    I worked at Workopolis full-time

    Pros

    The people are great

    Cons

    Direction of the company is everywhere in the worst possible way.
    Turn over is very high as the management team doesn't even have the experience to grow company.
    Very old school way of thinking and growing company.
    Has no clue what to do about the competition.
    Overall a bad experience and would not recommend unless you need to start somewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees as they are the first line and keep up with times.
    New products are always not the answer to declining sales.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    People are good. Location not bad. Work life balance is decent.

    Cons

    President is a poor leader. Period. Zero people skills. She has no vision or strategy for business. Many people in company either leaving or left questioning the direction of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent and strategic about the business. Demonstrate that you care about the people who are left there.

    Pros

    Amazing people that truly care about the company and its success. I love coming to work and having the ability to work with such smart, bright, and respectful colleagues. Every single person on the team is an A-Player and Workopolis does take the time to ensure that everyone that they bring on will fit in the corporate culture and can work effortlessly with the many teams that we have at Workopolis.

    Cons

    Nothing significant to address. In my experience, management has been very approachable and open to ideas and solutions that will make things better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do and keep the company aligned and focused to achieve success. :)

    Pros

    My recruiter, Shawn D'Souza, was amazing. He was intuitive, communicative, and a pro at his job. Once hired, my direct manager sent me my very detailed (in increments of 15m) onboarding itinerary. My first week was great! People here are supportive and happy. I highly recommend working with Workopolis.
    Great downtown location, full kitchen, meeting rooms, open concept work space.

    Cons

    I do not have any cons to report.
