Pros

Challenging and interesting work until you realize you have so much that you cant dig yourself out from under it.

Cons

Work/life balance only exists on the Release Management calendar. It is taken away by the exemptions that never fail to get approved. Oh and by the way....the numbers in timetiger arent't correct except for people who have given up and are looking for another job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fair compensation for hours worked is deserved by your employees who work so many hours to be successful under this workload. Speak the truth about employee retention if you're not going to make the changes to stop losing so many good people.

    Pros

    good if you are more about politics and less about actual development.
    good starter place to learn about financial services.
    flex hours, nobody cares if you come in an hour late or so

    Cons

    The mississauga office is too chaotic, every developers seems to be wanting to do whatever they like, poor moral of management and a lot of turnover.
    company has been in restructuring mood for a while meaning anytime your job can change or simply disappear. Politics is a norm, as a result honest hard working
    developers suffer. bad for those who are starting out their career. sadely the management tries to create a facade by saying things like "there is a lot of work
    needing to be done", or "We are hiring more people" dont fall for those, those are gotchas. management looks for easy preys. if your manager doesnt like you
    be prepared to sort things out directly or he can simply let you go under the "Restructuring" label. I saw 3 team leads leave from my branch. senior devs would
    encourage to "look busy". bottom line people have left the company and rejoined under a different position, if you dont care about moral and douche managers then its a good place to gain some valable experience and use it as a stepping stone.

    other observations
    under paid staff all round, hear people complaining about low salary and being worked like donkeys

    Pros

    Good place to get expereince and move on. They definitely hire anyone, its good to get in but leave as soon as a better opportunity comes up.

    Cons

    D+H is known to interview your replacement, hire them, and fire you the day before your replacement starts. If you manager is ever in the office at 8am that means he/she is conducting interviews for a replacement on the team. Upper management is aware of this and promotes this behaviour, they only fire people after they have found the replacement. Most employees were never given a reason to why they were fired, management cites "downsizing" etc. Management does not address issues with employees and areas for improvement, if management does not like an employee they will fire them based on that and upper management and HR fully support them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Speak openly to employees and work with them. Do not conduct interviews and fire your employees at the first sign of struggle, it leaves a bad impression on the team and gives D+H a terrible reputation.
