    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

    Company has started some outside office events

    Cons

    Very poor Management skills, very hard to progress unless you are in the inner circle, no recognition for hard work and going beyond your job description. Almost everyone is trying to look for jobs elsewhere as morale is so low. Training has only been introduced recently, before that it was learn whatever you can by yourself. No sick pay

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees fair, spend more time helping those who progress, offer incentives
