Fair employer...long hours expected..compensated appropriately.
Leader - Financial Planning and Analysis (Former Employee), Saint John, NBOctober 15, 2014
The company is siloed into many other companies and branches with different reporting relationships to a shared services contained head office. Each company seems to have a unique work environment. There were lots of long hours and weekends expected, but it fit with the compensation package.

Excellent people!
Senior VMWare/Citrix Consultant (Current Employee), St. John, NBOctober 8, 2013
The folks at JD Irving are an excellent group. They drive to get things done and reach their objectives.

Their culture is good and they are always there to help.

Sometimes the drive is a little agressive and they tend to forget that there is "life" outside work.

Overall, a great company.

A f*rt wrapped in golden linings
E/I supervisor (Current Employee), Irving Pulp and PaperAugust 8, 2013
Pros: steady pay check
Cons: politics
This company or the human resources end of it does not care about the employee - you are a number, that's it. Years ago they were the people to work for, you received a very good wage and great benefits for an honest days work- not anymore, their bottom line is what's going out the door and not the well-being or happiness of their workforce.

Highly professional organization with unlimited oppertunities
Business Analyst (Current Employee), Saint John, NBJune 25, 2013
Pros: time sensitive
Cons: time sensitive
Like i mentioned in my summary, its organization with unlimited opportunities for growth and success. Learning of new skills/technologies is always encouraged. Feedback and opinions are heard and at times implemented.
The best part of the job is the cultural and people at the organization are very good and friendly. you get to work with people from – more... different parts of the world and of different age groups which helps you learn things that some of them have learnt with age.
All in all its good place to work at. – less
