Telesat Employee for 12 years
Technical Program Manager (Current Employee) – Owen Sound, ON – 29 May 2014
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.
