Company seems to flounder

Engineer (Current Employee)
Edmonton, AB (Canada)

ProsGood vacation and decent salary, work can be interesting and the atmosphere is mostly pretty relaxed

ConsPoor leadership, lack of direction and focus on trivia rather than technical issues. Purchasing is cumbersom. Poor adaptation of technology to improve work efficiency - Lots of paper documentation.

Advice to Senior ManagementSpend a few million getting your house in order, proper PM development and efficency improvement programs i.e. searcheble electronic databases for equipment.

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