    Like any national research facility - stressful but without matching compensation

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIf you are thinking of a career as a professor, this is a very good place to be, since it is a recognized national lab worldwide.

    ConsIt has, like many such science labs, an air of old school scientists.

    Very rewarding company to work for.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Vancouver, BC (Canada)

    ProsConstantly changing projects and priorities keep your professional skills well honed, the exposure to new scientific experiments and the systems associated with them require ability to acquire and apply new professional knowledge fast. Although not completely satisfied with the upper management performance, their availability to listen and desire to help is definitely present. The salaries are competitive. Your personal ability to deal with people is a definite asset, which will help you in your career growth.Very competitive benefits package including professionally managed pension plan.

    ConsSometime, usually during emergencies or commissioning of new systems or projects, your 24/7 availability is required. Being on a yearly salary, there is no overtime pay, just the extra worked hours being taken off. Some of the systems and installations are aging, require more attention, but there is shortage of staff to handle timely the refurbishing. Some time there is exposure to low levels of radiation, which is well regulated and within the recommendations of the regulating authorities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the employee posted about the most recent company financial situation, do not spread the resources over a broad range of projects.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
