    I worked at Broadsign full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I got to work from home and was paid on time

    Cons

    This is the worst experience I’ve had working for a company in my 7 years of UX. During the interview process, I was misled about what to expect once hired (in regards to how far along the ux team was and the importance of ux). When I started at the company there was no plan for me, the onboarding was awful. When I was hired there was another ux designer hired a week before me who left after a month. That person was back filled shortly after and the new designer also left a month later. I didn’t have anything to do for my first 2 months. Overall I found the product team doesn’t have clear direction or goals they are working towards (which is why I didn't have anything to do for 2 months). Broadsign is the opposite of a product lead company. All features and work are dictated by clients who sponsor that work. Because of this model, the work has to be done ASAP and as requested which doesn’t leave much room for user research. You aren't enabled to dig deep into the problems but rather take it at face value. My job title may have been ‘UX Designer’ but I didn’t do any ux work, I was essentially told what to put where and just created the designs based on those requirements (they should maybe consider only hiring junior visual designers). There were three people on the UX team but there isn’t a ‘team’ feeling or any collaboration. I also found there was a lack of respect. One example of this: The PO I worked with changed my mockups and sent them to a client without talking to me, I only found out because I was cc’d on the client email. I spoke with the PO and told them all design changes should to go through me (I had time to do them even if needed the same day). That PO did it again 3 days later without a heads up or any explanation. This wasn’t an issue for anyone else, there were no consequences or apology (in fact this was ok’d by head of product). I struggled from day 1 until the last day at this company and left feeling unimportant and just overall not great. I have a lot of experience and do really great work when allowed the opportunity but you aren’t able to do that here and definitely aren’t given an opportunity to grow. I think all the issues I saw came from poor leadership. Leadership that doesn’t trust those ‘below’ them.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback. We are always looking for ways to improve. We understand that it was a challenging time to join the UX team, as the team was new, and we had just gone through 2 acquisitions at the same time. The task of merging 3 company platforms into 1 is not an easy one, and we understand that this may have presented you with some hard challenges along the way. Ultimately, we are sorry that Broadsign and yourself just did not seem to be a good match in the end.

    Hi there, We're very sorry to hear that you're disappointed in our treatment of employees. One of Broadsign's top priorities as a company is to maintain a corporate culture where employees feel empowered in their work - and have fun doing it too! This is why we have a very active social committee where all employees are encouraged to come up with fun activities for everyone to part take in; summer BBQ's, Sugar Shack day, Health week, Diversity week, Christmas Party, etc. We also take employee engagement very seriously as well. We make it a top priority to take action, as best we can, in areas where employees feel we could be doing better; revising our benefits plan, adding new perks every year, etc. We really do our best to make it so that employees do not feel like "numbers", but rather part of a larger family; our CEO even makes a point of going around and meeting all new hires every time he is in town! In fact, we are proud to say that, for these reasons and many more, we have been selected as one of Montreal's Top Employers for 2020. While we appreciate your feedback, we do hope that you can recognize our efforts in trying to make Broadsign a great place to work!

    Pros

    The team is incredibly supportive. Everyone is willing to take the time and answer your questions, and help you out with whatever you may need. The culture at the company is lightning captured in a bottle, and is definitely one of their biggest strengths. The company recently acquired two companies and the integration has been super smooth which is a testament to the teams work ethic and collaborative abilities. Lots of fun company events - BBQs, lunches, 5a7s. The company (executives and all) really look after their employees.

    Cons

    Can't think of any right now.
