      Great if you’re a self-starter

      Pros

      From the top of the organization to the bottom, Info-tech epitomizes the meaning of culture driven. Yeah the workload can be heavy sometimes but it’s nothing you wouldn’t expect from a job like this. If you’re a self starter you’ll dominate here. It’s generally the people with misplaced expectations that have a negative experience.

      Cons

      There were some people I didn’t see eye to eye with. They soured what otherwise would have been a fantastic experience. That said, it was no fault of the company.

      Overall, One of the Good Ones

      Pros

      If you dream it, then they will help you get there. Great company with growth on their minds and very open to succession planning. Colleagues are smart, helpful, kind, and fun. It's very rare you are met with "I'm too busy for this" or "ask someone else to do it". At my previous job, the opinions and ideas of the employees were completely ignored. Here, the leadership might not agree with you, but they are happy to listen. We have great social activities and many opportunities to bond with one another both inside and outside of the office.

      Cons

      The only major discrepancy I see between the company’s and its actions are where risk is concerned. It's like pulling teeth to get a major overhaul accomplished because management seems to consistently agree on the fact that something needs to change, but they can never agree on exactly what or how the change needs to happen.

      Staff are motivated and intelligent

      Pros

      Culture is the best thing about this company. People push one another to do better but in a friendly way. Very friendly group of folks, motivated and intelligent. Thankfully management isn’t too overbearing. Sometimes they micromanage the new guys but once you’ve earned your stripes they back off and let you work on your own. At the end of the day it’s all about fitting in with the culture.

      Cons

      Management needs to give new employees more leeway.

      Worst place I've worked!

      May 19, 2021 - Sales Representative in Toronto, ON

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Lots of pros if you're a favorite reps. If you aren't, be prepared for hourly drillings about outreach and talk time.

      Cons

      - Favoritism (Example - you could be crapping the bed in sales but they'll drive out and put a banner around you because you're a company favorite, while other reps who've sold more get threatened with lay offs). Clique - If they like you, you'll get a jazzy knickname and be publicly patted on the back 24-7; if they don't like you, you'll be lucky if they remember your actual name. You'll feel like a drone. Coaching - Management are really good at reading Salesforce dashboards. Commission - I've heard it exists. I never saw it, nor did anyone in my training class. Motivation - Management are really good at reading Salesforce dashboards. Leads - The good ones go to favorite reps to keep the illusion they're superstars. The bad ones go to you. Support When You Fail - Management are really good at reading Salesforce dashboards. Culture - Very drink oriented. Feeling Depressed - Clearly you didn't have enough outreach, read the Salesforce dashboards properly or follow the ABCs. Bottom line - Go work at McDonald's before stepping into this dumpster fire of a business. You'll make the same amount of money and you'll also get a 50% discount on burgers, shakes and fries.

      Pros

      A good company with a strong and focused work culture. If you’re interested in thriving in an exciting and competitive environment where management are firm but respectful and your co-workers are super supportive, you’ve found the right place. Info-Tech Research is hands down the best job I’ve ever had.

      Cons

      They should pay more attention to employee feedback. Some improvements in this department but they could always do better.

      ZERO: Beware the shills, protect yourself and your career. Stay away!

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Work with brainwashed shills drinking the kool-aid, telling you it's the best place in Ontario, nay the entire country, to work at. Read more reviews, ask about strategy (lulz) and their gaslighting techniques. Do a few minutes of research. There may be good people left behind, but it's more like a hostage situation. Blink twice if you need help!

      Cons

      Shills, sycophants and charlatans. Those are the first 3 types of people you'll get to meet and work with. Enjoy your career in telemarketing.

      The good and the bad

      Jun 18, 2021 - Account Director in Toronto, ON
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Lots of money to be made, although most start with a pitifully low base. Commissions are uncapped. The HR Division, McLean & Co, is easily the best place in the company to work, with the strongest divisional leader and a very supportive environment. It's not a perfect environment, but you'll find many really nice people and great teams.

      Cons

      Tendency to micromanage - every call is logged, every email is logged. It has a very call centre vibe in the way people are managed. The HR Division is subjected to business changes that align to the parent company, but they often don't actually work well, as the businesses are quite different. Turnover is high in all areas, which impacts the way the work gets done.
