Supportive & collaborative team and responsive management
Customer Care (Current Employee) –  Collingwood, ON31 October 2017
Very down-to-earth family run company. Not too top heavy (I've worked for another company of similar size where executive team was overbearing - not the case here). Exceptionally approachable, responsive, and caring president. A general feeling of cooperation among most of the staff. It's busy, but the weight is fairly equally spread across all full time staff, so there's a good sense of camaraderie. Other benefits include Kindness in Action Days (you get paid to volunteer at a charity of your choice on a typical work day, as long as you volunteer another day during a weekend or day off on your own time), Health & Wellness Dollars (a generous amount each year to spend on gym membership, fitness/sports equipment, or other health products/services), good benefits & RRSP matching program, personal days that are paid out if not used by the end of the calendar year (great incentive), and almost a full week off between Christmas and New Years.
Pros
Good benefits, employee perks, lovely group of people to work with
Cons
8.5 hour office work day as standard, work volumes can be high

Terrible Company
Worker (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON8 June 2017
In the past few years, this company has gone through a revolving door of leaders. They pride themselves on their culture but it is only a fa├žade in reality. Employee morale is at an ultimate low with many employees looking for opportunities elsewhere. The company's mentality is to put up roadblocks to any suggested change, no matter its size or significance. They want everything to stay the same as it was in the year 2000. There is a serious lack of interest in advancing technology or implementing any sort of efficiencies. Passionate and engaged employees are not appreciated, recognized or rewarded. On the contrary, they are discouraged from bringing forth any new ideas.
It's a sad situation to watch a company with so much potential drive itself into the ground. But if anyone speaks up, it is not long before that employee is shown the door.

Don't expect to have any bonuses or pay increases - they do not exist.
Pros
Some nice people to work with. Everyone comes at 8 am and leaves promptly by 5 pm.
Cons
Terrible leadership, Results of employee surveys even indicate this, Senior executives refuse to acknowledge the problem.
