Strict minimum d'employés et tout est urgent pour hier
Employé (Former Employee) –  St Laurent, QC25 November 2017
Ils n'embauchent pas, ou au strict minimum dans le but de MAXIMISER LEUR PROFITS ET S'EN METTRE LE PLUS DANS LES POCHES, Les employés partis a la retraite ne sont PAS remplacés, fonctionnent avec des employés BRULÉS en surtemps, le surtemps EST une condition d'emploi, prendre des congés est mal vu et au retour rien n'aura été fait, vacances en meme temps de la construction et aucune autre date possible........comme dans les années 20...... Semaine 40 heures au lieu de 37.5, le management est flou et les relations patronales-syndicat sont pourries. Le francais est la 5e langue, beaucoup de gens ne comprennent PAS un mot de francais, Grande quantité de personnel désintéressés et blasés entrent au travail que pour LA PAYE, les lieux sont similaires a un CHSLD personnel agé +60ans représente 75% et plus du personnel et aucune offre de départ, pression a produire insoutenable. Grande quantité d'erreurs necéssite des reprises de travail effectué, sans cesse, travail baclé, lieux de travail et laboratoires malpropres, matériel usé a la corde et rafistolé. C'est des conditions typiques d'une entreprise privée parmi tant d'autres, le privé, c'est ca...
Pros
Avoir un emploi
Cons
employés poussés a bout - surtemps imposé et manque de personnel partout

Very Stressful Environment
DSP Engineer and software Developer (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC28 February 2017
Some departments are better than others depending on the projects,


benefits are very good if the job is permanent

Contractors frequently leave them for permanent jobs.

They put immense pressure on employees.

minimal investment in employees


They almost don't allow for a learning curve

The most enjoyable part of the job is development of the product, whether an algorithm or software or hardware.

Testing is less enjoyable.

Documentation is excessive (aviation) and highly time consuming.

Financial Accounting Analyst (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC17 March 2015
There is very little opportunity for career development. Management expect analyses and cost saving measures but give you no authority and little time to implement or develop initiatives. Unfair performance reviews.
A very discouraging work environment.

Senior Marketing Manager (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON12 July 2013
CMC Electronics is an aviation product supplier with strong Navigation products and integrating Cockpit upgrades for both fighter trainers and military airlift. My position as a Senior Marketing Manager allowed to promote products and services to many regions of the world leading to strong relationships and an experience of many cultures which I found very interesting.

Usual everyday frustrations and travel delays.
