    Good colleagues and 8 hours working day. Paid vacation after specific period of time. Sometimes free lunches and cakes at birthday sometimes.

    I have been working at CIBT full-time

    Pros

    I have a job and make a competitive wage

    Cons

    Expensive family insurance which isn't very good- high co-pays doesn't cover a lot, employees are over worked across the board, not interested in boosting employee morale, only allow 2 employees off at a time-nationwide, which encourages lots of call outs making it harder to function.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees and watch your business take off. Overwork your employees and lose clients due to bad service.

    Pros

    Benefits were better then some of my employers but that it.

    Cons

    Think twice about accepting a postion with CIBT. As a former member of management you will just be another number to them and they will work you to the bone without giving you a single thank you. They thank good hard working staff by giving them more work to do. They stress to you that you need to work 8 hours but give you a 10 hour work load and expect everything done and done correctly at the end of your 8 hour shift.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your staff better and maybe you will not be disliked by every government agency that you work with.
