Overwhelming at first, difficult to find your place, but very rewarding when you do.

Student Engineering Assistant (Current Employee)
Waterloo, ON (Canada)

I have been working at Conestoga-Rovers & Associates

Pros-Fair Salary
-Great People (in my work group anyways)
-Enjoyable social events (box hockey seats - free food and drinks)
-Fast Paced Leading Edge Work

Cons-Overwhelming to start without knowing any CRA work standards (aka very difficult to be comparably productive as co-workers)
-Constant work to do, have to charge every 30 minutes of your time to a project code (but hey, that is why they call it work)
-4% vacation pay, too little IMO

Advice to Senior Management-Restrict the amount of repetitive work given to certain people (often people who are just really good at one thing, so find it difficult to find the time to learn something else)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
