      Short staffed

      Pros

      Only good thing is the stability of the company because it holds the money of all canadians.

      Cons

      No work-life balance. Short-staffed teams often missing things due to workload and people then spending time to fix the mistakes. Most people have no idea why they are doing something and missing the big-picture of their task. They are always busy not due to the complexities created by them and not having staff to deal with them. Stay away guys if you are looking for a job in this place. Its like an ocean of stranger fishes, noone cares about others, people just want to finish their work without thinking about the impact on others. When you look at your senior, you feel like that you dont want their role. The higher you go, the more stressed you are. They pay little incremental money for all the stress that comes with the job.
