Great salary and that is all. Forget the culture.
Income Tax Auditor (Employé actuel) – Montréal, QC – 25 avril 2019
They do provide a solid training which lasts a year for income tax auditors. They are slowly changing for the better and try to recruit younger employees because many people are retiring. Most people work there for the S-A-L-A-R-Y and JOB SECURITY.
-HUGE LACK OF TEAMWORK: Almost no one likes the audit job. Only people who have been in the industry/private sector understand how boring the CRA is. They claim there is teamwork but no one is a "good" team player. You mostly work on your own cases and solve/discuss with your team leaders/managers. Most employees are like robots and their personalities are questionable. Don't expect to meet a "star" employee like in the private sector where most employees are mostly genuine and well rounded.
-CLOSED DOORS: You are forbidden to speak with managers unless there is a matter with your team leaders. Team leaders/management just don't even go to lunches with their teams. You are basically on your own or try make some friends there! (but most people don't care about anyone! yay, loner!)
-LOTS OF GOSSIPS AND FAVORITISMS: since the workload is not overwhelming, people tend to gossip a lot about anyone. If you fall in a certain team, you may have more chance to move up quicker. Otherwise, good luck!! Pass all the exams and make sure the recruiters like you.
