A great place to learn skills, but not a long-term company
Intern (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON27 May 2017
Depending on your role / work function, you can work as much as you like to get ahead, which can make work/life balance tricky.

The new re-branding is a step in the right direction, but if Celestica want's to retain employees, it will need to offer competitive wages and full-time opportunities...

Unfortunately, the turn-over rate is really high, and the majority of jobs are being outsourced to lower cost geographies...
Pros
2 paid days off to volunteer, travel opportunities
Cons
limited work/life balance, management styles
