Support from management

Immediate supervisors are long overdue for some leadership training. It seems that you need a PE to get it.

Internal Communication

Internal communication is encouraged for most and not heeded when its requested

Attitude towards older colleagues

This can use a bit of an overhaul.

Career Development

This needs a complete overhaul. Like most companies, they are way too profit driven to be better to its employees in this respect. Training courses pertinent to the current CAD/IT configurations, not videos on YouTube and antiquated websites, are desperately needed to keep employees productive.

Work-Life Balance

Terrible is the nicest way I can say it.

Company Image

Its a fa├žade from the outside looking in.

Suggestions for improvement

  • More relevant training for Drafts people

What I like about the company

Friendly and safe. Convenience to mass transit a definite plus

What I dislike about the company

Its lack of leadership training for immediate supervisors, the total disregard for requested employee opinions and the antiquated/lack of pertinent training tools for the Drafts people.
