I enjoyed working at Telesat mainly because of the people. I had great managers when I worked as a console operator and in records management. The company also had a gym right in the building so it was a great place to work in the day time and I enjoyed the exercise program in the early part of the day.
Awards were given for every five years served.
It was hard to advance in any position in the administrative field.
Working on the ANIK C satellite system as a satellite payload engineer gave me great software programming experience. Specifically working on Satellite wave tube technology, the central system in the satellite

Management not cooperative with staff leading to confusions and potential risk. Good skills and knowledge on my part avoided a lot of embarrassment, as outages for the entire network when a baseball game was being covered
Qualified work exlperience
Unusual and unpredictable hours
At TD, you walk in to colleagues smiling all over and fun and memorable work days. I learned how to work as a team with my team members and give legendary customer service with some being memorable. I had and still have the opportunity of meeting great people such as our management team that is there when you need them to be and co workers that will make your time at work worthwhile. The hardest part of the job, I would say is not being able to give a customer what they want, but the best part is knowing that you tried your best. This job in so many ways is a blessing to have. Great people, a good salary and amazing benefits.

When I first started working at Telesat it was great, all kinds of benefits, they were actually paying for my university degree at one time. They the company was sold to investors, which has really lowered the moral at this company. There is no longer an promotions or advancement, benefits have been cut back. However Telesat still does offer a pension and RRSP matching, so there are still a few good things left at this company, however I don't see myself going anywhere within this structure, it makes me sad because the company does have a lot of interesting components. It's unfortunate that they have no policies in place for training or advancement within the company.
