    Pros

    My coworkers were wonderful people. The pay was very decent for the position I was filling. The company itself is successful and respected.

    Cons

    Direct employer made my job impossible and miserable. I was made to cry almost everyday. Due to their attitude and unwillingness to work well with others, I was told that they eliminated my position after I quit instead of finding a replacement. The position was a direct support position for a very high level employee of the company. I had witnessed and heard of this person making other employees cry in the office for no good (or work related) reason. Workplace abuse is not something I had ever experienced before, and I have always been a very successful, quick learner in every position I've been in. But at Permasteelisa North America, after working in similar positions in office settings for 10 years, I honestly have to say my direct employer made this job the worst working experience of my life.

    Advice to Management

    Replace your high level employees with those who are more capable of working well with others. Hire people with experience working with extremely difficult people. Discipline higher level employees when they are mistreating lower level employees. Workplace abuse is never anything that should be tolerated.

    Pros

    This has been a great company to work for and has helped me immensely in the construction and curtain wall industries. A great company to work for if you are looking to grow from within.

    Cons

    Job can be stressful at times but is to be expected with any similar type of position.

    Pros

    Great people. Great projects. Senior management is very knowledgeable about the industry and latest technologies. They commit resources to train employees and allow them to learn and get exposure to interesting and challenging projects right from the start.

    Cons

    Poor communication of overall company vision. They are the best at what they do but there is no celebration of this vision within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within, there are great resources in place that can be leveraged to your advantage. You have a great number of passionate people on board.
