Great place to cut your teeth as a junior developer
Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Dartmouth, NS3 March 2019
Good job security, good place to learn how to be a software engineer with a lifetime of reliable work. Good facility with amenities, and treated like a responsible employee with minimal micromanaging.
Cons
Poor pay, pigeonholing of positions, knowledge bottleneck, can be lost in a sea of generic developers, easily forgotten unless you fill the alpha male Navy stereotypes.

Technical Support Analyst - Full Time (Former Employee) –  Dartmouth, NS27 December 2018
Great employer, hard to get on because of low turn-over in the support field. Highly recommended, I took this coming from Best Buy and learned a lot about corporate enterprise systems. This was a willing-to-teach opportunity and I would recommend it to anyone.
Pros
Excellent work/life balance, great benefits, good pay
Cons
None, retention could be better I suppose

Interactive Media Designer/Illustrator (Former Employee) –  Dartmouth, NS8 December 2018
It's easy to have respect for your peers when everyone is so well trained and willing to help others. You can pick your own hours, as long as it fits around 9am-3pm.

Great corporation, limited opportunity for non-US citizens
Head of Corporate Communications & Public Affairs (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON9 November 2018
Great corporation with tremendous pedigree and world-class capability.


The work is challenging, the projects complex and the demand for excellence is abundant.


Perhaps the biggest challenge/frustration is the simple fact that it is a US based defence corporation and thus advancement is limited by citizenship. As a non-American one cannot work at any of the sites throughout the United States. These are State Department rules and non-negotiate.
Pros
Great people. Total deciation to serving the interests of the Cdn Armed Forces
Cons
Inability to grow within the corporation due to US law.

Software Development Analyst (Former Employee) –  Kanata, Ontario17 October 2018
Good values, clearly articulated. They have excellent training videos about those values and other aspects of working well and ethically.
Provided training when necessary.
Good teamwork. We worked together to achieve the company goals and helped each other.
Every other Friday off (9/80 schedule). It took a while to get used to this, but the extra day off is nice.
Compensation (salary and benefits) are excellent.
