    I have been working at Canadian Tire full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Positive, family-like culture -Great work-life balance -Lots of opportunities to move around between a wide range of functions -Increasingly progressive (leadership development programs, dress for your day, work-from-home once a week prior to COVID) -Inaugural Triangle Learning Academy program provides continued employee learning and development through speaker sessions, workshops, and access to online courseware

    Cons

    -Total compensation can be lower at times -Hierarchical/bureaucratic + relationship-oriented culture can make it difficult to get things done without title or internal connections -Can be difficult to move up at times as there are no designated career progressions (you have to push your own agenda for a promotion or new role) -If you're working on the Canadian Tire Retail business it can be challenging at times working within a dealer business network as stores hold a lot of independence and collective decision-making power
