    I have been working at Maple Reinders full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good if you are motivated and ambitious. Good if you are willing to learn different skills. Great if you are willing to work across Canada. Good if you have a tough skin. Overall great office atmosphere, friendly and approachable staff, even at the Chief levels.

    Cons

    Motivated and ambitious people may get tired quickly of the hierarchy Senior staff - There's a lack of seasoned experts, its a very young company.

    Advice to Management

    Consider adding a few more matured, battle-scarred staff to even the pool of expertise.

    I worked at Maple Reinders full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    If you keep your head down and fall in line, you can earn mediocre pay for mediocre effort.

    Cons

    Politics trump good ideas, nepotism outweighs talent, promises are never delivered upon, and the status quo is the gold standard. Senior management has been the same group for over a decade.

    Advice to Management

    Let go.

    I have been working at Maple Reinders full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great company who treat you with respect and pay you fairly for your efforts.

    Cons

    Promotion from within is a draw back due to the old school mentality being promoted. Lots of policies that are meant to improve culture and employee satisfaction that are just ignored by the managers in charge. Also, there are some weak links who seem to be letting the team down who should probably be replaced.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure you enforce regular one to ones and put senior employees through some specialized motivation and management training.

    I worked at Maple Reinders full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    People are very nice, and down to earth. There is a good mix of people from all around the world. They do not micromanage.

    Cons

    There is a lack of mentoring through the company. The leadership doesn’t believe in the value of safety and their safety records reflect that.

    Advice to Management

    Start a mentoring program. Re-evaluate the cost of being unsafe. Reward hard work.

    I have been working at Maple Reinders full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are some good people to work with, sadly less than there used to be. CEO is a nice guy, but has trusted his top guys too much.

    Cons

    VERY high turnover, even in the higher ranks. Company has trouble deciding who they are, which means they have trouble succeeding on anything but the simplest projects. Low morale at nearly every level. Lack of experience at the higher levels. Management does not follow through on promises to staff. Management also does not seem to follow their own stated core values.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a path, stick to it. Get some experience on your leadership team. Stop changing titles every six months.
