    Pros

    Frankly speaking the best reason to work here is the people. There are some who are lazy, uncommitted and less-than-intelligent, but most are genuinely fantastic people who are trying to cobble together a sense of unity amongst them. Unfortunately the pros end there.

    Cons

    The acumen of many managers and supervisors is dubious at best. There is little transparency about vertical movement, so you just hope that your tenure will bring promotions and recognition. Hope doesn't pay your bills though.

    The company moves at a pace and rhythm which is too fast for its own good; it's akin to building an airplane in the sky. There's nothing wrong with ambition, charging through acquisitions and expansion offesr your labour infrastructure little time to adjust and become as proficient as possible. Right now they're too occupied with learning the next set of processes.

    The above statements are admittedly from a subjective experience, I am half-certain that other people have had better opportunities there.

    That being said, there is one fact that can't be debated in terms of relativity; wage. The non-managerial pay is diametrically lower than the average no matter what the title is. If you're applying for a job there, please tack on another 15-25% in your salary negotiations. Speaking of numbers speaking the truth, the turnover in most departments is high. Too high. That should speak volumes about employee satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Two words: corporate culture. You have none. Too many employees are embittered and hopeless about their future. Social nights, RRSP contributions, rewards for hard workers, etc....they all go a long way. I'll leave with this quote from Richard Branson, someone who should know about running a business:

    “Convention dictates that a company looks after its shareholders first, its customers next, and last of all worries about its employees. Virgin does the opposite. For us, our employees matter most. It just seems common sense to me that, if you start off with a happy well motivated workforce, you’re much more likely to have happy customers. And in due course the resulting profits will make your shareholders happy."

    I have been working at Pivotal Payments full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was given the opportunity to re-build a team and I have the autonomy to do so. My boss tasked me with the most challenging but yet the most rewarding opportunity of my career. Because Pivotal is a smaller company I have less red tape to cut down and more ability to make changes.

    Cons

    With pros there is cons. Although I have the autonomy to do what is needed, I have less resources than what a larger company would have. It just creates more challenge for me, but I am not afraid of the challenge as long as I have the ability to make decisions and execute.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate strategy plans to the whole company. There are a lot of moving parts and it would be nice to have the executive leadership share more often in a formal setting.
