    Pros

    Good benefits and good starting salary. Opportunities to learn on the job.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity after the first year. The culture is difficult - very Canadian oriented and carpetbagger mentality. The Canadians have mobility, the locals don't. Bad communication top down, and clickish. Top management make erratic decisions, or at least, not explainable. No buy-in from the staff is needed.

    Advice to Management

    More communication and buy-in to develop more loyal employees and to retain good employees.

    Pros

    Started off great, but numerous changes in upper management as lead to a overall free fall in employee moral, and attitude.

    Cons

    No additional training, upper management is awful. No clear leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Think outside the box.

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Loyal long term employees
    Learned alot

    Cons

    Very sexist
    Too many friends & family = favoritism
    Too many managers

    Advice to Management

    Internal audits of middle & lower management & their cliques. Clean up the corruption, abuse of position and PD name. Being employeed should be earned not cause you are liked.

    Pros

    The pay and benefits package are decent. If you like donuts you might get a shot at them once in awhile.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership & accountability by management. Accomplishments are not recognized. Sharing of information so one can further develop their career is minimal - some people can be more concerned about protecting seniority.

    Advice to Management

    Director level management should be more involved with engaging employees under them or HR in terms of overall job satisfaction /performance reviews.

    Pros

    I haven't experienced any yet.

    Cons

    On-site management are very disrespectful to lower level employees. Many degrading comments are made about "lazy Americans", by Canadian employees.

    Advice to Management

    Train your leadership to show respect for all employees and you may not have as much employee turnover.
