I have been working at McMillan full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

There is no gossiping - the culture is very positive. Work culture is non-toxic - it's refreshing!

Executives are approachable, friendly, real people. They have earned people's respect.

All the employees are talented, inquisitive, and hard-working - we frequently share inspiration with each other.

Projects have well put-together teams - there is a sense of collaboration, and feedback is encouraged which makes working with people really easy.

There is a lot of participation in terms of social activities (of which there are a lot!) and the social committee works hard to make sure the events are unique and exciting.

There is free fruit in the kitchens daily and candy in all the meeting rooms - and people bring in their dogs frequently!

Cons

Non-competitive salaries, and benefits package could be greatly improved: there are only 2 weeks of vacation to start and no group RRSP matching plan that is common in other workplaces.

There is a lack of an established process for some things which can be hectic at times. They are aware and this is being worked on.

Employee reviews are frequently held late.

HR has set up the software to require an explanation for any time off booked (including personal appointments and vacations), which can be sensitive in terms of privacy.

The company can do more in terms of establishing itself as a thought leader and involving itself in the community. Use social media more frequently!

Advice to Management

HR policies should be reviewed to ensure that they make sense and are competitive. Other than that - keep it up!
