Poorly managed, but a fairly secure place to work
Administrator (Current Employee) –  Peterborough, ON29 May 2019
If you can basically manage your position on your own with very little direction, this is an ok place to work. The people are great to work with and they're pretty flexible with schedules. If the planning was better and the management came down a bit off of their high horses, it would be a good place to get up and go to every day.
Pros
Flexible, Secure
Cons
Lies, Poor management, Limited benefits, Low pay

Operated by mushroom management
Technician (Former Employee) –  Peterborough, ON14 April 2019
Worst place to ever think of working. The management are cowards who lye to their workers and fear their bosses. Everyone looks over their shoulders constantly. If you love kissing a&$ and backstabbing people then this is a perfect place for you.
Pros
You can feel good about lying to other liars
Cons
You have to deal with the fact that you lowered your standards to work there

culture of fear
Manager - Structures (Former Employee) –  Peterborough, ON5 March 2019
I was a manager for 18 months and the culture on the floor was one of fear of upper management. there was little loyalty from the company for floor staff and the turnover rate seemed high. Although the work itself was interesting, the lack of seamless flow was a constant source of frustration for management and floor staff.
Pros
Peterborough location is a great place to live
Cons
upper management was deceitful

Seemed exciting but management was poor
Receptionist/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Peterborough, ON15 October 2018
Work the jobs of 3 people, for low compensation. No job security, high turnover. Learned that family businesses can be sketchy. Hardest part is dealing with management Best part was other staff. Look elsewhere.

It's a job
Installer (Current Employee) –  Peterborough ont15 June 2015
The job is probly one of the coolest jobs but the pay is terrible, the work place additude is poor and the managment is terrible. A average worker earns 30-40k a year a manger 80-100k and you can move sideways but not up unless your freinds with a manager, in which case you can start at 80-100k.
Pros
It pays most of the bills
Cons
Long hours and poor wages

company that does not value its employees
installer (Former Employee) –  peterborough ontario6 February 2013
Low pay and high expectations. Management talks behind employees backs to other management and "favoured" employees.

Pitiful raises if you get any at all. Limited benefits no pension.
Little job security. If you have any complaints about the job the response is "we will find someone else to fill your spot"

Management is very eager to lay blame and point fingers.
No room to move in the company.

Owner feels like he owns every aspect of your life and won't even acknowledge that your in the room with him, even if its just the two of you.

Avoid at all costs. The media makes this place sound like a dream job. When in reality it will be your worst nightmare.
Pros
free coffee, thats about it
Cons
everything else that isent the free coffee
