change to make the competitive solution to the big companies. Post sales service is bad such as order process, customer service and sometimes tech support. It relies on Bell loop for many service so the timeframe for process is so long the customer can't wait.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the good people in terms of the performance. Think out of box in terms of the process. Many processes hasn't been changed for 10 years the technology and market is changing everyday though.

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

    Abusive Immoral Toxic Management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Vancouver, BC (Canada)

    Prossalary is received on time. The office is located downtown and is easily accessible by transit. There are restaurants and convenience stores located close by.

    ConsEmployee abuse by management, mobbing by some employee, political games, post traumatic stress disorder, uncooperative atmosphere and lack of leadership are some of the cons

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhat about the code of conduct that all employees and management are supposed to follow. Does HR even educate the employees about the code of conduct... The culture makes or breaks the company ... gross violation of human rights..

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