    Pros

    Location, good teams, summer hours, fair benefits

    Cons

    While the modern Canadian standard workweek lies somewhere between 35 and 37.5 hours per week why are we in the stone age at 40 - more vacation will provide your employees with a better work life balance and less sick time.
