Need to treat employees better
IT Operations (Current Employee) –  London, OntarioSeptember 8, 2015
As with most companies, management like to stick their head in the sand as to be blind to problems that run rampant.

Policies and procedures are a joke as trying to enforce them only result in parties going around you and escalating until they get someone to approve their "exception".

There are some truly smart people who ant to do the right thing but weak management, poor processes, unwillingness to address fundamentals (i.e. hiring more resources instead of just making the current ones put in more hours) and other cultural problems (i.e. swearing at the front line triagers or calling someone out in front of everyone you can think of) really hamper Autodata.

Its unfortunate because there is potential here if you believe the "we are going to change" message.
Pros
Allowed to go for small walks, coworkers often want to do the right thing, ability to work from home on rare occassion (with 24 hrs notice), fair pay
Cons
On call hours are brutal, company doesn't take advisement of technical staff, sales team sells unrealistic timelines, poor culture

Full I.T. web based project management
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  London, ONDecember 29, 2013
Working on delivering I.T. projects for the clients and meeting their requirements and timelines.
It is a full cycle of software development and project management.

This job requires a technical background and a lot of communication and management skills as it involves a lot of stakeholders and third parties across the country and across the borders

The hardest part is to keep projects on track with all challenges that the project may face and to meet timelines
Pros
fast paced environment, one team feeling, employees and management are empowered
Cons
running multiple projects to be delivered within a short time may affect qualities sometimes
