High turn over rate for a reason
Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 29 January 2017
This company has very good benefits and some nice perks (including free lunch and access to booking corporate condos), however it appears the reason they offer so many perks is because they can't keep staff otherwise. It seemed every week I worked there people were quitting and new people getting hired. They just cannot retain staff.
Management is extremely difficult to talk to - there is little to no support across most departments. The mentality of the company is very old school. I would say it is not a good place to work for younger people (millenials). There is a huge disconnect between executive team members and all other staff. They really don't make an effort to get to know their employees on a personal level. There are some really great people working there however upper management does no seem to recognize their talent and those people move on.
I think if a company knows how to make their staff feel valued and empowered, they do not need to offer perks such as free lunch in order to try and keep them.
Avoid working here at all costs, especially if you are a younger person looking to advance their career. The environment is very stuffy to work in and they are not progressive in their work style at all. Not flexible on hours, working remotely, etc. either.
Terrible management, staff is undervalued, stuffy environment
