    I worked at Workopolis full-time

    Pros

    Great working environment, everyone was super friendly. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Little room for real advancement in spite of what managers and directors advised. The company is shrinking and streamlining a lot so that leaves little to no room for advancement opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Needs to get some vision - Workopolis used to be number one in the digital recruitment but for the last few years, they weren't able to stay ahead of the competition. Now they are way behind in everything it seems.

    I worked at Workopolis full-time

    Pros

    Great people. I worked with some of the smartest, most talented people at Workopolis. I will say that they have an ability to source out the best.

    Great benefits and vacation time.

    Cons

    If your priority is learning and career growth, this isn't the right place for you. If you are talented, smart and fit into the culture (a highly extroverted culture), you'll be encouraged to work hard and fast by having opportunities dangled in front of you, but in my experience and in many others, that opportunity will rarely materialize.

    But if you're looking for a job as opposed to a career; if you want a good benefit package; if job security isn't a concern of yours; if you want to work and eventually get packaged out to take a long vacation or explore new opportunities, than Workopolis might just be a good fit. Seriously.

    Advice to Management

    Be clear and honest. Workopolis is a shrinking company with limited opportunity for growth, and that's OKAY!
