Management (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 7 December 2017
Organization has gone through huge change in past 5 years but this is a very sluggish company it seems to take forever to implement change and change management discipline is really lacking. There are certain leaders that are ruining the culture and these leaders are being rewarded for bad behaviour by progressively being promoted - hopefully the senior executive team realizes the impact of their promotion decisions? These leaders are only focused on self promotion and are terrible people leaders. They spend too much time managing up rather than mentoring and coaching team. They create an environment of fear and the turnover is a sign of bad leadership. There are a number of promotions that have taken place over the past 2 - 3 that everyone just scratches their heads and wonders why these people are getting promoted because they definitely do not exhibit the corporate core values.
This could be a great place to work at but the bad apples are creating a terrible culture and not a pleasant place to work at.

Job Work/Life Balance
Great People to Work with
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.
