Senior Principal Consultant (Current Employee) – Halifax, NS – 26 April 2017
Good work environment, nice atmosphere and no bosses hanging over you. Everyone has a good work ethic and are willing to share their knowledge. Good work/life balance and excellent benefits, medical/dental.
The company provides training and allowances are available as a reimbursement once you have paid and completed your course/training. The most difficult part of the job depends on your assignment, upper management are invisible most of the time. Experience doesn't seem to have much value, hence lack of promotions, the salary is ok but it would be nice to have an increase at some point!
Great place to work if you are at the beginning of your career.
Excellent working environment and very good benefits, work life balance.
No opportunities for promotion. Inadequate compensation for vey skilled work force, unless you are senior management.
Come to work, not knowing whether you will leave at 5pm or 10pm. Peers are great, experienced although the team is across the world. Downtown Halifax is expensive to park, and traffic is terrible. I really enjoy the office, lots of natural light.
Pros Provides professional, responsive customer service to inbound client calls, assisting clients with their immediate financial needs. This role typically receives 70-80 calls per day/shift while being seated for the full shift facing a computer. Cons A minimum of one year of client service; preferably 2-3 years in one position.Some experience working in a service environment where recommending products and services and/or sharing information to meet client’s needs is routine. Some experience working in a sales environment where formal selling thresholds and targets are routine would be relevant.
Unpredictable. I had two offers, one with NTT and another contract job for 18 months with double hourly rate than NTT. i chose NTT as it's a full time permanent. I relocated from west coast to east for the job. To my surprise, i was told i will have to go after 9 months as there is no budget from client.
Technical Recruiter (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 17 December 2015
Fun workplace with young and ambitious crew, very intense environment but you learn something every day. Learned how to manage relationship on both sides: clients and candidates. Management is friendly and supportive, willing to help with everything at any time. The most enjoyable part of the job was someone's placement that everyone takes as his own achievement.

Working in NTT DATA is a totally different experience that you cannot get in working for a company. In NTT DATA you work with different clients who have different needs. In consultation it gives you more capabilities to solve more problems.
More experience in managing and solving different problems.
NTTData is great place to work as it has group of individuals who follow high degree of professionalism. A typical day at NTTData is engaging peers for problem resolution and provide status updates on the tasks assigned to the managers.
I consider myself an experienced, well traveled IT professional, I have worked across this country and US. Hours are rediculous when you are a senior consultant. No paid overtime. Working late every day. Working off hours. Don't know your schedule till cleint tells you when you work. Can't plan anything outside of work. High expectations. Management have no idea what work output employees are doing in Halifax office. Management and HR are puppets to client. No backbone whatsoever. Don't expect any support from management. Salary is ok, but there's no room whatso ever to grow. No bonuses. No raises. No ladder to climb... it doesn't exist no matter how good you are at your job. Might be fine if you are starting out and have never worked for a decent canadian company. Such a shame. I worked there 3 years. My first year bonus was a $20 gift certificate from Walmart. I can't highlight how bad the hours and worklife balance is working for their client in the US. Stay away from this place unless you are inexperienced and looking for a sweatshop mentality. I quit due to poor hours without a new job lined up. Imagine that. Then I had my first experience with HR dept in Halifax. What a bunch of idiots. They were very unprofessional. That's how bad this place is. Hoping there is a better company to work for in Halifax. People on my technical Halifax team are fine and ok to work with. Management are clueless. They stay quiet as long as the contract obligations are met. Client said THANKS once while I worked there. Expectations are not realistic. If you are employed elsewhere staymore... away from this place. Peace.less

I was zeroed out and let go because they needed to save money on the project I built. Accused me of something that everyone does and fired me. They were breaking even on the project but wanted a profit so they let the person with the highest salary go.
Horrible workplace. Good colleagues but bad management. Low salary that never rises with increasing responsibilities. Spotty training, sometimes almost non-existent. May be a good start for juniors but horrible for seniors.
On 24/7 call one week in three and expect no mercy if you miss even one call. No performance incentives, no salary changes, no bonuses.
This place is a glorified work-house. My review can't be negative enough.
Little time for life outside work. Bad compensation.
