    I have been working at True North ITG full-time

    Pros

    I have worked for True North for over 4 years. They have never missed a pay check to me and always been honest about my position. Most qualified people have stayed with the company and turnover is low. There is tremendous growth opportunity for self starters.

    Cons

    The company is not large so unless you can come on board and contribute value and work hard like the rest of the team, your not going to be able to sit at your desk and post pictures on Facebook all day and keep your job.

    Advice to Management

    Be forthcoming to people being hired from Large Corporations who are used to getting a paycheck without producing anything.

    I worked at True North ITG full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None. OK maybe the people. but not the management.

    Cons

    wasn't informed of financial problems, even when i asked multiple times. Was pretty much lied to about issues within the company. Was laid off after only a short time due to "cash flow issues" after having turned down other offers to go there. feel conned.

    Advice to Management

    be truthful about issues, and get operational issues under control.

  3. "Not a bad place to start"

    I worked at True North ITG as an intern

    Pros

    Management was very focused on the clients best interest. They were very good at their job as well as listening to advice from employees.

    Cons

    Management expected very long hours during a few key projects. Nothing out of the ordinary.

    Pros

    Come to work for these guys and they'll treat you like family. I was given a lot of work, but I was also given a lot of support. There is a lot to learn here. When I decided to take a role at Microsoft, they were all supportive of my move. I drop in from time to time still and feel nothing but love. These are all great guys that care about what they do.

    Cons

    It's a small company, there was a lot of work to do. this may not be the best place for a clock puncher.

    Advice to Management

    Stay Classy.

    Pros

    True North has provided a comfortable, relaxed, and true "northwest feel" work environment. Employees are given the freedom to be creative and excel within their area of expertise. The entire staff gets along great and are able to enjoy each other while completing the task at hand.
    Management is supportive and always encouraging growth. I have encountered nothing but respect from all True North employees, from the top down.
    Everyone here cares about each other and continue to strive for the company and all employees to succeed.
    At the end of the day, I love my job and all the people I work with and for. I look forward to my future with True North and helping this company grow.

    Cons

    Work on a better training and on-boarding process. Because True North is growing we are in uncharted waters when it comes to building new departments and processes. This is and will be an ongoing work in progress.

    Pros

    True North is a growing start up company with a lot of great opportunities. An overall, down-to-earth staff with a low-key, low-profile kind of feel to it's company culture and environment. The owners overall are positive, wonderful individuals to work with and for as well as most of the staff there. If you are driven, ambitious, goal-oriented they will have means to utilize that enthusiasm towards better placements within the company or at least, they will plan and envision for it.

    Cons

    Disorganized, homogeneous and unprofessional are True North's main weaknesses. Disorganized because of its poor means to properly train and communicate well with its staff. It has been the result of common mistakes and inefficient use within its operating system. Homogenous as most of its current and newly hired staff consisted of white, males between 30-40 years of age. The overall demeanor and personality type was fairly unprofessional due to its common use of derogatory jokes often made.

    Advice to Management

    Provide solid and proper training. Be careful about how you talk about your customers and your employees with your staff. Show and be the example of your vision.

    Keep within structured means (i.e. employees train in accordance to their departmental managers). Otherwise, there often had been confusion on the way particular issues needed to be handled due to varietal feedback from too many departments.
