    I have been working at The Standard full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    *Added 10 PTO days on top of the 3.5-5 weeks they already give for PTO during virus
    *Ability to work from home
    *CEO genuinely cares about employees
    *Family vibe
    *Great work environment
    *Fantastic benefits
    *You feel cared for

    *Career advancement
    *Career development (a lot of help here, managers sitting down with you to discuss where you want to go)
    *Amazing bonus opportunities and pay raise incentives
    *Successful ERG's

    During this pandemic, the company has been nothing but kind, compassionate and flexible with employees. A senior manager said to our team "you come first, we want to make sure you're comfortable."

    If you get the chance to work here, you're of value. This company is incredible. If you get the chance to interview during this pandemic, do everything in your power to be the best interviewee. You won't regret your decision to work here. This isn't a typical corporation you hear horror stories about- this is a corporation that other companies should learn from. Truly a leader in the industry when it comes to care and community.

    Cons

    Nothing at this time. Maybe issues with parking? But that's expected when working anywhere downtown.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being kind and caring leaders to employees. My current department is nothing but full of amazing managers. They are logical, receptive, caring and easy to work with. I don't feel intimidated. If anything I feel empowered to work with them. I look up to a lot of them.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Standard.

    Interview

    Applied online, got the first automated message but nothing after that. 2 weeks later they withdrew my app and said that I never answered them when contacted them multiple times. Definitely will think twice about apply when companies try and pull that.
