    Former Employee - Research Associate in Edmonton, AB

    I worked at Pioneer Hybrid International full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The company had a fairly supportive working environment and encouraged continuing education. Focus on quality research and products.

    Cons

    Work life balance wasn't ideal and extensive overtime is expected. Upper management has unrealistic expectations of what can be done with little resources (monetary and staffing). Extensive change has led to instability during the recent merger and spin.

    Advice to Management

    Respect for People used to be held as a core value of the company and should be given greater focus again for the sake of employee retention.

    Pros

    Close knit and small R&D site in Bay Area. Very innovative and well funded and good scientists/workers.

    Cons

    Lots of bureaucracy due to large and older parent company. No room to grow or learn new skills.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the RA and people in lab. You need to develop your people if you want them to stay and keep being innovative.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Pioneer Hybrid International full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good mentors at middle level management, good pay master, especially good for women employees. They generally give you good mentors, will take care of your safety (which is true for all their employees) and time flexibility.

    Cons

    The recent merger has led the company in a more government organisation kind of mode and as it is a lean organisation so work load is very high.

    Advice to Management

    zonal structures should be empowered
