      Pros

      Projects and clients are top. Colleagues with great talent, some of the best.

      Cons

      A real boys club where only guys make it to the top . Strong culture of pushing others to gain visibility and credit. Most of the successful ones play a low political game, with a few exceptions thankfully.

      Pros

      Great culture, great people, great word, the CDs are fantastic. Love working with them.

      Cons

      Some of the exec team have overstayed their usefulness and it shows - adding more to the chaos than to any great work or culture.

      Pros

      I honestly have to be available 24/7, no question asked, had to cancel plans many time lat minute. They pay us for an amount of hours but we work way more then this. They sales “well-being day” but you can’t even take them because everything is always a rush.

      Cons

      No balance, extra hours and weekends hours are not billable (and you can’t bank for vacation)

      One of the worst job experiences

      Aug 5, 2021 - Finance in Montreal, QC
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      It's cool company that does good job for its clients

      Cons

      Finance department only: Micro management, unpaid over time, extremely stressful and negative environment, all day long useless inefficient meetings, bad behaviour and attitude. You are expected to do the job with no coaching or learning process. You get asked every day what you are doing even at management position. Very bad management, high turnover, very disorganized. Just don't work in the Finance department.
