Like the title says, I learned alot at DATA. My professional skills matured year after year. The culture at DATA needs to change, there is little to no honest communication between management and executives down to their employees. Departmental divide is huge is this company, and with everyone not in the loop, the attitude is usually 'pass the buck'. Overall, the employee base is exceptionally friendly and professional, if only execs could understand retention is important.

the culture is a happy culture at Data. People are not stressed as much since the roles and responsibilities are well defined. Bottomless coffee cups for free is a big hit in this company. Work is done in a family oriented concept where people are familiar with one another.. The CEO is a very pleasant and engaging individual and so are the other senior management team. their pleasant demeanor is contagious. You can't help but smile on a daily basis.
Free coffee, very pleasant work environment. Very supportive management.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 4 February 2018
Sent our jobs to Ontario. Don't waste your time. It was like working in a hornets nest and the managers don't know what they are doing and the President CEO should have left in March 2016 when he said he was going to leave.
It was very unsafe, no communication due to language barriers

The best part of the job was occasionally getting to drive forklift. I also enjoyed helping with shipping and receiving. When picking orders it was also nice when you could locate the proper item without asking.

CEOs keep changing, upper management doesn't always make competent decisions that cause business financial loss. Don't always invest into existing clients needs to keep them happy, instead choose to let them go.
