    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Mattamy Homes full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people that have all left or are currently looking to leave The head office is located close to Union Station in the heart of downtown - lots of great places to go after work (food and drinks)

    Cons

    The culture in the Toronto office is pretty non-existent, I don't think I've met someone at Mattamy who would tell you that they have a good culture. They eliminated their entire training and development team because they don't care about employees' learning & development and didn't want people to take time off work to invest in their development. Their philosophy is that if you want to learn and develop, then you should probably go work elsewhere. Benefits and perks (ie vacation, subsidies) are extremely outdated and almost every other employer offers something better than what is offered here. No work/life integration or balance. You are treated like a number and people are so worried about losing their jobs that they often are pitted against one another. There are members of the HR department (both junior and senior) that are extremely corrupt and some of their behaviours and attitudes are embarrassing. Employees are resigning from all over the org without other opportunities lined up because it is that bad. The recruitment team often asks employees to write positive reviews so while you are considering an employer, pay attention to positive reviews written by former employees, not current. I expect a positive review will shortly follow this one. Mattamy wasn't always like this, it was much better when I joined but they brought in some awful senior leaders that destroyed the culture and I don't expect that there will be improvements any time soon. I'd avoid this place like the plague.
