Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 8 May 2013
I worked for CP for 15 years. It used to be a fantastic company. Since the hostile takeover last year however, new management has eliminated over 1/4 of the employee base and that does not include the additional great employees who jumped ship and are not being replaced either. Employees in the field seem to be doing ok. In corporate office, almost all are extremely over worked, stressed and pulled to breaking points. Extreme micro-management right from the top down with ridiculous new policies. Employees used to have autonomy, however now nobody can make a decision and it takes forever to get anything accomplished.
Salary is good, benefits and pension are excellent, but I would not recommend this company until the current management moves on and things settle down.
Nice colleagues, good pay, great benefit and pension
Top management with no care for employees, long hours, unrealistic expectations
