The company is growing and has been for the past 5 years or so. That has created a lot of opportunities for people (promotions, new responsibilities, new roles, etc.)

The pace feels fast at times and expectations are high. That said, hours of work are still pretty normal (there are ups and downs at busy times). I like the pace but realize that some people may find it challenging.
Pros
Opportunities to learn and grow, fun social activities

Cons


Where do I start, I'll keep it short:

-Extremely disorganized with no clear direction whatsoever.

-A staff member resigns very few weeks.

-Doesn't seem like the group knows were its going at all

I had a bad experience in my times at FG.
Left to go work at a smaller firm where things actually run smoothly.

Looking back now, I am very happy with my decision.

Sub-average company at best. Salaries are low.
Most of the intelligent and skilled people have left the firm.

My advice to potential candidates.....

Meh......Move on.

Fast growing company with lots of new things happening. This creates opportunities for employees. Management cares about the employees and makes good decisions. Company events and office parties connect you with other people. ESG and CSR present at different level of the company’s operations.

At CC&L we work on very tight schedules with last minute paperwork and request that have to be completed ( this makes the position very interesting). I love working at CC&L the only issue I find is that it is a smaller company, so room for advancement is very unlikely.
Pros
great group of people to work with
Cons
not a lot of advancement opportunities

A typical day at work, I was generally happy doing what I was meant to do in a support role. My coworkers/clients were the best part of my job since they supported me far more than my boss did. My department has a long history/reputation for being very difficult to survive in. They basically look for "yes-men" to work there and don't like any really original thought. If you have an opinion or an idea of your own, you're seeing as not playing as part of the team.

There is no real structure in the main IT group surrounding the server maintenance and support, and they tend to push people away.
Pros
Throw a great party
Cons
management doesn't trust their staff to be able to do the job
