Enjoyable work but too much job insecurity and inconsistent management style.
News Presenter/Editor/Reporter (Current Employee), St. John's, NLJune 17, 2013
As a news presenter, I have enjoyed my work with CBC. However, I have not felt my talent was ever truly appreciated nor maximized.
I liked my co-workers but what management considered valuable one day was not deemed so the next. Questionale hires and too much authority resting with one person.

Too many operational areas competing against each other.
Manager, Production Technology Administration (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMay 6, 2012
Pros: good salary, ok benefits, some good people at the front line level.
Cons: chaotic, witch hunting, toxic environment.
Too many operational areas competing against each other rather than working collaboratively towards corporate objectives. Only "friends" of the executive level see advancement opportunities. Most people have "work to rule" ethics, burdening those that actually do work because they need to pick up the slack.

Best Broadcasting Employer in Canada
NCAN - Editor (Current Employee), The Broadcast Centre, downtown Toronto, ON, CanadaOctober 18, 2012
Pros: great colleagues and fast paced enviornment, both of whcik make for and exciting and enjoyable workplace
Cons: very fewgreat colleagues and fast paced environment, both of which make for and exciting and enjoyable workplace
CBC is a fun and exciting place to work. My colleagues are the best in the business and we are all share a passion for new and delivering the best possible product to our viewing audience.
It is a fast paced working environment but that is part of what I love about it. You never know when a story is about to break and when it does its all hands on deck – more... and the adrenaline starts pumping and you go into focus mode. – less

A large corporation with room for improvement among the management.
Accounting Coordinator of US Operations (Former Employee), Washington, DCApril 24, 2012
Pros: great benefits.
Cons: management with lack of knowledge.
Life at this corporation was great in the beginning. Once the budget was cut & management changes began, there was a lot of confusion and the interest of the staff was overlooked. This lead to poor communication within each department.

Administrative Specialist (Former Employee), Toronto, ON CanadaMarch 8, 2012
If I hadn't moved to the US to get married, I would still be at the CBC and planned to stay as long as they'd have me or until I retired, whichever came first. Great company

Don't work here as a casual.
Casual reporter (Former Employee), Ottawa, OntarioSeptember 30, 2011
Pros: dedicated employees
Cons: overstressed workplace
Great place for many years, but felt abused near the end and left suddenly. Did every journalistic job in the place for almost 15 years, although casual, was called upon regularly for daily news reporting in tv and radio. CBC Radio is a less stressful newsroom than CBC TV, while the people at tv are nice, it was a very toxic workplace with overstressed – more... staff, constant budget cuts and many people under too much pressure. – less
