Does Article offer parental leave?

Pros

The values of Customer Obsession, Do It Differently, Winning Together, and Ownership Mindset are actually lived every day. The CEO's updates are not focused on revenue but on doing the right thing for our customers in line with our values - it's easy to connect the actions our leaders are taking with the values we have which makes decision making so much easier for everyone. All of the other seniors leaders constantly talk about the importance of focusing on our customers. Our leaders are experienced professionals who are accountable and responsible for the work they produce. We're not perfect but we can work together with trust and respect and we know our most senior leaders walk the walk when it comes to things like empowerment. Compensation is very fair and above market for the role I have and the work life balance is great. I know I'm appreciated for the work I do.

Cons

The rate of growth can make things chaotic at times because the processes we have are sometimes from a time when the company was a quarter the size it is now. You have to be willing to work with a bit of ambiguity when it comes to this. Underinvestment in the past around technology is catching up to us right now with all the growth but the company is investing massively here - potentially it's a tripling of the technology team in a single year. Benefits such as RRSP matching and parental leave could be better but I understand they're working on improving such things.

Advice to Management

Stay the course on living our values and work on scaling our processes.

How do employees feel about their professional development opportunities at Article?

Pros

There are no pros in my opinion.

Cons

If I could give this company a 0 star review I would I don’t usually write bad reviews but below is my personal experience to say that I ignored reviews is poor judgement . After training which was reading from slides for two weeks with little to no hands on experience and members of management and training professional making you feel as if ur stupid then when u determine honest communication i.e. U learn from hands on demonstration and ur told that this would be facilitated and isn't then ur subjected to oh ur not good enough cause u fail to process a request within ten seconds after two weeks of reading from slides a pure and utter disgrace of a company in all areas treatment company culture management You will be subjected to your performance shared on slack and if they plan to let you go this will be removed and manipulated to cover upper management along with false promises to help you improve and not facilitated. If your looking for a job to use you to process a back log while they recruit new hires and do the same to them then this is the place for u if ur looking for people to totally make u feel stupid and slow after one to two examples of processes then apply for anyone looking to begin a career with a company that u think will treat u right then this is not the place for you. Avoid them like the plague!!!! Only work here if you have to.
