SL Canada is a good place to work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Montreal, QC (Canada)

ProsPlenty of opportunity to move around within the organization, resources are in place to support career development. Managers are supportive of external training. Performance reviews occur annually.

ConsComp is average at best, benefits are nothing to write home about. Management could do a better job of connecting with mid-level staff.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to be more hands-off on projects of average importance; too much micro-management takes place in instances where it is really unnecessary.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    It's a good company to work for, at the forefront of change and always ensuring it performs more than what is expected.
