poor management, Lower Pay, keep throwing more work but not increment of Pay even 0.5% of year.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Policies and procedures are a joke as trying to enforce them only result in parties going around you and escalating until they get someone to approve their "exception". Always Ridiculous timelines, PM are big Joke, un educated Project Managers, All are politics. keep throwing ball to lower level. All Big talk and show up, Good place to learn but if you are established in your career you will soon realize you made a wrong turn. keep switching your work to get you busy and pointing you wrong directions. after 5 years of effort company don't care about employee.

Pros

Free lunch, Yearly events.

Cons

Poor Management, Not following any process

Poor corporate culture and disconnect between workers and management.

A typical day is coming in, sitting at your computer and working on whatever fires happened over night, or playing catch up do to a work load coming in from a team in a different part of the world. Management has changed so much from when they first worked on Saskatoon St. to now being in the Bell building. There is so much cognitive dissonance and disconnect between management and workers. Much of the decisions have to go up the chain, so instead of going directly to the most important decision maker, it goes between each level of management. It seems like a friendly and open environment, but often see and hear gossip during lunch and while walking by on workers screens via the instant message systems. I found the most difficult part of the job to be just showing up, every year it got more and more difficult to justify putting in so much effort for so little reward and no appreciation.

Pros

Free lunches, Work from home

Cons

long hours, little appreciation, offers cheap lunches over fair pay and benefits.

at least you get a free breakfast every month

High Turnover, nice people, pigeon-holing people into roles they are not meant for. management is .....interesting to say the least....For a company that says they deal with data, they don't really analyze it.....I'd pass

Stressful unappreciated

Stressful unappreciated, no place for growth. Senior Leaders Changing causing discomfort in the ranks. people have worked here for years and quit for the same reason, very few of the older team members stay. Avoid this place.

Very Stressful

very stressful emotionally, like most places they just care about getting the job out ASAP and dont care about quality or compensating employees well enough.

Middle management tries but is unsuccessful and not supported

Lots of promises from executive leadership but very few are followed through upon. Job security and advancement is undefined. No clear strategy communicated to the employees.

Low Pay for High Expectation of work

This Job seemed more promising than it actually turned out to be. Management has high expectations from employees but when it comes time for proper compensation they fall far short of what is acceptable for the level of work required. They will straight up lie to you about receiving raises or the raises will fall far short of what is required to make this job worth coming in day in and day out. While they fail to meet your expectations they expect you to meet their always rising expectations. The people within the company are great but the management is what is killing this company, they strip expenses where they can for the common employees while management and higher ups reap the benefits.

Pros

Free lunch and breakfast once a month

Cons

Terrible compensation

good environment, steady hours but thats about all

People you work with are the best part, the career advancement was lacking, and recognition of going above and beyond was just never there. there are dozens of managers and managers who manage the managers. The chain of command was always so confusing

Pros

free food often

Cons

too many people all telling you to do different things

Very much a call center mentality

Just like the title says, it is very much like a call centre in terms of the blatant favouritism and BS that goes on. Management is virtually incompetent, they will constantly give you reviews about how you "are not meeting your goal", yet never give you a hard goal to strive for. Ask for a raise and you basically get ostracized. Management constantly pats themselves on the back for meeting their targets on the backs of other's hard work. Professionally speaking this is truly one of the worst places I have ever worked.

Pros

encouraged to go get up and walk around

Cons

inept managers, constant negativity, no direction, no chance for advancement, no raise

Great people to work with, low pay and limited growth opportunities

Great relaxed atmosphere and culture at the company. Management is definitely making progress in dealing with retention and turnover, but pay is still not competitive relative to other local options.

Laid back atmosphere

Small company doing big business. Has more of a "mom & pop" feel to it. Management optics are that they are "over their heads" with the company at this point. Considerations towards obtaining some "Enterprise Level", Experienced/Mature Leadership/Management into the organization would help support their growth.

Pros

Parking

Cons

Poor facility

Fairly Good Place to work

Many events through the year to improve morale like bbqs etc. Supervisors are usually very willing to work with you when you have appointments, etc. Mon-Fri scheduling.

Pros

Employee Events

Cons

High Expectations, Low Reward.

Management all talk, no action

Great place to work for awhile and get some experience in the software industry. Co-workers were great. Upper management the biggest problem. All talk, no action. They use employee social activities to balance their lack of management skills. Like the song - Be there for a good time, not a long time - Very high turnover of employees.

Pros

Employee social activities

Cons

Very clickie inner management circle

Dont treat employees better

Management do not care about the team. The only ones that benefit are their group of people / lobby. GPTW nomination is an eyewash. There is certainly high rate of attrition in the team members. No one actually cares. HR hardly wants to make a change.

Need to treat employees better

As with most companies, management like to stick their head in the sand as to be blind to problems that run rampant. Policies and procedures are a joke as trying to enforce them only result in parties going around you and escalating until they get someone to approve their "exception". There are some truly smart people who ant to do the right thing but weak management, poor processes, unwillingness to address fundamentals (i.e. hiring more resources instead of just making the current ones put in more hours) and other cultural problems (i.e. swearing at the front line triagers or calling someone out in front of everyone you can think of) really hamper Autodata. Its unfortunate because there is potential here if you believe the "we are going to change" message.

Pros

Allowed to go for small walks, coworkers often want to do the right thing, ability to work from home on rare occassion (with 24 hrs notice), fair pay

Cons

On call hours are brutal, company doesn't take advisement of technical staff, sales team sells unrealistic timelines, poor culture

Highly qualified colleagues in an environment where you were enabled to make a difference

Each member of the team contributed to the overall success of the company and worked together to produce high results hardest part of the job was learning new ways to be competitive in a very competitive market and how each business unit could contribute to that The people were the most enjoyable part of the job

Pros

Colleagues

Cons

New management

Full I.T. web based project management

Working on delivering I.T. projects for the clients and meeting their requirements and timelines. It is a full cycle of software development and project management. This job requires a technical background and a lot of communication and management skills as it involves a lot of stakeholders and third parties across the country and across the borders The hardest part is to keep projects on track with all challenges that the project may face and to meet timelines

Pros

Fast paced environment, one team feeling, employees and management are empowered

Cons

running multiple projects to be delivered within a short time may affect qualities sometimes
