Terrible
Former Admin Assistant (Former Employee) –  Ontario19 November 2018
Worked here for 9 years. The pay started off good, and then the raised stopped altogether. Management/supervisors act like superior beings and dump work on you even if you are super busy. And the seemingly random firings were absurd. Overtime is unspoken, but mandatory if you don’t want to get in trouble. Sooo glad I quit.
Pros
Literally none
Cons
Low pay, below average benefits, random firings

Lots of support for assistants here and was a good place to work. I worked here while I lived in Quebec, I liked the fast pace of the job and the management.

A company that doesn't yet have their values straight
Legal Assistant (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC10 November 2017
Training is chaotic 90% of the time - pressure to do everything perfectly with guidance that is sometimes unclear and incomplete.
Poorly value their employees. Work culture is poor - it is somewhat tribal and hard to feel welcome as a new employee. They do not seem to care about their employees - only about getting the results out of them.
Pros
generous vacation time
Cons
poor training
