    management has no vision if you're in back office, don't even dream of going to middle or front- gl bonus is always a huge upset- same excuse, cost cutting, tough yr work ethic across the board is terrible

    Pros

    Internal innovations are strongly pushed along with vba. Creating your own solutions to problems is very rewarding in a MacGyver esque sort of way.

    Cons

    Acclimate to the culture or be an outsider. French will be spoken so the quicker you learn the better off you will be

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for the time and the constant turnover. Thank you for your mixed communications. Thank you for the anonymous surveys that could no way make anyone feel like they were anonymous
