Challenging work with monthly luncheons
The work is always challenging and never boring. The workplace culture could improve. Communication between departments is just fair. Management could be way better too, in fact I think some supervisors should take leadership skills courses. Despite being a big company, still functions in many ways like a family oriented business which has both advantages and disadvantages.

Beware the hiring process
this company hires a scummy 3rd party investigative firm from pickering ontario to investigate you after they offer you "conditional employment". for a person in the IT field there are thousands of better companies to work for. By all means take the job, but don't stop looking.

Not recommdended.
Colleagues at QA are not bad, but if you need developer's help, you are on your own.
Developers told me they don't need to help me because I'm not in their department.
Pros
Free juice.
Cons
Toxic inter-departmental relationship.

A great, solid place to work
One of the last of a dying breed of companies that actually provides job security, benefits, and a decent salary. Management varies, but my last manager was excellent. Definitely should be at or near the top of anybody's 'best places to work' list!
Pros
Job security, solid pay and benefits (similar to government)
Cons
none

Toxic work environment
Bullying is rampant towards management. Not enough care about future production. Work environment is toxic and unhealthy. Would not recommend employment with this company.
Does not live by its value. Employees live by constant power control individuals.
Pros
Decent salery
Cons
Toxic

Outdated approach to managing workers
Work environment fraught with tension. Very good colleagues, but bullying was rampant, even towards managers. If management had treated workers with more dignity, production would have been higher. Otherwise, the work was very interesting.

Good corporate workplace
I worked in the Lottery Department of Canadian Bank Note, on their Android application. The work introduced me to android development and thus helped in my personal development. If you are looking for a stable job in a corporate workplace, Canadian Bank Note fits the bill.

A typical day at work
If you are a person who loves new challenges and experiences, then you would appreciate to work at CBN. They offer and use a traditional approach in work flow management, but it works.

The people I work with are good people and have potential to be even greater, given the opportunity. There are people who will walk all over you and there are people who will do anything to help you on your feet.


The hardest part of this job is when you have nothing to do and just sitting there waiting for work to be assigned due to machine break downs.


The most enjoyable part of this job is the friends you make and people you learn and work with makes it worth wild to come everyday.
Pros
Full time/permanent
Cons
12 Hours shift/nights
