Excellent Job work-life balance

Excellent Job work-life balance, good Salary/Benefits and thoughtful Management. Work based on science and integrity. Very positive and healthy environment

Toxic work environment

It was a toxic work environment and I would not recommend it. Staff is either related or neighbour or friends. Outsiders are not treated the same. Never work there again

Relaxed environment, okay pay for comparison in private.

Great place to work in, hard to advance if you have no French. If you are fluent in French, possibilities are limitless. People will be chosen for promotion based on language requirements instead of experience.

Satisfying work and well compensated

A good but short experience. There were opportunities for advancement and nice people to work with. Ottawa Tunny’s Pasture location was convenient. I would return if another opportunity arose.
