R&D Technologist (Current Employee) - Chalk River, ON
Working in R&D, if you can handle bureaucracy, procedures and approvals involving multiple personnel, then you will enjoy working here. There doesn't seem to be a clear mission right now due to the shift from a public to a private corporation. There is an attempt to provide a goals and meet milestones, but most of that work is being performed by contractors and temporary workers. Most upper managers have not had any personal experience in working in the private sector and are having a hard time trying to adjust and provide work and funding for most of their employees. It makes for long days when you can't find any work to be done.
Pros
Good Pay and Benefits, Flexible work schedule
Cons
Secure faculty and unknown future

Great place to work to have a good work and life balance. Its perfect if you want to help create a better future for people, as the work done there will help out with the medical industry.

Research Scientist (Current Employee) - Chalk River, ON
I liked my work and wasn't stressed. The range of work is great and managers are understanding but the beaurocracy slows work so much that it really hamstrings research.
Pros
Good wage, low stress
Cons
Inefficient
