    I worked at exp Global full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Somewhat flexible hours, but is dependant upon Manager.

    Cons

    Senior leadership is focused on billable and not much else. I've seen some Managers in GTA berate staff in front of others, and the environment at the Clark Blvd. Brampton office is toxic!

    Also, they talk a good game about culture and values, but don't live up to them.

    Advice to Management

    Some senior leaders in branch offices are great, but some are terrible. You need to send senior membership to an HR bootcamp!
