Pros

Good opportunities to develop and try different types of jobs. Good opportunities to travel and meet different people and cultures.

Cons

There can sometimes be too much work needed. Traveling can also be a problem, staying away from the family. But this is something that you can normally choose.

Advice to Management

Please try to follow up on the workload of some people. Sometimes too much work is expected and not everyone is good at saying "no" when asked to do a task. Also make sure that vacation is held to reasonable extent.

    Pros

    The people are great - very helpful and encouraging. There is a strong commitment to continuing education. Seminars are frequently offered and you are encouraged to attend. On site EAP and medical office is a bonus.

    Cons

    Male dominated management, sometimes hostile to women. Past history of nepotism which has improved. Limited opportunity for advancement in Finance.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employee surveys. Conduct regular 360 reviews of management, especially directors. Eliminate deadwood. Only hire qualified friends and family.

    Good company to work for if you don’t mind the bureaucratic wait to do business.

    Pros

    Currently, in 2009 beginning of 2010, the business is going forward and back ward since major contract, that was supposed to be sign last year, never show up. The management try to keep the best employers but strange decision we’re made. But soon major contract should come in this industry (High speed train) and the job will boom in this company. Good benefits, you done your time and you good home, since it's a multinational company there is opportunities around the world.

    Cons

    Overtime is not pay, bonus rarely show up, since there is no factory in Montreal and if you need to see and work on the product you will need to travel a lot. It seems there is no link between what was bided and what we are building: The customer asks for everything and management says yes instead of looking at the contract. This put a lot of pressure on the operation people and most of the projects are late.

    Advice to Management

    From the start of the project Follow the contract!
