Fun staff
Small Business Manager (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON8 October 2017
Excellent staff to bond with, we all share the same uncertainty of our jobs. Its sad that HO knowingly kept for years, long term demoralizing managers simply because of their sonority. Most had zero education regarding staff management, and developed attitudes towards anyone new, that may pose a threat to them. Happily , HO has seen the light due to completion, has interviewed all staff across Canada, with their preverbal promise there will be no reprisal. They have totally purged all uneducated aggressive demoralizing managers of late. Who knows is next!
Pros
Branch Staff
Cons
Long term managers with no education holding onto old school demorizing attitudes.

Big Employer
Commercial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB4 October 2017
Able to manage own schedule a bit. Learned a lot about commercial business finance from analyzing their financial statements. Hardest part of the job was feeling like you forgot something all the time or leaving for the day and having a panic attack feeling like you forgot something but that may be the affect of a bad manager. Enjoy helping people and learning about their businesses.
Pros
Learning. Pay. Big company.
Cons
Managers being derrogatory.
