Decent Company to Work For
Facilities Assistant (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC9 June 2016

The company does an overall great job of keeping staff moral with biweekly donut sessions and monthly pub nights paid for.

Cycles through staff

Terrible Management, Unclear Vision, Sinking Ship
Business Development / Marketing Department (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC24 November 2015
This company does not care about it's employees!
Since being brought on the company has fired half it's workforce. Unless the firing is in mass they put employees on "working notice" so they do not have to pay out severance.
The more they fire the more they expect others to take on even though they are already stretched to the max.
As a project engineer you have to meet a minimum of 90-93% reimbursable - leaving you only 1.6hrs a week to answer emails or do your timesheet.
The accounting software is a joke and bills are not getting paid (some take over a year to get paid!). The accounting team is understaffed.
The BD Director was let go and never replaced leaving the team without a leader and with no clear direction and the wrong people in charge. The work - if there is any - demands can be unreal and you are expected to be reachable at any time.
There is no mentorship - you either sink or swim when you start - and no room for growth. Everyday you hear someone is being put on working notice.
The company can't win local work because it has cut so much of it's staff. The company is commodities based regardless of the falling commodities market.
DO NOT WORK HERE!!!!!
Pros
Nice team members
Cons
High turn-over, overworked employees, depressing work environment, management hides in their offices, lack of communication, no clear goals or visions for the company, everyone works for individual growth and will stab you in the back if you are not careful, lack of HR policies, unskilled and unqualified people in management roles

You're only full time if there's a project budget for your hours
Full-time salaried employee - HAH! (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB18 June 2015
great flexible hours if you have a budget for your work,
Co-workers are wonderful there but staff turnover is high,
Some of the managers are great to work with, but there are some managers that should not be in their positions,
Company spokesperson during coffee talk meetings is an unrealistic visionary and needs to get "real",
Pros
Flexible work hours
Cons
Poor morale within company, You're only needed if there's sufficient project budget for your hours, Company spokesperson has great visions for future work but is unrealistic

Regular office hour from 8 am to 5 pm, but we work one hour more to get day off on every alternative Friday.
