Project Manager, NTA Projects (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, ABJune 24, 2016
Good work culture, nice and helpful co workers, confused management (probably because of accelerated coal fleet shutdown). sometimes it is too stressful to meet the deadline of deliverable. Good part is appreciation after successful completion of task.
Pros
Reasonably good compensation package
Cons
Long drive back & forth from City, no salary revise in three years

Previous Employee (Former Employee) –  Calgary, ABMarch 20, 2016
There are millions of Companies out there, don't waste your time applying here. Not worth the energy, nobody appreciates your hard work. You have to suck-up in order to move ahead. Too many moody women.
Pros
Free tea
Cons
Negative dysfunctional environment

Pros
Geat co-workers
Cons
no money in the budgets to work with

Human Resources Analyst (Former Employee) –  Calgary, ABDecember 7, 2014
In my opinion, if you have experience, you will move forward quickly, but they ask for more experience than job actually needs. Succession planning is terrible as they promote the teachers pet and not the best employee. Too many specialist, not enough leaders
