    Pros

    Great benefits, clean work environment, free lunch (catered three course meals), family envionment between workers, four days on four days off work schedule, high tech work environment,

    Cons

    i dont have many bad things to say i love the company and some of the supervisors were not cut out to be a lead so production slowed when it was up to them to solve a issue.

    Advice to Management

    promote employees to management or supervisor that have erned and are knowledge in the job instead of who is most liked.

    Pros

    Innovative products with good design, modern business sense, nice employees, nice corporate headquarters, good perks if you work at corporate headquarters.

    Cons

    Very old school, top-down, management approach. Weak management that sets unrealistic expectations and provides no guidance, training or support to achieve goals. Not interested in employee, customer or market feedback. I witnessed many tirades, insults screaming at employees during large conference calls or emails.

    Advice to Management

    Get some management training.

    The job itself has great perks, but management is abhorrent.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, and some neat perks. Schedule gives for plenty of time off each week. Lunch provided each day.

    Cons

    Worst management ever encountered in my career history. Employees are treated like disposable parts, but that is most companies, I guess. There are more issues with the team "leaders" experienced in the time with this company then there is space provided here.

    Advice to Management

    Check your egos at the door. If you claim to have an "open door policy," give people the right to speak without fear of losing their jobs!

    Pros

    Completely innovative and on the cutting edge of product and technology. Amazing opportunities for continued growth worldwide. Open office is great for team building and learning about the company. Fantastic perks like flexibility, growth, awesome kitchen with meal service. Visionary leadership team all of whom are totally committed to the success of the company and the employees. Opportunity for change and advancement. Great culture of caring dedicated employees. Company focuses on the environment and sustainability. Significant number of long term employees still working for DIRTT and I'm proud to be one of them!

    Cons

    If you can't handle a fast pace and some stress this isn't the place for you. The kitchen provides a lot of food and may cause weight gain.

    Advice to Management

    Celebrate the wins don't just focus on fixing problems.

    Pros

    - An exciting, proven, industry changing concept - super fast manufacturing of custom walls, electrical, cabinets and more using 3d design software and environmentally sustainable methods. Feels awesome to contribute to something no other company can do.

    - Never just a 9-5 job. Get to solve real problems and see tangible results. Very fulfilling.

    - Flat structure means you can grow and move within the company depending on your interests and aptitude.

    - Work with brilliant people who are passionate too.

    - Great perks - breakfast and lunch, pub nights, flexible hours.

    Cons

    - Sink or swim. No one cares about you unless you're doing something attention-worthy. No appreciation for the steady hard workers.

    - Flat structure means the "management" in place have no leadership skills and lack accountability. Don't have a mentality of responsibility, just of keeping their own heads above water. Terrible trickle-down effect, etc.

    - Hours are flexible, but there is no compensation for overtime, not even lieu time. And there is a lot of overtime.

    - Benefits aren't competitive with Calgary corporate standards.

    - Calgary office is open concept but the CEO refuses to expand as staff increases. Literally crammed in elbow-to-elbow.

    - Lot of people have been there too long. At the beginning they lived and breathed innovation and risk. Now they live and breath we-always-do-it-this-way. This combined with passive aggressive management and no interest in mentoring or developing new hires means turnover of valuable people.

    - Every exec and director have strong personalities and quirks - no balance. They feed off each other's lack of focus and no initiatives of substance get implemented in a profitable way. COO is the exception - very smart but brash management style.

    - I'd only recommend DIRTT to people who are ambitious and thick-skinned. It needs serious steering before it gets back on course.

    Advice to Management

    Sit back, take a breath, get the right people in place. You're a public company now - you owe it to shareholders to implement structure. You've avoided it in the past to preserve the culture. The culture's dying too - and it's the employees who make it unique. Cared for employees = happy, productive employees = DIRTT can reach its potential = successful business.

    Pros

    Progressive. Any employee can take the leadership role and excel. Flat structured organization.

    Not all policies and procedures are anti progress. Procedures are sometimes needed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep reviving the culture.
