Terrible management and work environment
Project Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB9 May 2019
Eastern philosophy does not apply in the west. No loyalty or respect for employees. Upper management is ego-centric, disorganized and lack any real long-term vision. Upper management have atrocious HR skills bordering on bullying. Hopefully the cancer centre is its demise in Alberta.
Pros
somewhat competitive salary
Cons
everything else!

Sheet Metal Worker (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB22 May 2018
Modern Niagara was an amazing company to work for. Management and staff were all hard working and easy to talk to. The best part of the job was seeing the work progress and knowing that you were apart of a team that truly cared about the workers and the clients equally.

Poorly managed . There main assets “the tech in the field “ are just numbers
Plumber (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB12 April 2018
Poorly managed ,just a number , office staff doesn’t communicate. So disorganized and Toronto keeps the lights on. Can’t believe they are still in business in Calgary. They just need to screw up on the cancer Center and they will shut the doors in Calgary. Can’t tell me they sent all there best managers from out east to start a satellite company. Isn’t working.
Pros
None unless your in the office.

Not really a review
Journeyman Steamfitter/Pipefitter (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB1 November 2017
As a union employee my work was provided for by Modern Niagara but governed and regulated by the UA local 496 and as such all I can really say about Modern Niagara is that the UA local 496 would not provide workers to them if they were not a quality company

Dead end job
Plumber Apprentice (Former Employee) –  Regina, SK27 October 2017
The hours were good, lots of overtime if you wanted it. Good pay. The foreman I had didn't get along with many of the journeymen because of difference in opinion on how things should be done. And once the project was done, there was no future with the company.

unorganized company
Truck Driver (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON15 September 2017
very unorganized company, would tell me I have a load coming for the following day, get in to work and no such load is ready. no one ever cleaned up after themselves. many employees would damage the buildings worked in or equipment used. overall an unsatisfactory place to work. also i was doing many other jobs which were not in job description, jobs that some of management should have been doing but handed them down.
Pros
Fridays and weekends off
Cons
management, unorganized

Company is a joke
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Ontario17 September 2016
Don't get too comfortable. They turnover their staff often. The upper management is a joke. Laying people off is their hobby. Terrible place to work for. Avoid at all costs. A job at McDonalds is more stable.
