Horrible Management (no career growth)
Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  North York, ON23 January 2017
Managers have very old-fashioned thinking and do not understand I.T. They are not very flexible when it comes to opinions and do not recognize achievements. A very corrupt hierarchy and lots of politics involved. People are not promoted based on merit but rather seniority and personal preferences.
