    Pros

    This is a culture that encourages individual growth and learning. We have educational tools at our disposal and we are encouraged to use them to develop as professionals.

    Cons

    Sugary of high calorie snacks might be shared in the break room too often.

    Pros

    Over 7 years in and I still love it. The culture here is great and everyone is always ready to help. The departments work really well together, especially when there is a large project.

    I'm the head of the Marketing department and am surrounded by very talented people across the organization, from top down. I do truly enjoy coming into the office everyday.

    I joined the company as an intern and have been given the opportunities to grow within. In over 7 years of service, the company has grown significantly and it's really exciting to be a part of its development. In the years I have been with the company, I have seen people come and go... But truly, the majority of the employees are here for 10+ years, which makes this company the perfect place to build a career.

    Cons

    With growth and expansion come challenges. As a manager, I sometimes have to wear many hats, but in the end, the results pay off.

    Workplace Essentials has the comfort and support of a small company with the innovation, opportunities and benefits of a much larger organization. During my 9 years here, I have been involved in many areas of the company and have grown as a professional.

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

    Pros

    Lots of time off. Excellent health benefits.

    Cons

    VERY hard product to sell. Lots of competition. Small company. Constantly changing territories several times throughout the year. If you close a sale and customer cancels within the first year you owe all of your commissions back to the company. Owner makes her own rules and constantly changes them in her favor. Sales turn over extremely high. Moral very low.

    I was always surrounded by positive, like-minded people. We had pizza once a month, BBQ in the summer, casual Fridays and a very relaxed work atmosphere. There was a good balance between work and fun!

    Sometimes communication is just OK.
