      Pros

      - A successful, recognizable Canadian company. - Provides a wide range of opportunities including foreign office exchange, and working with various disciplines and professions. - No expense spared on tech tools for getting the job done. - Good autonomy, but also a good team atmosphere at individual offices. - Company seems to have a genuine desire to be a good corporate citizen in its community, and treat its employees well. - Takes health and safety seriously.

      Cons

      - Health benefits leave a little too be desired. - Pay scales may not be competitive in select sectors. - New agile offices may be a challenge for those who enjoy the interaction of working in the office, but at least remote working infrastructure is solid.

      Current Employee

      Corporate Profits over People

      Mar 24, 2021 - Aviation Consultant in Kitchener, ON
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      There are no pros anymore. I have had 9 bosses in 5 years, and none of them ever know what I do. Don't believe any of what they write about inclusivity, and developing staff.

      Cons

      The independence that we once had has been eroded by 'operational efficiencies'. We are micromanaged to death, and expected to continue to do more and more and more with less resources. Our team has slowly been losing people with no retention strategy, and no acknowledgement of the additional stress this puts on individuals. I can't think of a more faceless monster of a corporation. If you are early in your career avoid this place at all costs.
