Dependable and Fun, but political and career progression depends on your individual department/manager

Project Manager (Current Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

ProsVery predictable, not a lot is expected of you so if you do more than expected, you get noticed. Nice people, can make a difference if you try. Salaries seem a bit lower compared to peers, but fewer layoffs / firings. Actually very difficult to get fired. Senior senior management seems to be on track to meet targets.

ConsPromotion is not always (often?) based on merit, often based on internal politics. For an allegedly data driven organization senior management is often too sensitive to political concerns than what the data is suggesting - particularly if the suggested course of action is new or "radical". Lifers (30 year plus) vets jealously guard their positions. While those at the highest levels of management impress, middle management seems scared / afraid to innovate.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
