Engaging and Fun
Over my internship I was given the opportunity to lead my own research project. This freedom to have control over the design was very encouraging and beneficial to my personal development. They also hosted hockey games on a semi-weekly basis, which was a fun opportunity to meet other members of the company.

J'etais embauche par une agence de placement donc contrat temporaire
Je faisais un travail de bureau en collaboration avec une équipe très collaborative.
Il y avait des meetings hebdomadaire pour faire le point sur nos charges de travail.

Bon atmosphere, par contre pas beaucoup d'interaction avec les gens appartenant a d'autres départements.

Great place to start for fresh grads
Lot of support and trainings, have a cafeteria onsite and volleyball games. A good place to learn formal dev processes for new grads or co-op students. The pay is low though.

Fun place to work
Good. Awesome place to work. They don't hire many people due to budget constraint. There is one cafeteria. Co-workers are very friendly. Some teams still using old technology.

Bel endroit pour y travailler, mais pas de stabilité sur le long terme .
Environment propre, travail agréable en général projets motivant et travail d'équipe soutenue et bien encadré rigueur et suivi inspection bien établie salaires dans la moyenne et parfois un peu plus. Ambiance parfois désordonnées vu les projets clés en main et donc du cas par cas au niveau ce qui peut expliquer par moment ce désordre, manque de motivations des nouveaux employés avec le temps car il finissent par réalisés que stabilité d'emploi ne rime pas avec MDA, les mises à pied sont périodiques et répétitives au 23 mois est ce que ca peut s’améliorer ? à vous d'aller vérifier !

don't know why they handle salary like this
salary is much lower than market, so the later hired got higher salary and then stay at the level. This year (2019) the rate of salary increase is based on your current one, higher pay got lower rate.

During the work, result is less important than attitude. Code reviewers intend to force their own personal preference, if you argue back, then you become a difficult people to work with.

If you get a chance, go for it! It's an awesome place to work :)
A typical day starts at 8:30ish and ends at 4:30ish. But we can come and go at any time depending upon our workload.
I liked the management. Right now the Montreal branch is expanding itself.
Pros
Nice environment, very helpful people!
Cons
Nothing.. all good!

Avoid this place
Management treats new hires like they are highly disposable and have no respect for the people under them - they treat them like children. This this of attitude is very disrespectful and condescending. You also have no job security here whatsoever. So many people come and go - there is such a high turnover rate that it's a wonder the company is still surviving. MDA has gotten into a trend of only hiring from out of province or country to make it harder for them to quit once they've committed to moving here. There aren't many people happy about working here. Nobody is ever recognized, and salary is extremely poor, even for Vancouver standards. The promise of raises always fall short. No training is ever provided, and if you don't find material to self learn you are heavily criticized. There is no work-life balance whatsoever. The environment is extremely toxic and they find ways to pit people against one another. Documentation and process for work is extremely long and arduous. It makes any kind of work you do very unpleasant. You find yourself fighting with the process more than actually getting things accomplished.
Pros
Coworkers are pretty nice
Cons
Unreasonable and unachievable expectations. Low pay.

Fantastic workplace culture
I found MDA to be very enjoyable work. Coworkers were very nice and open. Company culture was fantastic, innovation is always the main purpose. Management is not always at its best, but not more than any other company.

A lot of activities were offered, yoga, gym, futbol etc. salary increases were important each year.
Pros
free lunches, insurance
Cons
advancement regular

Innovation and Customer oriented
Pay attention to the relevant location as the reviews and work environment differ per site. Awesome people and projects. I would recommend to work at MDA Brampton particularly if you are in the engineering field. You can feel a welcomed and positive culture change currently coming over this division.
Pros
Additional vacation week (shutdown) over the Holidays.
Cons
Limited opportunities for professional growth and continuous training.

Don't work here
Pay is extremely low for what is demanded of you. The workplace culture is very boring and there is no fun to be had. There is very little to learn here with no additional training on the job offered.

MDA in Montreal
The company was getting few contracts but with a huge amount of money for each contract which made it very vulnerable to any contract cancellation. Otherwise the working atmosphere was nice and technical challenges were interesting

Always busy...
There was always 10 things you could be doing at any point in time. Very busy work schedule; borderline hectic. Local operations manager was a "go getter", but lacked the skills to properly manage an engineering office. She was more concerned about the bottom line than keeping projects on schedule.
Pros
Time flies
Cons
almost too much workload
