    I have been working at Silver Chef full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I have worked at Silver Chef for just over 7-months in a full-time position. As my first office job, Silver Chef continues provide opportunities to learn and expand my skills. The staff are treated very well and there is an amazing office atmosphere. I was recently offered an opportunity that requires me to travel for multiple months over the summer. I was planning on putting in my two-weeks notice and would re-apply...

    Pros

    Great Culture and People! I’ve been with Silver Chef for almost a year and this is by far the best culture I’ve ever been a part of. They are a really values driven, and it shows in how they recruit for people. The process is long but it’s worth it because they hire the right people with the right values. The result is that you have a group of people that are fantastic work with – I enjoy seeing everybody’s faces everyday!...

    Cons

    Of course there are things that can be improved – like sometimes the communication can be a little bit better – but they have made some really important changes in the last year or so and I see things improving every day.

    I have been working at Silver Chef full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Silver Chef has gone through a lot of positives changes this year. The team has done a much needed investment and realignment to ensure we are all on the same level to each of our other regions and to ensure we have the same goal in sight "To achieve our customers dreams". Part of this alignment has been the large investment in our people and benefits each employee has, some of the highlights are; Four weeks annual...

    Cons

    Silver Chef is currently going through a system overhaul and doing upgrades across the board. Currently we use systems such as Salesforce and also older systems which can at times slow daily routines down. In the coming months this this should hopefully change and make it easier for each employee. If your prepared to put in the extra mile and work hard, than this is the company for you!

    Advice to Management

    Keep all communication open to each employee, no matter how big or small.

    I have been working at Silver Chef full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Growing company. A professional yet fun culture. Effort and achievement is recognised. Yaletown location and a funky office space. Amazing benefits package (new). 4 weeks annual leave. Global company. Heavy investment in leading technology software such as Salesforce.

    Cons

    Not a well-known brand outside of the hospitality industry. A lot of meetings. A lot of initiatives are set by Head Office in Australia and often not applicable or practical in the Canadian market.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more time and effort in our technology solution and core Rent-Try-Buy product and less time on peripheral product offerings and revenue streams.

    Cons

    The organisation can be reactive. Sometimes it feels as though employees identify problems but aren’t listened to until the problem becomes critical. There is also an opportunity for senior leadership to look at the organisation holistically rather than in silos.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work on improving the technology and focusing on innovation. Please listen to the ideas and concerns raised by the teams so that we can be more proactive.

    I worked at Silver Chef full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Culture people overall very good place to work with good life balance and purpose can’t really say much else to be honest

    Cons

    Not many aside from system and processes along with constant change which made it interesting but challenging, salary little light

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees more often and reward people based on more than just attitude results count just as much

    - so many genuinely good people - a company that works hard to hold profit and purpose equally - an awesome product that really benefits the hospitality industry

    As any other fast growing company changes and improvements are to be made and adaptability and openness are key in any role. This company challenges you a lot for sure. (See this as part of the Pros. or as a con)

    I have been working at Silver Chef

    Pros

    Good culture and benefits. Friendly people who do care about what they do

    Cons

    Awful systems, and a culture of blame in the staff in the back end systems when customer facing roles are just trying to perform their jobs with what resources they have. Have faced similar issues in other companies though.

    Advice to Management

    Good reason to get rid of Gogetta, now a job needs to be done to actually execute all of the ideas management are coming up with.
