    I have been working at Socomec full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly environment; flexible schedule; full training on work areas and tasks; headquarter staff flown in for training (or travel to France for training); work load management and support offered; good perks and benefits; great location; opportunities for travel; support on professional development if initiative is showed; friendly, intimate staff handling business for all of North America. Team work is definitely needed and encouraged. Suggestions are well received, if you can manage to submit them respectfully and constructively.

    Cons

    Re-structure of company and staff changes made for a difficult transition in the summer, but off to a good start for the fall. More people would be helpful, but new hires are also now in place; very fast-paced (nothing I've ever seen before); not for someone who cannot multi-task or pay attention to details.

    Advice to Management

    Look into ways we can get more support and more staff. CONTINUE to listen and improve on team building activities as a staff. MORE 'world-wide' Socomec conferences to get to know our fellow Socomec worldwide staff.

    I worked at Socomec full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Location is great. They pay for parking at a nearby garage or if you take the T it's within walking distance to the green and red line T. Pay is competitive and they offer annual bonuses even to admin staff.

    Cons

    Training of new employees and products is offered but not good. The office is a small group of 4-5 people and the space is open so no privacy. Not a team feel or environment although you are expected to be a team. Management is awful. Overall employees don't seem happy and it reflects in the mood of the office.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be trained on how to listen to employees, provide guidance and suggestions. Needs to be honest with candidates about the work and requirements.
