Great colleagues - Terrible Management
Technologist (Current Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 18 March 2016
Great atmosphere and relationships between fellow employees but management is terrible.
Managers constantly deny flexible schedules, question people about their sick days and try to deny employees the right to take sick time. When inclement weather arises, individuals who live out of town may have to leave without pay or use vacation if they wish to get home safely.
Benefits are constantly being downgraded while workloads increase with no new employee positions hired to balance the workload. It is hard at times to meet deadlines.
Pay is comparable to other corporations for government organizations although fees deducted have increased greatly and fee increases are greater than bargained pay increases.
Stress levels are high among employees.
Only have to work 7 hours per day.
Have to tolerate being micromanaged and talked down to. Also, may be denied rights for sick days and the ability to make up missed time.
