    Pros

    Very relaxed atmosphere, good central location, some nice people to work with other than management. Their Argus and RVA divisions have a good reputation.

    Cons

    Management can not be trusted, the hire Business Development professionsals to build their book of business and then manage them out the door so they don't have to pay commissions. They consistantly lie to their clients about outcomes and capacity. Dallas manager has had an on going affair with an assistant since 2013 and upper management is fully aware of the affair.

    Advice to Management

    Too may Chefs and not enough Indians. Employ younger consultants and cut the older "old school" consultants that are putting your company at risk with underhanded deals.

    Pros

    Pay was good and work hours were flexible.

    Cons

    It was not about quality of work but was about your social status with management. Management was promoted based on friendship with boss and did not know how to be management. Some of the management are just riding the paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Fairness to ALL employees.

    Pros

    coworkers are nice. used to be a big family, good coworkers are leaving.

    Cons

    managers don't know what they should do. they are trying to manage company like a large company , but not willing to spend anything like a large company. They only want profit, no money for any thing else.

    Advice to Management

    time to change.

    Pros

    Great work colleagues, very knowledgeable and professional people that are a pleasure to work with, willing to share their project and industry experiences.

    Cons

    Upper Management within the group that I worked were not good communicators, too many closed door meetings that obviously a great number of issues were discussed however, staff were generally kept in the dark.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication

    Pros

    Great benefits package - Flexible vacation selections - Committed to producing a decent product.

    Cons

    No longer care about the people - below standard compensation - poor marketing division - unable to generate loyalty in employees.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that the people selected for top level management positions are actually qualified to lead. Poor inexperienced leaders do not make sound people choices.

    Pros

    With Altus being a provider of lots of real estate services, it depends which area you work in and more importantly the team you work with. Some areas are more favourable to upper management than others so if you are lucky to start with the favourable ones you will be treated much better than if you worked in a less favourable team. Staff are nice and friendly, great to communicate with which makes it easy to build team and work effectively. Opportunity to grow fast, smart work style with not much process, procedures or red tape. Flexible hours, remote work are also available which is great. Comparing Altus to other employers in Calgary gives Altus a great advantage. People are way nicer and work is more fun than other employers I worked with Cons - Your value/salary depends on your negotiation skills and communication not on how much effort you put - If you wait for a raise, good luck.. easier to move on - Too much politics, people are not treated the same - Promotions work fine, management is up to their promises. If you were promised something you will get it but you won't get it based on effort - Move on and come back big is the biggest problem here. Need to motivate people to grow within and treat them better than new comers

    Cons

    - Your value/salary depends on your negotiation skills, communication and the value you bring not on how much effort you put - If you wait for a raise, good luck.. easier to move on - Promotions work fine, management is up to their promises. If you were promised something you will get it but you won't get it if you don't ask for it - Move on and come back big is the biggest problem here. Need to motivate people to grow within and treat them better than new-comers or re-hires

    Advice to Management

    - Promote motivational/ personal development courses - More communication from Headoffice
