They work you hard, but fair.
Accounting Consultant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON13 September 2013
It is all about self-motivation and initiative-taking, perhaps a bit odd outside a sales position, but it works. There isn't micro-managing every tiny thing, it's "Here is a project. It needs to be done by x time". So if you like being able to schedule yourself and have the discipline to properly pace yourself, it is a great work environment. The work I was given and/or took on was challenging, interesting, and covered a lot of different aspects of the job (research, write-ups, analysis, clerical at times, meetings, presentations, lobbying, huge variety of things to do).

It was great. I was also offered any training I may have needed, without needing to fight for it, which is always a plus.

Note I worked internally and not on a sales side, which could be a vastly different experience.
Pros
Wide array of experiences to gain, really great supportive team environment
Cons
Occasional unpaid mandatory overtime

Its a high pressure job which gets boring sometimes as it requires to do same things constantly. However, the pay is decent and people are nice to work with. There is lots of overtime offered as well
