Great place but undergoing some financial issues right now

Great work life balance but is currently going through some financial crises which has meant constant lays offs and downsizing. Hoping their financial situation is corrected soon as they are a fun and fair employer that compensates well.
Half day Fridays through out the year
Going through some financial uncertainity currently; many lay offs
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 12 July 2018
This company is tolerating lazy people and being lazy is the canadian way of life. Don't work for this company because you'll just be a number whether you're in the office or just a plain laborer. They don't care and management don't have the foresight and the fortitude to know what's happening as long as they get their paycheck only. The lead hand's job is a big joke, too as his job description includes youtubing and laughing all day and management is happy about it.
Forecasting Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 10 March 2018
Very much a sales first every other department is setup to support sales kind of attitude. This resulted in inefficiencies across the company, every department should have its own objectives even though it challenges objectives of sales at the end of the day these differences ensure corporate objectives are met.
I was employed by Mattel to work at Mega Brands. Mega Brands has an awesome pop-culture-people who thrive about design, toys, and games. I felt very good among them and would really go back if the opportunity arises.
