Great job for people who would like to meet people from other countries, practice event organization skills. With the non-timeconsuming job this is a perfect extra dollar for the summer job.

Internship -Energy Plan for Mayer (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON12 March 2015
Through the internship experience with Mitacs on the Toronto Tower Renewal Project, in order to evaluate the energy consumption, I successfully analyzed the energy consumption (electricity consumption from their utility bills) of 136 units of a Multi-Unit Residential Building (MURB) over a three year period using the weather normalization energy benchmarking software PRISM. I also investigated the relationship between environmental attitudes and energy consumption of the tenants by analysing collected data using statistical analysis software SPSS. The detailed statistical results showed having high environmentally-conscious attitudes towards the energy consumption has a positive effect on occupant’s energy consumption level.
My strong time management and strong interpersonal skills allowed me to work with internal and external stakeholders and overcome problems throughout the project to meet academic and building owners’ requirements within the promised timeline. Regular meetings were held to ensure that energy efficiency measures were incorporated into the design.

Intermediate Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON20 June 2012
Company has a great idea. No matter what I feel I was personally due, I really, and truly respect what they're trying to do.

There is definitely something awry with the way the organization is structured though; high turnover in personnel isn't an accident.

Either way, the people who work there are mostly hardworking, pleasant folks.
Pros
benefits from day 1.
Cons
behaves too much like a small business, when it's rapidly expanding into big business territory.
