Manager (Former Employee) –  Calgary, ABJanuary 12, 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.

Let me OUT!
Event Coordinator/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ONSeptember 19, 2012
Worked in the L&D department. Contract job. Seems to be a lot of contract jobs and not enough perm.

I was micro managed. Trained by a young rude person. Left the job after 6 weeks.

It all depends on who your manager is. I hear others are happy in different departments.
Pros
good pay
Cons
poor management
