Typical and Learned; Opportunities were available if you were willing to give that little bit more. Many employees were there for over 20 years and enjoyed there co workers, company functions and the environment as a whole
Management; Worked with you to build your career path, gave you space to grow and accepted criticism with solutions to build better relationships
Cultural; Our CEO new most of our names and our job functions and made a point of chatting when your paths would cross. The organization practices philanthropy and worked with many charities, medical professionals and educational institutes. I collaborated to run different draws to enhance the many charities in the GTA.
Hardest part; Communicated to clients why products weren't available; i.e. raw materials, packaging components, scheduled compounding, labeling.
Enjoyable; We felt like it was our home away from home, able to speak and interact with management without the corporate ladder interfering.
