    Pros

    No pressure
    Job for life if you don't rock the boat

    Cons

    Weak and uninspiring Australian Leadership team. CEO and MDs in Australia lost with no plan or ability to turn the business around. Staff just go through the motions as that is what they do. Company now led by finance compliance checklists and processes rather than by customer needs.

    Advice to Management

    Take control back from CFO and regain the spirit that formally made the company great.

    Pros

    fun place to work. Good people and great attitude. But, I hear things have started going down

    Cons

    not much clarity on where the company wants to go (grow).... depends too much on individuals to drive the growth with out clear direction from the management.

    Advice to Management

    provide clear goals -- coach, mentor and compensate employees for their efforts.

    Pros

    Very friendly environment with good policies that are placed into play for employees. The work is completed as a team with individual tasks that each team member should be responsible for. The types of projects vary from a diverse range of marketing products and ideas for differing companies.

    Cons

    Working hours are not stable with little room for moving up, to gain a salary that complies with ones' educational background. The establishment is not well kept (i.e. dirty, dusty, recirculated air through uncleaned ventilation system), desks are placed in an isolated fashion from fellow coworkers as well. Management, with managerial skills, lacks tremendously in the *Montreal coding department as well with supervisors who deal with coders from outside of the Quebec Province on a daily basis (Winnipeg).In short there are issues with communicating projects ( i.e. work specifications), unclear assigned tasks to coders from their supervisors and proper training environments. With this being said, there is a limited amount for motivation.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together and higher qualified managers or offer courses to certify such positions.
