Great people to work with!

Project Management Intern (Former Employee) Calgary, AB (Canada)

Prossince this is a government job, work pressure and the urgency to meet deadline is low. My coworkers were all very nice and laid back, but when it's busy, they work hard.

Cons-I'd say people generally spend at least 40% of their time doing unrelated stuff at work, sometimes, there are just not many things to do. So the sense of achievement could be low.
-Salary is not very competitive compare with industry.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
