Great Job

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It is a great place to work, just living & commuting into Toronto on a daily basis using the 401 is too much. The pay for intercity life is not enough as most jobs are not anymore. Management is great and worlife balance is also amazing. Amazing benefits, perks, & vacation. Overall a great place to work if all other things in your life are in order!

yeah

Too much pressure from the managers above. Working 70 hour weeks sometimes. New hires get treated like garbage. Force you to work overtime. Took well over a month for them to get my payroll to work so I went an entire month with no pay.

Pros

Hoodwinked management

Management think they own the place. No system in place for the values and ethics they pride them selves for having. HR is a joke! No help whatsoever. Kingston location was the worst experience of my life! Cried everyday I was there from 3 months on the job until 2 years later when it came to an end! Absolutely the biggest bunch of selfish ppl in Kingston ! Absolutely no care or concern for the hard working lower employees. Management is out for themselves and that’s it.

Amazing

Overall I had a great time working at the pool. The staff were all very welcoming and helpful. When teaching and guarding everyone that came in was very respectful.

Pros

Great staff

Cons

Pool would close sometimes due to chemicals.

Old Boys Club

Double standards, dictator type management, assigned tasks outside scope of position, no compensation for overtime, mandatory professional development expected to be done on your own time, female workers held to a higher standard than their male counterparts.

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.

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

Enjoyed my work at CFMWS

Very busy position but enjoyed all of it. Retired in 2011 to travel in the winter with my husband. Have been working from April to November upon my return. If work available I return to help them out.

Pros

Nice people, very interesting environment

IT Department: worst ever experience

From the senior managements up to the CIO, this organization is incapable of much positive : whether it be serving their client base (no projects are delivered close to expectations) or serving the people the Mission statement claims, they do not care. It is an organisation driven by ego and personal gain (Apps Services Director, Ops Director), they promoter incompetence (CIO and others) and cultivate a culture of dis-interest, poor quality dis-enfranchisement of the tech resources that do care and are competent.

Pros

None

Cons

Mico-management of all, incompetent senior management, no cultural intelligence
