    Pros

    -Work with a great group of people.
    -Jobs are challenging and interesting.
    -Technology wise they try to stay current.
    -Multiple offices, so opportunity to transfer between offices.

    Cons

    -The company runs lean. While this is not a bad thing, expect to live at the office if there are major deadlines.
    -No bonuses.
    -If you are salaried....be ready to work extra hours and not get paid for it.
    -Company is very disorganized with all the mergers. Management is out of touch with what goes on day-to-day.
    -Not much of an opportunity for advancement. Management has tracks set up, but there is little support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Get more in touch with the pulse of the company.
    -Recognize and pay attention to other areas besides the corporate office in Canada. The US services is very large.

    Pros

    You can maintain a work/life balance if you are okay doing mediocre work and remain steadfast in going home at decent times. Can try to take off early on Fridays, but that usually doesn't happen due to poor project management and unforeseen deadlines. The people are nice and pleasant enough. Health benefits are okay, but not stellar. The company doesn't have a strong focus, so the projects are quite varied.

    Cons

    There is no management of people and no growth opportunities. Management is focused on dollars and cents, not the people. Therefore, there is significant turnover. Projects are never executed well, nor is management even trying to improve. They actually do not seem to care about the poor quality of work or stress caused by needlessly staying in the office late to meet last minute deadlines. The company also does not cover things like parking costs at the office or food when traveling. The gray cube environment is sufficating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Start investing in your employees if you expect long term loyalty
    2) Recognize good work with bonuses or another method of award
    3) Do not do the same thing over and over again while expecting different/improved results
    4) Improve/update the office environment

    Pros

    Free coffee.
    Nice view from the conference room window.

    Rank and file employees don't get bonuses.

    Pros

    Pay is higher than most.

    Cons

    Everything else. Project managers and upper management short hours on projects to gain more profit. Nothing is about customer service. They cannot ever maintain the same customer because of the projects they run into the ground. 90% billed with nothing to show. Upper management keeps employees in the dark with a constant state of deception.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut off the head and start over. You people in upper management who only care how they look and the money they make. They have NO sense of helping others grow.

    Pros

    interesting work, people, computers were good...

    Cons

    can't advance beyond you "status" ie: a Tech can not be a manager... that's just for engineers... that kind of thing... hence the glass ceiling

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    everyone should have a chance to "pee" in the golden toilet.
