      Pros

      New leadership is building the foundation to grow the company. There have been many changes over the last few years, but the culture and sense of purpose has remained unchanged. Great people to work with, interesting clients and projects, supportive executive team, flexible work environment, and a focus on doing the right thing

      Cons

      Still in a period of transition and laying the ground work for future success. New CEO has a good head on his shoulders and is doing the right things, but leadership needs a more 'dynamic' figure to get the market and sales team excited again Interim CEO killed a lot of momentum that is now coming to the fore

      Great culture, still transitioning from 'old regime'

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      There are plenty of pros for working at DIRTT: solid benefits, great lunch program (not to mention lots of snacks and drinks), dog fridays, lounge nights, the culture. Vacation/working from home/ sick days are very flexible (especially as an office worker). Opportunity to expand and explore beyond just your assigned work. Management is very open to suggestions, and it's clear they care about improvement.

      Cons

      There are still some organizational inefficiencies; for example, the new HQ that will re-combine the two Calgary offices is still two years away (long overdue!). Also, the organizational structure can be confusing. Departments are often siloed. Career advancement isn't clear, and somewhat uncertain because upper management positions are in flux.
