    Fear & intimidation

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFair salary, better then average benefits, able to work unlimited hours with possible extra compensation, good after the fact training,

    Consalways someones fault, find the root cause of any challenge or missed key performance indicator and teach someone a lesson, A scared worker is a better worker, better work half you day and cover your but the other half, as the blame game will start and hope it someone else this week

    Advice to Senior ManagementFear and intimidation was in 1950 open your eyes to keep good people

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Only job in town

    Planning Forester (Former Employee)
    Prince George, BC (Canada)

    ProsThe only job in town for foresters, close to home, some good people, salaries are competitive.

    Conslow-cost corporate culture, intense competition for positions, expected to be on-call all the time, hire a specific type of personell that obeys orders and follows procedures, not honest about career paths and possibilities, string part-time employees along with the promise of full-time positions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate a real team atmosphere instead of condescending to junior and intermediate employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
