Specialist (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 6 February 2017
High stress financial services company. Nice colleagues but difficult management. Worked many places before and since but never experienced this level of chaos. Improved my technical skills at the expense of my health and well-being. Management would actually yell at staff and/or vendors in meetings.
Introduced us to "Operating at the speed of trust" but didn't demonstrate those values. Director said they trust but also wanted evidence of overtime, train schedules, etc.
Very high turnover. I knew I made a mistake in going there in the first week. I toughed it out and eventually got to the point where I stayed at least six months so the technical recruiter that recommended me would be paid.
Able to work from home some days
Long hours, very high stress, no respect for work/life balance

Systems Engineer (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 9 November 2015
Without a doubt it was the worst place I have ever worked. There were extremely rigid rules on everything. Incidents in production were met with a huge overreaction than what is necessary. Middle management treated the staff poorly and actually called them "resources" to their face.
