    I have been working at NAV Canada full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Challenging, constant innovation, forces you to look for more, makes a lot of contacts within the company and you get the luxurious benefit of working from 8 to 4, weekdays only, unionized.

    Cons

    Internal communications could be better. It's interesting how this is a problem happening in all companies and nav is not different.
