Happy office environment with a lot of employees benefits (health and bonuses)
Finance Clerk (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONJuly 30, 2012
Busy office environment, work is stressful but still have time for fun; co-workers are so nice, caring and helpful during tight deadlines on report submission; management cares about the employees by conducting a yearly company summer outings or recreations. The hardest part of the job is claim preparation that needs focus or concentration to avoid – more... mistakes on the accuracy of amounts and attaching proper back-ups; accurate coding of all business transactions and entering them to the general ledger; tracking of account balance differences and bank accounts reconciliation. – less

Not a recommended choice for experienced contractors
Senior Planner (Former Employee), CalgaryJuly 4, 2012
Cons: inconsistant pay periods
In general, the work environment in the Calgary office is typical. For a junior applicant, this company is great for that. For EXPERIENCED and seseasoned planners, AVOID, especially if you are a contractor. IRREGULAR pay periods for contractors. This company is going on a monthly payment plan for contractors starting in September 2012. Beware of this.

Poor Management
employee (Current Employee), vancouverJune 14, 2012
Cons: low moral, no incentives, no recognition, ignorant managers, over worked
Poor management. Company cannot hire fast enough to cover the people leaving. Poor support from human resources, finance and strategic procurement are hideous. This is old boys network at its best. More obsolete computer programs than any company I know. . Why would anyone work for this company?

Culturally diverse, dynamic - T&D
Former (Former Employee), CalgaryMay 26, 2012
Pros: social events, networking and learning from peers
Cons: matrix organization (assigned to different projects) and high staff turnover
You will like a culturally diverse, knowledge company with people you can learn from (if you are not shy to ask)

Not for the career ambitious who want to quickly go up the ladder

Not for the not-hard-worker as expect to work on multiple projects at various phases (you can earn the same in other companies but with long lead projects)
