    Cons

    1. Compensation - Low to Average range compensation. However, if you are great in your job you may get raise and promotion quite fast (1-2 years). 2. Extra Hours - Many salaried employees need to put in extra hours to cover up for open/vacant positions. No overtime payment for salaried employees. 3. Employee Shortage- There is always shortage of employee because of location. Sometimes one person is doing 2 people job...

    Advice to Management

    1. Change the vision from "We believe all people should be empowered." to "We believe all people should feel empowered." The difference in "be" and "feel" is huge. It requires less judgement from our side, and asking question to the people for empowering them. 2. Move to Toronto area.

    Cons

    It is a growing company which means some decisions aren't necessarily right and made too quickly without thinking things through. Also things that impact employees directly sometimes take longer to change like giving more vacation weeks etc.

    Advice to Management

    You've made great improvements in last few years. Continue to listening to your employees and what's most important to them.

    Pros

    Offers benefits Pays more than minimum wage 40 hrs/week 3rd party training cost reimbursements Great co-workers

    Cons

    Will hire on with a contract position for a specific role, but then request that you do things outside of your job description. Constant pressure to write Glassdoor reviews. Only allowed 3 sick days before you are considered a risk and they start building a case against you. Lack of "on job" training for various positions. Management is not held accountable for their poor actions that affect the entire department....

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiding things from some employees, but telling others - they're going to find out either way. Stop making employees worry about their job by saying "don't worry, your job isn't at risk" over and over Stop making comments about the weight of employees and telling them they need to make healthier life decisions Stop making people feel bad for using GOVERNMENT ISSUED sick days Start taking action on HR...
