    Pros

    Good company overall. People are nice.

    Cons

    Management is in too much of hurry to see results when implementing large new processes and procedures. These ROI take time. So, when results not fast enough, it changes all the people

    Advice to Management

    Be patient

    I have been working at GN Johnston Equipment Co. Ltd. full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    my job is interesting in itself, the work is challenging & varied. I work from home & deal directly with customers. The pay scale is competitive with decent benefits.

    Cons

    The management is dictatorial and adversarial. The corporate culture is arrogant, with little regard for customers' needs. Our internal departments have become silos, best to stay out of head office.

    Advice to Management

    Morale is at an all time low, time to step up to the plate & make this company truly customer centric again.
