Toxic Environment, Terrible People and Pay
Content Writer (Ancien employé) – Mississauga – 1 mai 2019
Toxic, exploitative work environment.
Staff members are pressured to work sixty, seventy hour weeks for pathetic pay due to the extraordinary incompetence of the management.
Staff members are constantly verbally harassed and abused. Members of management seem to take pride in this.
Staff are hired through various front companies to reduce the department's liability.
Staff are pressured to work "optional" Saturdays for "self-development." However, it's made clear that these days are in fact mandatory. Google this- t's been in the news.
Staff remain in the office overnight on a semi-regular basis to complete projects due, again, to the extraordinary dysfunction of the department and the overwhelming incompetence of the management.
Naturally, the turnover rate is comically high. A minority of the department remain beyond the three month mark, and those who do stay for lack of alternative, adding to the total chaos.
You will learn absolutely nothing in this department, as the actual work done by junior staff is totally menial. For the "creative" department, you will spend most of your time producing content for an utterly pointless internal "exhibition." It is impossible to explain how pointless this is.
Members of staff eat terrible takeaway at around nine o'clock in the evening, several nights a week, leading to some of the most dismal scenes I've ever witnessed. It's somewhat funny but in the most depressing way imaginable. The conversation will at least allow you to hone skills of dissociation.
Literally everything, but most of all the pathetic managers and middle managers.
