    Pros

    None really, best advise is to stay away.

    Cons

    Sinking ship, CEO appoints friends & family to senior management positions and the board, awards contracts to close family friends, company has little vision and no growth prospects, share price will tank in next couple years when market analysts finally wake up and take a good look at the company and financials.

      I have been working at ATCO full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      Ideal employer for brown nosers. Some get promoted to supervisor or manager position with high school education (face palm)

      Cons

      Dollar per hour is minimum wage. 6-figures on paper. Unfortunately, the company has no direction. Leadership themes were “disruption”, “innovation”, “efficiency”, etc but company keeps going through reorg after reorg... adding layers of sr executives.

      Advice to Management

      Practice what you preach. Need a new ceo

      Pros

      Good front line staff. Decent pay

      Cons

      Too many chiefs. Not enough worker bees. CEO is all about the bottom line and pleasing shareholders at the expense of its best asset—-it’s people

      Advice to Management

      Practice what you preach. Empowerment is a powerful word that starts with investing on others before the bottom line
