    Good company to work for but not very stable job.

    Good potential to learn, but has management issues

    Materials and Processes Engineer (Current Employee) Montreal, QC

    ProsIntegrated team environment helps employees to interact between various functions and learn a lot more. Benefits are good compared to the local marketplace. Good work-life balance.

    ConsLack of fairness in management. Dedicated and delivering employees are not appreciated unless you're "friend" with the management. Lots of office politics which is frustrating at times. Difficult to grow even if the performance is beyond expectations. There is always an excuse when it comes to promotion. HR is working for managers only.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe fair to your employees and appreciate and nurture the good work of those who are dedicated.
