    Great company to work for (IT / Development)

    Software Developer (Former Employee) Vancouver, BC (Canada)

    ProsGenerally trust people to be autonomous, I was trusted to determine the correct path forward for my product. Had a great working relationship with my management.

    ConsToo much of the old school 'butts in seats mentality' I think this held the organization back as it's much more effective to measure output to determine success, measuring the butts in seats is easier but ultimately useless.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCut back on the butts in seat mentality, Make sure that open source solutions are investigated first. Invest in an in house development group, outsourcing development is probably the only mistake being made consistently right now.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Impark Vancouver IT department is a revolving door (work, burn out, discard, repeat) Abusive management team.

    IT Staff (Former Employee) Vancouver, BC (Canada)

    ProsDecent benefits and some people are really nice. Centrally located downtown near transit.

    ConsThe Vancouver IT management team don't care about people and HR is powerless to enforce. IT Management only care about their job security as outsourcing becomes a reality. The Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan owns Impark and they know nothing about parking. The same people who have protested throughout history about unfair working conditions. Now our trusted and respected members of the community support this model for profit.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRelieve the CTO of his duties. Put the CEO on notice for measurable, corrective action. Get the Teacher's to lead by example and proactively manage with non bias, outside, professional help (as they know nothing about parking). Evaluate the old boys, bully, management club (top down) and replace as necessary. Use an anonymous, online, employee survey for confirmation. Document exit interviews with department staff in question and hold management accountable and enforce penalties. Empower the head of HR so they can stand up to senior management to support an ethical environment. Teachers now is your chance to fix the problems that you know all too well. So you have credibility when you complain about your working conditions in the schools. If 10 people give bad reviews you know there are 100's who may feel the same way, its a big company. New hires need to question the turn over rate before taking a job in IT.

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

    Senior management are egotistical idiots; treat staff like expendable commodities

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThere were none that I can recall.

    ConsSenior management were under the delusion that staff morale is improving when in fact it was always rock-bottom and still is. Impark laid off a large group of people 2 weeks before Christmas - yes, TWO weeks before Christmas, that's just the kind of company they are. Absolutely terrible place to work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat people fairly and with some respect. Hire some senior management who actually know what they're doing and value staff.

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

    A great learning experience and transition stepping stone to the next phase in my career.

    Telecommunications Administrator (Former Employee) Vancouver, BC (Canada)

    ProsThe people, the values, the culture, team-oriented environment. energetic location and
    opportunities for advancement

    ConsSome of the time frames required for site conversions were almost unrealistic to meet due to short deadlines.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more communicative to staff when there is a possible bid on the table to take over a site, the staff can then be more prepared to complete a conversion.
