An interesting place to work
Research Assistant (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONOctober 16, 2015
Typical day was come in and work on a project, either in the lab or on a computer.

I learned many things about how a national lab works along with many aspects of experimental physics.

Hardest part of the job was being given free reign to finish a project.

Most enjoyable aspect was completing a project which was going to be used.

Good place to work to serve Canadian interests
Project Management Coordinator (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONMay 5, 2015
Pros: Autonomy of action within define parameters
Cons: Federal Institution with a lot of red tape
Great place to transition to from the Armed Forces (CF) as they recognize time served in the CF and qualifications you may have acquired and is a continuation of serving Canada.

The screening process is long and very extensive but once you meet all the requirements and criteria then they are continually engaging you for further progress and employment commensurate to your past experience and qualifications.
