Great benefits, work life balance, but no abilities to grow.
Assistant Director, Finance and Business Dev. (Current Employee), Ottawa, ONMarch 18, 2016
Pros: Free gym, free university tuition, great pension plan
Cons: No ability to grow
Work starts at 9:00, until 5:00, normally I will stay until later. I have to come some weekends depending on the needs.
I am able to do great workouts here.
There is a lot of opportunities for professional development but the hardest part is the inability to grow since this is a medium size company.

It was rewarding
Spanish Teaching Assistant (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONJanuary 8, 2016
Pros: Good Hours
Cons: Payment
a typical day as a TA changed constantly, some days I had to read a lot essays and correct them and mark according to the professor guidelines previously given.
I learned to better organise my time as, I learned to balance my school and work schedules.
I also learned to be a bit more confident when talking to larger audiences, since I would occasionally talk to and supervise classes of 30 students
The hardest part of the job was probably reading people's hand writing
All the activities implemented for the learning of a foreign language can be fun and entertaining, they are also good ways of memorising concepts
