How flexible is your schedule working at Tucows?

Pros

Flexible work schedule Somewhat supportive management team Liberal work from home policy Little to no stress in accomplishing the tasks

Cons

Extremely poor career advancement opportunities. Candidates are preselected for roles, and then Job postings are rolled out. Little to no appreciation when you put in the time and effort. Management has no clue how to keep high achievers happy or recognized for that matter. You will encounter negative behaviours of work avoidance, and management does nothing. Endless call volume.

Advice to Management

No one has been able to explain how yearly appraisals are conducted. Or the factors that influence the rating. Or even the most basic aspect of a performance review of what does not meet / meets / exceeds expectations are. Start there maybe?

What do employees say about the location of the Tucows office?

Pros

- Legacy domain business is extremely profitable, able to prop up more dysfunctional business units - Flexible working hours (assuming Toronto time) - Hiring is slow, expect several months buffer time

Cons

- Diversity and inclusion still a major problem, hiring a few token women in mid level roles isn't enough. The conservative libertarian CEO was paralyzed during BLM and COVID-19. - Heavy meeting culture, very difficult to find time focused time - expect long hours, regardless of office location. - Compensation is low compared to industry average, usual abuse of uni interns which is popular in GTA. - Only life'ers are trusted at the C suite level, each team has a cherry picked "trusted" ally of the CEO - super unprofessional and heavy nepotism. - Hiring and career advancement is very broken, unclear what HR actually does besides payroll and firing paperwork. - Several fiefdoms, especially on the support & technology arms - no wonder so many major projects have failed. - Tech leads against any modern technology from within the past decade, cloud computing - forget about it.
