TYPICAL DAY: Typical day consists of avoidable and unnecessary chaos.

CULTURE:
If you're looking for a place that is out of whack, the Toronto office is it!

With headquarters in NY, USA they operate by American norms. You have 10+ years' experience? Too bad. You still only get 14 days for vacation. Flex days? What are those? Compensation for - more ... OT?!?! Part of the project takes more time or money in the initial stages? That's okay. They'll just have the juniors slave away on the remainder of the project.

Leadership initially consisted of a golden boy who was great in sales but knew no ... - less
ProsMeeting vendors and other people in the industry. Networking is great, allowing one to move on to a more functional place.
ConsAbuse of booze, resulting in inappropriate behaviour.
