-generous base pay.
-6% short term incentive plan annual bonus (based on individual and company performance - note: this is a company that has gone into bankruptcy protection twice in the last 10 years).
-poor benefits and pension (flex healthcare spending account and RRSP).
-horrible workplace culture - many people are very negative and damaged by the company's troubled history. Gossipy, unwelcoming, team meetings always cancelled, very protective about basic information, very demanding management.
-not open to change - will say they are, but then you will hear a lot of "this is how we have always done it" (again, a company that has gone into bankruptcy protection twice...).
-poor orientation and on-boarding - did not have basics like email, computer, phone, etc. for weeks to a month after starting. Orientation was boring and not useful. No colleagues to assist with learning the ropes as most are all new and drowning in work.
-too much work, not enough resources.
-lack basic systems, processes, policies, and information.
-was not conducive to work-life balance.
-retention issues - revolving door of employees who probably experienced the same things.
I absolutely would not recommend this employer to anyone based on my experience.
base pay was generous, that is about all...
long hours, supporting two locations 1 hour distance from each other, poor onboarding and orientation, very negative, unwelcoming and unsupportive workplace culture
