    I worked at CPL Resources (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Job was not to difficult and relaxing. I was deployed in a company under CPL contract where the management was nice and the atmosphere overall very good.

    Cons

    Major problems with the correctness of payments, or the lack thereof. A lot of very sloppy mistakes. All I can say is that as long as you check your salary every week and make sure that what you get paid is correct, you should be fine.

    Advice to Management

    Complete overhaul of your payroll department and streamline internal communication between departments better.

    I worked at CPL Resources full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good working atmosphere. Very supportive management. There is a great sense of camaraderie between all the staff. Great place to work.

    Cons

    Salaries could ideally be better. They do seem to be a bit below market rates.

    Advice to Management

    Management do a good job. There could potentially be more emphasis on phone time and KPIs. If you are self motivated you will do very well in CPL as they will give you all the support you need.
