    Long term employment, career focused

    Senior Consultant (Current Employee)
    Mississauga, ON (Canada)

    ProsDynamic work, always new challenges.

    ConsLack of enforcement in roles and responsibilities, some people over extend but are not corrected when it happens.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease focus on performance of the individual, low performers need to be removed and replaced with high performing individuals. Some employees fly under the radar with antiquated skills and just occupy a seat.

    Good, flexible work environment but limited opportunity for advancement

    Senior Consultant (Former Employee)
    Ottawa, ON (Canada)

    ProsStrong bonus program each year - makes up for lower than industry salaries
    Flexible working, mobile access, hands-off management
    Ability to 'define your own job'

    ConsLimited advancement opportunities
    Narrow industry focus, very limited client base
    Somewhat 'sheltered' from the real world - limited opportunity to interact in real tech or business world

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to encourage more cross-functional involvement. Very silo'd across the groups - technical, vs. BDM, vs. Corporate Services
    Encourage more cross-client involvement as much as possible
    Bring in speakers from the 'real' world to bridge the gap caused by the 'one' client.

    Great place to work!

    Business Analyst (Current Employee)
    Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsWorked with some very talented and knowledgeable employees both in Toronto and Ottawa. Enjoyed my work term with this company.

    ConsA few of the consultants on the project were not as knowledge as they should have been. This meant that other team members had to carry part of their load.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGreat projects to work on. One suggestion: slightly better matching of job skills to the job (only for those consultants that were not as talented/knowledgeable as I had expected).
