Great place to work and learn from knowledgeable colleagues new skills and how to apply them in your day to day work to make a difference and to provide exceptional services to the clients we are serving.
Ample opportunity for learning and advancement.
To make change to policies would take months or longer.
23 years working in various position in different capacity such as graphic designer, client services, data entry, research assistant to market analysts snd economists, working with media and providing information to general public,
Excellent work facilities
Lots of stress due to the nature of the job. Management was not experienced and therefore direction changed al the time. Management lacked true management and team building skills.
My time at CMHC was short due to being contracted. It's a decent place to work as you learn a lot outside of your role, which I enjoyed. However, being a contractor it sucked because the pay you were given compared to the work given doesn't really balance it out. The people there are friendly and are willing to teach you if you're willing to learn.
30min lunch only
Belle ambiance quasi familiale. Travail sans pression, bien que rébarbatif et très peu varié. Presque aucune possibilité d'avancement: contrat de deux mois par année. Employeur fiable.
There's no job security, even your own manager/supervisor won't fight for you. You either belong in a group there or you're done. The employee retention is atrocious; the 3 years i've been there i've watched 3 CFOs canned. Even if you have a permanent position there they'll tell you the position is no longer valid due to the re-org, and you can re apply for another opening. Working there is like walking on thin ice all the time.

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
Superficially, a great place to work. The workplace culture requires a shift from the old culture to ROWE's idea starting by Management and HR. boy's club mentality. Job security isn't there. Employees would benefit from an organized labor system (Union). Abuse of power, OT, etc. Totally violated. I experienced this and more.
Great work environment with very kind employees. Managed between two sectors; Business Planning & Reporting and the Assisted Housing. Maintained organized calendars and spreadsheets to attain all the needs of whomever had inquiries for meetings, outside clients and budgeting. The work atmosphere is very innovative and inspiring for the greater good of our future homes as well as future work ethics. I was unfortunately laid off due to job cuts, and for that is the only downfall of my experience there, no complaints as for the rest!
And enjoy lack of clarity when it comes to management's expectations, then you will adore working here. Implementation of ROWE is a slight bonus. Support during a multitude of corporate changes was severly lacking.
Lack of effective leadership
There wasn't a lot of training, you are kind of expected to just know what is going on and learn it on the fly. The hours are good, but the pay scale is on the low end for what the expectations are.
work hours are good
Less advancement opportunities work culture/environment/IT renovation are made without real understanding of the work need to be done changes are made to make the the surface looks good for the executive, but not according to cost/benefit
