The tasks are routine-based, which means that the schedule tends to be stable. The company policy on overtime is "give-and-take" which means that, depending on the workload, some weeks you can do 2-3 hours less, some weeks 2-3 more. Culture of flexibility for appointments and other realities of life. Family-oriented spirit. In some aspects the tasks can be almost monotonous and extremely repetitive, however that is a personal preference - different people have different personalities that thrive in different work environments. Also most buildings have a lot of services such as a gym, cafeteria, souvenir-shop, and even a dry cleaner/seamstress.
I was a designer who was given as much license and projects that I wanted --- which I blame on luck and effort. Some were great learning opportunities otherwise were grunt work, but my immediate managers ensured I didn't have too much grunt work, which I felt was quite different than I expected as an intern.
As an anglophone, I did not feel particularly welcome by upper management. My staff orientation in Quebec was in French, which meant I did not understand anything. Most upper management meetings were only in French so I felt fairly unwelcome.
Interactions with other people were good. Most people were supportive and I did not feel going to work was a chore. No real conflicts except the normal ones from working at a company whose purse was tightening.
Good work, good staff, lots of freedom to grow
Management did not care about anglos, some business decisions were avoided even though it had a long term financial benefit
