      Fine if you aren't ambitious

      Jun 25, 2021 - Senior IT Project Manager in Toronto, ON
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Stable - Hard to get fired (is only really a "pro" if you aren't very good) - Good benefits - Decent name on resume (for some potential employers)

      Cons

      - There is a lot of bureaucracy standing in the way of quick progression, attitude is that you need to "pay your dues" for a (long) period, even if you are better than most at the next level - Pay is not competitive for high performers, and you will be up against caps on increases (max 15%) each year unless you have a manager who is willing to fight the system for you. This has a disproportionately negative impact on people who are early in their career. - Since pay isn't good, you work with a lot of people who are not/barely competent - Since there are people who are not/barely competent, red tape and bureaucracy is imposed to keep people from messing up

      Overall ok

      Pros

      The office Spaces are clean and well maintained. There is good IT support to do your work. The computers and network in general is fast so you can work efficiently. HR helpdesk is reachable and issues get resolved quickly. Payroll dept also works well so you get paid on time. People do not yell, scream or use abusive language so its very good environment to work in. There is a no scent policy so office is perfume-less and for me its a big plus. There used to be your own workspace but this may be changing as there was a open concept workplace senior management was planning on.

      Cons

      There is a one size fits all approach when it comes to all new initiatives. It can become quite stressful as pushing back can look like noncompliance. So whatever comes down from top comes down in full force and can crush you even though its unreasonable to do what they ask you to do in the context of your work.
