Ignorance - the upper management lacks common sense let know knowledge in the field they oversee. This leads to poor management of employees and misleading staff with poor directions.

    Advice to Management

    Hire/promote qualified individuals based on credentials as opposed to nepotism Focus on hiring knowledgeable HR employees. The CEO needs to turn his attention to internal affairs especially HR.

    I have been working at Metrolinx for less than a year

    Pros

    Company that is expanding a record speeds. Great to be part of the growth. Senior management is very laid back; hierarchy is not as apparent as it is in the bank.

    Cons

    Rates seem to be lower than at the bank.

    Advice to Management

    Increase rates for staff.
