Company Culture

Culture is torn between the pursuit of profits and altruism

Support from management

Varies widely from office to office region to region.

Teamwork

Yes for the most part on cross divisional initiated teams not so much when it comes down to optimizing turn around time for clients.

Freedom to work independently

For the most part yes unless the microscope is aimed at your department then the "nano"management begins.

Internal Communication

Tremendous amount of planning on how to plan plans to initiate world class communication yet the message is repeatedly still in planning when it needs to be in delivery by those creating the plans.

Gender Equality

Actually go the extra kilometer and a half to make sure women are treated equal.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Mixed here: tremendous respect at times balanced by an ever increasing amount of unclearly justified restructuring

Career Development

Increasing Planning Effort going on here but it generally becomes a flavor of the month club. Some stars do manage to rise to the top but the duration of how long they will be allowed to burn fluctuates with the wind.

Overall compensation for your work

Fair enough to retain the majority of employees and keep them from going elsewhere but not enough to recruit or build a roster of all stars.

Office / Work Environment

Most offices and labs have received a much needed face lift.

Environmental Friendliness

All the current buzz works are in motion: green teams, sustainability plans etc.

Work-Life Balance

Aside from times of senior management change (a large portion of the past seven years with three CEO and the cooresponding shuffle one would expect with each transition) in the past the balance is good

Company Image

Employees take pride in their work, however the chronic changes at the top of the organization and trickle down to upper management are starting to taint this.

Job Security

For the reasons stated there is a high level of uncertainty throughout the organization.

Handicapped Accessibility

Improvements to the North American facilities have made a great deal of progress on this front.

Inclusive / Diverse

Ideas are welcome but seldom acted upon to drive change.

Suggestions for improvement

  • If "I'M CSA" is going to have any value to the organization all five letters need to be practiced and believed by everyone . If they are not held high and truly demonstrated from the top down they are simply a waste of toner on a page.

What I like about the company

The benefits package is still fairly strong; however, recent changes in coverage are starting to significantly degrade what was once a premiere offering.

What I dislike about the company

The organization is once again at a cross roads; torn between a social and financial mission.
