Project Assistant (Current Employee), Edmonton, AB – October 16, 2014
Pros: the people.
Cons: long hours, few advancement opportunities.
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.

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.
