    Pros

    Always been a dream place for space work in Canada. Exciting work with your contributions having a direct connection to human spaceflight exploration. Collegial work environment with a healthy mentoring culture. Respectful culture. Very inclusive, fun hockey league that has run for 30 years- indicative of healthy, social dynamic at office. Other social events foster team spirit. Students or new juniors are very much appreciated by existing team members for the new energy they bring. More experienced people appreciated for bringing ideas from other companies. ‘Office politics’ have tended to be fairly benign - changes in recent years have made such behavior even less tolerated. Pride in work -having one of your main products featured on the $5 bill is cool.

    Cons

    Building is a bit older and gym could use some newer equipment.
    Recreation club (voluntarily funded) was once quite vibrant has largely been replaced with less formal, ad-hoc organized activities. Would be nice if newer, younger staff took advantage of funding to organize more events outside of work.

    Ingénieur Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MDA (Toronto, ON).

    Interview

    L'entretien a duré en tout 4 heures, dont 3h d'entretien technique.
    L'échange avec l'ingénieur était fort intéressant mais la dernière partie avec le service RH était plus que traumatisante: la dame n'avait aucun respect pour moi et a juste dénigré mon profil, pourtant valorisé par l'ingénieur.
    Pour le volet technique, il n'y avait pas vraiment de questions pièges.

    Interview Questions

    • RH: Combien vous donnerez vous sur 10 pour l'entretien technique? Et qu'est-ce qui fait que ce ne soit pas 10/10?   1 Answer
