A political minefield during slower economy, lots of micro managers
Test Lead/Tester (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 5 November 2017
I was brought in on an interesting project and had the opportunity to work with lots of excellent people, however, this seemed to be a culture where there were a higher than average number of opportunists who felt the demeaning colleagues in front of leadership or peers was the best way to advance. This lead to micro management, poor work life balance and somewhat cut throat business practices within projects. Quite unfortunate as the offices were nice and opportunities were exciting and there was a lot of talent in their work teams, but many, many very stressed out people.
nice office space and opportunities, great customers
extremely long hours, travel
