A lot of angry moody guys
Electrician (Current Employee) –  Markham, ON9 November 2018
I've notice a lot of bad electrian in general gets angry when given something to do and they don't know how to do it. Quite a few of them here. Surprisingly, they don't get laid off. A lot of Nepotism and guys who's obviously suffering from depression and need anger management works here because they lack communication or, work a position they're not qualified for. Other than that, just show up and do your work.

IBEW 353 is what keeps me here
Electrician (Current Employee) –  Markham, ON10 October 2018
Very toxic job environment where people have to kiss up to management every little chance they get for a promotion. Management is very unpredictable when it comes to guys in the field. We would be really busy and a lot of good workers would be laid off because "work is slow". The electricians are the only ones getting paid with pension and benefits. Everyone else is getting bare bones.
Pros
A job

Bad management

Nepotism needs to be fixed
Electrician (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON29 September 2018
I've been with symtech for a year and it's a great company when it comes to advertising to people. Working here, not so much. Tons of micro managers and close family friend for the owner. Money is the companys only goal and not employees. Guys get lay off and calls go on the out of work list at ibew the next day to replace that person who got lay off. Due to management treating guys like trash, they rebel by not caring about the work they do. A lot of lazy, sleazy, sneaky guys work in the field. Only reason this company is growing is because the owners grandad owned plan group at one point so, now this guy is trying to get all of plan group builders.

Nepotism is killing this company
Electrician (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON9 July 2018
A lot of family and friends for the owner work here, should be careful with words at all times. Since it's a unionized job (electrical side) it's very easy to be laid off and be replaced. Tons of new foreman lay off good workers because it makes them seems like great foreman where management would wonder why a good worker is not good enough for that foreman' site. A lot of guys here are trying to be superstars which i think someone needs to tell them, no one knows everything about the trade.
