One of the worst places I have worked. If you want a dynamic and rewarding career, look elsewhere

Human Resources Consultant (Current Employee)
Ottawa, ON (Canada)

I have been working at Government of Canada


Pros: Benefits are adequate. Better, more comprehensive benefits at the Municipal government… Cons: Uneducated managers who are seriously lacking in people skills.

Stop… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
