      Pros

      Big company, good benefits, overall as a package is enticing

      Cons

      This company drives you to the ground. They expect you to work long hours, without overtime pay. The entire company is riddled with politics and terrible treatment to their employees. Managers micromanage, are constantly on vacation or golfing and upper management supports this behaviour. Upper management is not helpful at all and neither is HR at this company, they are running a gong show. The few people who are doing their job right don’t get rewarded and are put in awkward situations

      Pros

      A very good company overall. They do quality work and are professionally run. It is a stable company in an industry that has a lot of shaky companies. They have very good benefits, and the company leadership places a priority on being an employer of choice.

      Cons

      It can be a 'cliquey' environment, with some of the senior leaders favouring people who tell them what they want to hear. They've had 4 Presidents in the past 8 years - with the one from 8 years ago now president again.

      Pros

      - Large company. - Good benefits. - Lots of educational/learning opportunities.

      Cons

      - Pay is not competitive. - Little room to advance (have to wait for someone to retire or quit). - Communication amongst divisions is completely lacking. - Time spent with the company was overall a good experience except for senior management and their desire to put their own needs ahead of their employees. If you spend any amount of time there you will quickly realize that it's all about the profit at the expense of work/ilfe balance, pay, opportunites, etc. - Still an 'old boys club' company.

      Pros

      It was close to home, good benefits, very kind boss who gave credit where credit was due, simple work and work related programs.

      Cons

      A questionable co-worker (higher management) who went as far as sitting outside my home at night and was pushy about wanting to enter a romantic relationship. He silenced me from speaking with the manager by threatening my job and reputation.
