Chemical Technology Bioengineering (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON18 January 2019
Originally 18 years ego Nordion was a great place to work, with a lot of internally opportunities to advance and grow professionally, it was a growing company in a very fast pace, keeping its employees up to day with new technology and training. Throughout the years all these philosophy started changing, with extremely aggressive cut backs and lay off in all working areas. Job security and life balance were lost
Pros
salary and benefits
Cons
no life balance, and long working hours

Fun and productive workplace with lots of fun activities to do with coworkers
Groundskeeper (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON16 January 2018
Spent most of the day outdoors which was great for the summer. Was given extra break time indoors if the conditions were too hot to work in. Played baseball amongst the departments once weekly, which was great for getting everyone outside to enjoy the weather and socializing with other people they don't normally see throughout the work week. Managers were extremely nice and very helpful whenever employees had questions or concerns about their work
Pros
Great boss, fun activites to do at lunch
Cons
Slow days when there is not much to be done
