Management (Former Employee), Toronto – November 28, 2014
Pros: great learning experience for change management!
Cons: short lived leadership, management and functional roles with so many changes to transform the business.
Fastest moving company I ever worked for.... good and bad. The industry is changing, this company is knee deep transforming itself, adjusting to the market and many are affected or given opportunities by the change management activities.
Only the strong will survive and a great learning experience for those who can keep up with the pace. No shortage – more... of great ideas from passionate people with forward thinking, support from the business for new ventures but at the end of the day expectations are high to succeed and follow through & ROI are key as it is a business with fiscal responsibilities.
For those who are complaining, welcome to the reality check that was long over due. The days of a sleeping giant, that could coast and sit back are over. Employees must be solution oriented and not just good at meeting over committed deadlines.
This is the place if you like solving true business challenges, transforming legacy environments, delicately balancing cultural differences and delivering new offerings all at the same time. Its not for everyone, but if there was a place for learned lessons from the "school of hard knocks" this would be it. – less

Media Representative (Former Employee), Saint Leonard, Quebec – May 2, 2014
Pros: salary + working with people
Cons: taking large commission by some else.
A typical day at work would be to retain portfolio of accounts to ensure target objectives, are met on a well balance 4 day process. While developing a close relationships with multiple customers within accounts, and create new leads to maintain active release of newspaper, for the following week. The knowledge I gained there was being proactive, with – more... my co-workers and customers. Most of my customers after I left they took there business elsewhere.
The hardest part was leaving my customers and co-works, and management, I had no chose on the matter because the company was going for a restructure, and since I was the last one in, that forced me to be the 1st one out, within my group.
The most enjoyable part of my job was working with a multi-pule amount of customers, and traveling time. – less
In Toronto... nobody good stops in the job... very bad management
Art Director (Former Employee), Toronto – April 28, 2014
Cons: bad managers, everybody complains, too many rude people, terrible hr
You can work 9-5 but super hard - with no stops for even to go to the washroom. Management is very bad... does not care about the employees and they have a very old mentality (the style that still thinks that they are too superior to even talk to your employee... if manager). It was one of the worse places I have ever worked. Nobody cares about others. – more... Nobody has fun. Nobody is happy there. Do not work for them if you have experience and if you care about others. Terrible HR people in the digital side. – less

Digital operations coordinator (Current Employee), Montreal, quebec – February 16, 2014
Pros: free fruit every week
Cons: unproductive and inconsistent management
I worked in 3 different offices for this company. Every office, every department has a different way of working. My first experience was with weblocal.ca. The atmosphere was exciting and fulfilling. Our group was young and ready to learn and help each other and grow with our strengths. We were a close-knit group and celebrated every milestone together. – more... I was very proud of the company I represented and woke up every single morning looking forward to going into work.
My second experience was within the newspaper group. It was a more slow pace environment. My coworkers were an older generation and a bit more skeptical about the internet and the future. Getting the work done was quite the challenge, but having everybody's support was rewarding.
My third experience was in an office of over 300 employees. My desk is in an area with 100 people and we all have to be quiet. Its a total different atmosphere! Everybody does their work and thats it.
Overall, this company gives you that sense of being a family. The relationship you have with your co-workers always go a bit beyond work. Everybody cares about you and that is always very appreciated! – less
