Core services (Current Employee), Toronto, ONApril 18, 2015
Brillant minds working towards a common goal. Can be a lot of red tape to get things done. Functional silos and demanding client groups. High expectations, and high rewards.

Associate (Current Employee), Toronto, Ontario, CanadaFebruary 20, 2015
It has been a pleasure to work for an international company as it has been growing globally at a fast pace. It is important to see how the company is adjusting to changes and how they implement new processes. There has been a better focus on cross-training and streamlining amongst departments to improve accuracy and quality of the reporting. Creating strong partnerships has allowed me to have a better understanding of the business and deliver my objectives on time.
