    Pros

    I have worked at Canada Drives for 3 years and I have been given the opportunity for growth and success since day 1. The growth in this company over the last 3 years has been tremendous. Management truly believes in staff that work hard, and those that work hard are always rewarded. It starts from the top, the CEO Mike Galpin has given me all the tools I need to succeed in this company, he fully supports everyone,...

    I have been working at Canada Drives full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - If you work hard Canada Drives will reward you with advancement, better pay, and their loyalty - Seriously, I have never worked at a company that was so willing to invest in my success. - I love the stocked kitchen - free breakfast and lunch everyday of the week saves me loads of money - Fun team events where we go out for dinner, karaoke etc - Incredibly fast growing company in downtown Vancouver - Its got that...

    Cons

    - Incredibly fast growing can mean growing pains - We've run out of office space before and had to scramble to get desks for staff - Every department plays their own music really loudly - this can be cool cause the office is bumping - but sometimes it can also be very loud

    Advice to Management

    None really. Management has always worked hard to make this an inclusive and enjoyable place for me to work.

    I have been working at Canada Drives full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I've been with the company for north of two and a half years now, so I've seen a lot of the internal development of the company at most steps of the way for its rapid growth portion of its life so far. As such, I've had the chance to rapidly develop skills along the way with the company, along with skills/experience with things I never would've gotten to touch at a non-startup. The company has huge room for the professional...

    Cons

    "Back in the day" there was a long list of cons (the pros always had more merit though) that I could've rattled off, but they were just the product of the company being a start up. You reap what you sow. But things are substantially different now from when I started. There's still a few things like absent policies on random topics, but they're being fleshed out as fast as they can be; or a lot of things being in flux...

      Normal growing pains from a company that moves from being a start-up to an established company in the rapid growth stage.

      Advice to Management

      Continue to focus on navigating the current hyper-growth stage with a vision that everyone can share and strive towards. Work on merging the best parts of a start-up culture with the stability and strength of a large corporation.
