    Pros

    Good group of people, smart and intelligent. Business intelligence is an growth space. Compensation is fair. Team collaboration is good.

    The company strategy seems to change often a day is more verbal than documented. Although a good entrepreneurial business there is limited room for development.

    You are able to attract a great group of consultants and employees. Establishing a move forward strategy and sticking to the plan is needed.

    Great team dynamics

    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    Pros

    After 5 years, TC still provides for an environment where I can learn, grow and try new things. The company is open to change and allows for personal and professional growth.

    Cons

    Occasionally feel out of touch from the rest of the organization as teams are spread throughout the GTA. Improved knowledge sharing would be appreciated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communication throughout the company as staff is at multiple client sites including regular updates, return of the employee newsletter and team building events.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    Pros

    a smaller company so you can easily see what is happening, reasonable pay for IT consultant. clients limited to GTA so no out of town travel.

    Cons

    you are a treated as a resource. your work may not have continuity and career direction is not clear. training is not given priority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    need to see employee perspective. quality of work is important not only appeasement to client. what are emploee retention plans?

  7.  

    Avoid unless strapped for cash

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Manager  in  Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Former Employee - Manager in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    Pros

    If you are young, inexperienced and have little options then Thoughtcorp may be a good choice to get exposure to different things.

    Cons

    Leadership divided, no vision or strategy, somewhat of a sweat shop and very little learning opportunities.
    Too much favouritism with certain people and a lack of expertise in any area really limits the amount of learning you can do. The owners are nice and interesting but really don't bring anything to the table in terms of expertise. The same goes for the senior management. I doubt any of them would land a senior role in a bigger firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should really invest in some sort of niche and bring in the right people to run it.
