Horrible management culture
DCC (Former Employee) –  DCCFebruary 13, 2016
In my experience, organizational policies and employee code of conduct as per Government of Canada standard do not translate into real life practices. Work atmosphere is toxic.

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Happy Valley - Goose Bay, NLJanuary 14, 2015
Defence Construction Canada is a very structured environment that makes learing the required tasks very straight forward.
I worked with some lovely, professional people that made my job very easy. We worked as a team at all times.
There was a mjor emphasis on healthy living a lots of fun incentives to balance health with your work.
Salary was decent, however, it was the cut backs that caused me to lose my position.
Pros
great people, decent salary and benefits
Cons
government cut backs

1) Administrative Officer (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ONMay 25, 2013
I just want to mention that my rating for the above-named company and as a matter of fact, all companies I worked for, rate the highest. Every place that I have worked was a productive, learning experience. Managers, colleagues, partners, volunteers were great people to work with. I enjoyed every aspect of my work. There are no boring duties as each task has a purpose.
Pros
acquired experience in various fields.
