Like most Canadian Crown Corporations, look good from afar but are far from good.
Technical Support (Ancien employé) – Ottawa, ON – 10 août 2018
Having worked at EDC for many years I found it to be stressful, intimidating and even experienced bullying while there. they flaunt all good practices because the management teams are not qualified or trained to deal with people. Over worked and under payed is the motto at EDC. Good benefits though, but you will need them as your health will invariable suffer long term.Come performance review time your over and above efforts will not be mentioned and every effort will be made to make one feel inadequate and empty. The culture is to keep employee raises to a minimum so that the managers, directors and VP's get more of the pie. Other Crown's seem to behave the same and are all interconnected somehow, like an old boys club.
None come to mind actually
Intimidating, lack of career advancement and very aggressive management.
