To describe what this company is about I may use words like Train wreck, havoc, mayhem etc. Cuz thats what it is.

Reckless management did not know what to do with this company kept on playing around with what could have been a potential success into a disaster.


HR in this company are the biggest joke. They dont do anything other than firing people. And they do it mercilessly.


It is common for Senior management to curse people in public. They all get high using their competitor's products after coming to office I guess. Cuz their products wont work.


Run away from this company. Its drowning and it is only matter of when it will go bankrupt.

A company full of dirty politics, wasteful, generous to their favorites and extremely incompetent management from HR, Engineering, Production, Operations, Inventory, Finance, Business Development and the list goes on. Favoritism is rampant (promotion with title of manager or senior manager at minimum after a few months), yet poor pay and no reward to good employees, but excellent compensation to incompetent Managers, VPs, BOD and CEO; all have no oversight but talk big in meetings but no solid record of accomplishments. Long useless meeting and relying on knowledgeable, hardworking employees to do the work for them.

I worked for this company for over a year. I saw them grow from a small start up organization to a larger international corporation with US subsidiaries and acquisitions. During this term, the company made a lot of bad decisions starting from build out of their warehouse Mississauga facility, to their additional smaller office spaces and the Headquarters near Pearson airport. Overspending and not meeting financial projections is a constant epidemic that plagues TerrAscend. The company has too many chiefs and no one who actually knows what's going on. They will certainly sink soon. No positive ascending for TerrAscend.

Lots of opportunity to grow and take on large amounts of responsibility in a short amount of time. Great opportunity to interact with management and learn about the Cannabis industry.

Potential for greatness here, if the culture was focused on the quality of the product, the training of staff and proper implementation of SOP's.

How can you follow what you cant understand?

Not enjoyable, much pressure and very high paced...just another goat. A lot of favoritism between management and coworker friends. Working there is like being in a lock down.

What a load of garbage coming out of the management there. This company couldn't hold onto a good employee even if they actually cared too. Any talking back, or input of your opinion gets you restructured out. Dante forgot to mention that there are actually 10 levels of heck...

Turn over is huge , so job security is very good it would seem until they run out of money .

Life balance seems good , weekends off . Also easy to sneak out of work early . Best day to do this is payday .


Advancement can be easy if you can identify the most incompetent manager and suck up to them , at the very least it can help avoid being cannon fodder.for the pass buck culture .

Overall company intentions are good, however management has no respect for personal life balances. Absolutely no sense of organization and management expect employees to be available at all times. A lot of pushiness towards running overtime. A lot of management and people in the offices don't know much about Cannabis and its original culture, not much career growth for someone who starts at the bottom even if they know from seed to sale. A lot of favouritism in the workplace and not much understanding between management and employees. Scheduling for employees is unreliable. Although if someone applied for a certain shift their schedule would be changing into other shifts and management has 0 respect for the change in lives they do with the timing of employees shifts without asking them. If you're looking for growth and stability with time and money, this isn't a place to put your efforts in, they tend to play with money & time with employees.

Left a great job to work for this amazing company on the edge of greatness. Two weeks in I knew I had made a huge mistake but I do not give up and I am trying to make it work. Backstabbing, pettiness, lies, while ignoring the fact that many around me are stoned. Corporate wants you to believe in the fun, innovative culture but once you are past the front lobby we are all lemmings. No one is happy, we are all holding on by the skin of our teeth for the next share payout.

They are stoned, it is accepted and it is unnerving.

If you're looking for a challenge, then challenges are what you'll find.

Management shows more interest in hitting milestones and making big splashes ($$$) than actually running a smooth manufacturing operation. Little attention is paid to product quality, organizational planning is weak, communication is poor in all directions, and inter-department drama is frequent. The result is an overall culture rooted in recklessness, disdain for procedure, and a lack of consideration for workers.


