    Pros

    Great concept of changing from electricity to wind energy.

    Communication to office in Montreal because that is where all the accounting is done. Should have conducted an interview before the contract began rather than starting a stranger right in on the position.

    Advice to Management

    Include Office Manager in on more SAP training with an English speaking teacher.
