Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 10 April 2017
constant change was a challenge and always lots of uncertainty in the future of the company. Seemed like this was business as usual to the folks that were still there after many cost cutting initiatives.

A good company to work for. Just to invest on their employees by provide more training and courses. Also the company needs to provide opportunity for employees to grow so that they can make a difference.
Senior Infrastructure Program Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 28 December 2016
Workload is minimal. Office timings are great. Co-Workers are terrific. No reward for awesome performance and no penalty for non performance. Don't expect promotions. Salary increases (if any) are minimal.
A great company shrinking by selling off assets and offshoring most jobs.
Manager ITO Service Delivery (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 14 October 2016
It was a pretty good place to work, but in this economic climate or with the current Management is shrinking rapidly. Over 56,000 laid off while I was there and over 33,000 announced. The grass is not always greener, but all signs point to bad times ahead for people in higher cost areas such as North and South America, Europe, Australia and parts of Asia. If you are in India, Costa Rica or the Philippines you should be alright. Also, simple tasks take forever to accomplish now due to multiple layers of process and approval. The spectre of layoffs over the past 6 years have robbed excellent people of motivation and caring anymore. Most are just waiting for the package.
I don't know anymore
The spectre of layoffs over the past 6 years has killed motivation.
Customer Project / Program Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 2 September 2016
Generally good experience. Worked with great clients. Not pleased with the fact that I was laid off. The corporation is more concerned about stockholder value that loyalty -- but I suppose that is the way of the world these days. I had extremely good co-workers and a lot of flexibility in my work arrangement. I enjoyed the travel and had excellent managers and colleagues.

Good work environment and learning opportunities. Co-workers are professional and cooperative. The hardest part is new contracts are coming frequently and need to support with minimum training. The enjoyable part is good working environment.
