    Advice to Management

    Invest in the employees in your company (salary and promotions). Stop the favouritism and treat people based on their work ethic.

    Thanks for your candid feedback. We try our best but, yeah, we don’t have all the answers. If you’re game, please reach out to me or Rob. We’d love to brainstorm on how to make things better. Gordon McMillan

    I have been working at McMillan full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Great culture and working dynamic between all departments - Truly a work hard, play hard environment with the growth potential - McMillan make a real effort to invest in your personal and career growth (conferences, training, etc.) - Strongly promote a work/life balance but overtime is often needed

    Cons

    - Entry-mid level salaries are not very competitive compared to industry standard and it is difficult to secure promotions - High turnover - Limited creative opportunities

    Advice to Management

    - Invest in the talented employees you have and ensure they feel valued. - Continue to grow business that fits the agency instead of just taking on new business specifically for the revenue.

    Cons

    Work life balance is a challenge due to inconsistent workload and tight timelines Projects can tend be dull and repetitive (B2B / software tech) Salary for certain roles can be below industry standard

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the transparency of sharing business goals and vision - its very motivating and encouraging. Consider offering a consistent work from home day per week or flex hours to help with work life balance Explore other 'best place to work' companies to see what benefits/perks they offer and consider bringing them to Mcmillan such as fitness memebership, top up for mat leaves, parking pass etc.
