Analyst (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 23 March 2019
Northbridge has a great vision and and strives towards that vision. The work is interesting and robust. I was exposed to many faucets of the business and learned a great deal along the way. The Executive team seems honest and they communicate well. One is skeptical if the concerns of the employees make their way to the Executive team. Great work life balance and most departments provide flexible hours or participate in work form home initiatives. The hardest part of the job is the inconsistency in the company values, as employees feel there is an in-congruence between what is said and what is done. When Northbridge is willing to have open, honest dialogue with its employees within all departments about their challenges (as not all departments have this challenge), Northbridge will reach its full potential when their employees feel they are being heard. Many employees feel powerless and they are not afforded open dialogues with their supervisors to address these issues. Many seem to operate in a "Survival mode". The most enjoyable part of the job are your colleagues, they will become some of your closest friends.
