No coaching or training provided to students
Company Data Analyst (Student) (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 7 May 2016
My experience at EDC, as well as other students I know has been less than optimal.
My team was composed of 4 people including myself, who worked from home 2-3 days a week, and the rest they were unavailable due to meetings.
Most of my tasks were given to me in an informal manner, often by them stopping by my desk on their way to a meeting they were late for, firing requests at me for 30 seconds, and not providing any training but expecting impeccable results.
There was no feedback despite multiple verbal and written requests, but when it was provided, it was often too late, was done in a accusatory tone, and did not seek to solve the problem, but mainly to point out failures.
My manager and supervisors were incapable of giving a straight answer to any questions, and acted annoyed when asked. Additionally, there was no recognition for my work when it was presented to other teams, which made me feel anonymous and unappreciated.
Overall, a horrible company to work for. The culture is hostile, there is no opportunities for development offered to students, and the managers were spiteful, and went as far as ruining other job opportunities for me by giving horrible references.
AVOID THIS COMPANY.
Horrible Culture and managers
