    Great culture, nice people, amazing manager. Allows their employees to work independent.

    Pros

    Great people, excellent work-life balance, treats everyone like people and like adults, trusting and caring of employees, very flexible, overall a fantastic place to work. Lots of industry expertise and lots of people with 20+ years in retail and at Canadian Tire, with lots of great perspectives and information. Culture and people are wonderful; you would struggle to find better people and a more engaging, accepting culture.

    Cons

    Large company, slow to make changes, upper management not always seemingly aware or invested in what is happening in support teams, thus loses ability to support changes that would increase efficiencies (despite this, senior management is very, very supportive at a distance, and some lack of awareness is likely due to how little time they have and how it is allotted - not an individual failing, more seems a structural oversight).
    Company at large seems to struggle with maintaining great talent, likely due to less than market rate compensation.

    I worked at Canadian Tire full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and profit sharing. Good salary.

    Cons

    Big ships turn slowly. Good ideas often die on the shelf or go uncredited. Status quo maintainers get rewarded as long as they maintain the status quo in a professional manner. Not as nimble or innovative as one might like.

    Advice to Management

    You were talking about breaking down the silos 15 years ago. Probably hasn't happened yet. You need to encourage and enable teams to work together. More perspectives and more flexibility will help. Don't step on the truth tellers or deny the dreamers, they can be hard to manage but have much to offer. You'll have to accept some disruption of the status quo in order to progress. Oh and for goodness sake, don't make technical people sit through long irrelevant meetings for the sake of 'team building'. True team building is fine. But 3 hours of reports about work that you are not involved in any way is a bit much. Teach presenters that reading a list of bullets off a screen is unacceptable.
