Very good work environment and very interesting work subject. The only downside is that this company have been highly affected by the 737-MAX disaster and the COVID-19 border closing.

bad experience, they are not sure what they hire people for. Full politics going on. People work in nervous of being fired. Really bad management. Seems like its not organisation ,its a home office where few people own it. They can do what they wish to do.

At first, it is fun to work, the team is awesome. After working there for awhile, the team starts to be more competitive and more aggressive towards you. The schedule is fair, there's alot of night shift in a row.

Competitive environment which demands excellence and social prowess. Plenty of opportunities within the company and associated unions, for those willing to make the reach. That said, positions, once attained, are easy to settle into due to high wages and predictable workflow.

Culture here can be toxic and if you anger the wrong person life can be difficult. However job security is good and most of your coworkers are reasonable people.

Too much work, not enough resources. Other employees have an entitled attitude. Too much office politics, and micromanaging. Not recommended Thank you.

Training for an IFR controller is a challenging process with no guarantee of success. This can be a stressful process and one that not everyone makes it through. The work during training is worth the effort though and leads to one of the best jobs aviation has to offer.

Great company to work for if you have a good manager, but if the manager isn’t compatible you can have a tough time. Not a lot of advancement if you are not at the head office.

This is a highly tiered company. You'll see a lot of nice reviews for happy people working in the office/non ops environment. They work in their own little bubble and with the right manager, I'm sure it can be a good job

However, if you're in operations, things can be ugly.


Tiers:


IFR controllers (there is tiers within this group also)

Major tower controllers

Medium tower controllers

"shouldn't even be a tower" controllers

Flight Service Specialists

Technical operations

Everything else*


If you're not at the top of the scale, expect little and you won't be disappointed.


Money ranges from a joke to very good


Working conditions vary wildly. Some airport facilities are incredibly old, with dated equipment and minimal staff amenities - if you're lucky you will have your own staff bathroom and possibly some kind of break area. In the higher tiers you get custom nap rooms (that is only for your little group, no peasants allowed) full gyms, cafeterias etc


Lower tiers the best case scenario is that nobody remembers you exist. *Some of the everything else jobs actually seem to have some happyish staff as they are just doing their own thing and most people barely acknowledge their existence. Unfortunately if you are in a site that actually needs something, from facilities to operation needs, don't expect it. Or even worse, some idiot from Ottawa will come "help" you


The company is divided into regions. Some are far far better than others, especially depending on which group you work for. Management performance also varies wildly. Most of the front line management

Pros
You get paid. Fair bit of vacation leave
Cons
Working for idiots. Terrible work schedules.

Over all I like the company. It is one of the best as long as you get into a well managed department. If you do you're set for a great ride. If not your whole outlook on work will become frustrating,

Training is tough and stressful. There are 6 different evaluations that you have to attain 80% to be able to continue to be placed at one of 42 airports in Canada

Entire side of management was fired and replaced before I had left. Positive changes were made but I did not stay long enough to see it all play out. When i was there, staff was over-worked and treated like garbage. Hard work went unnoticed while small mistakes would be exaggerated and the employee would be alienated for them.
