Terrible place to work
Engineer (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON17 February 2018
Stressed out overworked employees are the norm. Many backstabbing coworkers, unreal expectations. Bad work environment especially for junior engineers and other lower level positions.
Pros
Pay is okay, free coffee, free parking, interesting projects to work on.
Cons
Expect to do the job of 2 employees with no recognition for your hard work.

Just a bad place to work
Engineer (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON27 June 2017
If you are into low raises, long hours, working weekends, and blaming everything on those that are below you on the ladder... Then this might be the place for you.

This is a great job for project managers, and executives. This a very bad job for engineers and admin assistants.
Pros
Wonderful hardworking colleagues, coffee machines on each floor, benefits
Cons
Long hours, thankless job, poor raises, management has favorites.

Within own group, personal communication was better.

Systems Engineer (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON8 February 2017
Generally it is a good place to work. The engineering staff is knowledgeable but lack of communication among departments.

The design process is long because of too many interactions with other groups but there is some cooperation if you are tactful enough.
Pros
interesting work
Cons
steep learning curve
