      -tons of training courses to take -people are generally nice -compensation -location of the Calgary office -bistro on 34th fl in the Calgary office


      -employees are disposable -managers do not know how to grow or develop their employees -decreases employee morale based on favouritism -too much work with no significant purpose or value -no clear vision -HR has no idea what they are doing and do not practice what they preach at all -no place for advancement unless you are considered their 'superstar' (then those people get everything) -too many useless and unproductive meetings that end up draining everybody -too much change that doesn't seem to ever get anywhere positive -high turnover -does not help employees try to reach their potential because everyone is too focused on office politics and trying to climb up the corporate ladder for themselves -will disregard their entry-level employees -too many VP's that do not seem to know how to lead a team, all they have are their egos -management only values 'work horses' who can sit and work, work, work with no voice -not a good place if you want to be in a creative, supportive, entrepreneurial environment -they do not know how to recognize real talent and let go of great people with tons of potential

        People were great to work with.


        Management was terrible and had no regard to employees needs.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)



      I finished final round interview. Should I send a thank you letter to everyone or only to people where I have something interesting to add on. I interviewed with the hiring manager twice already and sent thank you emails. He never responds, should I even bother to send him one more since we talked again in the final round? HR said I wouldn’t hear back until late next week earliest. It sounds like they still have to wrap up final rounds with other people. I don’t want them to forget me.


      Data Engineer

      Got a possible interview coming up with Pepsico as a data engineer in the DFW, TX area. It's more towards an entry-beginner type of role. Anyone know what kind of questions I should be expecting in the technical part of the interview?



      What level of influence do potential stakeholders have in the decision-making process during a peer interview? For instance, in my upcoming 3rd round interview involving three peers, following successful phone screenings and VP interviews, would a scenario where one peer has a positive impression while the others don't, or vice versa, significantly impact my chances of securing the job?
