big, and boring
Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee) –  calgary1 August 2013
managers tried to make "fun games" at work to bring up the atmosphere,
but at lower level, you r just a number in such a big company.
people are nice to work with, and they can work without you with absolutely zero question asked.

majority of the staff are like family and great to work with the main draw back is management has VERY poor mentality
Customer Care Representative (Former Employee) –  wpg29 July 2013
if you are not a brown noser, there is no point working here.
management is very poor and needs to be re-educated or removed.
they expect more with no compensation or recognition
Pros
3 above average customer service reps
Cons
management very ignorant/all talk and no listening...there way or no way

Finance (Former Employee) –  Calgary21 March 2013
laying off all finance -accounting... then they posted jobs again

Used to be a great place to work
Worker (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB29 November 2012
Senior Management unqualified and disconnected from the market/industry. Laid-off employees last year and more are imminent (outsourcing to the US). They do not follow their Cornerstone Values, just words on the wall. Pride themselves on being family owned but don't act as such. Micro-manage employees. Expect increased results with decreased resources. Push till you break mentality. The atmosphere is very negative and unhealthy to be around. Pay is not competitive to the market. Used to be a great place to work. If Management was replaced it could again be a great to place to work.

Poor management, they cant make up their minds and lots, lots of politics.
DSR (Former Employee) –  Ottawa18 November 2012
I had to listen to stories that involved senior mgmt being stars all through training and when I got in the field found out it was an "old boys club" at the top and they were all essentially incompetent and discrimatory towards employees in a sneeky and under hande3d fashion. Those were the words of current top achievers in the field.
Cons
car allowance sucked, huge territory and they dragged me to milton whenever they felt like it.

Huge pressure to increase sales in a down market
District Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  British Columbia11 October 2012
Job culture had changed drastically in the past five years. Poor over-all employee moral as many employees have been laid-off as much of the internal transactions have been relocated to US head office. Remaining employees worry about loosing their jobs.
Pros
daily autonomy, customer relationships, travel
Cons
performance pressure, declining remuneration
