    Toxic Office Environment - Steer clear!! Toronto office

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood benefits
    10% pre-tax company contribution to RRSP

    ConsDysfunctional management
    Office morale is very low
    Very low (if any) raises and bonuses

    Good benefits but management is dysfunctional

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Toronto, ON

    ProsGreat overall benefits - 10% company contribution to the RRSP with no employee contribution required

    ConsSmall office so very little chance for career advancement
    Raises and bonuses are pathetic (2013 there is no raise at all)
    Management communication is non existent
    Losing more clients than gaining
    Office morale is horrible

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive employees a raise to at least match the cost of living increase.
    Bonuses are a joke - Make it worthwhile to show that employees are valued
    Communicate openly with the office on what is going on with the business

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
