It's a good company to work for, but experience varies greatly by department. Finance is not a good place to work for.

Pros

Good opportunities for lateral movements.
Good benefits. Friendly people.

Cons

Companys is becoming very bureaucratic. Incapable managers are leading the finance department, they don't treat people with respect, and they fire people just because they voice their oppinion which may be against the managers'. Replacements are usually brought in from Maple Leaf, but not necessary based on merit, but on frienship. New managemend surroud themselves with yes people. This approach will backfire sooner or later.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not all positions are posted iternally.
People are getting fired and no formal announcements are made. You just find out they are gone.
This is not alligned with the values.

    talk to the rank and file they have more insite as to what is going on and are more likly to tell you the truth. employees should have a say in Quality control . people who are proud of their product and work place do a better job and stay longer
