    Cons

    Lots of changes happened in the last few months, you would have to be nimble enough and open to new ideas. The good thing is that the company truly cares about its people, and is always inclined to optimize systems and processes to help everyone keep up with the updates.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! Set a vision and be committed. The future is certainly bright for Powered by Search.

    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

    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.

    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...

    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%.

    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...
