Not what I expected
Marketing Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC27 March 2018
I was very excited to be hired at Stemcell following my undergrad. It's supposedly a hard company to get into.
Was told many times about the opportunities for advancement after one year at the company, as well as the numerous internal courses offered to employees. I believed that this would allow me to explore different areas of the company. However, there are a small number of internal courses, and many are reserved solely for employees who require the course.
Management style is quite old-school. Change happens very slowly, as typical in such a corporate top-down structure.
Co-workers are great, but the company does not seem to value its employees as much as they make it seem.
Pros
Lavish christmas party and department summer event, Free tea and coffee, Great benefits (health benefits and RRSP matching)
Cons
Old-school corporate structure, lots of moving around (positions and physical locations), high turn-over rate of employees, less opportunities for growth as are said.

Growing company
Quality Control Technologist III (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC19 February 2018
Positions there are fairly secure as the company continues to do well and grow, although there wasn't a clear career pathway outlined when I was there (I think it may have changed now), so there really didn't appear to be much upward movement possibilities.

Company with a very friendly atmosphere, dedicated to scientific research, and equipment production and sales.
Office Assistant (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC7 August 2015
Very comfortable place to work in regards to the friendliness of everyone in the company, no matter where they are placed in the hierarchy.
Work hours are stable, usually with the choices of 8am-4pm, 9am-5pm, or 10am-6pm, but depending on your situation and department you also have the choice of 6am-2pm, 7am-3pm, or 11am-7pm.
As an office assistant, the worst part of the job would be that the projects I work on would be quite tedious, but the environment and convenience of the hours and pay made it worth it.
Extremely understanding managers, always focus on health first if you're having any struggles.
