a typical day at work is a straight forward do what you have do and get it done. what I learned is to have fun pay attention and do your job right. workplace culture learn about each culture I think its good for everyone to learn about each culture. the hardest part of the job is looking after your job and your stuff so you don't lose it or you don't mess up and lose your job. the most enjoyable part of the job is being with your employees and working.
Pros

Awesome Environmet & Great People To Work With
L1 Help Desk Analyst (Current Employee) –  Markham, ON22 January 2017
Awesome Environmet & Great People To Work With. A typical day at work primarily consists of troubleshooting hardware and software issues for clients remotely, and handling escalations if need be. Other responsibilities include making daily reports regarding customer satisfaction and following up if necessary. Everyone is extremely helpful to one another, and everyone has something unique they can contribute to the corporate environment. The management is extremely accommodating when it comes to scheduling and/or leaves for the employees. The hardest part of the job is when you're a new employee and you're about to take your very first call, but that is also what makes it the most enjoyable since there is always something new to learn every single day with potentially every client you come across with.
Pros
flexible hours, ability to work remotely, excellent training and management
Cons
low pay

Extremely slow and bearocratic
Senior Financial Analyst (Current Employee) –  Markham, ON20 January 2017
Great for development, but significant lack of work life balance. Management tries to push every last ounce out of you and the roles are draining/boring. Typical hours are 10 hours a day with the odd weekend of work required. Month end/quarter ends require weekend work and typically ~12 hours a day. Many reviews for data consumers with not enough actions coming out of reviews.
Pros
Learning opportunities, smart people
Cons
Extremely long hours

Service Desk Team Lead (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON13 January 2017
Exactly what you would expect of a giant company. Piles of bureaucratic processes, zero connection to the many layers of management above you...but they run like a machine.

Not worth the pay
IT Tech Rep/Email Team Support (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON7 January 2017
Work is really hard, but you wouldn't figure that out until you start because the pay will indicate your doing something very simple. However this company gives you a big badge to put on your resume.
Pros
Badge on Resume
Cons
Little pay for such hard work
