Demoralizing, pointlessly bureaucratic.

- IRAP in NRC is a Govt Agency but NOT a Crown Corporation. - So NO horizontal movement into any other Govt organizations to similar positions at an equivalent salary scale. - Job title and salary DO NOT necessarily translate into an intriguing work life, let alone a promising career path. - Workplace culture is poor, stressful and unproductive; consisting of repetitive tasks, incompetence and inefficiency. - A lot of micromanagement and emphasis on documenting and inflating every minute steps taken in order 'to show off' the amount of work done. - A large number of people at the later stages in their career, waiting to retire with no motivation to do something effective or cooperate to improve.

Pros

Salary, number of holidays.

Cons

Demoralizing, pointlessly bureaucratic, stressful, no career development.

Avoid at all cost!

Completely incompetent management, inept leadership, little communication within NRC and employee moral in the toilet. Too much politics within management and lack of empathy for employees. In short - a bureaucratic nightmare. AVOID if you want a stress free future.

Pros

Good benefits

Cons

Everything else

CNRC review

Good collegues, interesting projects. But lack of consistency regarding projects, i.e. too much projects at the same time and not focused enough on long term development.

Poor management plagues this company

- Lack of management - Management constantly gossips - Rules are bent for favorite employees - They outright try to make things bad for employees they want to fire but can't, so they attempt to make people quit - The Union will not help in matters because they do not want to "rock the boat with golden people"

Pros

Benefits

Cons

Poor management, constant gossip among management
