      Pros

      At best it is a job that will give you a pay cheque.

      Cons

      People are tired and grumpy. Zero respect environment. "lucky to have a job" sentiment is strong. Lousy benefits. Arrogance is deep at the top.

      Outdated salaries, overworked

      Pros

      If your team is solid, your experience can be much better. I learned a lot from my supervisors and added multiple skills to my resume. The original publisher at the Vancouver office was a powerhouse, a real role model for business and work ethic, and cared deeply about the entire team. Our office was small and tight-knit, very friendly and supportive. We had a lot of flexibility around working onsite or remotely, booking medical appointments, life stuff etc, as long as the work was done well and on schedule.

      Cons

      Salaries had been frozen for over a decade. When people left, they often weren't replaced - workload just increased for everyone else. Everything was always on a shoestring budget. CEO of the company had to sign everything and approve even the most junior hire personally - if he was away or busy, things did not get done for weeks. When half my office was laid off in 2019 (just a couple months before SJC announced it acquired Rogers Media!) the staff who weren't let go had to complete the same amount of work as before with little or no additional support. New publisher assigned to the office often behaved like a bully. Without proper management, team dynamics deteriorated. Entire Vancouver office was laid off first temporarily then permanently due to Covid.

      Pros

      they give you a zeppoli once a year

      Cons

      1. They "temporarily" cut pay by 10% starting January 2021, 9 months after the pandemic started saying it will help recoup losses. They are basically making their employees pay for their loss of business and profits. They should be embarrassed. In 2020 we we're forced to take unpaid days and forced to use vacation days if we had them. 2. very low salaries 3. no performance review despite being promised in our contracts 4. no raises ever 5. no room for growth 6. zero training 7. clear nepotism 8. you must guess your way through your job 9. unclear communication about job expectations 10. bad management (they must pay or be on the board of Canada's Best Managed Companies, because somehow they make the list every year)
