Fun workplace and threathing the employee properly
Purchasing Assistant (Former Employee) –  Speakman Drive, Mississauga Ontario25 September 2016
Working at Candu Energy was one of the best experienced I had in my life. What I learned was don't be scared to try new adventure and gained new experienced working with professionals co-workers. The hardest part of the job at first was dealing with the buyers because they are always busy with the client and the most enjoyable part of the job was my boss wont bother me for the whole shift.

Okay place to work with friendly employees
Operating Engineer (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON15 June 2016
Typical day of work includes:
-crane and forklift inspections and operation
-plant rounds, including boiler, chiller, compressors, HVAC unit operation and other plant processes
-operation and maintenance of plant equipment
-inventory and disposal of hazardous waste

management is okay.

co-workers are great to work with. They make the day go by much faster by making it a more enjoyable place to work at.

Hardest part of my job is ordering parts.

Most enjoyable part of my day is our cafeteria. The food is fantastic and very inexpensive.
Pros
lunch is fantastic
Cons
ordering anything is a struggle - approvals take forever

Cons
Sinking ship

calm workplace with very skilled people.
Summer student (Former Employee) –  Mississauga12 March 2015
Standard hours, with amazing people. Learnt a new program along with new ways to do AutoCAD and Revit. They gave a controlled environment to learn such skills. There was no lack of work they kept you working right though the week. The hardest part of this job was getting to know everyone in a short amount of time but the most enjoyable part was getting to know them all and their skills and personalities.
Pros
Long lunches
Cons
Standard hours

Think Twice
Talent Acquisition Specialist (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON23 June 2014
It is a Privately run company but its culture strongly reflects its past of being a crown corporation. Most departments are run by people who dont like change. With SNC - Lavalin with its own set of problems, Candu is not the greatest employer out there.
Pros
Big Cafetaria
Cons
Too many buildings. Have to move around for meetings.

Not a good time to work for Candu : No new builds for ~ 20 yrs, Fukushima has been a bad example, no Canadian Government support
-- (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON13 January 2014
Still struggling with crown company mentality. Hard-workers are not appreciated, but pushed out instead. Engineering departments are great, and so are project management, but Marketing & Business Development is in great pain.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Management does not care about efficiency, engagement of employees is the lowest
