    I have been working at Red Academy part-time

    Pros

    Red is a unique place, it is bustling with creative ideas, enthusiasm, and talented people. If you are looking to experience what Toronto's gig economy is all about, this is for you. The culture is all about getting-it-done and having fun while at it. There is no shortage of social events and talks to inspire your thinking and motivate you to do/try new things.

    Cons

    Lack of structure and support when it comes to resolving organizational challenges. Lack of training for new employees and "Sink or swim" mentality

    Advice to Management

    - Create standardized training for new hires - Actively promote rules of conduct & clearly defined values - Improve compensation to retain quality staff

      Advice to Management

      I would think about giving more monetary recognition for the hard work your employees are putting in every day.

        I worked at Red Academy

        Pros

        Value and experience of the education they offered was very impressive

        Cons

        I found their administration of students, schedules, information dissemination, and certain promises lacking slightly.

        Advice to Management

        Make it more clear whether you're a school or a business.
