Procurement Department Head (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 22 August 2016
CoSyn is a good employer, but due to economic conditions have had to downsize by cutting entire departments. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at CoSyn and am leaving purely because of the economic conditions.

Project Controller (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 7 August 2016
Originally a great place to work with a friendly nurturing environment. After corporate buyout, it became mired in administrative red-tape and a "global vision" that was counter-productive and impersonal.
Accounting Assistant (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 23 June 2016
10 years ago Cosyn technology was very busy. the day was going to fast and did worked overtime almost everything week end. The work as slowed down since 2014 . When i start a Cosyn I had great training, but in 2011 when did get bought out by another engineering company we change computer system and no training was provide to me. I learn all by my self. I did enjoyed processing EFT payment and issue cheque the people were great.
Project Assistant (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 29 March 2016
Each day is different. Some days busy some days not as busy. I have learned a lot about engineering within six different disciplines. I enjoy meeting so many people and building great work relationships with them. The hardest part of the job is learning the terminology and some of the processes.
Enjoyable place to work, with supportive management and colleagues.
Piping Discipline Lead / Senior Piping Designer (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 5 October 2015
Decent amount of red tape and politics which is expected of a big company. The most enjoyable part of the job was working alongside my colleagues. There was always variety in what I did each day which always makes a day challenging and exciting.
Project Assistant (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 16 October 2014
CoSyn is an amazing place to work. I have the opportunity to work with people from all over the world, and learn about many different cultures. The most enjoyable part of the job is the sense of accomplishment when a project is successfully completed. I have learned many skills and attended many training sessions. The downsides to the job are very long hours, leading to a poor work/life balance, and being managed by two separate global companies that don't always agree on policies.
Fast paced work environment which allows the opportunity to learn and grow.
Project Assistant (Current Employee) – Edmonton, Alberta – 18 February 2013
Most days include engineering meetings such as reviews on engineering work packages, schedule, and project updates. Although I haven’t taken a course in engineering terminology I have become very familiar with the different terms, acronyms, and abbreviations. Management is very engaged with the day-to-day activities of their staff and is always willing to help. This is also the culture of the staff. The hardest part of the job would have to be staying on schedule as schedule is key to every projects success. The most enjoyable part of the job would have to be working with such dynamic and multicultural project terms.
