    I worked at ivari full-time

    Pros

    Located on the subway line so the location is good if you live in Toronto.
    Culture is a little uptight and not my cup of tea.

    Cons

    Company is downsizing and struggling financially.
    Not much room for growth in many departments.
    They'll screw you around with a severance package if they let you go.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful because you're driving the business into the ground and your Shareholders want to see some dividends.

    Pros

    This is a small company so there is a coziness to working here. A lot of employees have been around for decades and HR encourages internal growth and career development. People are conscientious, diligent and accessible, and the employee base is incredibly diverse and respectful.

    Cons

    There aren't a lot of young employees, so there aren't as many company-wide social events.
