Director, Investors Group (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB17 June 2017
Change was needed and the new CEO is providing it, but in a way that is damaging to company morale. Also, there is a lack opportunity to advance unless you live in Winnipeg.

Consultant (Former Employee) –  Barrie South, On24 May 2017
Considerable training and keeping up to date constantly, phone calls, preparing portfolios, client presentations and always on the go.
Management is very driven to achieve goals or exceed them.
A career where you must hit the ground running for certain.
Hardest part of the job were the hours required.
Most enjoyable part was the interaction with clients, coworkers and training were second to none.
