Extremely heavy workload. Owners are very nice
Employee (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 15 March 2018
Depending on your position, it is a very overwhelming atmosphere. The owners are extremely nice and great to work with, however the workload is extremely high for one person. The endless last minute back to back meetings leave you no time to complete your tasks therefore you are working late hours or weekends to keep up, which doesn't seem to get you any further ahead.
You can expect calls coming in on your down time, at all hours of the day and night. You can also expect long work days (12 - 14 hours), with new projects given to you on a regular basis that are always urgent. This is not a 9-5 job.
There is no communication between offices (head office aside) with some Managers not communicating at all with their co-managers about projects or procedures they should be involved in. There is definitely an "every man for himself" sort of feel among Managers.
Salary, Owners are very involved/responsive and kind
