The problem is the staffing agency took a big portion of the payment, in other word, The consultant got paid in average about 60% or less from the original amount of the bid rate.

Toxic work place

Repetitive work. Unsupportive management team. Very little room for advancement or opportunities to learn new skills. Work place culture reminds me high school clicks.

Enjoyable workplace with coworkers and management that helps you succeed

Great place to work as a young person. I learned a lot during my time with PSPC and would love to work there again in the future. If offered a position with PSPC, I would accept with enthusiasm.

Valuable work experience and a great place to learn as everyone is there to help

Working here has been a better opportunity than I could have hoped for. Management continually checks to make sure you enjoy the line of work and constantly try to give you something of interest and benefit to you. They are there to build a long term relationship and help you build your career.

Collaborative group - filled with innovative ideas and great communication

I truly enjoyed working with PSPC. I felt welcomed and a part of their team, despite being a student at the time. They are a great team to work with and I'm happy I had the opportunity to work with them.

Typical government department.

This is a typical government department, where the work is sometimes slow and decisions at the management level are slow to take. This results in some delays and re-planning of activities. It seems like money is not a concern in the department and projects routinely get extended.

Invaluable Experience with Fast-Paced Projects

You work with a very knowledgeable team that is ready to make use of the skills that you bring to the table. As long as you listen and learn fast, you can have the opportunity to take on a very wide range of tasks and experiences.

Still in pool, Interview attracts, first weeks kill due to discriminatory managers

I obtained my first offer in August 2018 after a very good process: successful at test,screening and interview-after about nine years and hundreds of tests. My first manager saw my high school diploma and what CCIC demanded for recognition and phoned me that no positions were available any more. I contacted a deputy minister and he sent me to a Quebec born manager, recently promoted as she married another favorite friend of the director. Micromanaging on me and chatting with everybody else was...my training survival for three months. Every word I said was reported in writing to the director and the ombudsman said I was disruptive when trying to say that my manger was extremely rude with me and providing me with false, wrong or hiding data so I fail when timing my performance in the first 3 months! I was fired in first week of January, in my 4th month of probation with false reports on my performance evaluation, equivalent to :not capable of anything. Thank you for destroying my life of non-born in Quebec nor in Canada-citizen. Who will pick me up from the pool where I sank? Nobody called me for deployment. Thank you!

Great learning environment with quality co-workers

I worked at PSPC during the summer term between May and August. Overall, I found it was a great environment to learn about various server related languages and software and I enjoyed my time there as I was surrounded by quality co-workers who were able to provide me guidance and help whenever I needed it. Management was great at consistently giving me engaging and challenging tasks which allowed me to grow and a programmer and communicator.

Pros

Inclusive and helpful co-workers, able to work remotely

Cons

Location is not very easy to reach

Poor management

Management tends to micro manage, spend time on useless make-work projects “reinventing the wheel”. They also do not submit paperwork and reports on a timely basis. Another irksome practice is nepotism- hiring unfairly.

Pros

Not many

Cons

Poor management.

Energetic, productive and respectful department

The PSPC department which I am working currently for is called: Energy Services Acquisition Program (ESAP). Majority of peoples working for ESAP are young persons with lots of optimism and energy. This positive energy is fuel by senior and regular directors including also supervisors,

Pros

Working from home and flexible hours

Cons

Slow approval process by other PSPC branches

It is a vibrant location with access to food court

It's a comfortable office environment and secured with access card. Coworkers are team players in day to day operations and we also work independently most of the time.

Steady Paycheque

standard 9-5 government job. steady work, no incentives to do more than is required. Procedures change all the time, turnover is ridiculously high and it's very difficult to get work done. Be bilingual if you want to get ahead in the federal government

Good for Government

Not crazy about working in the federal government and the department has gone through a lot of changes with Phoenix, and prior push towards SAP, but as far as working for the federal government goes, it is not a bad place to work.

Pros

telecommuting, flexible hous

Cons

some employees do not pull their weight, low pay
