Terrible if you're not Quebecois French
Analyst (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC21 November 2018
They only promote you if you have a French nane. Even if you have more experience and education they will always promote a French person. The new Business Center Manager in St Kaurent has never been an account manager but she's French so they gave her the job over an experienced account manager!

How can you not be engaged when you work for an organization with this mission? People are extremely competent and collaborative, BDC is a great place to work and grow.
