    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Maple Leaf Foods full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It is a big company with a lot of perks. Fully paid company car (insurance, gas, 407ETR, repairs, detailing) is a huge bonus for those in Sales. Great place to network and build your resume with "inside sales" experience, without having to actually sell anything.

    Cons

    Politics are unbearable unless you enjoy that environment. Management heavy, with big egos and not a lot of relevant experience, maturity or control. Performance reviews are not based on performance, but on how your department's leader feels about you. A lot of gossip and high-school behaviour in the Sales teams, and not a lot of focus on actually selling their products. Main part of the job in Sales is internal meetings, managing perceptions, and not selling.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house! instead of working at restructuring from the bottom up, you should start with your Senior Leadership team (specially in Sales). Hire some real professionals instead of your friends.
