Law Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Law Administrative Assistant – 22 August 2018
A typical day at work would be drafting up delegations,scanning, and filing legal documents as well as drafting legal documents. I learned how to draft delegations. The workplace culture was not diverse which for me was uncomfortable. The hardest part of the job was trying to draft up many delegations while filing as well. The most enjoyable part of the job would be talking to the lawyers and learning from them.
Company has lost its reputation and trust with employees due to outsourcing
Technical Support (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 June 2018
Was and still is a great place to learn and work with current technologies. However, company lost the trust of its employees when it began outsourcing staff to India.
Management tend to tell staff what they want to hear and do something completely different. That starts at the lowest levels of management all the way up to the CEO.
Many managers and executive managers have inherited their positions over time and simply aren't qualified or experienced enough to make proper decisions. For some this is the only company they have ever worked for, so they have no true experience outside of the company to call on.
If you're starting out and want to learn and move on, this would be a good company to look into. If you're looking for a company to invest long term in, this isn't the place. Management can't be trusted and neither can the safety and security of your job.
Great opportunity to learn and work with the latest technology
Poor and inexperienced management, outsourcing mentality, management tells employees what they think they want to hear but often does the opposite, promise transparency and two-way communication but again don't do that

People are straight forward and the projects are exciting. They are well organized, and have a lot of opportunities. You can enter either as a contingent worker/ contractor or hired as a Full Time employee. Either way, they offer you options along the way. Especially if you are a strong performer.
