Top-heavy, imbalanced organizational structure; lack of leadership and effective performance management
Administrative (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB10 February 2014
A very top-heavy, protectionist organizational culture with myriad, redundant levels of upper management, few of which seem to take an active role in implementing recommendations, changes or suggestions. Upper management/leadership also seem reluctant to become involved with performance management, coaching or helping subordinates develop a clear career path. Divergent views, organizational change and conflicting messages create ambiguity and a culture of fear and uncertainty among low- and mid-level employees. This could be minimized were leadership to take a proactive approach to employee engagement, employee recognition, and internal communications

Great benefits but, depending on the manager, difficult to determine the correct or appropriate paths to professional development. HORRIBLE disability management and support for/accommodation of employee with disabilities/impairments.
Pros
Social committee, organizational development day with keynotes
Cons
HORRIBLE disability management and support for employees with disabilities/impairments.

The Most Enjoyable Part of the Job
Accounting Instructor (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB26 October 2017
I enjoy my current job as an Instructor, as this is very satisfying especially when the knowledge transformation translates to learning for many.

Since i have done adequate corporate training and have been acknowledged as effective communicator, I took on this role since the last two years.
Pros
Knowledge transformation
Cons
It is only a part time occupation
