"The worse part is that crazy emergencies pop up all the time and take you far away from your work and your job description. The expectations are outright crazy and impossible. My job was really three rolled into one and heavy turnover makes doing your job difficult. Whenever I asked for help or direction, the solution proposed was always work longer and more hours. Also, the budget was unfair and slim for my department. The management team and VPs keep costs low (by getting rid of staff periodically by bullying them until they quit) and not budgeting needed allocations. They do this frankly to increase their quarterly bonuses. The place is run with only the short term on mind. They want to make large bonuses, so they care nothing about the staff, students or long term planning."
"I am able to shape the trajectory of service goals and re-imagine the approach to Library services...thus making it AWESOME!"
"Love - 1) the business problems and tools available to solve them. 2) company is investing in the next generation tech. Hate - 1) culture of obedience and uniformity 2) at the Business Unit level down, leadership is not coordinated."
"Lots of smart people to work with, ability to get jobs done --- hate the layers of decision making."
"Being a Director has many challenges, which I enjoy. I really love the work that I do as it affects people in a positive way. We offer technology guidance, make recommendations, partner with great clients, provide excellent specialized technology resources to our customers. By doing this, we can help make our customers work less stressful and allow them to focus on their goals, while we focus on ours. With a collaborative business partnership, we can all succeed. This allows me to be fulfilled and enriches my life. It's a great feeling helping companies succeed."
"The position of director comes with a lot of responsibilities. I like the role and feel very comfortable with all tasks."
"Setting a vision and developing a long term business strategy with the team. We work around the globe in collaboration with our customers to maximize new business opportunities. What do I hate? Nothing - only dealing with the inconvenience of dealing across global time zones."
"I love the opportunity to help lead and drive the organization, but feel that career path within the organization is very limited. More emphasis needs to be placed in the organization on building their employees, mentoring, and company culture."
"The processes are in many cases too rigid, so it makes organizational innovation difficult. New methods require too many approvals from VPs guarding status quo. However, when something can be done, it is well financed, supported and a lot of fun."
"Role is exciting and dynamic, although the high employee turnover challenges meeting customers’ demands."
"Stress and lack of funding can be somewhat frustrating in Canada but overall pleased with everything else."
"Loved the technology and the people."
"I enjoy the freedom to be creative, to foster new business, colleagues and collaborators, and to publish exciting scientific results with these colleagues. I enjoy the opportunity to solve problems, design experimental investigations, and use state-of-the art statistical computing technology to obtain evidence in favor or refutation of predicted results. The biggest challenge of a business start-up is to gain sufficient exposure for your company's expertise, sufficient business volume, and sufficient income. Nonetheless, struggling to do this had been an invaluable learning experience."
"At EPS we are a handful of great professionals, scientists and engineers with amazing ideas and big plans, the accumulated experience and knowledge bring us to be one of the most recognized consulting businesses in our work areas."
"Complete control over the content and execution of the course. Plenty of travel and experience opportunities. The administrative portion of the course can be, at times, cumbersome and frustrating. Great opportunity to meet other people and network."
