Project Manager / Business Analyst in Edmonton, AB

Pleasant Solutions has it's ups and downs like any other company.
Summary: CEO needs to listen to his employees and managers more. From the BA/PM team, the direct manager is FANTASTIC! However, the CEO has a tendency to tunnel vision his ideas (which is his prerogative) but he will spend tens thousands of dollars on something that does not help the customers but won't even consider the overwhelming needs of his employees to help them make their jobs easier. Both the Sales and BA/PM managers are topnotch! But the developer "manager" needs to be someone other than the CEO - who has no time to actually be the dev manager. (This may have been remedied since I left.)

Dont expect to enjoy management, at all. This is a good jumping off point for your development career as you wont regret quitting, and management wont really care. management rules like 1984 instead of showing their employees trust and some semblance of decency.

You're better than Pleasant Solutions
On paper, they'll offer to what seems like a great job. In execution you will be micromanaged, then ignored, then micromanaged, then likely reprimanded because you can't work properly while being ignored.The CEO is one of the worst bosses I've ever had. He views his employees much the way he views the office furniture, cheap and easily disposable. He will not listen to any criticism or ideas diverging from what he originally plans and considers himself an expert at everything. He'll also expect you to clock out from work to go to bathroom. If you're happy being a yes man with no agency or self respect then this is the job for you

Great place to work. Flat organization structure.
Great place to work. Flat organization structure. You work alongside some of the most intelligent people. If you enjoy intellectual conversations then this is the place for you.

UNpleasant
If you are considering working for the so-called Pleasant Solutions... I highly advise you to reconsider. This company is a dumpster fire of high-level incompetence, paired with excruciating micro-management, led by a CEO who has no business managing other human beings. The company is shrinking, with a high employee turnover rate and downsizing galore. Most people with any level of expertise or competency are either fired or quit. If you work for Pleasant Solutions, be prepared to have all of your professional expertise minimized. You will be given tasks that are the equivalent of a chicken pressing a lever to receive a piece of corn. You will be given no opportunities for professional growth, and in fact opportunities for growth will be explicitly withheld. If you suggest improvements to any part of the company, you will be ignored, or contradicted, and most likely even reprimanded.The benefits are laughable. Forget about RRSP matching or other corporate perks: instead, you will be given instant noodles and gummy worms in the break room as a form of compensation. If you can retire on gummy worms, then all power to you.Steer clear of this one, friends. It may look tempting at a distance, but I can promise you, you are worth so much more than this. Keep looking, and a much better job opportunity will come along for you. Pleasant Solutions is a dead end road and a completely toxic work environment. You can and will do better.
