    Pros

    If you have no other options, this is the place for you. No hope of learning, development or decent compensation.

    Cons

    Highly political - management - Canadian operation led through fear and intimidation - people live in fear of losing the low paying job - majority of staff do not have a college/university education, and no hope of advancement

    Learn basic selling of over 100 vendor lines

    Cons

    Pay your best and hard working employees.
    Lack of recognition to their best employees.
    Does not allow BYOD - Really? In this day in age?
    Technology company that uses outdated technology for internal use.
    The only company I work for where Year over Year your paycheck gets smaller.
    Strict and controlling company.

    Pros

    great people, great teams, good environment. awesome place to get your career started and gain experience in the industry but long term, 5+ years, you should plan for other places.

    Cons

    very high traffic area, you need to get there 30 min before or else the entire area turns in to a parkinglot with all the other 30 companys in the area letting their 9-5'ers go. due to the low turn over rate in management, promotions are very seldom.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make changes that will have greater impact internally to make employees feel recognized rather than just a few good words about their hard work.

    Pros

    The team and family culture is what makes this place a good company to work for if it is your first job. They train you and give you the resources to be successful.

    Cons

    The pay is not very good. it is below industry standards. They are not a great company for career advancement as most people who move up are very close to management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on increasing pay and give people the opportunity to advance.

    Pros

    Great company. Lots of exposure and a lot of opportunity!

    Cons

    I hear of other companies that truly reward their people for doing their jobs and more so. It seems often times here, once you start really doing well, they change something so you aren't paid as much and aren't as successful, to make you work harder for less...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wish management had better visions towards rewarding hard working employees and wanting their employees happy and excited to come to work.

    They are not very consistent with payment ranges. They usually wait untill the last minute to offer a better salary when it is already too late!
