    Good company and good benefits, could improve work-life balance

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - good health benefits and RRSP matching, options for shares, etc - focus on training and development (access to a free online university), internal training organized regularly - large company so lots of room for growth and movement within the organization - in the sales jobs there is lots of room to grow in terms of salary, but it does take a long time to get there

    Cons

    - upper management is very male dominant, a bit of a 'boys club' - the work life balance in certain roles seems to be quite poor not overly generous with holiday time - salary and compensation for things like a car allowance (when relevant) have not kept up with inflation and the very high cost of living in Vancouver
