    Advice to Management

    Management needs to make it easier for past Employees to have access to their offices regarding Retirement Issues, such as Insurance and Health Benefits The last year of employment does not allow for longer Retirees; I was let go in 1998 when our division was closed.

    Pros

    Great benefits! You get good vacation for a North American office. Good health plans too.

    Cons

    Absolute vacuum when it comes to leadership. No vision at all with the Montreal office or the Gas Turbine business. Your pay wil stay stagnant and you will never be appreciated for what good work you do.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about the business, the office, and the people working for you. Get your heads out of your assess and learn some humility or basic human decency.
