    Pros

    Good opportunity to meet and work with clients

    Cons

    Very poor supervisors, managers and HR. The company is extremely unethical, unprofessional and manipulative when it comes to billing clients, paying their employees and preparing T4s for the employees. They follow a lot of name-sake processes which allows employees to address their concerns but the concerns and issues raised by the employees are never looked into. Appreciations in this company are never meant for the employees who worked on the task but for the employees towards whom the manager is biased.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Being a huge company does not mean you should be biased towards the higher management. The employees who bring in business should be appreciated and rewarded accordingly. Be honest!

    Pros

    Lots of onsite opportunities and good onsite salaries too

    Cons

    RMG is not efficient at all - so you have to find your own project if you have any preferences

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the unnecessary internal approval processes and excessive use of email approvals and sending excel forms for everything.
