Très mauvaise expérience professionnelle pour moi, la pire de ma vie (+ de 30 ans d'expérience)
Entreprise clanique. Sentiment anti français palpable.

Interesting, challenging work with great people
New senior management has changed the company for the better compared to 10+ years ago. People are great, management is supportive and knowledgeable.Work is challenging, interesting and can be fast paced, but you do have time for a personal life. Work hours are generally flexible depending on your role and program needs. Paid overtime and you can bank flex and vacation.Your career path depends very much on you setting your own course. Work towards what you want, and show initiative and you can go far. If you sit back and let things just happen then you wont.

Positive and Vibrant
After a long absence, my return to MDA has been full of surprises. The new management team has proven that their promise to focus on employees is truly their mission, not just empty words. The cultural facelift is refreshing - from frequent token gestures to show their gratitude for your services, to bold strides in removing toxic contributors from the work environment. A far cry from complacency. A dramatic increase in hiring over the recent years has invited a younger workforce that brings about a fun and vibrant atmosphere. In tandem, the investment in employee training has also seen a significant rise, not only in courses/lectures, but also with the implementation of a new shadow/mentorship strategy that allows both junior and senior employees to collaboratively grow in different ways. The new Canadarm3 contract has also renewed the sense of national pride, and along with it a hopeful and optimistic outlook on the technology development ahead. I'm definitely excited to be back. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of this iconic lunar mission?

Great place to work!
The work culture is really great, there is a lot of teamwork and respect. Coworkers are extremely welcoming and helpful when transitioning into the new role, everyone is open to answering questions. Flex time and benefits are really good. Lots of opportunity for training and further education. Management is great and works with you to plan out where you want your career to go and what projects you are interested in. The new structure of the company is helping MDA grow and bringing on a lot of new projects and talent. It's a great place to fuel your passion and contribute meaningful work to Canada's space industry.
