Poor management
Software Developer (Former Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK27 November 2018
The salary is higher than the average, that's one good thing.

The software team expanded too fast, and management is not able to catch up to the changes, causing numerous issues.

Opinions of developers were mostly ignored by management. Decision making were mostly done by the top few people, with no inputs from developers.

Tasks were often time assigned to people who have no ideas how to do it, and with no directions beside asking them to go figure it out themselves.

Micromanagement becomes the norm when budget becomes tight, causing high stress to developers. Time assigned to tasks were often unreasonable.

Most of the code were only known to senior developers, causing them to be busy all the time.

Inadequate training/improvement plan for developers.

Technical debt has been piling up, causing numerous bugs to appear.
Pros
Higher than average salary
Cons
Poor management

High Tech Company, great people and work environment.
Shipping/Customs Material Handler (Current Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK15 December 2016
Most important is the great people to work with at SED very team orientated environment. SED delivers High tech Systems all over the world.
The Hardest part of the job is to meet the challenges of delivering these systems all over the world with great quality and in a timely fashion. This is partly due to the international trade laws and different customs rules of different countries.
The most enjoyable part for me is knowing i have met these challenges and played a part in delivering our products and systems on time.
Pros
Free lunches, Awards banquet, and active social committee

A decent paying company with clear work standards and instructions
Assembler (Current Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK26 January 2014
A typical day in this work includes basic electronic assembly, two 15 minute breaks and an unpaid half hour lunch, and a high priced cafeteria with not so great food.
The majority of the manufacturing floor management are straight forward and clear with their needs. Be prepared for a cold, impersonal attitude from HR once you get the job.
The hardest part of the job is the current lack of work and the manner of lay-offs.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the co workers. We are used to moving from project to project and pretty good at adapting to working with anyone.
Pros
Steady Schedule, Sick Pay, and Benefits
Cons
unreliable work load, negative human resource team.
