    Pros

    They offer good pay and benefits

    Cons

    This company is the most clickish I have ever seen. If you're not a white male, you have no chance to move up. The only women are the ones that have been there a long time. The people that have been there for 20+ years rotate through management roles and have no clue how other companies work. So no depth of experience.

    Advice to Management

    It's time to bite the bullet and get rid of ineffective management and individual contributors that have been there forever and are no longer an asset.

  2. It was a great learning experience. The company was/is a little behind the technology curve. Lot of projects

    Pros

    No lack of women in leadership roles. Good medical benefits. Excellent experience for young people to learn how to manage their own credit/ finances. Friendly atmosphere. Overtime requirements few and far between. Good deli in the building.

    Cons

    Location in Greenspoint area was not the best. Lots of crime in the parking lot. Building was flooded in Alison Storm back in 2002? and the moldy smell never quite went away.

    Advice to Management

    Try to remember people want the chance to evolve. It gets tiresome, doing the same old, same old year after year. Personally, I was not shy and asked for and grabbed for a variety of things to do, but not everyone is an extrovert.

    Pros

    Able to learn and interact with a team of co-workers with different skill sets.

    Cons

    Lack of opportunities. Promotions are given to those who are popular and not based on merit. Forced to develop on your own. No opportunity to improve with additional certifications.

    Advice to Management

    Be respectful of others. Provide a work life balance that is fair and adequate. Promote others based on merit. Health care benefits is very limited with only a choice of two healthcare providers and very expensive.
