    Pros

    Work balance is there for some. Good benefits. Good RRSP matching plan

    Cons

    Top Heavy management style, not collaborative. Too many middle manages and redundant VPs who do not earn their keep. Too far behind the curve to adapt new ideas.

    Advice to Management

    collaboration on implementation of strategy will get employees buy on. Top heavy approach stifles any creativity and creates poor work atmosphere. Bad hiring decisions at the VP level led to a lot of staff turnover at the management level.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Burnaby, BC (Canada)

    I worked at CGA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work life balance, good pay scale, good benefits package

    Cons

    Six levels of management for a department of twenty people leads to an utter impossibility for those with something to do to get it done. Tendency to reinvent the wheel, at great length and expense, rather than spend half the time adapting something that is already in use.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce number of managers by about 50%, empower the employees a bit more, research available alternatives in the marketplace before spending years and a fortune trying to reinvent from scratch. For the compensation package you're offering, you should have people willing and able to take on more authority.
