Micro Managing at all levels.
Project/Program Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB28 June 2018
This company does not focus on work safety. Micro managing starts at the top and trickles all the way down. Work / life balance is only something that is put into words but not play.

Regulatory Maturity trending high
Program & Projects Management (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB3 December 2017
Maturity trending high, AER executives want to do the right things. The strategy is clear and communicated, emphasis on execution is great. Need to improve the culture of feedback as there is a chronic level of triangulation and back talking which can become toxic and unhealthy.
Pros
Highly skilled resources
Cons
culture of back talking

Culture And Leadership challenges
Business Analyst (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB6 January 2016
The AER is a smart, fast, dynamic company that is making great strides in energy regulation. The work the company produces is top notch but the challenge with the AER is the culture and leadership.

The philosophy at the AER is to create a group culture with full participation, equality and collaboration. This is an excellent idea. What occurs in practice is unfortunately far from that. The leadership styles displayed at the AER are top down, directional, constrictive, not positive, blame based and confining.

Despite a great many number of talented, and exciting coworkers the leaders, managers and higher ups make working for the AER stifling.
Pros
Flex days and work life balance
Cons
Leadership and Culture
