Project Controls Manager (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB3 July 2018
Probably the worst company I have ever worked for. The VP has no issue lying to the clients about how Equinox deals with overtime. The company puts most of their ownership in the highest positions and unfortunately some of them have never worked anywhere else and they don't necessarily know how to properly estimate and run a project. There were a lot of good people that worked there when I was there so that is a positive thing.
Pros
There were some good social events
Cons
They have no idea what project controls is

Horrible project execution teem including Management
Lead Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee) –  Calgary24 February 2017
This is no star company. The company is poorly managed and project managers given tasks to cut corners in engineering work,Project Managers are not even Professional Engineers of Apegga and wants to cut corners in engineering.(Dilemma for engineers who are P.Eng.to work as per Apegga Professionlism)

Everyone tries to save their skin by passing the mistakes to others.

Any one leaving good companies and joining this mismanaged company will not survive more.

There are many people not even qulaified to call them engineers.
Pros
No Pros
Cons
Many cons

Worst company to work
Instrumentation Technologist (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB29 June 2016
Equinox is the worst company I ever worked for during the last 13 years. Many of my relatives as well as friends already told me the same about this company but I didn't agree until I had my worst personal worst experience with this company.

design out of sequence, Poor management.
Structural Engineer (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB9 June 2016
This is not a place for engineers, all they need is your stamp, you as a engineer will be the last one to receive information or sometimes you see the scope just few days before IFC. Some PEs work closely with designers, but keep engineers out of the loop. So engineers only get timely information when they luckily work with a real professional designer. The department head simply has no soft skills for the position, treated the department members with no respect, not sharing project information with the team, no overview of workload and manpower. The former department manager was much better. The management know all of these but they are hesitant to take actions. This company is cheap, but both the company and the stamping engineers are taking huge risk, I believe the same for the client. Think twice before you apply.
Pros
Free coffee
Cons
Design things out of sequence, poor management.

Not a very good organization to work for
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  calgary15 January 2015
Job security is zero. Management is very haphazard. It's a place to work while you get a better job. Company has no organization structure. Decision making is made at whims of one or two men.
Pros
small EPC

not a top employer
anonymous (Former Employee) –  calgary, ab2 May 2013
Equinox management does not provide growth opportunities, even though they promise you that in the interview process.
Management has the tendency to 'carrot dangle' without the promised end result.

The HR Management does not support its employees. Does not make strong efforts to listen or change the issues that are ongoing. The HR management is unorganized, and unethical; sharing confidential information with employees who are outside of the HR capacity.
The overall compensation is not competitive enough with the industry, as it should be.
Spending more money on monthly parties and alcohol rather than employee recognition or improving employee morale.
Overall, by far, not a top employer.
