Service Coordinator (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 15 January 2019
The job itself is fun and challenging. It lets you learn all the aspects of the sign industry and is driven on customer satisfaction.
Workplace culture is very laid back and easy going but employees are always on edge due to decisions made by upper management. It is a very "toxic" environment to work in due to the gossip and drama that happens between employees and management has yet to address these issues. Employees don't feel as if upper management is really about the people and creating enjoyable work environment.
Upper management is not well received due to broken promises and decisions made that ultimately do not benefit the company as a whole as we have seen time and time again.
Salaries and not very competitive and below average for all positions in the industry, employees are under paid.
Being able to create friendships that last was the best part of the job along with creating healthy relationships with contractors and installers.
Very Weak Senior Leadership - All the Good Ones Are Gone
Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 13 January 2019
Pattison is a very politically charged environment and management largely keeps the front line workers in the dark about strategy. The president is reluctant to change and has unfortunately surrounded himself with yes men who are more concerned about being right and keeping their own jobs than really helping focus on the customer and employees. They have been through several large layoffs the past two years as their costs are very high making them uncompetitive to smaller and less bloated competitors. While integrity is talked about a lot and even in the mission statement, in real life it is anything but. Senior management has pushed some high quality out who were trying to make the company better. Micromanagement is also a real problem. You can work on a great solution for months, but when trying to roll it out will be overruled and managed to a path that is stuck in the past.
