Very Weak Senior Leadership - All the Good Ones Are Gone
Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON13 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.
Pros
Strong owner, still some great people
Cons
They are running off the best people.

Free yet creative
Gaphic Artist (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB4 April 2015
- A typical day at work : getting jobs from manager and do the artwork/graphic according to client's request or following the template

- What you learned : I learned a lot about sign business. the attitude for work and how fit in with co-workers

- Management : in general, it's a good management

- Your co-workers: they are very nice and very helpful

- The hardest part of the job : for me, it's to be very careful for the detail/input that you put on the descriptions.

- The most enjoyable part of the job : to work with very happy, warm-hearted co-worker, and they are very helpful.

This is a stable and family oriented company.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON5 May 2014
Overall, this is a good company to work for. There are many happy employees who have worked there for over 20+ years and retire from there.
Pros
This company has maintained the traditions that many Canadian companies have stopped, such as summer hours, Christmas bonuses, and Christmas closures.
Cons
The company is small; therefore, advancement is limited.
