Uncertain Future
Service Desk Analyst (Current Employee) –  195 The West Mall22 June 2015
Began working here with many opportunities available, and a great amount of enthusiasm, however there is now a lack of leadership at the middle-management level which leaves many projects unfinished. Integration of the Nuclear team has created multiple management styles to conflict with no real resolution.

I love supporting the users that remain with the company, however the lack of recognition for the amount of work done is disheartening.
Pros
Office hours
Cons
Management is lacklustre

Automation Co-op Student (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB10 June 2015
I had great mentors there and made a few friends. For a summer engineering job, I got quite a bit of responsibility and learned things I never would have. However, I had started there during they're slow season and the reputation that the main office in Montreal got didn't help either.
