    I have been working at The Standard full-time (more than an year)


    Immense opportunities for growth, an affordable and solid benefits package inclusive of health and dental insurance and transit subsidies, time and opportunities to volunteer within the community, pay scale is well within the market range, many extra perks such as classes, resource groups, and activities for professional growth, support and networking. When I was looking for a new job, and got hired on at The Standard I can solidly say from my research and experience that The Standards pay and benefits are very much in line with, and even a bit better than the majority of what is out there.


    Nothing from the company itself is negative in my book. There are the challenges you can encounter in any workplace that relate more to the dynamics of team work, cohesion, professional communications, etc. that come down to individual behavior and approach rather than company policy and procedure.
