Just like any company this place has a wonderful work environment and supportive management. You have to be on your game if you want to move up. Bring your best foot forward and you'll progress.

I cannot speak more highly of the organization. I am constantly challenged and given opportunities to grow and develop as an employee. The people are amazing, and I am lucky to have a leader who supports and encourages me.

It is a smaller company and that comes with it's positives and negatives, but I absolutely love the company and it's mission.
Pros
Amazing people and leadership.
Cons
Has it's limitations due to size.

Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Terrible management and toxic culture

Knowledge First Financial has a terrific backbone and management staff. They are very supportive in work and personal life. The upside is you get to work around your schedule. The downside is you work for commission.
Pros
Work from home
Cons
Work for commission

Great place to work , but salary is too low to survive in Toronto, atleast for contract employees. Work culture is good and I enjoy working here, wish there were permanent positions and a better salary.

One will come across a lot of biased behaviours from seniors and management. They do not value quality of work neither do they value hardworking people. They only know how to reward useless people with whom they have a good connection in the office. MERIT BASED REWARDS ARE A MYTH HERE!

Not sure how I feel about this place. Worked as an Operations Associate there for a while. The environment is friendly but there were problems with the supervisors and QA in my area. There did seem to be different treatment between some employees and some supervisors. The operations supervisorveli for my area definitely had favourites and teachers pets. He treated others who weren't his favourites quite poorly. I have never encountered this sort of treatment anywhere else, in any of my previous jobs. It was poor. It was jerky behaviour on his part, and poor of the higher ups to overlook this. QA team for my area were hit and miss. The lady who trained us, also worked as QA and she had a rotten attitude towards me. The HR girl was two faced and insincere and unprofessional. Other than that there were activities like pizza day, and breakfast pancake day, and cakes to celebrate different activities.
Pros
Fun activities like pizza and cake
Cons
Stressful and micromanaged a lot

Started in Customer Operations and was able to learn new skills. There was a lot of examples of other employees working their way up and the company itself was expanding.

This company is filled with great people who make up a great company culture. There are always activities planned whether that be for Halloween or just a pizza day to show employee appreciation. It is a great place to work.

Very high turnover company riddled by technological problems.

Many employees are somewhat bitter because instead of fixing issues many of them get unsolved with a preference toward workarounds.

This is a good company with a good product. However the pay is completely on commission so you need to be an extremely good salesperson, and possibly resort to "sales" tactics. A lot of travel required as well.
Pros
Good management, good staff, good product
Cons
Extensive travel, independent work, commission only
