Nice workplace but challenging
Sr. Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON26 September 2017
Challenging to gain information from peers. Unstable processes.
Friendly management, awful worklife balance. Lessons learned, one needs to be more firm and express their knowledge and skills to be valued as a team player.

Supportive Management Team
Financial Analyst (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON30 January 2017
Management team is very supportive and approachable. Work is always really busy for me especially because we are short staffed (manager and Senior Analyst left during the busiest time last year).

The hardest part of the job is to trying to do two people's job, having to work overtime everyday and not having work-life balance.

The best part of the job is the learning opportunity. Since we are short staffed, management team relies on my work a lot. Therefore, i get an opportunity to prove myself as well as work closely with the senior management team.

The most enjoyable part of the job is taking new projects and leading it. The tight deadlines motivates think more efficiently and the challenge brings the best in me.
Pros
Good Benefits
Cons
Long hours
