    Pros

    Genuine focus on great product and happy customers. Best I have seen. Great people. Positive team attitude. Good work-life balance. Career and personal growth opportunities - internationally

    Cons

    Some growing pains - but these are minimal relative to the direction and speed we are travelling. The cons are also minimal relative to the many pros. Finally - any cons are being addressed professionally - so it is only a matter of time before they will disappear.

    "Great products, great company"

    5.0
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I have been working at Workplace Systems full-time

    Pros

    There's nothing better than working in an environment where everyone believes in the products that we have created. Everyone at Workplace is constantly striving for further innovation and ways to make the products we sell better for our current and prospective customers. Additionally, Workplace employees enjoy flexibility and a good work-life balance.

    Cons

    There is space for improvement on some of the additional work benefits but, I believe, this is something which is being looked at and there have been improvements in the last few months, i.e. flexibile benefits portal, Cycle to Work schemes etc.

    I'm glad you've cited our appetite for innovation: the key thing is it that thanks to your spirit, it comes from the whole crew not top down from management. I'd agree we have room to develop the additional benefits: please discuss your suggestions with Angela, Claire and the EEG. Calire is publishing more of these every month. Thanks! - David

    I have been working at Workplace Systems

    Pros

    It has taken me entirely too long to write this review, mainly because I have too many good things to say: Workplace is an incredible place to work. The company culture is absolutely top-notch. While being top-notch includes the employee benefits related to helping us all maintain work/life balance (great holiday/PTO entitlements, paid healthcare, sponsored get-togethers, flexible policies on working from home, etc.), the company culture mainly revolves around a set of Principles that permeate the way business is conducted, both internally among employees and externally with customers. Coworkers are smart, capable, thoughtful and diverse. The product has massive value for our customers, including everyone from the business leaders, to the hourly associate; it’s exciting to be working for a company that provides a solution that affects every part of a business in a positive way. There is confidence in leadership, but a flat structure in terms of hierarchy, so you can have candid conversations with leadership, even in other departments, and everyone is expected to “paddle on” and support each other when needed. This means taking on new roles from time to time. Everyone eats lunch together during the day, which fosters communication and empathy across departments that might be more segregated at other companies. It's truly a unique place.

    Cons

    So here we go: the office needs to be bigger....From what I hear, our dental plan could use some improvements. Right now there’s a chasm between a legacy product, and the product of the future...(see advice section) You know when you mention your dental plan as a con, there really aren't any of significance.

    There really are no cons.

    Pros

    Great Directors and Managers in the business who are open to new ideas but importantly an open door policy. Its a great friendly happy environment to work in which is great compared to how it used to be before. They do care about you individually as person which is important - you are not just a number. You are made to feel valued. The work / life balance is fantastic and as long as you enjoy working hard you will enjoy it here. Massive changes in the business which are all positive and were very much needed CEO is great - not many around like him!!!

    Cons

    No clear path of a Career strategy in place to see where you can develop and move into Salary could be better - especially when looking at some similar positions in the industry

    Pros

    Company under new management with good leadership and a strong vision. Though the pressure and workload has increased in the past 12 months, Workplace is certainly and an exciting and enjoyable place to be working. Pay is good but not great, but they make up for it with fairly flexible working which allows you to have a good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Training opportunities aren't that great.
