    Pros

    Good colleagues, good training and learning. Stable outlook.

    Micro management. Old fashioned leadership. No option for hybrid work. Management committee constantly low balling employees on salary. Good talent always leaves. Management doesn’t care about attrition. Many people will leave here for a place with better work life balance (hybrid options).

    Pros

    - Large company. - Economically very stable/diverse - Large resource pool with plenty of movement options available laterally and vertically within the company -Stock purchasing plan is very solid, however takes the place of an RRSP matching plan

    Cons

    - Low starting wages and only "time based progression" promote quick turnover. My onboarding focal outright lied to me about the progression schedule. - No RRSP benefits - Health benefits package is sub par at best compared to companies of similar size. - Not willing to spend money up front to prevent more work/cost down the line (Construct Now Repair Later)
