    I have been working at ATCO full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work is fairly predictable and stable in terms of timing and output requirments
    the benefits package is generous and flexible
    While fairly traditional, the company is moving towards a more modern workplace
    There seems to be no gender discrimination based on what I can observe (ie. several females involved in upper management, females are often promoted, etc.)

    Cons

    The company is fairly formal and traditional. Casual Fridays don't exist within ATCO group, however do exist at some subsidiaries.
    The company has recently decided to move out of the downtown core, which has angered/upset several current employees. The new location is new Mount Royal University.
