Badly managed company with dangerous working conditions
Field Operator (Former Employee) –  Aurora, ON2 April 2019
- Dangerous working conditions, related to helicopters and long drives. You can never be 100% sure that an engineer didn't drop a screw to the helicopter engine (this happened twice in a short period of time), and that you will not have to land in the middle of nowhere or worse just crash.

- Pay is below the industry standards and no overtime pay. And even after that they will try their best not pay you what they are supposed to be paying according to the Canadian Employment Laws.

- The work-life balance is the worst I've ever seen. 16 or 18 hour working days are not unusual. You can spend 8 weeks in the field and after getting home and being there for just 3 days office can call you asking to return back to work.

- Old equipment and no enough people to do proper maintenance. Almost every system has some problems and you will have to fix these problems in the field without proper manuals and with almost no support.

- Micromanagement everywhere

- Poorly planned projects and bad logistics. This will mean that you will have to drive with fuel and to fuel the helicopter and work very long hours every day

- Zero corporate culture

- No any safety training or any training at all

- Only in this company you can be offered "a promotion" with the decrease in your salary

If you want to stay alive and well stay away from this company
Pros
Traveling to some interesting places like Canadian Arctic, Free time on weather days when you can study or look for another job

Stay away
Worker Bee (Former Employee) –  Aurora, ON5 August 2018
What was once a great company is now being run into the ground by senior "management" and the owner. Employee's have always been treated poorly but its @ a all time low. No end in site as the people running this organization have no idea what they are doing or how to manage people. you are just a number to them and once you have outlived your usefulness you will be tossed to the curb without a second thought.

Excellent Company
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Multiple22 February 2018
Weather and daylight conditions meant a lot of waiting to get the perfect set of data, so there was a lot of sitting/waiting/reading/planning time.

GIS companies are slowly fading with the incoming drone technologies.

Dominent company in the sector but you may feel like an outsider
Customer Relations Manager (Former Employee) –  Aurora, ON30 August 2017
Just the C-level gets financially compensated during peak years in the mineral exploration cycle and financial rewards do not trickle down to those who truly make the company strong.
Pros
hours are not long
Cons
never felt like part of the decision making inner circle

Was a great company to work for.
AVIAN MONITOR (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB6 November 2014
Typical day at work, started at 5am, one hour commute each way, provided by the company. I was given a lot of trust & responsibility with my position. My manager was not onsite, but a phone call away. I worked on a small team, the position was seasonal, as were most of the projects within the company, yet future projects were always lined up and just around the corner. The hardest part was long shifts, early mornings, yet rotational work where you work six days on and have four off is perfect. The most enjoyable part was working outdoors as well as indoors, provided a perfect balance, and getting to go all over site, switching projects keeps things fresh, nothing gets to stagnant.
Pros
amazing benefits
Cons
sometimes the hours are too demanding, I did 21 days on in a row last winter, resulting in me feeling completely burnt out.
