(CAF) Construction Engineering Officer (Former Employee) – Ontario – 18 November 2017
It was the people I served with not the institution itself that made for a good working environment. While providing good education and job experience the organization is limited in its progressive ability.

I have enjoyed the Military life and would recommend it to anyone, but it can be very demanding on your personal life. You would have to move every4-7 years depending your job. You must be very committed to the Military lifestyle.

Challenging, enlightening,, camaraderie and commitment .Working as a brotherhood for defence and Lively hood. Quality Leadership. Knowing your neighbor has got your Back. Constant Travelling away from Family. The most enjoyable Part is getting to know yourself and your limitations.
BPC Consultant (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 6 November 2017
Depending on where you work can have different experiences in DND. As a contractor you have to take lunches between 12 and 1. No accommodation is given otherwise. You're washroom breaks are sort of monitored as well.. Their pay is better than other departments however its a rigid culture.
The CAF is a great place to work. It challenges you, there are advancement opportunities, leadership and other type of training, you get to travel the world for free while serving your Country. You will gain confidence, skill sets, discipline and it will set you up for life if you stay with it long enough. The pension is a very good one.

During BMQ it will seem difficult but it is just to push you to do your best and show that you won't quit. Once you get to your Job it calms down a bit, you will always be busy but not as much punishment workouts. Never bored while in uniform
3 meals a day, clean bedding once a week, holidays off (for the most part)
