Large Company with many opportunities for advancement at uncompetitive salaries
Associate Merchant (Current Employee), Brampton, ON – April 17, 2012
Pros: internal career development opportunities
Cons: uncompetitive compensation
This company has a lot of opportunities for advancement internally and is a great company to start with for non-experienced personnel. The company however, is not competitive once colleagues progress to a more experienced level. A 10% salary cap is imposed on all role changes making the company progressively less competitive as candidates move higher – more... in the ranks. Essentially the company actually prices itself out of employee retention. – less
