I have been working at Cogeco Peer 1 full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

A culture where you can truly bring your whole self to work - friendly, fun and engaging. People work hard and are passionate about making the business a success. Informal and relaxed atmosphere without too much hierarchy. Opportunities to learn and grow and Company supports personal and career development. Mantra is communication, trust and building deep relationships. Truly committed to being a values-based organisation.

Cons

Being a young company, sometimes a little immature in terms of infrastructure and policy/ procedure and also needs to work on execution and change management. At times, chaotic and needs to pace change with focus on analysing and addressing the root cause. Doesn't place the same value on operational and tactical leadership as it does strategic, which will be a challenge as the company grows.

Advice to Management

Stay open to different points of view, different personalities and how values and culture can interact in different ways. Remain committed to collaboration - role model it in all personal interactions and value/persue other people's ideas. Take care in developing leadership and strategy as sometimes can feel a little full on. Walk before you can run!

    I have been working at Cogeco Peer 1 full-time

    Pros

    This can be a very fun enjoyable place to work. You do have the ability to move around within the company and learn new & challenging things. There is pressure to perform at times. Also, you can be yourself and not feel threatened. It is a very inclusive environment.

    Cons

    At times, there can be communication errors which can cause confusion among the employees. As with any other career, you must direct your path, otherwise you can stay in the same position for years with no real growth.

    Advice to Management

    As Peer 1 introduces to new products or changes in an effort to keep up with the rest of the industry, it must remain vigilant to keep communication at the forefront. At times, the company can appear out of sync with its messages.

    I have been working at Cogeco Peer 1 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People are at the heart of every interaction and every business decision PEER 1 makes. Building an engaged and passionate team is one of our top corporate goals; fostering a culture of learning, growth and high performance is one of our strategic priorities for this year; and at the core of it all is a vision to be the most human company on the web. Through a focus on leadership, growth, accountability and values, we have truly built a special place to work.

    Cons

    We are a growing company in a growing industry, which means we experience growing pains like any young and nimble organization. And with offices throughout North America and EMEA, there is a lot of learning and opportunities to be creative when collaborating and building connections with peers in other offices.

    Advice to Management

    Keep bringing your whole, authentic self to your role as a leader and we will continue to prove that anything truly is possible!
