Only work here if you are a yes man.
GIS Specialist (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC14 April 2019
Great colleagues who are all made miserable by management. Three sackings in four months (only ~30 people in total, so a high %).

A culture of overwork, I was told that I didn’t have too much work as I wasn’t visibly seen in the office 12 hours each day.

A lack of consistent direction and goal posts often shifting. Tasks that were urgent one week were then completed but not used for weeks. Any attempt to raise this with management was met with anger.

A lack of trust from management that you know how to do your job and will try your best to complete your job to the highest standard. Micromanagement abounds.

No company credit card exists for booking travel/flights/rental car/hotel so employees must spend a large sum of money up front which is later reimbursed. At the end of my employment I was owed almost $3000 in expenses.
Pros
Colleagues
Cons
Lack of Clear Direction, Distrust of Staff by Management, Culture of Overwork

Data Analyst (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC22 February 2019
This is a hard-working environment with very nice people who are focused to a high quality of work. This is niche industry which is on large demand, it is past paced with frequent development, making it a great place to grow, especially if you desire to lead. Company strives to be on the head of market, and thus it is under constant self-improvement, both internally and externally.
I think what I enjoy the most is the people, everybody is very decent, dedicated, and kind, all with diverse backgrounds!
Pros
Free snacks, downtown location

Great place to grow and forge a career
Energy Efficiency Specialist (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC22 February 2019
I find working at RTE a tough but growing experience.
RTE is a demanding company in terms of having High Quality standards which are understood from the point of view what is demanded by the Industry.
Having also the opportunity of working on the US and Canadian Utility markets poses a challenge but enriching experience.
Standards and demands are high in this company but if approached with the right attitude and effort you can easily get recognized and appreciated by the senior staff.
In Sum: working here is not easy but the rewards of putting up the high quality demands the company has are undoubtedly endless.
Pros
Downtown MTL offices, great staff, amazing communication

Not recommended - Toxic Work Environment
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC26 January 2019
No respect and real appreciation from senior management. Culture of blame. Unrealistic expectations and workload.
No real support from HR. As a consequence 8 people resigned within the last year ( for a company of less than 50 people this speaks louder than anything else).
People are afraid to speak up as they see how those who stand up for themselves are treated and blamed for bad decisions by management.
Pros
Most employees are nice and hardworkers.Downtown location, free snacks
Cons
Toxic work environment mainly created by senior management, Lack of profesionalism by senior management.
