    I have been working at MDA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People are great, salaries becoming more industry competitive, Management tries to be open, flexible schedule, good benefits package

    Cons

    Lost of shifting in senior management due to acquisitions and restructuring, no sick leave for 6 months as new hire

    Advice to Management

    Employees need incentives to hit project milestones / work more effectively, hit stretch goals, it goes a long way.
    Also better recognition for long term employees.

    Ingénieur Interview

    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
