    Pros

    Canadian company, outside downtown, nice building and family feel of peers

    Cons

    I.T. department is run from the U.S. and trending offshore for services. Ratio of Directors to staff is ridiculous and people needed do the actual work can't be hired. Why? - i really am not high enough up to know.

    Advice to Management

    You may want to ask some of us " lower folks" how we could see improvements for departments.

    Agrium portrays the best example of team work. Every one supports you no matter how much you know regarding the job.

    Pros

    Fellow workers
    The management team
    Life/work balance

    Cons

    New Managers are dropped in every two years. By the time they figure out the system they have made some drastic changes which they will never see the effects of but we have to live with.

    Advice to Management

    It'd be nice to have a say about which managers we would like to stay and which ones we'd rather not see again. Every year they seem to tighten the budget as that's how to get the Golden keys to Agrium Palace. Not really a fan of our CEO who seems to claw back funds for projects but in return sees the second highest income of all CEOs in Canada. Twenty Million dollars per year siphoning off the company to his wallet and yet he's having us scrounge for money to afford status quo.
