      Pros

      It was a great environment to work in for someone just establishing their career. Company had great framework for learning & development.

      Cons

      The environment was very corporate where there was not much chance to work with other departments in the organization. Stating that, it was because the functions were more specialized becuase of the company being a larger shop.

      Pros

      Good culture, guarantee work life balance. People work well together, no back stabbing . Could be the over Canadian culture. A place where you can make friends

      Cons

      Not much opportunity for vertical movement. That could be a Canada thing as things move slightly slower in the country

      Pros

      Awesome atmosphere in the team. People in there are very nice and helpful. I didnt need to stay often after hours.

      Cons

      Management. Ugh. Always saying one excuse or another to manage our expectations. They do little to retain talent and it’s extremely frustrating because otherwise great workplace...
