Good people, but very bureaucratic.
Senior Analyst (Employé actuel) –  Vancouver, BC12 novembre 2019
Currently a lot of things are changing, so older reviews might not be relevant. This role is changing too, so it might not be the same in a year's time.

Senior Analysts produce reports on CMHC's data, and act as spokespeople in the media.

My biggest reason for not rating this place higher is that it's hard to have an impact as an individual, there is a lot of bureaucracy. There is a bit of a checklist culture...hard to do a good or bad job, you either get something done or not. There is a lot of talk about improving this, but it hasn't changed much yet.

Awesome for new employees... horrible for seasoned employees
Consultant - Promotion (Ancien employé) –  Saskatoon, SK21 octobre 2019
Project Management, Government Relations,

They provided a lot of training but very little opportunity to put it into practice.

Culture was cut-throat and very little transparency. Lots of surprises... often negative ones.

Best thing about the job was getting to spend time to help clients.

Very good workplace. Too much political interference.

Points positifs
Very good benefits. Very balanced organization

Too much bureaucracy.. long term staff were not treated nicely

Constant Change
HR Business Partner (Prairie Region) (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB28 avril 2019
Good organization, but undergoing constant change. Less direct connection with people as they are moving to a work from home environment. Technology is advancing.

I found the work environment under new management (Accenture) very unstable
Senior Programmer/Analyst (Ancien employé) –  Ottawa, ON28 janvier 2019
Ever since Accenture took over CMHC the turn over has sky rocketed.

There is NO one working there currently who joined there as part of Original Team.

Amazing place to work!
Student (Ancien employé) –  Ottawa, ON26 janvier 2019
They have a new work structure called ROWE. Makes the company the best place I have worked so far! The ideal work environment. The campus (national office) is the best, with a google type operation. Impressive for a crown corporation.

Laidback Workplace
Program Coordinator / Administrative Assistant (Ancien employé) –  Toronto, ON11 octobre 2018
Laidback workplace located close to highway for easy commuting outside of Toronto. Vibrant staff, friendly atmosphere, good compensation and benefits plan.

A company that wants to be greater but with lots of growing and cultural changes to go
Manager (Employé actuel) –  Ottawa, ON23 août 2018
A company that wants to be greater but with lots of growing and cultural changes to go. Goals and wanting to have a positive impact for Canadians is evident, but there remains a culture divided between implementing needed changes in an efficient manner and high resistance to change. Some of this is due to communication challenges and a global understanding of direction beyond mission and vision. The benefits are great and the overall compensation package is competitive - though there is a majority that focus solely on cash remuneration and have a "grass is greener" view. There is a gratification of knowing you contributing to society but frustration over continued bureaucracy and still not enough focus on clients.
Points positifs
Benefits, good vacation, moving towards a "Results Oriented Workplace"
Points négatifs
Frustration from not enough focus on clients, too much internal analysis and reporting

Mixed Review
Analyst (Employé actuel) –  Ottawa, ON11 avril 2018
Significant changes to the organization since 2014, not necessarily for the benefit of all employees, but definitely for the benefit to managers and senior staff. No tangible results or improvements to note for the average worker, some examples are:

- CMHC in Motion resulted in loss of approximately 350 employees
- Reduction in pension plan benefits effective Jan 1, 2018 resulted in a significant loss of corporate knowledge as a number of long term employees retired or resigned.
- Career Framework, recently introduced and promoted as beneficial to employees and their individual career path, turned out to be a euphemism as a means for significantly cutting salaries for all but those classified as management.
Points positifs
Work life balance good
Points négatifs
Very political environment.

Undergoing Constant Change
Manager, Finance Shared Services (Ancien employé) –  Halifax, NS21 mars 2018
CMHC is a great place to work as long as you are flexible and ready to change job functions at a moment's notice.

Pace of change is very fast, and deadlines are often unrealistic, meaning that senior managers are hired and fired regularly.

The work makes a difference to a large number of Canadians, which makes the CMHC a rewarding place to work if you are resilient and flexible.
Points positifs
Salaries are very competitive
Points négatifs
Long Hours, little recognition

The best place to work you could hope for
Loans Administration Supervisor (Ancien employé) –  Halifax, NS20 février 2018
Worked there for 10 years and loved it all; right from management on down it was a top class work place. Everyone was treated equally and given opportunities to learn and promote themselves as they wished. A wonderful work environment, created to allow employees to work under the best of conditions.
Points positifs
Learning opportunities, travel, meeting new people all over the country, sharing ideas, and feeling like a complete part of it all; actually like being part of a family.
Points négatifs
none I can think of.

Good place to Learn the corporate lifestyle.
Software Developer (Ancien employé) –  Ottawa, ON7 septembre 2017
It was a good place to learn how the corporate lifestyle is towards software development.

it helps us learn if it is something we enjoy or not, how to deal with it and how to detach our self from decisions that CEOs take even if, to our point of view, they are shortsighted.

it was an enlightening time, albeit short, and a very pleasant one. The people, the work and challenges were all opportunity to shine.

Sadly, by my own experience, I rarely saw opportunity to advance even if I was rated above the requirements of my postings in multiple reviews.
Points positifs
the people, the things you learn, the guidance of the senior in my field of work.
Points négatifs
heavily corporated way of doing things
