    Pros

    Many options for career development and lots of encouragement to experience more. Great work life balance and flexibility.

    Cons

    Only downside is keeping up. With a growing company things can move quickly and keeping up with all the changes can take time. Too much communication done via email.

    Advice to Management

    Keep supporting and encouraging employees to look career opportunities across the organization.

    Pros

    Very kind people work here for the most part. Reasonable hours. Easy to access location for people living in the east part of the city.

    Cons

    Workload can be demanding. Chronically understaffed. Career opportunities are limited. Wages appear to be below the industry standard.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time nurturing employees instead of looking at the bottom line. There's so much brain drain here because people don't believe in the long-term career growth that Morneau Shepell can offer.

    Pros

    Great team culture, very client focused, privilege to work with many very smart, capable and motivated people. Great growth opportunities for those with intelligence, very high drive, and a desire to learn.

    Cons

    Company does not compensate at the middle or high end of market rates for most roles. Expect to work very long hours and to have more and more work sent your way, with minimal salary increases to match. Technology development focused on client-facing tools but minimal investment in internal tools/ processes. Sometimes feels like we are constantly chasing after growth and not paying enough attention to serving our existing book of business effectively and efficiently.

    Advice to Management

    If you want your internal processes to be more efficient, you need to be willing to invest in systems and tools, even if there isn't client revenue associated.

    Leadership has laid out an exciting vision for the future. It's a very honest culture with great people and lots of advancement opportunity if you want it.

    Keep pushing employees to manage their own careers.
