waterloo is kind of in the middle of nowhere, not much to do during weekend
lack of good restaurant nearby

Advice to Management

    Pros

    Cool place, inspiring people, great facilities including gym, basketball and racket ball courts. Interesting events where you get a behind the scenes glimpse.

    Cons

    Stingy pay. Manager was a huge arrogant, sneaky mysogynist and pit women against each other. He knew which women to play to keep in back pocket and if another woman questioned him or bruised his massive ego he would run crying to a higher up woman whom he had wrapped around his finger. There are nice people there for sure but a few bad apples spoiling the culture.

    Advice to Management

    Stop taking this guy at face value, do your homework before making snap judgements.
