    Pros

    A great learning experience in dysfunctional companies.

    Cons

    Management has no idea what they're doing more than half the time. Employees are given the tools to fail yet blamed for everything. Lots of finger pointing going on at this place. Margin for error is tremendous due to the amount of manual work that is required. Salaries are pitiful, given the Manhattan location. Free overtime is expected and you are guilt-tripped if you don't comply. Constant disasters and damage control going on. Priorities shift by the minute. The upper management is predominantly male. The women are definitely low-balled, in terms of salary and treated like administrative assistants.

    Advice to Management

    Read some books on leadership. Stop being greedy and taking on additional business that the company isn't ready for yet. Get some systems in place that work. Treating your employees like failures or idiots for making a mistake doesn't promote growth. It stunts it. Stop expecting people to work past 5pm. Respect a work-life balance. Pay your employees a salary that is pertinent to NYC cost of living.

    Pros

    -Offers competitive compensation and benefits
    -Stunning offices in the heart of downtown Montreal
    -Good financial standing

    Cons

    -Poor management
    -High turnover
    -No communication
    -No work-life balance
    -No one is happy; very demotivating, depressing environment
    -No regular feedback

    Advice to Management

    Take employee concerns into account; there is a reason there is so much turnover, especially in the HR department.
    Very little promotion from within, even when it's well deserved.
    Initiatives are started but never followed through.
    Yes, you compensate your people well, but at what cost? You continue to lose strong employees and soon, given your reputation within the Montreal job maker, it will be tough to keep replacing them
