Conference Manager in Toronto, ON
on 9 October 2019
Not bad, but not good.
Generally you're working against an outdated business model. People were nice, but felt like a money grab with every event. High degree of process, sometimes distracted from stakeholder engagement.

Evolving business with a lot of opportunity
I have been working at CI for around 5 years and the company has evolved significantly in that time. The people are the best part of the organization - many of whom have been with the company for a long time and really care about doing good work and succeeding. The work can be challenging from time to time, but you are always learning from the work you are doing and the mentors you are working with.

Incredibly Stressful and Constantly Revolving Door Workplace
If you have a law degree, I would highly advise against working for this company. What they sell you at the interview is nothing like what you actually get to work on once you start working there. It's a failing company that is not changing with the times and has a revolving door of employees (either terminated or resigned).

Not a fair and constructive environment
The job seemed very exciting at first. Most of the general staff were nice but this was all I was able to experience after literally being tossed out the door without even a chance to collect my belongings. I've never had such an uncompassionate and a devalued dismissal before. Intelligent, but with a slight learning disability, my adjustment was not accommodated with constructive feedback, the opportunity to learn through error, question asking or plans of improvement. I was disappointed that a company of such magnitude does not invest in the growth of their employees through tailored learning, but are ejected for experiencing normal learning adjustments. It's easy to surpass, but must be acknowledged that we all start under the same pretences. It's sad to see that basic humanitarian values are over-powered and overlooked by those in a comfortable position who possess the ability to compromise the quality of one's life with the push of a button. And it probably never will be until the loss of a house, career and ability to care and provide for one's home, dependants and self is directly experienced. The answer is not always to replace people, but to work with people! Treat everyone as a unique individual and honour unique qualities that in time and guidance will flourish into greatness. A student is only as good as their teacher and that ultimately what you put into each individual is what will surface.

Toxic Environment
There is ZERO alignment amongst the management and there is crazy amount of competition between the chain of command- from director to VP of a department their ideas and expectations don't align and it really screws over the employees who have to report to these individuals. The rules for each employee are different and there is clear favouritism- it feels like a high school and these guys really like to gossip. The HR department is not strong and you will not have anyone you can report to and they will continuously make excuses for anything and everything. There is a lot of animosity amongst employees and it's just a very fake and poisonous environment. The turn over for this company is really high because no one wants to stick around. The office space is old and dingy. It feels like you have entered a different time when entering the office. They like to show that they are professionals but there is nothing professional about this entire place. No job security and no appreciation or care for their employees. Very fake.
