Great people to work with
This was a great company to work for but it seems that since I have left, they have moved away from the belief that software engineering is their future. Also, management doesn't seem to share information too well, in terms of where the company is going.

poor culture and poor mgmt team
very poor management and poor culture. Organization is trying to be entrepreneurial but is too tied to DND thinking and doing. No room for advancement, poor salary for managers, managers not able to think for themselves very directed by higher level managers.

limited resources
terrible disconnect between silos. Atrocious training. Heavily cluttered in red tape. PAO Office has tenured people who are utterly useless, such as Major Couture.

A great place to gain service experience
Get to work closely with military staff after they are dismissed from parades. Staff get to work in an independent environment and really hone bartender skills

Great atmosphere, understaffed
This is a good office to work in, the people are great and the work is rewarding.
Everyday you help out members of the canadian armed forces and the bases with the various accounting tasks.


However, to due to the administration required for new hires is can take a while for vacancies to be filled.

Every day is something new
Great opportunity to support Canadian Armed Forces on deployments around the world. Not for everyone though since military deployments are never your typical 37.5 hour work week. Every day will be different. Living and working with the same people for up to 6 months can be difficult.
Pros
Good salary + tax free allowances when deployed
Cons
Long days, lack of freedom or personal space
