    I have been working at Groundswell Group full-time

    Pros

    Company organizes lots of events

    Cons

    Best staff are leaving tired of politics and favoritism. Delivery leadership in Alberta lacks credibility, and chosen for their connection to executive. Groundswell deserves better

    Advice to Management

    Look into how leadership came to these positions

          Pros

          Convenient office close to downtown

          Cons

          Senior management arrogance puts them out of touch. BI leader lacks qualifications other than connections and delivery executive support

          Advice to Management

          Qualifications, not connections, used for promotions
