    I have been working at Export Development Canada full-time

    Pros

    People believe in the mandate of the organization (supporting Canadian exporters).
    Great benefits, work life balance.
    Full of smart people that work hard.

    Cons

    Obsession with newest trend (lean, management systems, etc) without understanding implications.
    Low turnover.
    Less than inspiring leadership in some areas.
    Reduced upward mobility if you don't have finance/insurance background.

    Advice to Management

    Force a little more turnover. Hold your leaders accountable

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Export Development Canada (Ottawa, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    met with an HR adviser for an hour interview, then with the project/business team for another interview. It was about 3 people so not too terrifying. They asked very basic interview questions at first, then more thorough project management type questions.
