Long hours, cookie cutter approach, management cliques
Manager (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB12 January 2013
Does not value diversity of thought and opinion, the need to be in the good books rather than do great work is prevalent for this company. Not brave or doing anything new or cutting edge.

On the plus side, very well run administration.

I didn't like the culture here or the team a lot so I didn't remain too long when another opportunity came up. Was concerned with working weekends without pay or lieu time so I moved on.
