Working in the trades on site is very limited as most of the large jobs are contracted out so trades only get the small tasks to do.A lot of sitting around and waiting for work to start.Micro managed and poor supervision.They are big on safety on site
Pros
Good benefit package

I love this place. Love it.Perhaps it is because I am a 31 year veteran AND worked for 5 years for a company providing training for the military that I just amazed that supervisors/managers can be respectful and not abusive. The respect I receive is off the charts and the benefits are equally amazing. I simply love love my job of courseware development.
Pros
Creative freedom.
Cons
The odd dinosaur who should retire.

I really enjoyed working with CNL. I was well qualified for the work so had little trouble delivering. One really should know what they’re doing to succeed here. It’s not for remedial learning. What made it stand out was the lack of office politics. Egos were in check and respect was mutual all the way around.
Pros
Interesting work, excellent pay, good people
Cons
IT infrastructure was a bit weak in places but this challenge was fun.

Lots of opportunities to learn but in transition to private ownership now so somewhat unstable job security. Great people and relaxed atmosphere. Very modern equipment and well maintained.

this company has been good to work for but are facing many challenges with the new direction of the company and the federal government. The hardest part of the job is to work through the company processes and procedures to meet all your annual deliverables. The overall culture is very broken because of all the uncertainty and change going on with the new direction of the company.

During my 10 years at CNL, I had the opportunity to experience varying job positions, interfacing with many aspects of the company. This company is very dynamic and energetic and has many exciting times ahead.

CNL lets you easily enjoy a work and home life balance, you are usually home every night and you get paid well enough that you feel okay to leave and not have to work extra hours.
Pros
Good Pay, Paid Training, Opportunity to advancing your career

Great opportunity for training and advancement. Has benefits and pension package. Commute was a little tiresome (45 min) each way. All types of employment offered on the R&D campus (days, shift) technical, non-technical etc.

The job can be very interesting and also very very slow. (as with any government job) If you work here expect a lot of training and some super slow days.

Long waits in traffic to arrive in mornings, lots of parking but far walk to offices. Necessary security processes make it difficult for break time to get to food accessibility. Remote location require travel to work with no transit options for the local area. Overall great place to work if you are willing to do the drive and walks, benefits are incredible as well as the salaries. Atmosphere is good but some uncertainty for the future of the company however promises for a growing organization.

Worked there for 25 years. Challenging positions, but very rewarding experience. Some growing pains as the company transitions from government managed to privately managed, but continually improving.
Pros
Very safety oriented company.
Cons
Some of the infrastructure is old and outdated.
