4-Month Cubicle Jockey
Technical Analyst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON13 October 2017
I was hired for a 4-month contract by CIBC Market Data Services to assist with their transition to a newer Windows platform and to assist with QA/Application Testing of their trading software. Unfortunately due to a lack of work and/or delays in the project inhibiting me to do my work I found myself requesting and being given very infrequent scripting, protocol analysis, and data collection work with frequent stints of idle time.
Pros
Salary, Great Co-Workers and Interns
Cons
Lack of Work, Stale Corporate Culture

Financial Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Regina, SK11 October 2017
A typical day at work would be participating in team huddles where everyone shares their ideas and opinions on how to better a situation. Live examples of situations faced and what are the ways to tackle issues. Development time is given to discuss future options to grow within the organization. Amazing people to work for!

Inspiring and Friendly Environment
Photographer Crew (Volunteer) (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB7 October 2017
While volunteering for this event, it was absolutely inspiring being able to look at the big picture and to see how much people (3000+) dedicated themselves to running for a cause. Running the same distance as each runner to take photos was tiring, but it felt as if I was running for a cause too. Seeing everyone cross the finish line proved to me that if you motivate yourself to do something, you will be rewarded. Seeing the smiles on everyone's face and seeing how united everyone was has inspired me to always show my love to those around me.
Pros
Free food, t-shirts, etc
Cons
Keeping up with runners
