Job Culture
Fun to the point of detriment
Marketing (Current Employee), Toronto, ONNovember 19, 2014
Pros: location, fun, work/life balance
Cons: not innovative, deceitful management, poor benefits, too much focus on "culture"
Fun place to work, but advancement is based on nepotism or how much your personality fits with the culture - regardless of performance.

This leads to less focus on getting things done and more focus on social events.

The culture, while pleasant to work in for the most part, does not produce open thought or innovation. The company has drastically fallen behind competitors.

Salaries have been frozen, but this has been spun as a policy change and not a sign of hard times. Being honest about hard times doesn't fit with the "culture", so employees are fed misinformation as if they were idiots.

An Unorganized Organization
Advertisement, Clerical and administrative duties (Current Employee), Toronto, ONDecember 8, 2013
Pros: 1 hour lunches, monthly bonuses (depending on your department)
Cons: unpaid overtime, unstructured operations, sloppy data management, sloppy staffing for each department, no work-life balance, no stability, supporting an inferior website.
This company has alot of room for emprovement. There's no room for advancement and the company has done mass layoffs each November since 2011 to current year (2013)

Advertised as a fun place to work
Account Manager, Business Development (Former Employee), King St. W./BathurstMay 6, 2013
Pros: transportation allowance that counteracted paying for benefits
Cons: no job security; paid for benefits out of salary
Prospecting, maintaing and closing business

I learned how vile salespeople can be.

Management wasn't informed of what upper management knew

Workopolis was the convergence of great minds and talent.

The morale was very low due to unexpected mass layoffs.

The most enjoyable part of the job was being paid for your efforts. Very rewarding compensation plan.

Bilingual Accounts Receivable Coordinator (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJuly 5, 2012
Pros: great team spirit, great people, halloween was awesome!!!!
Cons: downtown location made for a long day when traveling to and from durham!!!
It was a great place to work for the short time I was there. Three of us were brought in to do a year end clean up of the receivables. Our colleagues were fantastic to us and treated us like old friends, but the management decided to do their own clean up of sorts and unfortunately they decided that we were no longer needed on New Years Eve. Oh well, their loss is anothers gain!!!!!
