    Morning fellow canados. My portfolio is pretty real estate-heavy and so I foresee quite a bit of resistance in findinb work in a run-of-the-mill creative agency once I arrive at Pearson in six months. Can the people of the Great North spare a few names with a focus on the property market that I can get my foot in?

      Pros

      Good variety of work with plenty of responsibility. Workload is very manageable. Hybrid approach to WFH is being implemented post covid.

      Cons

      Due to size of company information can be hard to find. Workload can sometimes be too light leaving at a lose end some days, which would be difficult in office environment.

      Pros

      Nice people in my team, flexible working hours, excellent benefits.

      Cons

      Terrible culture created by senior management team who rarely interact with those who are customer facing. Operations driven, not customer focused. Unachievable targets. Obvious favouritism, career progression only for those whos’ face fits. Do not value lower level staff. Glorified call centre culture with a high turn over of staff.. Ive seen many loyal people in this company pushed to a point where they no longer care,
