    I have been working at SLR International full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits and good opportunity to grow within company.

    Cons

    Too much micromanagement. It`s to the point where you can`t even make your own schedule; they do it for you and you have to do it when they tell you. The micro-management even goes as far as to state that you must have your lunch between noon and 1pm unless approved. Also, overtime must be approved as well otherwise it`s not allowed. It`s crazy. This is consulting; not a government agency.

    Advice to Management

    Please, enough of the micro-management! It`s oppressive and insufferable and creates an intimidating and uncomfortable work environment.

    I worked at SLR International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, work-life balance and great support from the Vancouver and Markham office. The regional office manager was a great mentor to me, despite the activities that went on at this office.

    Cons

    Extremely unprofessional (i.e. staff BBQs + lots of drinking, going away party that consisted of a male stripper, my immediate supervisor having sex with a co-worker, sometimes at work). A couple of the project managers were terrible mentors - very little to no support from them. It got to the point where I decided to report and support the regional office manager, b/c he was the only one that would assign work to me. Despite everything else, the majority of my co-workers (junior scientists / engineers) were pleasant to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Need better leaders!
