    I have been working at T4G full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Has been voted 10 times as one of Canada's Best Workplaces
    - Office space is great and environment is friendly
    - Flexible working arrangements to accommodate work/life balance

    Cons

    - Can be challenging to coordinate efforts/projects with so many team members working remotely
    - Lack of urgency in some situations creates barriers to serving clients and prospects well

    Advice to Management

    Encouraging that additional investments have been made in seeking and winning new business. Practice Leaders should be more vocal in communicating what is going on in the market respective of their Practice and what they are doing from a project standpoint.

    I worked at T4G full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with
    Known well by their customers
    Flexible work environments

    Cons

    No growth opportunities
    No mentorship programs + Lack of trust = all big projects go to veterans in the company
    Sales and Marketing team was introduced recently, but obviously this takes a lot of time to obtain new clients, hence any new business is small and rare.
    The company is trying to come up with big ideas to expand revenue, when proposals for smaller in house projects have been turned down.
    The company has regular innovative brainstorming sessions, yet nothing ever gets executed.

    Advice to Management

    Evolve with external environments. Big changes are needed because there are many young companies starting up taking over. T4G is not as big as some other professional service firms, yet not a start up. Competition is tough against big names due to their experiences and also tough against new companies willing provide services at a discount. T4G is trying to cover all industries (being the jack of all trades). Focus on your core knowledge and if creating a product is not an option then start partnering with product companies so that T4G services can be highlighted and offered more.

    "Great Company"

    I have been working at T4G full-time

    Pros

    Great Benefits
    My role provided ability to work from home a lot, but not all positions do.
    Great people, more of a community feel in the workplace.

    Cons

    Most business units are not on time with the yearly charter updates which determine your pay increase. This means you can often go quite a while without a raise.

    Advice to Management

    I feel like as the company grows it is moving away from many of the things that made it great. You need to focus on keeping the culture as it was when you were smaller Or make a conscious decision to make changes if they make more sense where the company is headed.

    I have been working at T4G full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work generally isn't difficult. Work-life balance is good. The lack of direction and metrics from management means that there's little managerial oversight and often downtime, which has its positives. There's often freedom regarding how tasks are performed and with which tools.

    Cons

    A complete lack of performance metrics and very little accountability means that coworkers are often under-qualified, underperforming, or both. As long as clients aren't complaining about missed deliverables (and sometimes even when they are!), poor performers stick around and are sometimes even given raises and promotions if they're smooth talkers in annual reviews.

    "Annual" reviews occur only after months of nagging and rescheduling.

    Budget always seems to be tight. Clients are being lost often enough that it's noticeable and concerning.

    Technical decisions are often confusing, and some core tools and infrastructure are severely out-of-date or unsuited for their purpose.

    Hiring practices are noticeably skewed towards a single demographic. There are very few female engineers, and even fewer visible minorities. In a city like Toronto, this sticks out.

    Advice to Management

    Hire sharp young people that want to do things in new ways (and let them do so). Implement performance metrics and increase accountability. Get rid of dead weight. Rethink archaic processes.
