Growth Opportunities limited
Engineer (Current Employee), Calgary, ABAugust 6, 2014
Pros: benifits, salary
Cons: no growth opportunities
The salary at newalta is above average and the benifits are great. However, professional growth opportunities are limited if none existance. People are typically picked for job advance as there is no system to apply for job openings. These people typically are part of the "buddy buddy" system or yes men that will do what is told rather than what is right to get a job completed in a safe manner.

Good pay and benefits offset poor culture
Director (Former Employee), Burlington, ONMay 8, 2013
They pay quite reasonably likely due to the need to offset a poor top down run culture. Management still tries to run the company as if it is a small start up and organization has outgrown this management style
