Aquisition expansion with layoffs. Vultures mentality.
Graphics Department (Former Employee) –  GTA Toronto14 December 2017
This company has a historic well documented
take over of smaller companies followed by massive layoffs. They care about increasing profit margin by
aggressive take over tactics that excludes employee
security or future. Be prepared for phony job reviews
revolving door strategies from existing middle managers
and a culture of protectionism. Communication and transparency are non existent employees are frequently let go without cause. Jobs are labeled redundant so they can justify letting people go .....and a few days later re hire for the same position for less money or to move a full time position to part time and avoid paying benefits.
There are additionally managers from other locations who are moved when their own branches are closed to arbitrarily take a position from another unsuspecting employee in a surviving branch ....it's all so medieval
and draconian in it's approach. My honest appraisal is that you should not work for this company it is in decline.
Pros
Hard to say
Cons
Review covered most but not all of the drawbacks.
