Unhealthy work environment
NA (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 15 November 2018
You are expected to work long hours without compensation. Maybe a $50 visa gift card and dinner for 3-5 hours of overtime? Managers like to micromanage you and autonomy is rarely provided in this environment.
Due to poor strategic planning by upper management, you may be required to work later unexpectedly. The excuse of "this is the industry we're in" is used far too often to describe the inability for management to accurately plan and strategize to utilize team.
The employee-manager relationships are described best with the phrase "if you're going to treat us like kids, we will act like kids." - employees are restricted in many ways such as time clocking, video surveillance etc. Big brother is watching.
You learn a lot about yourself and you build your character through hard work and long hours. After you leave this job, you will be prepared to work in any environment.
