Not a place to build a career
Corporate (Former Employee), ScarboroughMarch 24, 2015
Pros: Long company history
Cons: High turnover, low morale, mistrust
Can be a very good employer and corporate employees support each under very difficult situations. Genuine concern for well being between colleagues' and good intentioned line managers. Challenging office location for commuting. Collaborative and inclusive environment being promoted by management is in direct conflict with their actions. Very high employee turnover rate and low morale. HR was self-serving and unprofessional relationship with senior management led to an atmosphere of considerable mistrust. Everyone 'on pins and needles'. Eliminating HR role has led to marginal improvement however, continued low morale. Very limited career opportunities for such a large organization.

Losing their way
CSG Employee (Former Employee), CSG ScarboroughMarch 3, 2015
Pros: colleagues
Cons: weak leadership
Very toxic environment. Leadership demonstrates very little integrity and considerable infighting amongst the senior managers. Salaries are subjective and unbalanced. No concern for career development. Co-workers are amiable, talented and desire change to improve environment. More professionalism is needed from leadership consistent with mission.

Day to Day it is a good place to work
Project Manager (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONNovember 13, 2012
Over all this is a good company to work for. There are many 15 year plus employees so getting into that 'club' seems to be difficult. Room for advancement is flat, it is a project driven model.
