Poorly managed and limited advancement in an ever-changing political environment. Pay and benefits are good however. Employees tend to get stuck to one area and don't really get to improve or learn new skills.
Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 3 June 2017
Volunteering with CRA is a great opportunity , as it holds very good reputation in the professional market and CRA provides with a certificate when an individual does community volunteering program with them.
I enjoyed the atmosphere of the workplace and my co-workers. I was sorely disappointed in the management in my department. They lacked experience and have a lot to learn. Communication was less than ideal. The people that trained me were excellent and so helpful. The management was detached and disinterested.
