I was attending a Social Media Mixer organized by Media Tech Commons in Toronto and the presenter Mandy Gilbert, founder and CEO of Creative Niche, was covering the topic of Digital Marketing Recruitment. She spoke a little bit about company culture and mentioned that you can have an idea what the company culture is when you walk in an office. However, walking in a fun modern office with high-end technology, free breakfast, sun deck can sometimes disguise whether employees are actually satisfies with their work environment.
