I worked at Goodmans full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Awesome culture. Everyone functions as a family and are always willing to help each other out. The moral within the firm is great!

Cons

The pay scale is a little bit lower than it should be for IT compared to industry standards. It's hard to learn and excel due to the fact many consultants are hired. Not a lot of in-house processes.

Advice to Management

My supervisor was great! Nothing to change.

    Pros

    Pays/treats assistants well compared to other big firms.
    Management has flexibility and will discuss with employee work load or work-related problems with view to help rather than to punish.
    Provides good training upon hiring and continuous as needed.
    Job security - they did not lay off anyone during recession even though they could've used the savings on overhead costs and suffered like all other big firms.

    Cons

    Bad benefit package compared to other big firms.
    Not much room within company to move up. The nature of the jobs is such that there is not much movement within firm.
    Little overtime opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Improve benefits package.
    Provide more overtime opportunities.
    Provide some perks, as used to do with fruit days etc.

    I have been working at Goodmans full-time

    Pros

    Lunch & Learn (if you can manage to attend). Celebrations for all faiths and cultures shared by the firm as a whole.

    Cons

    Salary not up to par with other firms. Summer party is gone. Too many cliques ... a table reserved for "Ladies Who Lunch". Really? It actually has a permanent reserved sign for a specific group of secretaries so they always get 'their' table. Too many good people have been forced or quit and the staff that remains are overworked. Supervisors need an overhaul, but that will never happen because they ingratiate themselves with HR. No recourse with HR, then where do you go? Elsewhere to work.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the old Goodmans - stop hiring HR people that only do your bidding who actually work for the staff. You can only bandage the situation for so long.
