Good for gaining experience
IT specialist (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ONSeptember 25, 2015
Good place to work for few years to gain experience in desired field, possibly travel and experience different industries in different geographies.
However, be prepared to work very long hours under lot of project deadline pressure.
Consulting culture in Spartan... Sink or swim, So one project you could be a hero, the next you will be a zero and a candid for dismissal.

Most employees leave after 1 to 3 years.
Pros
gain expeirence
Cons
everything else is less than ideal

Accenture is more concerned in numbers than people.

Worked with the firm for 12 years and its all about numbers. Good to learn but management only cares about the bottom line.

Learning - by yourself.

Nice place to work-sometimes stressful
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Fredericton, NBAugust 21, 2015
taking 100+ inbound calls for natural gas-billing, scheduling, setting up accounts-setting up technical appointments. I leaned to be fast efficient and thorough. Hardest part of job was the irate callers. Enjoyable part of the day was knowing you had put 110% into your work and helped people.

ok
Admin (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC, CanadaMay 17, 2015
Only had one assignment with them so no comment if there is other assignments available. Time sheets were entered electronically which is sometimes good depending if there is no technical issues. Has training sessions online for you to complete. Did not realize how international this company was until I was accepted into the role. Staff are ok. There is monthly session review with the manager to assess your job performance but these are super easy to fill out. There are training sessions prior to your start of beginning your job but work happens and these are useful. Overall, ok, but once you leave this company, you are unable to return. Heard this has happened to a number of other temporary employees as well.

This was a 2-year project-specific temporary assignment.
Project Secretary (Former Employee) –  Calgary, ABMay 8, 2015
I spent 2 years at Colt working as Project Administrator for a specific project. This was a temporary assignment. A typical day could include meeting organization and attendance, word processing, creation of dual filing system, distribution of both documents and drawings, maintaining document control in Cyberdocs, supervision of one assistant and ultimately archiving of entire project.

I found my co-workers to be extremely helpful and especially enjoyed my Project Manager who was very professional and assisted me at any time I needed. The hardest part of the job was the commute.
Pros
Working with an excellent Project Manager
Cons
Very long commute

Stressful envirmoent that demands to much of employees
Customer Service Rep (Current Employee) –  burnabyApril 20, 2015
The company asks to much of employees and doesn't give enough. With no benefits but a pay percentage on your wage it is not enough. I am employed as casual but have over 40hr per week. They are not flexible, they do not consider individuals, you are one in many and its not a personal experiences
