      Pros

      Very friendly people $50 per month mobile allowance Good health insurance plan including dental

      Cons

      Strange hierarchy in all teams. Seems like management hired a bunch of incompetent people and now has to micro manage everyone - the good ones and the bad. Essentially 2-3 people call all the shots. Very fast deadlines, brief at 11am deliver by 4pm.

      Don't get it twisted - Zeno Group is a PR Agency

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      They have a nice roster of clients, and CEO, Barby, is unique, talented, and accessible.

      Cons

      Despite what Zeno messages, they are still a PR agency. Work/life balance is nill. They run through talent like toilet paper. Barby's senior leadership team is a mixed bag of talent and duds. Their "talent" management function is really weak. The organization has been growing, and they are not fully equipped for change. A lof ot the senior management are long-time agency or Zeno folks, and do not really have perspective or a desire to gain perspective outside of the organization. Their Diversity, Equity and Inclusion campaign and efforts are quite fake, and in an effort to increase talent of color, they tokenize folks.

      Great Company Culture, Always encouraging an equal work-life balance, Plenty of room for growth

      Pros

      Zeno Canada has a fantastic company culture, and have consistently made an effort to look out for their staffs mental health throughout the pandemic by thoroughly encouraging a healthy work-life balance. The CEO has sent heartfelt inspiring emails globally every week which truly shows their dedication to their people. Lots of room for growth, new opportunities and up skilling particularly as the Canada office grows.

      Cons

      Do not have much commentary to make here. The office is continuing to grow so despite some areas seeming challenging, it is only going up from here.
