Worked there for nearly 5 years, great bunch of people initially and on the ground with clients and projects, but recently, the last year or so it seems to have lost focus and touch with many employees, the economy in Alberta means they are letting many good people go, which has the knock on impact of hitting service levels and capabilities for their customer base and dropping staff moral to a rock bottom, now many senior & key technical people have moved on or are looking to move due to lack of job security with LVS especially in Calgary.
Its a shame the whole, positive can do vibe of the company changed so rapidy with recent new management and major internal re orgs that put a halt on many peoples career aspirations and plans, even before the recession, with this now impacting on staff and taking many months to deliver on internally, I would not recommend LVS as an employer of choice any more.
I foresee LVS will also need to change their business model, moving away from one of their prior key strengths in the market, maintaining a permanent staff on which they could rapidly pull for customer needs to an increase of contract employees for customer specific projects as they win business in the future, with little difference from "the other guy", they will need to compete more on price alone, as opposed to capability to deliver (which has been much eroded with recent major staff reductions) and they then will have to compete for the contractors out there too.
Good group of smart people, great xmas event, good work life balance and package
Loosing direction, new management brought in from outside lacks ethics and compassion
