Pros

The only reason someone would want to work for ATCO is money. Plain and simple. And in speaking to the money, it's not even that great. We are talking middle of the pack, never an industry leader. Always a follower and as of late, there are zero perks. I mean nothing. No external health subsidy (ie. gym membership), no flex time, no telecommuting, no nothing. Standard 3 weeks vacation to start and no increase until 8 years in. As recognition, we got a freaking ugly yellow jacket for the 75th anniversary of the company. The place just smacks of discontent.

Cons

Brutal management and no training whatsoever. They throw you in the deep end and expect you to swim.

Advice to Management

Train people.

    Pros

    They will give you a good start to get into the industry but they are only a stepping stone to real work.

    Cons

    The management are completely insular, they don't share any but the vaguest of goals for the company. There is absolutely no positive feedback and they make you feel like everythign you do is worthless. They also allow cliques to be formed in positions so that is can be difficult to be a team player.

    Advice to Management

    TALK TO THE PEOPLE!!! Work hard to show people you care (fake it even) give feedback on projects completed. Respect that people on the bottom make you look good or bad...

    Pros

    They seem to care about you. Hourly wage much better than many entry levels.

    Cons

    Never knew quite who was in charge - management seems to be making it up as they go along
