    Pros

    Slightly above market salary and good benefits (bonuses, RRSP, insurance and employee Internet/cell program). Nice building (Ile des Soeurs) specially during the summer. Working hours are not bad and a work/personal balance can be achieved. Work atmosphere within teams is positive and, in general, the feeling is that teammates want to help each other.

    Cons

    Actual job can be frustrating with lots of emails going back and forth. There are excel spreadsheets for everything and most activities are not very efficient. Lots of different systems for different tasks. It is very easy to make mistakes since work can be very complicated (mostly because of processes and systems). Company leaves place for slackers to thrive as it is really hard to tell who is pulling their share of the workload and who is just simulating.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in better systems and streamline processes.
