    I worked at Innovapost full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Encourages employees to expand their skillsets
    -Great Managers
    -Great Salary
    -Overtime pay for when you have to work late
    -Friendly Coworkers
    -Good benefits package for medical and dental

    Cons

    -Big company, things can move slowly
    -Outdated buildings in Ottawa
    -Vending machines are $1.50 (really?)
    -Canada Post politics

    Advice to Management

    If you want to be more innovative, promote younger people to management roles and hold monthly Q&A sessions where people can freely express ideas. There is too much of a barrier between level 1-3 employees and management at Innovapost and Canada Post.

    Pros

    People are friendly and down to earth. Knowledgable in their respective fields and hard at work.

    Cons

    Like any big organisation, there are weighty processes that slows down the pace of work. The physical locations are not the best either, however, pros out weights the cons.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to keep your employees for a longer period of time, your should consider increasing the pay scales.

    Friendly coworkers, nice working environment, flexible working hours, nice social activities, employee appreciation days. Yearly bonuses are available to employees who quality for them.

    Cons

    Work place still has an old world mentality stemming from many of the senior employees once working with Canada Post. Very difficult for younger employees to advance unless they become "buddies" with senior coworkers.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance, company is very good in their contributions to the community

    Cons

    Hard to find Director-level people who know how to value the contributions and potential of its employees. Less optimal work means more support revenue for this company.

    Advice to Management

    Need a thorough review of the appraisal process. Learn to have faith on skills of your own people rather than outsiders'.
