Great place for people looking to begin a career in Finance

Associate (Former Employee)
Ottawa, ON (Canada)

I worked at Export Development Canada full-time for more than a year

ProsEDC is a great place for people looking to learn and get a good introduction to the world of trade finance. Also, you get good benefits, smart people and a gym to top it off

ConsStill has a very government mentality and people do not like change. If you are looking for a fast paced environment then EDC is not for you. Also, living in Ottawa isn't the greatest either.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive younger people more of a chance to showcase their skills.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
