Good place to get Canadian Experience if you never had an IT job in Canada before. Can learn a lot if you are a self starter and capable of learning on your own or with very little training. I don't work there anymore.
Obscure tools may make it difficult to transfer skills to next position. Have to work to keep skills current. Family like atmosphere means employees are treated like kids and the management team never changes. I still have the same mother and father. Low turnover means stagnation and innovation is stifled because the management team protects their turf from all outsiders
Advice to Management
You have a great product that can be adapted to so many different financial products but you still stick to pensions where you are at the mercy of interest rates and the economy. Change at the top is needed to seek out new clients and develop new products on the CPAS platform. The same old vision doesn't work.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week – interviewed at CPAS (Scarborough, ON (Canada)) in June 2011.
Very disorganized. Must meet with PM and director, then subject matter experts, then HR director. They look for people with pension background and technical ability.
Don't take the first offer they give you; they will low-ball you. Put yourself at the highest level you can, because you don't know when the next positive review might be!
