I have been working at Strongco full-time (more than a year)Pros
The have good training programs and higher management comes to many meetings. However they are just there, never actually there to help employee's with their issues.Cons
Company has re-vamped their teams for Alberta and done a poor job doing so. There is no team feel, departments are run poorly meaning poor customer service and in the long run no repeat customers. New management is not up to par, and old/new staff are not working well. There is a lot of behind the doors conversations and whispers. They need to have more HR meetings with staff so staff can discuss management issues/concerns without threatening their job relationships.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Office culture is the pits, there is no team work, manager favorites and too many closed door conversations. You want positive things to happen with the changes then get rid of the old and hire staff with experience and work on equality over fast numbers and shotty work.Doesn't RecommendNegative Outlook
