Ok

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Engages in employee well-being but daily job performance can be stressful with limited resources and difficult career progression. As usually is, some good managers and enough departmental camaraderie exist, but top-down direction in terms of clarity and urgency of deadline is chaotic, compounded by quite poor systems support.

The Worst Magagement Team from the 90s

The worst most toxic work environment I have ever experienced. Management there for over 15 years and stuck there. Disorganized work environment. Unprofessional.

Unless you absolutely need this job, don't even apply

Management is very two faced here, you'll get along with them if you say yes to everything they ask you to do. The moment you say no to something, even if it isn't under the scope of work you signed on for, they will make your work life miserable. I can't stress this enough, if you don't need this job to keep on living DO NOT APPLY

Good Place to work for new grads

Good work-life balance. Lots of opportunity for work from home, and typically they hire people that are easy to work with. Career advancement process and pay needs an overhaul, as it is not consistent from one dept to another.

Run Run Run

Run from BGIS they are a horrible place to work . They lie to get you into the door then try to push jobs on you that aren’t even within your scope of work . The Managment are habitual liars ( all of them) If you have any complaints for HR they hide everything and collaborate with Managment on how to discipline you Run away fast

Competitive and low salary

Salary is very dependent on the team wise. In some cases, it could be 30% more for the same role but for other teams.Culture is also very competitive teams vs teams, so there's a lot of conflicts within the company.

Very poor work enviroment

BGIS is a very dysfunctional and frustrating place to work. Seems to be a big game of hot potato with everyone just passing along responsibility. The workorder program Astea does not work at all. Management is very reactive to problems, instead of being proactive. Blame is quickly placed. Bad moral, bad leadership, bad organization all around. With mandates lifting, many are looking to leave.

Pros

Some good people among the inept

Cons

Unreasonable expectations, always rushed

Not the best place to work

If you are a POC they treat you unfairly; they will only pick POC’s to fill quota and “tick boxes”. Do not fall for the banana in the tail pipe. Try to refrain from being personal with other co workers, they are NOT to be trusted.

Incompetent management with favorites more important than merit

The boys on the ground were a great group of guys. Unfortunately management was beyond incompetent at even simple things. Bullying by leads was completely acceptable. Gross double standard for certain people. If you were a lap dog, could show up late, leave site for several hours, ignore doing even basic preventative maintenance. Benefits and time off were the best in the business that I have experienced though.

Pros

Good work life balance, excellent benefits.

Cons

Abusive and incompetent leaders, they don't actually care about doing maintenance.

nice people but disorganized and unsustainable

Company is growth obsessed, but i don't see the where they are going long-term. Some teams are uber-nimble, some are not at all. Very disorganized.

Pros

nice people

Cons

Disorganized; poor time off policy; very little coordination between teams

Depends on the group and Manager you are with

Totally depends on the buildings and portfolio you work for. I haven't had great experiences. Hard to get management to follow through on what the company offers. Advancement opportunities aren't really there unless you are connected to someone. It's hard to speak on the company as every manager runs their building/s differently.

Pros

Steady hours, slim chance of lay off, OK pay.

Cons

On call, team members, pay up to $300/Month for parking, lies to get you in the door. Over worked under paid.

Fast-paced, down-to-earth environment.

BGIS is a fast paced, complex organization, with a hands-on work culture. From the top down, everyone lends a hand to get the job done! The environment is supportive, and down-to-earth.

Pros

RRSP Match Program, Paid vacation & Flex & Float Days, Comprehensive Benefit Plan, Partner Discounts, Tuition Reimbursement, Flexible Work Environment, Future Leaders Program

Cons

Fast-paced, busy environment.

Worst place I’ve worked

In my 30 years of worst, this is by far the worst place I’ve worked in any country, any continent.The culture simply sucks. Management is misogynistic and plays favorite. STAY AWAY

Pros

Salary

Cons

The stress they put you through is not worth the salary.
