    I worked at The Conference Board of Canada full-time

    Pros

    Opportunities to work on a variety of topics with interesting, intelligent people.

    Cons

    Working here was a stressful experience, thanks to the quarterly mass layoffs, having unrealistic timelines in which to produce results, and low office morale. Several of the senior management and executive team members are known bullies, but HR has yet to address the issue.

    This job looks good on a resume but it's not worth the drama.

    Advice to Management

    Stop paying overtime hours at a 50% rate of pay.

    Interview

    The interview was fairly easy, and the economists were pleasant to talk to. I was offered minimum wage for a position that requires a degree and relevant past experience. Pretty shameful practices if you ask me.
