Good colleagues, poor management
Great work colleagues. Managment lacks technical and leadership skills to make it a worthwhile workplace. Trying to move within the corporation is also impossible unless you have put in your time or with very good connections

You need to be passionate about journalism to survive this place.
If you are passionate about public service journalism (and I mean so passionate that you are willing to forego everything else in your life for it), this is the place you want to be. There is nowhere else in Canada that offers you the opportunities that CBC can provide when it comes to all aspects of public service journalism (radio, broadcast, digital, social, investigative, podcasts, etc). But all of this comes at a significant cost: there is no work-life balance, you will have to navigate office politics (added pressure if you are a person of colour), you will learn management loves to pay lip service to employees, you will work years as a precarious employee never knowing what your schedule will look like 2 weeks from now, you will suffer burnout eventually, you will reconsider your decision to be a journalist and you may even end up leaving the industry because of your experience.

Love the work, hate the workplace culture
I love what I do, but I find the workplace culture challenging. Horrible effects on mental health. It makes me want to leave journalism. If you’re a casual, it’s a hard road. Years of precarious work doesn’t always lead to anything more permanent.

J'aime être à Radio-Canada
Le plus mauvais côté est d'y être pigiste... Difficile d'accepter de ne plus être la "saveur du mois"

Best journalism standards, young and passionate team, but salary not competitive in GTA
Pros :- Working for the public broadcaster- Great team with passionate reporters and producers- Working on every platform (radio, TV, web)- Perpective of evolution everywhere in the country in both English and French services- Collaboration between Radio-Canada and CBC- Great pension planCons :- Collective agreement salaries are not competitive in an area like Toronto- Lack of resources - People hate journalists, if you wear a CBC logo, it feels like it gets worse
