ADMINISTRATIVE (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 25 April 2018
The general office has a really great culture, but it breaks down on an individual level. All of the employees that advance do so because of their friendship with management. The HR department is unreliable at best, as they also give preference to their friends. The pay is incredibly low and you will need to fight tooth and nail for any advancement there as well. The clients are big and high profile though so they look great in your profile to move to a better company.
Free lunches, beer at work, free breakfasts, open office
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 26 August 2012
True independence, very casual atmosphere, but Big Brother is always watching. Very trendy, own pub, poker table, table tennis, projector TV in a Theatre seating meeting room. Everyone has a Mac laptop, underground parking, even for your bicycles and showers (kinda strange they are off the parkade). Only $ 175 a month to park and it's heated.
Friendly staff, and the Directors are all super nice.
Lots of great clients and CM gives some opportunities to work in other offices around the world.
All the perks, are to make up for the lower wages, but in the end you loose out.
Great social club.
Benefits are basic, sound great in the interview until you realize after 90 days all the small print.
the experience here you can take to another company and earn more and get hired.
