    More cons than pros

    Pros

    • Office space and work environment is great. • Flexible hours (to a certain extent) • Mostly great co-workers • Great to gather experience • RRSP matching • Good work/life balance if you don't fall for their BS.

    Cons

    • Virtue signaling management • Salary is not up to par with tasks, responsibilities, and requirements • Management says they care about their staff, but actions speak louder than words. • Very little cultural diversity. The largest discrepancy is found between office workers and shop workers where most employees who work in the shop are low-paid minorities while everyone in the office is white. • The way that office workers are paid makes absolutely no sense. Everyone is on an annual salary yet you have to punch in and out. If you're late an hour, you get your wage reduced yet if you work overtime, you do not get paid for it. • Terrible handling of the pandemic. Hours were reduced across the board, for the most part, yet many employees were complaining that they still had to work on their unpaid day-off to avoid falling behind on work. • unrealistic and tight deadlines that forces employees to essentially burn-out or deal with immense pressure and stress. • Projects are late like 75% of the time due to the above. • Constant mistakes and errors • Zero accountability for the departments that cause the most issues. • Zero training provided • Zero appreciation for the hard work that is performed by some employees • False promises. (I was personally told that I would receive bonuses for my performance yet I've never seen a penny • No performance reviews (I've had to ask for them myself) • No yearly raises (I've had to ask for them myself) not even to cover cost of living increases...SMH... • Some members in management are authoritarian. ...I can surely keep it going, but I'll stop there. Oh, and the CEO didn't even bother to talk to me/look at me after I resigned. Shows how much he cares about the people who fill his bank account with their sweat equity.

    Pros

    You work with so many talented people. You learn and gain experience from different projects.

    Cons

    Company structure needs to be improved as well as the internal procedures. Hectic and overwhelming most of the times. Have to go through several people to get answers. Understaffed yet no paid overtime. Employees aren't really valued. Salary wise: Underpaid.
