      Pros

      Overall a great place to work, great environment, fun people, and interesting work.

      For technology it's unambitious, mediocre slow erosion of talent and skills

      Pros

      Aspires to operate a global organization and occasionally lives up to that aspiration Wide range of technologies and internal cultures across the organization so it can be interesting to cross pollinate

      Cons

      Strategically and operationally plays as safe as any of the large consulting firms minus the technical bench strength The global focus is as often as not a cover for shipping work to cheaper locales no matter the impact on delivery or quality Embarrassing lack of desire for even the most incremental improvement in process or operational approach

      Pros

      New management has really brought the Canadian offices back to life. No more hierarchy and egos. Great place to work with peers. Introduced flexible hours, which helps to balance personal life. No crazy overtime required

      Cons

      New managment team, they are still adapting Raises are hard to get Starting to regret I left...

      Pros

      Junior and intermediate coworkers are relatively "young" in the 25-40 range. Work-life balance is best; most except for senior types don't stay past 5pm Generally pleasant coworkers. People are respectful of each other's roles. Opportunities to climb in client services and creative roles, but not tech. Beautiful glass windowed office and comfy designer furniture. Dog friendly office, a foozeball table and bagels and coffee in the kitchen. Beer on Friday afternoons if that's your kind of thing. Most managers are not micromanage-y. Work from home or taking medical appointments is possible with permission from supervisors

      Cons

      A very lean revolving door agency. Junior-intermediate work is repetitive, whilst senior level people are extremely overwhelmed by last minute client requests, thus no mentorship. Long stretches without core spots like HR or QA filled. More of a waterfall-style (not agile) place. Little to no feedback on performance. Most managers are disorganized and often overpromise deliverables. Over-reliance on hiring freelancers to do sudden influxes of work or tanking projects No raises or bonus plan.

      Pros

      There was a decent culture, although extremely quiet. That's about it. A few nice people in the Toronto office. This can be a good or bad thing but everyone leaves at 5pm. On the dot.

      Cons

      The Montreal office is completely disconnected from the Toronto base. Everyone in Montreal is very passive aggressive, does not respect the Toronto office at all. Not sure if this is a cultural thing or if they just feel like they are better. Never did any interesting work... clients are all quite annoying to work for and they have 0 idea how to manage productions beyond web stuff, and even that is all over inflated. Constantly ripped off clients for dev work.

      Pros

      People are awesome. Life long friends. Other than that nothing else is really a pro about mirum. The office is nice.

      Cons

      The work sucks. Underpaid like crazy. No interesting or challenging work because mirum doesn't get clients like that. Management is non existent. Projects are run terribly and people are not as qualified as they pretend to be. Because of this important information is not passed on and projects become a crap show. Not much learning happening at mirum. Working with people in Toronto and Montreal is a nightmare. Terrible communication between the offices. Good job for adding 1 year experience to your resume, then get out.

      Pros

      - Some really great people working there - many of the departments were done by 5 pm most days

      Cons

      - Very unsupportive in terms of new hires learning the ropes - High turnover, at least in my department - Management was in Montreal (I was there when it was Twist Image and had just recently been bought by JWT) and seemed very out of touch with the Toronto office on most things

      Pros

      Good people and benefits, decent client base that can look good in your portfolio and resume

      Cons

      Management and mentorship is almost non-existent which hinders career growth, most of the projects are mediocre for some offices, compensation is slightly below standards. Expect to work more than 40 hours a week without getting paid overtime.
