Zero opportunities to learn or grow
Client Services Representative (Former Employee) –  Toronto28 January 2019
They try to pose as a startup, innovative and young company but turns out that it is only a call center in which your primary (and only work) it's taking calls all day long and answering questions about gift card balances, how and where you use it and troubleshoot errors on card machines.
No training nor documentation on anything and management team (if there are any) don't care with you or on what you are doing, as long as you are answering your calls and logging everything in the 15 years old internal platform. Zero opportunities to learn and to grow whatsoever. I had friends there suffering for anxiety, panic attacks, new employees very often did not show up on the second day of work! There's no coffee or any other perk in the office, they offer water (hot and cold) and fruits like banana, banana and bananas. Oh, sometimes oranges and apples too!
Pros
Water

Micro management and weird quirks
Client Services Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON3 February 2018
9 hour days
Micro management - including advising employees that they are not allowed to smoke on breaks (if you smoke you wont last long)
No advancement unless you work for the day team
No Microwave
Expect to have your lunch thrown out if anyone can smell anything at all

The office is beautiful, located downtown.
There is free fruit available and they observe a scent free zone if you're allergic to smells (not just perfume they reserve the right to fire anyone who smells of anything including medicines like vics vapo rub).
Pros
free fruit, beautiful office, good location
Cons
Many

IT and services company with really low corporate culture
Program Administrator (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON28 February 2016
Teams and job duties and boundaries are not well defined, training is scarce and compensation is below market.
Nice offices and overall nice co-workers.
Excesive micro-management style and leaders think that power is exercised from impositions and rude attitude towards their subordinates.
Pros
Free fruit
Cons
Poor management, below market compensation.

lack of work life balance, unqualified management
Accounts Manager (Current Employee) –  toronto9 March 2014
I thought the money offered for the position was worth it, but after seeing a fellow employee have 3 crying break downs in 4 months I realized it wasnt worth it.
Everyone on my team was miserable and is looking for other jobs, and even willing to take a pay cut for a more positive work experience.
Upper management is very disconnected from our department.
Pros
decent pay
Cons
long hours, no recognition
