    I have been working at Online Business Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    * Strong sense of values
    * Lots of effort put into the culture
    * Caring and supportive team members
    * Opportunities to contribute and get involved in many different ways
    * Leadership makes effort to communicate and be open to feedback
    * Great perks like regular team meetings in a pub, summer BBQs, social events like holiday parties and golf tournaments
    * Good benefits - new RRSP match plan
    * Professional development budget is great - able to go over budget when it makes sense

    Cons

    Nothing to speak of! There's not a perfect company out there, and I believe Online does more than most to engage with Onliners.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to Onliners and looking for ways to continuously improve.
