Hardest Part is also the fun part of the job...a personal choice.
Engineer (Current Employee) –  Laval, QC9 February 2018
Hardest part is balancing life and work. But if you are ok travelling, there is no problem! Project work is actually the best part. So, it is up to you to determine how you want to balance it all.

If family is mobile, it can greatly help.

Still just a number

Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON27 November 2017
Once there was a management change in 2016 the office culture and moral decreased significantly. I learned a lot from the company, but that is due to me being great at self-learning and not from training from others.
Pros
Free Lunches
Cons
Long Hours

Difficult workplace environment.
Project Procurement Manager (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB19 November 2017
The expectation is to go above and beyond but there is little appreciation when you do. Poor systems to manage your work. Management would rather lie to you than tell you the truth about the companies future work potential. They are very reluctant to give you the bad news.
Pros
Good work experience to be gained
Cons
Where do I start.
