What was, is no longer
Manager (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB8 May 2013
I worked for CP for 15 years. It used to be a fantastic company. Since the hostile takeover last year however, new management has eliminated over 1/4 of the employee base and that does not include the additional great employees who jumped ship and are not being replaced either. Employees in the field seem to be doing ok. In corporate office, almost all are extremely over worked, stressed and pulled to breaking points. Extreme micro-management right from the top down with ridiculous new policies. Employees used to have autonomy, however now nobody can make a decision and it takes forever to get anything accomplished.

Salary is good, benefits and pension are excellent, but I would not recommend this company until the current management moves on and things settle down.
Pros
Nice colleagues, good pay, great benefit and pension
Cons
Top management with no care for employees, long hours, unrealistic expectations

Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Alberta13 December 2017
I have been working for 34 yrs, this place used to run like family but not anymore, as management is only only concern about investors. Employees are treated like slaves, no respect, day to day poor training for required jobs, I need to get out asap.. If you don't want to treat like prisoner, don't join this company. There is job discrimination as well. Management does not plan well and they are concern about protecting their own jobs so you can under stand how toxic environment is there.
Pros
Some benefits
Cons
Toxic Environment
