This center is managed by Aramark
Engineering Manager (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON10 May 2015
As a professional project manager this company is not geared to hire people that have great qualifications. In a pinch I decided to work there. It was a choice based upon the interest in commissioning a new building only. After the warranty period was over, there was no excitement. Not a great work environment. They over forecasted to get the government to invest in a new building. Now there is competition, they are too expensive in their marketplace.
Pros
I can't think of any
Cons
The list is endless.

Great Management Team
Set-up/Housekeeping Manager/Facilities manager (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON3 October 2014
Great managers who worked closely together to run the day to day operations, Learned much about myself as a manager, Budgeting, running work crews, multitasking in an ever changing environment, many obstacles and hurdles that I had to overcome while working in this role, but feel that I was successful in dealing with the challenges, the most enjoyable part of the job was knowing the clients were happy in the end with their events and they had a positive experience while attending at the centre.
Pros
Free lunches from time to time, decent salary, Good people to work with, great benefits, good work life balance.
Cons
Cuts.
