I think it is safe to assume that the previous posts were written by disgruntled former employees wearing revenge-coloured glasses. It's easy to pick a company apart when you no longer work there and everything didn't go your way. I think the previous comments should all be taken with a grain of salt.
- Amazing internal knowledge resources
- The opportunity to learn about a lot of issues and topics impacting Canadians
- Great colleagues
- Excellent benefits, RSP, and vacation
- Supportive management that really care and recognize hard work
- Nice office with affordable parking
- Slower moving as a lot of stakeholders can be involved in decision making
- Non-profit resources (the learning opportunities, culture, benefits and colleagues make up for this)
Advice to Management
- Continue to invest in new ideas, new resources, and recognize and reward hard work and talent
The interview was fairly easy, and the economists were pleasant to talk to. I was offered minimum wage for a position that requires a degree and relevant past experience. Pretty shameful practices if you ask me.
