Bullying is ok or your contract is ended
Senior Technical Business Analyst, (Contract) (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON9 March 2018
Very unorganized PMP office which allows the business to run projects without much guidance. PMs and BA are not able to do the job they are hired for and if the PMs or BAs try to do their jobs their contracts are ended abruptly.
I was bullied and was not able to do my job
Pros
Great multicultural atmosphere
Cons
Business does not understand how a project runs

Some really bad leaders ruining the culture.
Management (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON7 December 2017
Organization has gone through huge change in past 5 years but this is a very sluggish company it seems to take forever to implement change and change management discipline is really lacking. There are certain leaders that are ruining the culture and these leaders are being rewarded for bad behaviour by progressively being promoted - hopefully the senior executive team realizes the impact of their promotion decisions? These leaders are only focused on self promotion and are terrible people leaders. They spend too much time managing up rather than mentoring and coaching team. They create an environment of fear and the turnover is a sign of bad leadership. There are a number of promotions that have taken place over the past 2 - 3 that everyone just scratches their heads and wonders why these people are getting promoted because they definitely do not exhibit the corporate core values.

This could be a great place to work at but the bad apples are creating a terrible culture and not a pleasant place to work at.
Pros
Location
Cons
Lack of leadership

A lot of us/them attitudes.
Claims Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON23 September 2017
Still some resentment from recent mergers - new blood is definitely necessary to bring some new thoughts, ideas and diversity into the company. Some management portray favouritisms that hinder healthy, productive team environment.
Pros
Free coffee
Cons
Flex time is unheard of

Company is o.k. but required too much overtime
Senior Corporate Accountat (Former Employee) –  Downtown Toronto16 November 2016

Great people to work with, hard to advance in
Client Services Analyst (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON26 June 2015
I have amazing co-workers, not just in my department but in the company. There is a pretty strong corporate culture of people socializing and kindness. But there is little room to advance. I've known several very hard-working, driven individuals who left because they could not get ahead regardless of how much the did or how hard they work
Pros
Great people to work with
Cons
difficult to advance/get promoted
