Does Walker Group have a pension plan?

Pros

I work for Walker Group since 2012 and for me, it's the best place to work ever because they have a family minding first, their support for us is awesome and this company is well structured. I like working when i know clearly what i have to do and their support for us is amazing.

Cons

Maybe should be have more support in French language because Quebec province is an expansion. We don't have any pension fund, maybe later in futur :)

Does Walker Group have any mentoring programs?

Pros

Your colleagues are incredibly friendly. The fact this is a family enterprise influences how the company feels; it feels like a big family right down to Christmas parties in the founder's home. The company is small enough so you can make a huge impact if you want it. The group is comprised of multiple sub-companies who all collaborate but who also have a diverse portfolio of products - that means there's always opportunities to learn something new. The company is stable - we've been going since 1968 so we're here to stay. Some of the sub-companies have been around since the start and some are brand new, so you get the stability that comes with long-term success plus the experience and mentorship from folk who've been succeeding at this for a long time. You also get the entrepreneurial spirit that comes with some of the newer sub-companies working like start-ups with a 'skunk-works' mentality. We have Oscar, the office dog. The Vancouver office is right on the beach and we're 'beach casual'. There's a roof terrace with a bar, a BBQ, an organic vegetable garden and ping pong table.

Cons

If you're reading this then you're probably not already here :o(

Advice to Management

Keep reminding everyone about the cool things that are going on here. Sometime you forget to shout about our achievements. Don't underestimate the importance of regularly speaking to the whole room...doesn't need to be formal; just stand up on a chair and shout! Communicate broadly... don't be afraid of overloading people with information. And expect even more... people stay here for a long time because we enjoy working with you guys...don't be afraid to motivate us a littler harder sometime. More summer rooftop events. please!
