The most useful review selected by Indeed
Week management. Manager was fired during my contract. My manager always confused with how many hours I worked. As result left bad review about me so its completely unfair.

Best place to work

The supervisor is easy to talk with and she listens keenly to what is being said. I made a suggestion and she advised me to email the IT department with my suggestion (she assisted me with a few changes) and my suggestion was implemented. Unlike some supervisors, she didn't want to get the praise for a suggestion that wasn't hers. Great team to work with.

Massive restructuring

Calgary parking authority is going through a massive restructuring that includes the firing of the majority of management and Senior staff. Staff work on a day-to-day basis wondering if or when their jobs will be in jeopardy. For a company that claims a direct link to working with the City of Calgary this is one of the more poorly run companies within the City of Calgary portfolio

Fun Workplace but with Cultural Problems

Great opportunity and tons of work to do, but the culture of the company makes it hard to work at highest level. There is lots of rumors, inter and intra departmental clashes, and as a summer student I just felt like I couldn't trust most people.

Pros

Employee Benifits

Cons

Toxic Workplace Culture

Secure work place but no room for advancement

The work culture is not bad. If you keep your head down and just do the job they ask you then all is good. They do not want more or less in this company and there is no room for advancement. Everybody has a job to do, do not step outside that job. It is pleasant enough but no challenges.

Pros

descent benefits

Cons

very boring work

Culture changes regularly

A very challenging place to be employed. Management and workplace culture extremely difficult to maintain an understanding of (it seems to change on a whim with no thought to all the consequences). Layoffs, downsizing subject to the economy.

Pros

remuneration

Cons

stress and confusion

Profit first company

Management has lost touch with the day to day operations faced by emplolyees. Decent salary and benefits, hours ok depending on position, must be able to deal with stress from within company and with the general public
