    Long hours, average pay, poor leadership practices & culture

    Jun 26, 2021 - Specialist, Customer Marketing in Toronto, ON
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - You don't need lots of relevant experience to join the team (Managers train you up) - Good projects and cross-functional leadership opportunities - Challenging work environment

    Cons

    - Lots of turnover - Poor culture (long hours, competitive and stressful, big focus on projects over people, serious vibe, old school leadership practices) - Compensation is very average - If a Manager doesn't like you, you get limited visibility & opportunities to grow - No separate salary band for experienced professionals (new grads come in as specialists) - Poor leadership: management engages in a lot of credit stealing, command and control leadership style, expect to be micromanaged and ignored for your contributions in meetings
