    I have been working at Action Media full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    -Emphasis on learning, collaboration, perseverance... these aren't just throwaway things every company blabs on about. We actually embody these in all we do here. -Education programs (conference opportunities, Kindle loaning program, e-course budgets, demo days, lunch and learns) You will build your skills here. -Amazing coworkers -- HR is a bit picky about who they hire, and the smartest, friendliest, most collaborative and supportive people work here. We all push each other to do our best. -Flextime, private in-office yoga every Wednesday, free breakfasts, snacks, and catered team lunches, games room, metro pass subsidy, like there are so many things. -Metro is attached to the office building (better commute!)

    Cons

    I guess I drank the Kool Aid, I really can't think of anything to put in a review, haha. Fully realise this sounds too good to be true, I promise it's not. Love my job.

    I worked at Action Media full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This is a great company to work for. It has great benefits, great people, a great boss, and a great work-life balance. Everything good about the benefits and the company culture can be already be found here mentioned on Glassdoor.

    Cons

    Your morals will be tested. You will have to make peace with what they do and once you understand how they really make their money you will need to either cope with it so you can continue doing your job well or leave. You can't be working here while not agreeing with what they do, this will only bring you trouble and anxiety.

    -Flexitime hours -Free breakfast - Free Coffee and Tea - 3 weeks vacation (including Xmas holidays) -Monthly free lunch - Quarterly group activities - 3-4 Parties a year - Game room with Nintendo Switch and ping pong table - 1 hour lunches - Half day Fridays - Downtown office right over Peel metro - The coolest people and management - Great insurance package and benefits - Quarterly Bonuses - Competitive salaries When I told my old man about my job and these benefits .. he told me if it was his job he would be singing to work every day. He’s right , I am very grateful for everything this company offers and I appreciate every day I’m there. There’s not a dull day at Action Media!

    Cons

    - by Friday there are no more avocados or bananas left in the kitchen - in the afternoon all the bathroom stalls are taken so I have to go on another floor to use the toilet - in the winter , can’t decide whether to wear my winter jacket for the 5 second walk to the metro

    Pros

    some cool partys and downtown office

    Cons

    beware, you will put your everything into the company and without any notice or headsup, they will fire you without any valid reason. They use and abuse employees and even hired back an employee who was fired for selling something iilegal (wont get into specific). the buisness is also built on extremely shady products.... be sure to ask what the buisness exactly does before working here, dont be fooled. your morals will be put to the test!
