Interesting work, supportive coworkers, well compensated
Transfer pricing intern (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJanuary 21, 2016
Overall a great work experience, the supervisors/bosses were supportive in teaching skills and training on the job. The culture is professional but relaxed, an environment where you feel comfortable approaching even the partners despite being a simple intern.

The work is interesting and fulfilling and there are multiple opportunities to learn a large range of skills, as well as room for career advancement. And it pays well.

Great place to work!

Not classy despite of how it wants to brand
Accountant (Current Employee), Mississauga, ONJanuary 7, 2016
Pros: Life balance
Cons: So many
Don't act classy, good at selective groups or individuals thus you would see some people gave high rating.
Job security is low but life balance is high that it may due to low management skills

Segregated company with inner 'class system'
manager (Former Employee), AlbertaJuly 30, 2015
Pros: Depends on where / business unit you are placed
Cons: a bit archaic HR systems and teams, class system, bland environments and messy
while there were many efforts put forth by each office to make for a better environment there was an obvious class system ranking people by job, location and business unit.

Many of the current and positive reviews are from the Eastern Provinces where the company was started, as you move West in Canada you find that the value is different and if you work for some business units you are ranked lower in priority - you don't want to get on with their bankruptcy team as they are the bottom of the pole and get MUCH less benefits. Yes, employees get different benefits - how class system based is that!

If you expect this to be a great place to work based on the awards... Some awards are BOUGHT or 'sponsored' so your best bet is to ask former employees for an inside scoop.

Productive and good place to be employed
Accounting Technician (Former Employee), Montague, PEJune 28, 2015
Pros: Flex hours, company get togethers
Cons: long hours during tax season
Depending on the time of year your day could be 7 hours during the summer to 12 hours during tax season, most employees were easy to get along with. The job was enjoyable and especially enjoyed the short summer days.
