Overall good company to work for, when they have projects.
Most people are nice to work with, and work can be enjoyable.
When they do not have projects, and work is reduced, it is a different story!

Terrible, unqualified managers who cover up their ineptitude by pushing staff to do their job. Frequent reminders that the job market is sparse.
Scientist (Former Employee) –  Canada25 March 2017
The compensation for the hours worked and stress is very low. Staff is under stress as they are reminded constantly that they are lucky to have a job. Totally unqualified managers with lowest ethics I have ever encountered. Learned nothing and conversely had management consistently take credit for the staff's personal work.
Coworkers are amazing but underappreciated. Often they hire entry level workers that they can abuse and don't know any better as they have never worked at a reputable company before.

Maybe other departments are better but mine was abysmal.
Pros
None
Cons
Lots

No training or real safety

Superviseur, Adjointe exécutive (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC10 March 2017
Le travail était très diversifié d'une journée à l'autre. J'ai gravi les échelons en passant par différentes étapes dans le secrétariat. Les employés et les patrons sont tous des personnes avec qui il est très agréable de travailler. L'aspect le plus difficile était la rencontre des échéanciers mais en général tout ce déroulait très bien.
Pros
bonne ambiance
Cons
trop de changements lors des réorganisations
