    Real industry experts. Everyone is so knowledgable & experienced.

    Pros

    Laid back and positive culture - full of laughs. Understanding management and a great salary with room for expansion.

    This place really cares, unlike corporate HR red-tape nonsense.

    Cons

    None - I mean it.

    Pros

    You're surrounded by smart people and that rubs off on you and lots to learn from them
    Relaxed culture with no formal dress code
    Access to all major industry tools for research
    Pod structure where you are put in the pod to work in based on your strengths and areas of interest
    Management always makes out time to hear your thoughts and ideas
    Weekly meetings to keep you up to date on other departments as well
    Weekly company lunches and other fun stuff like outings, potlucks. Always something fun happening.

    Cons

    No major con. This may be a con for some : there's always a lot of work to do and it seems never ending but it is a benefit in disguise as it has allowed me to learn so much in such little time. I couldn't think of working at companies where everything is relaxed. I like to be on the go and busy at all times.

    I have been working at Powered By Search full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This company has offered me the best employment experience ever! I knew very little about SEO/SEM when I started working with Powered by Search, but they took time to teach me through various training methods. I started as a Novice and was able to work my way to a Project Management position in just over a year, thanks to the guidance and excellent training program they offer. I work in a contract position from my home office, which makes it extremely easy to balance single parenthood. This company offers tremendous room for growth within the company, which is great because no one wants to stand still in their career. The company also offers many other performance, knowledge benefits such as cash bonuses, gift certificates and a monthly blogging contest with $1000 bonus, who wouldn't love any of these rewards. They also conduct reviews and offer excellent raises with good performance. Their policies and expectations are equal across the board no matter the position you work in. The partners are very flexible with time-off requests if requested with the appropriate notification. They also love friend referrals when they are hiring.

    Cons

    This company does not offer any kind of group insurance for employees or home contractors.

    Advice to Management

    Have you considered looking into a group health insurance plan for your employees/contractors? This would be a great additional incentive to offer to full-time employees, even if the employer pays 40% and the employee pays 60%.

    I have been working at Powered By Search full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Partners Matt, Dev and Warren set the tone for the company: a passion for being digitally effective, and bringing together some of Canada's top talent.

    There's a real mix of hard work, technical prowess, creative energy, and a lot of laughs. There are parents, students, an inspiring office, a work-from-home balance. There are years of experience, and newbies with talent.

    Cons

    We're expanding, and we're looking for the right people...
