Poor Management
Service Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK27 February 2018
Very little training at the time of employment, very little support from management, specifically because they were not local to the office.
The local crew that worked in the office made for a good environment and stuck together through tough times.
However, the company as I knew it no longer exists since Johnson Controls took over.
Pros
Work life balance
Cons
poor management

All in all it can be great or it can be a nightmare
Emergency dispatcher (Current Employee) –  Montreal17 January 2018
Depending on your personality this will be great or it will be a nightmare. Middle management has some really bad apples and then some gems. It's a unionized environment which comes with it's own challenges. You start on night shift 'til new employees are hired and stay. There is very little turnover. The pension plan is pretty good so are the Insurance benefits. There is parking (free). It can become toxic though if you can't make abstraction of the drama and the above mentioned "bad apples". Otherwise it's pretty decent.
Pros
Nice Insurance plan, possibility to make $$
Cons
Current middle management/no advancement

Fast paced environment with unlimited learning protential
Tyco Technical Consultant DSC (Current Employee) –  95 Bridgeland Ave, Toronto, Ontario, M6A 1Z526 November 2017
In a call centre environment I evaluate and respond to authorized security technician queries and provide technical solutions in a timely, friendly and professional manner. Management is always available willing to respond to any questions or concerns. The workplace is face paced and sometimes stressful as we are supporting life saving products and services. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to provide quality support and helping other technicians out in the field.

corporate restructing
Industrial Service Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB8 November 2017
JCI could be a great place to work if you don't get flushed out in their restructuring program. every 4 years or so about 15% of the global work force loose their job. The share holders seem more important than employees

Big disconnect between words and action
Quality Engineer (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON25 October 2017
There were lots of plans and talk of change but no action. Managers said one thing and did another.
Managers spent much time trying to prove they could do the job they wanted and neglected their current position. This was the culture the Plant Manger encouraged.
