    I have been working at Canada Goose full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Opportunity to build processes from ground up - Working with ambitious and passionate young people - Unique global brand - Great bonus structure: beneficial as the company is growing rapidly so make more $$$$ - Decent perks: nice office, gym, 50% jacket discount

    Cons

    - Culture: it is a very toxic culture which is based on dishonesty, gossip and favouritism. feedback is inconsistent and very emotionally charged. Poor relationships amongst different departments. It is very fear driven. - Executive Team: All of them hate each other, meaning no one can agree on a long term growth strategy for the business. The initiatives change frequently, often leaving lower level employees... confused about the reasoning. Decisions are made without explanations. No clear direction. No transparency. - Career progression: No room for advancement. Unlike many companies, they do not have a process set up to discuss and plan for a future career with the organization. Attitude is very much you come in do your work and that is it. - Salary: Is not on par with the industry - the only place you make a lot of money is if you are a Director and above. They will lure in young people with the name of the brand but will not pay you to show they respect you and your efforts. - Vacation or time off: This is seen as a negative and is often used as a weakness by the HR and Management team against employees. - Turn over and firing : A lot of people get fired - everyone from low level to CMOs and CFOs. People get fired with no reason or explanation. People also leave quickly - is incredibly high because people don't see a long term future with the organization. HR does not see this as a concern, but it often causes for a trickle down effect on the work for the next person who takes over that desk. In short - Canada Goose hires fast and fires fast. There is no room for support, transparency or consistent feedback to grow professionally.

    Advice to Management

    This company has an AMAZING amount of growth potential, but the toxic culture will burn the organization down. Recognize that change is happening fast, but understand how to rebuild the culture to support people to grow.

    Pros

    - ok discount - product sells itself - store closes early

    Cons

    -its easy to get hired here, not the best screening process -the management is half good, half really really bad -managers talk behind eachothers backs about who they think will get fired -managers more obsessed with themselves than their work -super slow and boring in the spring/summer

    Advice to Management

    you know how sketchy and fake you are, time to turn that around and start acting professional if you want to keep your jobs and for employees to stay.
