    Pros

    Lots of diverse work experience, if you want it.

    Cons

    Top heavy, company is growing, but mainly at the top. Lots of hiring of Principal level people, not allowing for the growth of the people who have been with the company for a long time. Lots of chiefs, few Indians

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let the walls between offices grow, or it will eventually erode the company you have built.

    Okay To Work For

    Pros

    Good benefits and good opportunity to grow within company.

    Cons

    Too much micromanagement. It`s to the point where you can`t even make your own schedule; they do it for you and you have to do it when they tell you. The micro-management even goes as far as to state that you must have your lunch between noon and 1pm unless approved. Also, overtime must be approved as well otherwise it`s not allowed. It`s crazy. This is consulting; not a government agency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please, enough of the micro-management! It`s oppressive and insufferable and creates an intimidating and uncomfortable work environment.

    Pros

    Great benefits, work-life balance and great support from the Vancouver and Markham office.

    The regional office manager was a great mentor to me, despite the activities that went on at this office.

    Cons

    Extremely unprofessional (i.e. staff BBQs + lots of drinking, going away party that consisted of a male stripper, my immediate supervisor having sex with a co-worker, sometimes at work).

    A couple of the project managers were terrible mentors - very little to no support from them. It got to the point where I decided to report and support the regional office manager, b/c he was the only one that would assign work to me. Despite everything else, the majority of my co-workers (junior scientists / engineers) were pleasant to work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need better leaders!
