IT Architect (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 21 August 2017
Most days are spent fighting fires and meeting metrics for JIRA tickets. Projects are hastily planned without input from IT. Business requirements dictate IT solutions. BA and QA positions are filled by unqualified businesspeople. "Social-club" type culture that alienates and isolates hard workers and shoots down progressive ideas.
Supervisor (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 10 April 2017
When I joined the Olympia team, I had put zero effort into my career goals. I started as an Account Officer, where I was afforded the opportunity to work with and build trusted relationships with a group of a exempt market clients. I was also partnered with a Coordinator, who acted as my right-arm by ensuring all documentation and transaction requirements were fulfilled. The opportunity I was given by Olympia to work alongside and act as mentor to both my Coordinator and clients was the booster I needed to focus on my own career goals. Nine years later, I’m one of several supervisors working with the very team I started with. I have the daily privilege of working with a dynamic group of unique individuals, watching them discover their own potential. My original Coordinator is now a Team Lead who’s focus is acting as a resource and support to her Supervisor. Olympia Trust Company’s culture is summed up in our motto, “With Us It’s Personal.” Employees are treated like people and not numbers, our team members rally to support each other and a work / life balance as well as personal development are encouraged. I'm a proud member of the Olympia team and what a ride!
