Manager of Training and Curriculum Development in calgary
difficult environment, extreme workloadsWith the decline in the Calgary economy job condition became more stressful and intense, many people were having to pick up significant amounts of slack from people that were laid off, it became very difficult for many. The work environment became so intense that people were leaving that did not have jobs to go to.
Multiple Positions in Calgary, AB
Positives and NegativesMy experience was great to start, but there was lot of downsizing and turnover during my time at BD. The workload eventually became quite unrealistic without any increase in pay.
There were also certain individuals in the company who were quite untrustworthy and made the environment toxic by talking behind people's backs and unnecessarily escalating things in order to get people in trouble.
Accounts Receivable Coordinator in Calgary, AB
Be careful of which section of the company you are working inThe lower level employees knows more things about how to complete the jobs than the higher ups. They have a great culture there. The section I was in the lower level employees knew more and trained me more and had to learn things on my own. Nothing was taught or trained by the higher up.
Senior Manager in Calgary, AB
Overall great amazing team, and supportive management.The company is continuing to grow and mature. The company is getting better and better each each. Cleaning up processes, making better decisions and having more transparency. The downturn had an impact on the company but company worked at making good decisions to make it stronger and more diversified. Black Diamond is putting a lot of focus on communication, diversity and career growth. Everyone is very eager to help out and improve the customer experience. There are new challenges every day and thus new opportunities to make things better. Senior management listens to your ideas and gives you autonomy to make it happen if it aligns well with the business and the mandates.
