Excellent on paper, poor in execution
N/A (Ancien employé) –  Ottawa, ON9 août 2019
On the surface, the Bank of Canada is a fantastic place to work. The facilities are second-to-none, the benefits are great, and the pension is unmatched. If you're able to become permanent, it's almost worth it to put up with the other less than flattering aspects of the organization.

The workplace culture is uneven at best, and tiered at worst. If you're an Economist, you're treated with the most respect. All other employees are second class in this respect. There is a heavy emphasis on repeating the same taglines about the Bank's culture and how great of a place it is to work, and little in the way of enforcing it. Innovation is encouraged as much as the direct manager agrees with the innovation presented. New ideas are not encouraged unless they are approved by middle-management, which will work employees (Especially contracted employees) to their absolute limit. Working 12 hour days regularly is not unheard of, and in my experience, the Bank is almost unwilling to pay overtime for this (Manager dependent, of course).

If you're applying yo the Bank in a termed position, you have to know that you're likely replacing someone on leave. Your position will almost certainly not be extended. Permanent positions are a rarity at the Bank, appearing in approximately 5-10% of job postings. As such, the stress of job security is always present, and there is always implied pressure from middle management not to take advantage of HR's well defined programs for employees.

Overall, the Bank is great on paper. If you pull a good middle-manager, your experience will be positive. However,
  plus... there are too many examples of sub-par, cut-throat managers that it may not even be worth it to take the risk.  moins

Good if in the right place
Analyst (Employé actuel) –  Ottawa15 avril 2019
Working around ITS, there are a few areas that are great. Stay clear of Service Management or Cyber Security. These are both really toxic work environments. Cyber is tough because of workload, Service Management is purely a management problem.

Unlucky team experience in otherwise excellent company
Developer (Ancien employé) –  Ottawa, ON30 novembre 2018
What started as a fantastic experience slowly deteriorated as challenging possibilities became fewer, partially due to a misunderstanding, and I ended up learning nothing over the second part of my employment there. The salary discrepancy was ignored and never addressed, despite valid concerns. The team atmosphere is good and many hard-working and interesting people work there.

Excellent people that treat their employees very well
Research Assistant (Ancien employé) –  Halifax, NS19 août 2018
I was a summer student with the Bank of Canada for 4 months and thoroughly enjoyed it. I was an economics major at the time, and the job exposure, training, and the experience I gained will no doubt help me throughout my career. The people were the highlight, for sure! They were flexible with the hours, allowing time off for appointments, medical reasons, etc without making me feel like attending appointments was counterproductive. This flexibility really solidified my opinions about the people and the work and in turn made me work harder throughout my summer internship. I would recommend anyone who enjoys a culture where hard work is appreciated, recognized, and celebrated, as well as anyone who values a challenging workload without the added pressure to prioritize the job over your entire life.
Points positifs
Understanding people, excellent fringe benefits, flexible work hours, challenging work
Points négatifs
May need to travel frequently, salary ceiling is capped at a certain level

Comfortable place to have a career
Senior Economist (Ancien employé) –  Ottawa, ON9 juin 2018
Very good colleagues and a staff that is focused on the mission of a central bank. Typical office environment. Can take a while to advance if you are not a policy focused person - very limited space for senior researchers and low turnover.

I.T. Systems Analyst Intern (Ancien employé) –  Ottawa, ON29 mars 2018
Great place to work, but hard to get permanent or long-term positions. Good when it comes to everything else, except it is competitive when it comes to finding long-term positions or permanent positions.

A strong and collaborative management team leveraging the best of enabling technology to deliver services
Senior Business Architect (Ancien employé) –  Ottawa, ON16 avril 2017
The Bank of Canada is a critical component of Canada's economy and as such must be at the forefront of banking technology to ensure Canada's competitiveness on the monetary stage.

The work culture at the bank is one that inspires creativity, collaboration and cooperation between multiple divisions that must work together. Due to the critical role in Canada's economy, playing a role at the bank can be challenging as it is vastly important to ensure that critical systems are secured and withstand cyber security threats, which the bank and its team do exceptionally well.
Points positifs
well designed workspaces, ergonomic
