    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.
