    I worked at PennWest full-time (More than 5 years)


    Great assets and amazing potential. Their vacation policy and office closures are great, and they used to have a great office culture. Office location is in the heart of downtown and close to many lunch spots. Their benefits package is very competitive.


    The management team struggles to retain its best employees. It has failed to deliver on its promises and as a result the company has continued to experience losses and unmet production targets. All of the recent restructuring has killed employee morale and most people are in roles that they no longer enjoy. The work load is way too high and the management skills are lacking.
