Pros: dog friendly, ample clothing allowance and provides yoga class
Cons: not professional, judged on weight, appearance/looks, society status
I took pride in working for a Canadian, Vancouver born company when I first started. But quickly saw that Aritzia is:
- discriminatory (against weight, looks and status)
- poorly managed
- preys on those with low self-esteem
- questionable business practices
- no compassion for charity or community – more... causes
- incredibly high turnover
I have witnessed threatening language in upper management meetings and a show of public embarrassment time and time again. Many professionals have left as they felt morally and ethically conflicted.
As an emerging leader in this company, I have stayed to try and change this culture and coach those around me. But after 5 years, I feel this is a losing battle.
