Canadian Nuclear Laboratories Employee Review

Can be a good place to work but depends on what department you’re in

Lots of great people work here. Pay is below industry standard but still better than outside this industry. Job posting most of the time doesn’t match the actual job you’re hired to do. You will be expected to go above and beyond your role to cover for understaffed departments, depending on where you work.

Pros

Coworkers, health benefits

Cons

High workload, unorganized

Energy and drive are not rewarded.

The organization is driven by procedure and rules that often interfere with the efficient and successful completion of projects. Energy and drive are not rewarded. Management often has an adversarial relationship with staff, partially driven by distrust between union and management. Very unpleasant work experience.

Pros

Good salary for young professionals.

Cons

Projects are driven by procedure manuals.

Contract software developer

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.
