    Pros

    Located in the heart of Ottawa, right next to the Byward Market. Very competitive salaries and benefits. Great cafeteria with good food at reasonable prices. Care about their employees.

    Cons

    Very vertical structure. Promotions are virtually contingent on the person above you being promoted as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up, loved my time here.

    Pros

    Colleagues are hard working, honest, fair, caring wonderful people. I believe most stay for the stability, pension and benefits which are very good.

    Cons

    I'm sorry to say that it is a culture of fear and confusion, with conflicting priorities and personal agendas. It is truly unfortunate. The waste of money is also tragic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Imagine if the Mint had competition here in Canada, they way it is run today, it would never survive.

    Pros

    The only thing good about working there is time off allocated from sick days and medical and rsp contributions.

    Cons

    The place if full of big ego's, and management is constantly pitting their employees up against one another, in an effort to have their department outshine everyone else. Favoritism plays a big role at the mint.
    This place is all about the blame game and not about solving problems. Lots of internal conflicts.
