Not the place go to if you're in IT
I worked there for a short stint before I was fortunate enough to find something else by pure luck.

I was told that we'd be upgrading core systems in their infrastructure, however upon joining, was informed that the upper echelons in the company (the siblings who run the company) hold on to their money very tightly, and would not really approve of spending any money on infrastructure improvement and modernization.


Essentially, they had grand visions of improvement with nearly $0 funding being put toward any of it. and expected open source to work magically, out of the box and fix everything.


My direct manager, although a smart, and overall a nice guy(albeit ultra paranoid that everyone and their uncle are out to get their data, even google), was ill equipped to manage an IT department.


In my time there, in the position I was in, I could not see, other than through attrition, any possibility of moving up, and ultimately, only by one level.


They're very much stuck in the 1990s in their mentality towards technology.


I cannot recommend this for anyone in the IT field, it'll crush your soul.
Points positifs
friendly people, close to grocery store and restaurants.
Points négatifs
No opportunity for advancement, no spending for IT. No telecommuting.

Excellent place to work.
I was there as a co-op student and it was very okay for me. The company is more of a family business with tremendous reputation and excellent place to work.
Points positifs
Excellent incentives even as Co-op student

Good place for gaining experience, nice employees.
You learn to work with multiple different departments and people. It is a good place for people starting to gain experience. Very flexible if any issues arise in personal life (family, injury, appointments, etc.).

Amazing opportunity to see the world
My experiences with this employer are specific to my job title. Due to my technical skills I was sent into the field to maintain the fleet of aircraft.
I completely enjoyed the field work, I was given near complete autonomy for my day to day tasks. The scope of work was exciting and interesting. The people I interacted with were a pleasure to be around. The experiences and memories of international travel will stay with me forever.

Working in the office was not as satisfying. Direct management was ineffective at staying on top of day to day projects, employee activities, and lacked proper direction. My direct supervisors seemed overwhelmed and stretched over too many departments. Suggestions, recommendations and ideas were given little to no traction, and advancement and cross training were not implemented.

Office staff members are very pleasant to be around. social activities such as running groups, volleyball and company barbecues are encouraged.
Points positifs
international travel
Points négatifs

Gym, Noon hour volleyball, yoga and spanish classes for those interested.
A low stress company to work for when stationed at the Ottawa base/hangar. Life in the hangar is steady with few pressing deadlines and a wide variety of work. I arrive at 7am, have a half hour lunch and leave at 3pm. The mechanics share good camaraderie, and I have been given the task of crew chief on many heavy maintenance projects. Hangar management is laid back and we all generally get along. The most difficult part of the job is being sent out of country on field projects for 2 - 3 months at a time, but in doing so I am able to take 3 months vacation every autumn.

The hangar/aircraft maintenance department is somewhat like its own entity at times. Outside the hangar the company management is poor. Low wages, poor decision making, promising clients services they cannot deliver and often very poor living conditions on field projects makes an employee feel unimportant and under appreciated. Due to these poor habits and extreme micro-managing, there is much animosity throughout the company towards management.
Points positifs
3 month vacation each autumn, camaraderie with collegues in hangar
Points négatifs
very low wages for work required (long periods overseas in poor working and living conditions), extreme micro-managing, poor decision making habits in management, impression that employees are expendible, etc.
