    May not provide adequate guidance/assistance to new employees, can lose sight of realistic future projections and get lost in an upturn and lose sight of financial discipline.

    Pros

    Energetic culture - People come from diverse backgrounds (consulting, HR, IT, Investment Banking, Mining Engineering) but almost all seem smart and motivated.

    Cons

    The company is somewhat stretched right now, some people have more work than they have time to tend to

    Advice to Management

    Minimize costs even during commodity bull cycles

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Decent culture depending on the department in which you work. CEO Paul Rollinson is hard working, personable and forward thinking.

    Cons

    High performance culture = No work/life balance. They get a pound of flesh for every dollar they pay you. Too much favouritism for internal advancement. Human Resources march to the beat of their own drum. Does not follow their own policies and should not be trusted.

    Advice to Management

    Toronto office management should consider modelling the company values on a more consistent basis.
