    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Roots Canada full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Beautiful environment and great work to do with nice yoga classes at lunch time.

    Cons

    Lots of gossip and lack of clarity from leadership. A very top down type of management. Very low acceptance of innovative ideas. No flexibility to work from home occasionally.

    Advice to Management

    Try to make everything more transparent and fair to all employees equally. Don’t show any incentive to toxic behaviour in the team. And think of a more modern approach to leadership where as a result, employees feel more empowered, respected and motivated.
