      HATED this company

      Sep 18, 2020 - Proposal Coordinator in Toronto, ON
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      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
