Productive, challenging, fulfilling, learned many new things
Technology Platform Specialist (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 9 February 2016
A typical day at work would consist of meeting with the Manager of the Technology Division, where we would discuss the days activities required.
I learned many new things in this role, most specifically how to write proposals, statements of work, project charters and project management.
My manager was an outstanding individual whom I respected immensely and loved how he was not a micro manager and he let me move at my own pace, and where he was approachable should I get stuck on any particular deliverable.
The majority of my co-workers were outstanding to work with, A very friendly environment, as in the past I had worked many consulting gigs with CMHC, it was great to say "Hi" to all the familiar faces from the past.
The hardest part of my job was to try to win over employees I had worked with in the past, as I returned at a much higher level of employee as they were currently. These people were much more difficult to work with as they were never very co-operative when I required information or work of them.
The most enjoyable part of this job was that I had my own office, got to be the right hand of the Manager of the Technology Division, was not micromanaged, and always had the full support of my Director as well as the manager, in that they respected my work and often praised me for doing such good work.
Cafeteria had excellent food
Long hours, with plenty of overtime required to complete deliverable on time and within budget.
