Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 2 October 2017
no advancement opportunity very bureaucratic good pension, decent benefits some areas are really forward thinking, fun and innovative many areas stale, dated with old processes dictator "fear based" style management blames union for anything that is "wrong" with the company
Beaucoup de turbulences due aux nombreux changements technologiques

Sales (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 8 September 2017
From where Canada’s been to where we’re going together, CBC/Radio-Canada is there, informing, enlightening and entertaining, sharing Canada’s journey step by step, day by day, with the news, content and commentary and culture that Canadians need today, tomorrow and in the future.
I was hired under the pretense that the job would continue full-time. However, internal politics and pre-judgements made it impossible to navigate the system. I was hired by a new manager who has little to no experience managing people. He had trouble maintaining a neutral, open workplace environment. Others within the organization passed judgement and he trusted them without giving me the benefit of the doubt and the opportunity to defend myself. There were questions about my ability to do the job, but when asked for specifics and why the trust and respect was absent, he was unable to answer the question. Instead, he took the word of others whom he'd work with for a long time at face value. I was promised full-time work, and suddenly the work dried up and I was forced to ask for a lay-off notice. This allowed me to collect employment insurance while looking for a job.
2016 Summer Olympic Games Edit Suite Producer (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 18 July 2017
The CBC is one of the most professional work environments I have ever been a part of. The management is direct and goals are clear. The challenge is keeping up with changing technology while the most enjoyable factor is always having the necessary resources to complete the tasks at hand.
A professional workplace with littlle empathy for the individual and not much in the way of job security or predictable advancement.
Broadcaster/Editor (Current Employee) – St. John's, NL – 24 April 2017
CBC News is a professional, highly structured work place that offers some opportunity for advancement. It offers little, however, in the way of job security and the direction in which the Corporation is being guided is not what I had hoped. It is a stressful environment with an emphasis on speed and not a particularly happy place to work . There is a lot of staff turnover. On the plus side, salary and benefits are very good.
Good wages, benefits
A "one size fits all" mentality toward staff and too much power in the hands of one person.
Deskside Support Analyst (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 5 April 2017
The I.T. action centre was a group of mostly guys and one lady who had great conversations at lunch and we all worked hard to deal with each division of the broadcast corporation. It was casual work environment and enjoying most of my time there.
Great organization with an equally amazing task. Can come as a great challenge as well as a highly bureaucratic headache. Good place to develop yourself if you are a driven individual while maintaining a good life-work balance and great benefits.
