    The worst managed company out there.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Fort McMurray, AB (Canada)

    ProsLaid back atmosphere, great work schedule (Monday-Thursday), great pay (for a company that doesn't make much money!), car pool is great compared to bussing

    ConsNo training, no accountability, uneducated and unprofessional management, poor planning, weak leadership, cannot retain good employees, reactive not preventative, too many "retirees"

    Advice to Senior ManagementTime to spend the money and bring in real leaders from other companies.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Technically Lost

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThere is a great deal of work to be done
    Genuinely nice people
    Business units (other than IT) genuinely happy
    Much more opportunity for meaningful work for IT employees

    ConsFundamental misunderstanding of technology/architecture
    Heavy reliance on Gartner reports
    Get it done at all costs mentality in many cases
    Not meaningful or challenging work for senior contractors

    Advice to Senior ManagementBring in senior people from other environments to help craft a longer term view

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Worst place to work in my 15 years of experience

    IT (Former Employee) Calgary, AB (Canada)

    ProsCompensation is good and everything else sucks.

    ConsNo respect for human rights and freedoms. They will kick you out regardless of performance because of political games and greediness of people who are there for long time. They would ignore abuse toward other people. Even good compensation is not worth amount of frustration you have to go through.

    I'm very glad I'm out from there !!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementRespect for basic human rights. Shame on this company and it's management.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
