Mistras is a decent company to work for as the employees throughout the organization are good. Management is clicky and you cannot trust the HR department at all so do not express your concerns. They will offer and promise certain things and will deliver differently. They are not even remotely close to Acuren here in Canada and Mistras is heavily governed by Americans which doesn’t not help.

The company promotes life balance but does not live it. Very stressful, lots of stabbing in the back. Management does not stand beside you. Overworked no compensation. A lot of infighting and if you talk to HR they do nothing. In fact a few of us filed complaints and then we were let go.

Techs do well while the work is available. The office staff seem stressed. Unionized (for NDT techs only), so the pay goes up with each ticket earned.
Pros
Extensive online training available.
Cons
Poor job security, at mercy of the client

Everything was excellent at site level but as soon as upper management came on site well... things went south pretty fast, heard they recently did a management swap so I’d give them another go. Oh and i hope you like Kearl, that’s the only site they have :)

This companies upper management has a lot to learn about the way clients expectations are in Canada, hopefully they will learn. Not sure how much work they need to lose to other contractors before they do learn or figure it out.
The management base in corporate Calgary have learnt they do not need to respond to emails or phone calls. This is

starting to develop with management in Fort McMurray

Poor management at the very top followed by overworked and poor middle management. Pipelines throughout Alberta with poor preparation of equipment and no chemical disposal facilities at any of the sites. Most trucks drop their chemicals wherever as its up to the individual techs to deal with this. Environment Alberta/Canada should be made aware.
Equipment sent to jobs in poor condition and with no backups. Most of the pressure is on the tech to deal with.
Pros
Lots of projects at the moment.
Cons
Poor leadership, over complicated reporting system, poor equipment and support.

Worked here for years and contributed more than a lot of other people. Ended up being pushed out because if you are not with the "in" crowd, they treat you like garbage and get rid of you.
I would not advise anybody to work here unless you can't find work anywhere else.

Working for Mistras is stressful due to terrible management and micro managing. The managers will always want to be copied in every email and they always reply without reading the email putting the stress on the workers under them.

The managers micro manages and want you in the office by an agreed set schedule with no flexibility of coming early or a little later when the work is not time sensitive. Overtimes are unpaid and you are not allowed to bank your overtime, as a result many employees come at scheduled time and do not stay after schedule even if work is not finished.


Benefits are lack luster with only 2 weeks vacation and cannot be negotiated. You only receive 3 sick days per year. So do not get sick if you want to get paid otherwise you will need to use your 2 weeks vacation hours for payment.


When working for them be prepared to report to managers with no credentials and no experience out of the company.


Nepotism is outrageous in the company.
Pros
None
Cons
Unpaid Overtime, Poor Management, No Job Flexibility, 2 Weeks Vacation only

The organization values and understands the importance of a work life balance coupled with quality, safety and maintaining positive working relationships with clients and co-workers.
Management was always available to give direction and assist whenever required.

Learning new inspection methods was also a very enjoyable part of working with Mistras Canada.
