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.)

Flexible and finding ways to do things different than the status quoThe CEO and Pleasant Solutions get top marks in handling employee care and work/life flexibility. Working remote, they provide you all you need to excel in your position. They will always keep the safety and health of their employees as a top priority. I am grateful for the opportunity and the experience, this company wants you to succeed and if you move forward with integrity, respect for yourself and others, their is limitless growth. It is up to the person to take hold and take the opportunity here. Thank you, Pleasant Solutions.

Meat GrinderDont 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 SolutionsOn 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
