Where's the Option for Zero Stars...?
Wow! What a disappointing disaster of an experience this was. Working at Medisca, you quickly come face to face with the unpleasant aspects of the corporate world. I expected this to a certain degree but Medisca possesses an almost comical level of bureaucratic and systemic nonsense. As a result, the employees are exhausted, depressed, and unmotivated. Management style is best described as chaotic and mercurial. Nothing is done with any semblance of efficiency, but most employees are either too apathetic to care or too new to make any decisions. You end up with this ad infinitum "blind leading the burnt out" chain of command which further spirals into complete confusion. There are some fantastic talented and smart individuals working there, but there's no hiding their mounting frustration.
Infrastructure itself is sad-beige and prison-esque. There is an all-encompassing sense of tension and mistrust stemming from the egregious installation of cameras and computer monitoring software. You will be provided with the bare minimum necessary to do your job. Company policies seem arbitrary and are counterproductive and constricting. I thought this type of company only existed in the movies.
I therefore cannot recommend this employment experience to anybody, for any reason, at any time.
Bearing witness to the vast and intoxicating landscape of Ville St Laurent on a daily basis, also some of the people are great.
Long hours, poor benefits, incompetence, no perks, no employee appreciation, mind-numbing levels of inefficiency, no way to move out of current position, poor pay, toxic environment, generally not great
