Run, Don't Walk.
anonymous (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON6 August 2018
This place will chew you up and spit you out.
The smart ones don't/won't/ stay -underpaid, overworked, and underappreciated.
Turnover is high for a reason. You either get out or they kick you out.
Nobody is safe here and everyone feels it.
Cons
toxic culture

A great place to build your skills in research
Research Associate (Current Employee) –  Ottawa East, ON11 April 2018
An active research organisation, constantly doing quantitative and qualitative research. Lots of opportunities to improve your skills with a fun bunch of colleagues. Regular publications mean you can build a public profile as a researcher. Good range of co-workers of all ages, and fields. Great location, out of the heavy traffic of the downtown core.
Pros
great flexibility, can work remote, flex hours, travel in Canada

Stagnant company culture
Direct Marketing Assistant (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON12 January 2018
Employees very supportive and onboarding was expertly executed. Overworked and underappreciated employees noticeably disgruntled. Few incentives to speak of. All about targets and tracking. Felt like a number.
Pros
onboarding, people
Cons
location, company culture

Going Downhill
Policy Analyst (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON9 September 2016
In all aspects, you would be smart to steer clear of working for the Conference Board of Canada. I've had many former colleagues who were let go without warning. Their salaries are poor so many of their employees count on an annual bonus of surplus revenue. Unfortunately, all the surplus revenue went to the CEO this year and no one else.

Good place to work
Direct Marketing Assistant (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, On22 March 2015
If you're good at what you do, you'll succeed here. Great co-workers, a lot of internal recognition. Management is good to you if you're good to them.
