    I worked at Geosoft full-time


    This company valued work life balance (maybe even a little too much, a lot of people "worked" from home fridays). I enjoyed my time here and learned more than I have at all my other jobs combined. The people were all friendly, the year end galas and other events the social committee planned were fun.


    Like another of the commentators here mentioned. The management, while mostly great, does have some issues. Certain VP's didn't really seem to see their staff as people, and instead saw them as resources. There used to be a culture of innovation, but that started going downhill around the same time the mining sector did.

    Advice to Management

    I know this kept coming up on the talent map surveys, but I'm not you know what open communication means. It'd be nice to know what's happening with your own job for example.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Geosoft (Toronto, ON (Canada)).


    0) Had my resume published on a job site 1) Received an email from the HR department setting up time for a telephone interview. 2) During the telephone interview answered some generic questions about my experience and some situations. 3) Got an email inviting me to the face-to-face interview. 4) Attended the interview with hiring manager and team lead. Discussed specific questions pertaining my work, experience and critical thinking skills. 5) Was invited to a second interview where the manager talked about the company, the work that will have to be done and asked me to describe examples of work and situations that would match the challenges that they are facing. 6) Few days later received an offer.
