Amazing Experience
Environment Health and Safety (EHS) Specialist (Former Employee) –  Waterloo, ON7 October 2015
Working for a global company and being a part of the corporate structure taught me key skills I can take with me. No room for people to be creative, out of the box thinking was frowned upon. To much of a dictatorship with senior leaders no imput from employees.
Pros
Excellent pay, benefits.
Cons
No room for growth, no communication

Good corporate Culture
Manager (Former Employee) –  Waterloo, ON15 September 2015
Great pace to work at. Too bad company is downsizing for years. Everybody enjoy working there, lots of innovative ideas, many collaborative works.

few are very critical and poisonous that make things ugly. Some Managers doesn't take action on them, play liberal. But overall a Happy place to work.
