A difficult community of talented but self-absorbed workers.
Project Engineer (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 8 October 2013
Interesting projects with much opportunity to self-learn, create, and challenge yourself. A community of talented but difficult employees in a clique-y and slightly unprofessional environment. Plenty of fun social events, but overwhelmingly high school-ish in atmosphere. Minimal support aside from occasional, unofficial mentoring and mediocre peer support. No evidence of an Intern program similar to larger European engineering firms - good luck at trying to incorporate the existing 'office standard' templates and models, as there is little agreement throughout. Good for those who are over-educated, under 32, and over-experienced for a given intermediate and junior technical position. Downtown Toronto location near a subway stop is convenient and exciting. Seems to be always growing, but that could be high turnover.
Unlimited paid self-education opportunity
Childish, unprofessional atmosphere
