I love my boss, she is great, provides me with lots of opportunities to learn new things and grow. Very flexible and provides with freedom to perform your duties your way and be creative. I love the company and the owners are very respectful with all employees. Wonderful place to work and grow.
The workplace environment is open and fun. As an agency company, the workplace was catered in the sense that employees are interactive and collaborative. This helps as it improve the communication and social skills of every employees.

Office always had social gatherings such as pizza and beer Fridays or ice cream for birthdays. Everyone was very social. Management was not the best as directors didn't communicate much or very well with lower level employees.
Great office culture
Lack of communication
During the CNE I worked here and it always gave you the opportunity to work long hours and make good money, so it was good. However I don't believe SDI does anything with the CNE anymore so this is kind of irrelevant.
Lots of Hours
Tired from all the hours
Typical Day at Work: -Socializing with customers -Obtaining information pertaining to product What You Learned: -Information pertaining to Product -Skills regarding socialization Management: -Easy Going and Supportive of Staff -Difficult to get a hold of Workplace Culture: -By yourself/self reliant
incentives, high pay
I got a great experience in sales and marketing field that will definitely help me in my future career. I learned how to understand what people want and satisfy their needs. Very supportive and helpful management.
Very unethical company.all they teach you is to mislead and missell credit cards to customers to attain sales goals Lot of pay issues with poor payroll systems which the CEO Roy does not care. I believe the banks like PC financial , MBNA and others need to think twice before doing business with these guys.bcoz all these guys are doing is leaving a bitter taste in everyone's mouth I would advise any job seeker to never look for employment in this organization.
Pay issues, uethical business practises
This company is great because they do a wide variety of events for their clients. The company enjoys a lot of fun activities to develop and maintain the culture at work.
Many cool events and free food.
No promotions and salary increases are tough to get
A typical work day started at around 10am but I arrived at 9:30am to set up my station. We spent a solid 5 to 6 hours a day promote the alumni MasterCard from TD bank to students and visitors of the University of Toronto bookstore. I learned what is important when in charge of a promotional campaign and what it means to be presentable. My manager helped me fine-tune everything in terms of appeal and standards held by the company. My co-workers and I were in a competitive environment that was intimidating at first but later on became more of a personal development kind of atmosphere. We supported each other and helped each other reach better sales targets. The hardest part of my job was the initial phases when i would try to approach potential customers and subsequently be completely ignored due to lack of interest. It made me grow in confidence and self-acceptance as I got used to it. The most enjoyable part of the job was the team dynamic and learning how to market the Alumni MasterCard to different people for their unique needs and walks of life. Bonuses for meeting targets helped too.
Working with motivated individuals who helped me achieve more than I thought I could.
Facing rejection daily, not being guaranteed to meet sales targets, lack of advancement opportunities.
If you are a recent graduate and want to get your foot in the door, SDI is the place for you. The corporate office has the look and feel of a student campus. The work load can be overwhelming and the deadlines are tight but it teaches you a lot. My co-workers were friendly and helpful, but I cant say the same about upper management, they demand results without providing any direction. The job is overall a lot of fun with social events and beer Fridays, the only awkward part is when someone gets fired, and that happens quite frequently.
Great to get started in the marketing world
Mediocre pay, no bonuses and not a corporate environment at all.
Great place for sales people. Salary+commission+earning potential. You have to stand 8 hours on your feet. Cold calling and extensive prospecting involved. Good commission system.
