    I worked at Groupe Marcelle full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Casual dress code, people not at management level are very friendly and great fun. Amazing stepping stone to learn about the industry and best practices.

    Cons

    Terrible micro-management, directors basically do the jobs of their employees. Constant finger-pointing atmosphere where mistakes are scrutinized and held over employees' heads. The products are sub-par and the company refuses to spend resources on proper consumer testing and advertising, so the brands are not competitive in the market. Total and anal dependence on "processes" that slow everybody down. Management has a "know-it-all" attitude and is very hierarchical, you need to learn how to manipulate people in order to get what you want. HR is NOT on the employee's side, and employees have poor benefits and low salaries. No opportunity to move up or grow

    Pros

    Great Canadian company, product made in-house to top quality at reasonable prices. Fairly well known throughout the country. Vehicle supplied, expenses paid (albeit usually late) and sampling to key account people generous.

    Cons

    Communication from head office was somewhat lacking at times. Too much janitorial work to be done at store level because partnerships were not honored by retailers. Expectations always increasing and wages did not match. Great if you are a "yes" man person. Fiasco with Revenue Canada that generated with a head office employee but cost sales reps dearly. And no responsibility taken for the error.