A general lack of respect for work-life balance can also be expected. Last-minute scheduling changes are frequent, and being pressured into staying late without warning is a common occurrence. There have been numerous instances of workers being shamed and bullied for booking time off, and little respect is given to home life (an example of this being the pervasive expectation for workers to take work-related calls outside of office hours).


Little care is given to career advancement, with some of the longest tenured, hardest working employees getting nothing in return for their service. Showing initiative and working longer hours does not get rewarded, and is instead viewed as an invitation for further exploitation.


As for upsides, health and dental coverage is quite comprehensive, and there is a general sense of camaraderie among the lower-tier workers over the shared hardship. Beyond that, I would struggle to find any other positives to note about the company.


Unless management is willing to take a hard look in the mirror and make some serious structural changes, they'll find

A typical day at work would include having your daily plan changed based on a multitude of poorly managed issues and events. The lunch room would be divided based on which group you belonged to. Witness executives arguing with managers.

I learned that a companies culture is defined from the top down


Management used high school politics and was unable to provide anyone with proper direction


Workplace culture was the worst I can imagine a work place being, without trying to sound unprofessional, it was as close to Game of Thrones as real life can get. Scheming and backstabbing seemed to be encouraged.


The hardest part of the job was feeling the culture of the building suck the passion from within me


The most enjoyable part was being in contact with the plants every day, however it got to the point where not even that was enough to keep me sane
Pros
None
Cons
lack of respect from management, worst communication ever

The company has an extremely high turnover because of the little value they place on the workers in the back. The staff that does the most work get paid the least. Those who work hard get taken advantage of. Accommodations were near impossible to obtain... I would write more to warn you about this company but I’ve already wasted too much time on it.
Pros
Some of the workers in the back are genuinely good people.
Cons
Worst HR, Deceitful Management, Low Pay, much much more.

This company does not care for their employees. The HR does not take any actions for workplace bullying. There is bullying and miscommunication/no communication all over the company and especially in the Quality department. The Quality director is the worst ever person to work with. The quality director works like a ruler. Nobody can say a word against the employees that the Quality Director likes. Only people who are liked by the Quality Director get appreciated for their work; no matter if another employee is more hardworking or deserving. This is not a place to suggest new ideas or to expect to get appreciated for your work. This is a place where you will be yelled at, bullied and disrespected. You will be sent into meetings for which you have no background or information. The Quality Department will never be strong with the current Quality Director. Everything is going to be back dated and pending in the current situation. All the very best if you are planning to even go near this company.
Pros
None
Cons
Bullying, Disrespecting Managers and Staff, Unorganized, Low Salary

Found the job to be highly unexciting, and the management was inexperienced to say the least. The wages sucked considering the company is making millions. Dreaded coming into work to be honest.
Documented & informed HR of incidents and they are quite scared to come down on their equals. utterly useless, making 40-50G's a year and all they do is sit at their desk and do nothing to protect front line employees. all of the upper management is protected, especially those from "old regime". everyone has multiple faces and even more knives to drive into your spine. Forget advancement goals, expect to work on garbage plants in a poisoned environment..
Pros
Nothing

If you can read from a script and can be a puppet then you are working for the right place. Your not part of the culture if you know more then the manager. Anyone who knows anything about cannabis can run this company.

Sexism, racism, HR doesn't do anything for you. Temporary foreign workers are taken advantage of because they won't hire Canadians. The pay is terrible for the work they ask of you. Stock options are dangled in front of you but you will be fired for looking at someone wrong. Managers are unqualified and don't even understand the culture. If you don't drink the Kool Aid you will be shunned. If you bring up issues you will be fired. There is a divide between the office and greenhouse. The office staff are snobby towards the greenhouse staff, the people making sure the plants are healthy so they get paid... It's honestly a joke of a company. They can't even keep materials on site to do the work needed.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Snakes in the grass

slave labour. Save your talent and taste buds. Far too many eastern cooks in this kitchen who couldn't grow their way out of a dime bag. 5 stars written by company puppets (of which there are many).
