Disappointing Career Move
Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 18 August 2017
While there are opportunities to advance, your entire career is dependant on who your allies are. Very much a hierarchy environment that isn't always based on actual experience or education. Make friends in the right places and you'll do just fine.
You can do what you can to tow the company line, but in the end I can't say I know one person who would honestly admit they enjoy their work environment.
Workloads are inconsistent, culture is weak, change is frequent with little attention to involving all levels of staff. Politics are a frequent interference with acquiring resources to satisfy project schedule expectations.
I suggest you find a company that will value your ambition, expertise, and professionalism.
Going to work can feel like going to war
