Great culture, limited advancement

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Enjoyed my time there and my coworkers. Good place to start my career. Advancement from the role was limited and role at times did not feel needed. Pay was also not superb. Would recommend workplace for culture though.

Great company

Interesting work. Lots of exposure. Opportunity to learn and grow is great for younger professionals. Salary is on the lower end compared to Market value. Turn over rate is high for young professionals.


Learning budget for employees to gain more certifications

Great amenities and benefits, good salary

All the good things of a big company (salary, advancement opportunities, benefits etc), but also all the bad. Worst things were the bureaucracy and the constant change in corporate/team strategy.

The company was intense with younger people and they couldn't figure out there pay system for students. Some colleagues lacked respect and some unprofessional behavior was evident.However there were also some amazing colleagues that were students and the manager who hired me was amazing.

free lunches, good people overall

Amazing culture!

EDC is a great place to work. The culture is friendly and respectful. Work-life balance is valued. Sometimes politics is high amongst different groups. HR department makes lots of mistakes, but don't seem to take accountability for thier mistakes.

Leadership never worked on private sector, so they have NO CLUE what they are doing to support canadian companies going international correctly.

Some teams have a lot of underperformers but they manipulate info to look good.Some teams they have no friendly environments, lots of people bluffing.

Restrictions of the Government without the benefirst

While EDC is financially self sufficeient it is still required to adhere to the restrictions of the government. There is still a lot of red tape and management is slow to change. Further, due to the budget cuts, a lot of benefits and programs that made EDC a great place to work were cut.

Wonderful progressive company with great people to work with.

Progressive company with great focus on people and career development. Wide range of opportunities. Wide range of age groups and levels of professional maturity throughout the company; from students and new grads, to professionals with 20+ years of experience.

Never a dull moment

A heavy and fast-paced workload with a lot of overtime for which one is not compensated. Some interesting training offered. There is a lot of nepotism at EDC, this practice should have been banned 30 years ago.

Friendly Work Environment with Many Facilities for Employees

EDC is an excellent place to work. Co-workers and management are friendly and care about your growth. The head-office has many facilities including a private prayer room, gym, and patio.

Interesting and challenging projects

Great managers and projects available at EDC. Worked as a QA tester in the first year and then moved to a Lead Functional SME for the Accounts Payable and General Ledger modules upgrade to PeopleSoft 9.2.

Bureaucratic mentality

The management has still room for improvements. HR has to be more active in the follow-up of the employees because in many cases the version of some managers could be biased.




Bureaucratic mentality.

Only doing a review because Indeed is asking me to

Good place to work, very good work culture and atmosphere. Pay and benefits are very good. Opportunities for advancement will always be available, but must remain in current for role for at least 2 years before being eligible to apply for another role.
