Job involved project planning and new systems deployment for clients in highly productive Healthcare Radiology Facilities. The team that I worked with was highly motivated and extremely easy to work with in this high pressure environment. I enjoyed new system setup, upgrade of OS and Strategic Software and executing Database test and production migrations at our MS SQL and Oracle client sites. Remote upgrades became more the norm and saved travel time and related costs. Which meant more involvement in extensive planning and resource coordination to execute successfully. Management was slow to acknowledge our skills, the number of projects which we were managing and the number components with which we interfaced to complete the upgrade at complex site.
Successful execution of upgrades with team and client coordination.
Saw a lack of management support in private and family life needs.
Verification & Validation Engineer (Current Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 7 February 2018
This is the type of job where you can find yourself doing the same thing 20 years down the line. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but I would like to have a clear career path, and that's not available here. You can be promoted within the company, but there's no official promotion path.
Flexible hours, open office, good benefits, RRSP matching
