Great place for stable long term work
Market Analyst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON18 May 2016
good place for long term work although they do need to upgrade facilities (office etc). People are nice and friendly. Pace of moving up is slow although you can get better titles if you like. Work complications can be tough but flex work environment makes it easier to cope with the challenges.

A Great Place to Learn
Program Coordinator / Producton Cell Leader (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON10 January 2013
Learned everything from the manufacturing process, information technology, lean, six sigma, warehousing, after-market services, supply chain, leadership, personnel safety and many others.

Management is very fair and by the book sometimes to much which negatively impacts some employees. Sometime being too fair comes at a cost to employees who consistently exceed expectations.

The hardest part of the job is finding new and efficient ways of doing this, but this is a challenge that we are constantly encouraged and motivated to accomplish, which brings many rewards from personal growth and satisfaction to sometimes financial rewards.

Most enjoyable part is the ability to continually grow and learn new things on the job and through furthering education at the company's expense.
Pros
yearly bonus, plenty of vacation time and very flexible
Cons
during slow periods, not much room for promotions

Friendly Multicultural workplace
Labor worker (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON2 December 2015
I learned to work as a team and how sometimes you have to adjust to work in a team or else completing the task would be a failure. Most my co workers arefriendly. I really enjoy working with some of them. i think the hardest part of the job is moving the panels or cells because the cells are so delicate.
Cons
long hours

Stressful, noisy and unfriendly Environment
Production Assistant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON11 August 2012
A typical day at work was stressful, noisy and the staff was unfriendly.
I have learnt that it was an unhealthy, toxic and stressfull atmosphere, because of the chemical use on the computer boards.
Management did not care about staff,all the care about is making lots of money.
My co-workers was always tired and seemed stressout.
The hardest part of the job was working 12hours a day.
There was no enyoyable part of the job.
Cons
very long hours

Flexible hours in a very lean environment
Supply Chain Manager (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON7 January 2015
Celestica expects a lot out of employee base with respect to time commitment and travel. However, on the flip side, most of the management team offers high degree of work flexibility to help offset the night-work with Asia and constant travel.

This company promotes employee development and if an employee is willing to put in the time and effort, they will see advancement.
Pros
Flexbility with Work hours
Cons
Lots of night calls with Asia and travel expectations, average pay rates
