    Awesome company

    Operations Manager (Current Employee)
    Burnaby, BC (Canada)

    ProsHas a good culture, good benefits, excellent work life balance supported by a great group of people to be working with. Encourages challenging the norm.

    ConsInternal discussions are tough, making decision making more complex and slow. Not surprising for any large organization.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage more autonomy within a budgetary framework to make decisions, including employee hiring, where to spend $'s, etc.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Work-life balance is good; everything else, bellow average when compared to competitors, especially pay and promotions

    Business Analyst (Current Employee)
    Vancouver, BC (Canada)

    ProsWorking from home helps us balance work and life activities; one ends up being more productive in both worlds. Very tolerant environment to visible minorities and others.

    ConsPay has become substandard. Top performers in our team haven't had a raise in years, not even for increased cost of living / inflation. No wonder, when we have 1/3 of he company in the third world countries. Promotions are based on who you know, not what you know.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCheck your management team; some of them were not cut for managers, nor have they sufficient skills and education for it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
