Full time employment. Very busy position. A typical day was spent doing computer work reviewing various and preparing contracts. The hardest part was way too much work as the company could not keep Managers.

Working in a courthouse was educational.

Not enough help.

Buyer, Projects (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB7 May 2017
- Rewarding work place if you are willing to commit and to take and active role.
- Disciplines can tend to work in siloes with no strong effort from management to encourage increased collaborative work.

Overall good company to work for, when they have projects.
Most people are nice to work with, and work can be enjoyable.
When they do not have projects, and work is reduced, it is a different story!

Terrible, unqualified managers who cover up their ineptitude by pushing staff to do their job. Frequent reminders that the job market is sparse.
Scientist (Former Employee) –  Canada25 March 2017
The compensation for the hours worked and stress is very low. Staff is under stress as they are reminded constantly that they are lucky to have a job. Totally unqualified managers with lowest ethics I have ever encountered. Learned nothing and conversely had management consistently take credit for the staff's personal work.
Coworkers are amazing but underappreciated. Often they hire entry level workers that they can abuse and don't know any better as they have never worked at a reputable company before.

Maybe other departments are better but mine was abysmal.
Pros
None
Cons
Lots

No training or real safety
