    I have been working at First Media full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some nice people but we can't enjoy our time together at work.

    Cons

    Disorganized
    Petty
    Horibble atmosphere, everyone always afraid of getting fired.
    Owner and new 'business development' manager always yelling at staff.
    Direction of jobs change every other week and then owner says why didn't you finish this.
    Cancelled rrsp match and no bonus at all.
    Getting worse since some key management left.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring idiots and bring back some if the old staff who actually cared about your business.

    Give praise when its due.

    Stop threatening to fire people.

    review management as hard as you do staff and maybe you will see better results

    Pros

    They offer a RRSP contribution matching up to maximum 4% of gross salary after being with the company 2 years.

    Cons

    Disorganized, lack of communication between departments. Physical office space is uncomfortable and a placed together without regard to creating a professional and pleasant atmosphere. As a customer I would be hesitant seeing the space as to the legitimacy of the work done there.
