Great Staff; Terrible Management!

I'm giving 2 stars instead of 1 because you'll never meet a group of staff members that are as fun and friendly as the writers and marketing team at this company. However, there is serious leadership incompetency in all management staff at Mentor Works.

Management hides under a veil of generosity with the odd free lunch, snacks in the kitchen, and "allowing" out-of-work activities. In reality, they have exclusive meetings, demand unreasonable timelines, discourage vacation, discourage salary discussions, and don't pay for overtime work; this is all while preaching they care about work/life balance.


They consistently value the bottom line over employee retention and happiness. The sales team is disproportionately paid through overzealous commissions, while other departments are severely underpaid for doing the work. There are benefits, but they are very limited and don't last long if you have a family.


The company refuses to hire an HR department and it really struggles with staff valuation as a result. There is an incredibly high turnover rate at this company due to a very serious blame culture that persists.


I can't recommend working here until an 1) an HR department is hired, 2) salary hierarchies are revisited, and 3) A new Operations Manager is hired - the existing one is better suited for a non-leadership role.

Smaller boutique consulting firm - opportunities for involvement in a lot of interesting projects and initiatives with other companies, different levels of government, and clients. Great experience in for learning & development.

The team is collaborative and punches above their weight in terms of the marketplace. Its a relatively flat organization because of its size - 20 people. Work is in government funding, so there are 3-4 crunch deadlines a year that sometimes results in some evening work for a few days, but lieu time is offered and there are quieter periods where you can take it.


Always been happy with my salary and benefits, as well as vacation time. New office, good team activities, great Christmas party every year.


Beyond the great staff, I have had access to strong mentors to develop my skill sets and grow in my role. If you like seeing the impact of your work and want to be recognized for it, this is a great place to work.
Points positifs
Impactful work - see how you impact the company and others, great team.
Points négatifs
Small business, for some that is a con.

I harbor no ill will for anyone at Mentor Works. They are a hard working team that tries very hard to help you grow as an individual, providing numerous opportunities to grow and learn while in the position. Unfortunately Covid-19 had unforeseen consequences. As a result they laid me off in hopes of surviving the lock down. It was the right call.
