    Only Canadians are promoted to upper management.
    Huge amount of travel for Technical Specialists often leading to burn out.

    Continue to regionalize departments including IS.

    Pros

    Was given an excellent relocation package when when job moved to new location. Nice office and diverse work environment.

    Cons

    Limited advancement opportunties. Unable to establish growth with performance reviews.

    Advice to Management

    It would be awesome if steps for advancement were spelled out. You can work really hard and not know what management wants in order to gain promotion. Senior managment are great people but keep their distance from the worker bee empoyees. I would like to see senior management attend staff meetings for teambuilding. No company is perfect but their is hope for positive outcome here.

    Pros

    Many career options. Great people. Good pay. Everyone respects everyone.

    Cons

    Engineering jobs are not too technical.
    Hard to find the right department to get the right people you are looking for. However this is because the company is really big.

    I learned many new skills from working here. The people were absolutely helpful and the upper management was very supportive.

    Cubicles could have been set up better. I mean only one chair and no place for a visitor to sit. Speaker phone enabled for all cubicle users.
