Pros

The company takes care of its people and provides trainings for potential growth. They are big in trainings which, sadly, employees rarely take. There are opportunities to transfer to other regional offices. Pay is good dependent on location.

Cons

The company is huge and keeps hiring newbies who are either very, very good or very, very inept. The hiring procedures are in place but rarely used. At times, it's the manager's 'gut feel' which, most of the time, is wrong. Turnover in recent months is high.

Advice to Management

Instead of hiring outside people, look from within. There are in-house people more capable for the job rather than spending a fortune scouting people from outside.

    Pros

    Decent pay for a coop job to save a bit of money. Opportunity to learn new things like laboratory skills and field work. Opportunity to interact with clients on a daily basis that is enjoyable. Camp work was enjoyable because of free accommodation and free food. Training was decent considering the minimal amount of time needed to train a technician. I would recommend this job for coop students that want to learn a variety of things in the lab and in the field.

    Cons

    Incompetent management No benefits No perks Long hours Massive layoffs during "bust" season

    Too many silos and too many 'protected' people to allow the company to really grow
