The Times are a Changing

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Calgary, AB (Canada)

ProsYou *might* get to work with some excellent professionals who haven't left yet!
A certain degree of autonomony...because no one apparently is in charge.

ConsLost a ton of their best staff in the recent years.
Conglomerate of companies with no real plan to merge operations between verticals. Very inefficient.
Severely under-staffed in management.
Complex ownership structure which muddys the waters of how/why/who actually makes decisions.
Extreme workload.

Advice to Senior ManagementBite the bullet. Bring in some management consultants and square the ship...or you'll sink. Smart people know when to ask for help...

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Time to put on big/girl boy pants

    Document Control Assistant (Former Employee)
    Calgary, AB (Canada)

    I worked at Focus Corporation full-time for less than a year


    Pros: You get paid and there are SOME really nice people.… Cons: All the fruit and fun is not enough to make you want to stay. Project managers are seriously lacking training. ALS credentials do not make… Advice to Senior Management: Be professional and provide training when required. If you see someone has an attitude problem, deal with it. Even managers need to have their hands… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
