    Everyone is very trustworthy. You get to work at your own pace, and co-workers always help each other out. Also, the location is very convenient. It's always a different day, making the challenges more exciting.

    The archived tech instructions not up to date when installing software for clients. Sometimes working with irate clients that can effect your schedule with other clients.

    Pros

    Limited growth opportunities if you do not brown-nose.

    Cons

    Contract staff in a state of perpetual limbo- you will feel like a second class citizen despite the Regional values that are constantly extolled. Some colleagues have been on contact for too long (5+ years).

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to limit contract staff or convert them to full-time.
    More transparency in the hiring process.

  8. Repetitive work but good pay

    Pros

    the pay and the benefits are great! no complaints!

    Cons

    very repetitive work in my specific position so leaves zero room for creativity.
    they hire who they know even though they post their positions, chances are they have contacted who they want to fill the role, positions are posted because that is policy

    Advice to Management

    Go around and meet your employees, run annual x-mas parties, promote fairness and equity all throughout
