    I have been working at Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Autonomy over your work - Opportunity for creativity - Free Parking CMHC has recently been moving through a series of changes that have resulted in shifting the organization from an old guard typical government bureaucracy to a modern mix of government and start-up culture. While the changes are ongoing, and a number of things still need to be addressed (such as the CYA email culture that can slow projects down), the result has been nothing short of spectacular in the short time they have been moving. Most of the major "changes" have been implemented I think, but if not, you should expect to have to be flexible. - People can be let go, so unlike the Federal Government most people you work with are competent and motivated - Interesting and engaging mandate - Ability to be a self-start and move around to find your fit

    Cons

    - The new career framework as rolled out in a sloppy way with little conversation regarding the cons along with the benefits. I understand the need to do this, but it could have been dealt with a bit better. In the current job environment, it is short-sighted to think employee anger towards a abysmal implementation would be confined to internal disagreement, as observed by the Glassdoor reviews below - Only Tim Horton`s and Cafeteria Coffee - Booking meeting spaces is becoming a nightmare - Parking is free, but as contractors can use the parking as well the lot fills up pretty early.

    Advice to Management

    - Be upfront with employees regarding changes. Especially with your recent hiring, most people can deal with change as long as they are able to plan for it. - You need to bring the corporation together more beyond the summer bbq and winter Christmas party. If not, at least provide a small budget for divisions to bring teams together.
