Best work atmosphere I've ever experienced

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I have been working at Questrade full-time for more than a year

ProsThe company culture and work atmosphere is unreal. Everyone is friendly and there is such a close knit culture about the company. It's like being a part of a rapidly expanding family.

ConsMy office faces the North side of the building and it gets chilly in the winter. The elevators are also a bit slow.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the pizza parties and other company events coming, they're amazing.
