    Pros

    Pareto had a great vision of combining multiple marketing services together under one umbrella. Unfortunately, they were unable to instill this vision across the various silos of the operation.

    Cons

    Each division operated as one.
    There was a lot of complaining about what the other divisions should have done, and this was unproductive.
    Not everyone was overly concerned with the customer.
    Pareto had a big vision, but was unable to execute at the

    I worked at Pareto full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pareto was a an awesome progressive company with a unique vision and culture until 2012. they were a leader in the space of Shopper Marketing and able to boast a list of leading brands as clients.

    Cons

    The business leaders were required by the new investors to focus on unrealistic growth and do anything to make the nunmbers. The focus on the clients and the employees was eroded and what was once a great business and work environment became an unbearable place to be. The end was devastating for the meployees, clients, and shareholders and the company crumbled into bankruptcy under the leadership of the US Investors and their newly appointed CEO.

    Advice to Management

    To the Canadian Leadership -- it was great while it lasted. Sorry it ended as it did.
