Contract Work
SAP Consultant & Assistant to Project Lead (Former Employee), Markham, ONApril 8, 2016
Pros: Free Lunch catered by the client
Cons: No advance notice of contract termination
Contract was supposed to be 6 months but was actually less than 2 months and was given only minutes notice of termination because the client pushed out the go-live date which meant that fewer project team members were needed to complete the work- Salary only and no benefits

Great pay, awful management and work environment
LaboratoryTechnician (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONJuly 29, 2015
Pros: Good pay, good benefits
Cons: No training, no feedback, unfriendly staff
While the pay and benefits were amazing, this company requires its staff be "autonomous and not require much training". What this translates into is, 1) don't ask questions, 2) figure out the policies/procedures of your placement on your own, 3) if you can't figure it out on your own, you're not independent enough to work with us. Perhaps it's not the same in all locations, but I found other Calian employees to be very clique-y and unfriendly. This company also does not believe in feedback or follow-up.

Terrible company - Just a front company
nurse (Former Employee), petawawaMarch 3, 2015
Cons: as above .. everything
Really bad company. poor pay. brainwashed employees. they spend more time selling and bolstering the credentials of the company to each other and anyone that calls, than they do actually performing the duties they were hired to do!

basically look for work elsewhere. they are ripe with government funding but it doesn't trickle down to the professionals that get suckered into taking jobs.

Contractor for General Motors
Process Engineer (Former Employee), Oshawa, ONMarch 8, 2013
Pros: tried hard
Cons: really just a front company to allow gm to hire with no benefits.
Essentially a front company to allow General Motors to hire employees with out offering any benefits.
Calian tried their best to be something they weren't with monthly emails and meetings with managers. However, bottom line Calian just took GMs money, skimmed some money off and gave me my pay check.
